2020 Hyundai i10 Shows Muscular Body in First Official Sketch

At the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany next month, South Korean carmaker is expected to unveil several novelties. Among them, the new i10, the A-segment car that has taken Europe by storm more than a decade ago. In preparation for the unveiling, Hyundai presented this week the first sketch of the new vehicle.

Set to be the third generation of the model, the car shows a more modern interpretation, with muscular lines intertwined with soft surfaces. At least this is how the car looks like in the sketch, and if experience ever taught us anything is that at times the real car is not exactly as advertised in initial drawings.

The sketch shows a vehicle with a wide front grille flanked by daytime running lights and triangular air curtains meant to improve aerodynamics. Invisible in this sketch, but revealed by Hyundai, is the pillar-mounted logo and the X-shaped C-pillar.

There are a few things we can be sure of because Hyundai took the time to detail the car a bit. These details don't reveal anything about engines and performance, but they do shed some light on the technologies that will go into the new i10.

First off, the i10 range will be fitted - including for the first time - with a series of modern technologies like Blue Link, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, wireless smartphone charging, and a rear-view camera.

Also, the 2020 i10 will be one of the most gifted when it comes to safety systems. For now, Hyundai revealed it would use things like driver attention warning, lane-keeping assist, forward collision assist, and high-beam assist.

As several other cars manufactured by the South Koreans, the new i10 has been designed and developed in Europe, and soon it will be assembled there too.

The 2019 Frankfurt Motor Shows opens its gates on September 12, so we expect more details about the new i10 to surface soon.
