Hyundai i10

The 2008 Hyundai i10 is an exciting new city car, boasting to be affordable, fun-to-drive and practical, without compromising quality and equipment. In spite of its compact overall dimensions of 3,565mm in length and 1,595mm in width, the i10 features a wheelbase of 2,380mm, which is extremely long for this class. The i10 gains refinement and handling attributes with the wheels pushed far into each other, also ensuring more space inside for people and luggage. Its prices are expected to be less than 6,500 EUR with the entry-level model having air conditioning as standard. The i10 comprises a six-speaker CD/MP3 stereo, body coloured bumpers, 14-inch wheels, electric power steering, tinted glass, central locking, four opening windows with electric operation at the front and a proper tailgate replacing the simple piece of glass, features that make this car model highly attractive. High safety standards are offered through the four airbags with a passenger side cut-off switch, allowing a child seat to be fitted in the front of the car if required.
A 67PS, 1.1-liter petrol engine mated to either a manual or an optional automatic gearbox, will power all i10 models, while ergonomics is improved by the gearshift mounted on the centre console and thus, freeing up the space between the driver and the passenger seat. A five year warranty will cover the i10 and the first i10s are set to arrive at Hyundai dealerships in March 2008.
