New Hyundai i10 is bigger, safer and better all round.
The ever popular Hyundai i10 is claimed to offer ever more value for money than ever before.
The all new Hyundai i10 will go on sale to the UK market early next year and will start from £8345.
Based on a new platform the basic model will lose the opinion of air conditioning in lieu of having more airbags and improved safety.
Moving up the Hyundai i10 range specification does increase.
The European models of the i10 will be built in Hyundai’s manufacturing facilities in Turkey as opposed to the old supply chain route of India.
In preparation the Turkish plane increased capacity from 120,000 vehicles per year to 200,000.
The Hyundai – Kia collaboration means that the same platform to used on the new Hyundai i10 will also be used for the next Kia Picanto. The Uk is currently the i10’s biggest market and Hyundai have big plans which they hope will mean securing a top two or three position is the A segment. As we all strive to make our money go further strong personal contract plans, low insurance groups and even lower road tax have all helped to secure the Hyundai i10 a strong position. In fact the Hyundai 110 was featured in the JD Power and What car awards 2013 where is came in 5th in the city car category. (top five positions where , Volkswagen Fox followed by the Toyota Aygo and Fiat 500 and the Smart four two with the Hyundai i10 in fifth.)
The meteoric rise of the i10 was assisted in part by the Government funded scrapage scheme which started in 2008. During the scrappage scheme consumers where encouraged to trade in older model vehicles for generous government funded and in some cases manufacture funded part exchange allowances.
Hyundai have budgeted to sell between 77,000 and 80,000 units of the i10 which is a massive 6,000 more vehicles than the result of 2012.
