Frankfurt 2013: New Hyundai i10 Makes Public Debut [Live Photos]
The new model, shows improvements over its predecessor in almost all areas. Design-wise, you'll notice a more mature look with a huge air intake at the front, that has almost no use at all, as the biggest engine in the line-up is a 1.25-liter, 4-cylinder unit that won't need that much air.
The most interesting changes come in the practicability area, where the i10 learned a couple of new tricks. The new car has class-leading space in the luggage compartment, with 252 liters and 1,046 liters with the rear seats folded.
Furthermore, according to the manufacturer, the new model is 80mm longer, 65mm wider and 50mm lower than its predecessor, giving it the best cargo space and legroom in its class.
The new car was designed in the old continent (as part of the company's 'made-for-Europe' product line-up) at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre (HME TC) in Rüsselsheim, Germany and it will be built at the plant owned and run by the South Korean giant in Izmit, Turkey.
