Hyundai-i10-003

Here are some spyshots of the next-generation Hyundai i10 testing in Europe. The successful Atos replacement city car has been around since 2007, and a mid-life facelift came in 2010, so it’s about time for a new model. Hyundai has said that the new i10 will make its world debut at this year’s Frankfurt show in September.

The front and rear end of this mule is full covered, but we can see that Hyundai has retained the i10’s lower window line that kicks up at the end, now at an even sharper angle. The new Hyundai i10, which shares underpinnings with the Kia Picanto, is said to be wider, but lower than the current car, with a slightly longer wheelbase. Hyundai’s benchmark is the Volkswagen up!

As of now, Hyundai has almost completed the major expansion of its Turkish plant, which will double capacity to more than 200,000 units and feature production of the new i10, which has been moved forward to the end of September for the European and Turkish markets.
