Hyundai Motors has unveiled the all-new i10 at the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA). The newest model in the company’s i range features a new dynamic design, as well as a comprehensive connectivity and advanced safety package, all of which is designed, developed and made in Europe. One of the key features of the new i10 is its spacious interior.
Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, vice president marketing and product at Hyundai Motor Europe HQ, said, “The all-new Hyundai i10 is the latest example of our democratization of new technologies for our customers. We are launching it with the tagline ‘Go Big’ to emphasize the feeling that customers will get from this uncompromised city car – it might seem like a small car, but it makes a big statement.”
Extra width has been created in the new i10 interior by the air vents protruding the door trim, which is designed to visually extend the dashboard and guide the eye toward the large storage compartments in the door. In addition to the glove compartment storage, an extra open storage compartment has been integrated above the glove compartment on the passenger side. Four different interior color combinations offer customers even more scope for personalization.
The i10 is available as a four- or five-seater model and has 252 liters of luggage space, making it among the best in the vehicle segment. The car also features a range of new connectivity features, including an 8-inch color touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and wireless charging.
The company’s full-featured Bluelink telematics allows users to search for points of interest and send the search results directly to the car’s satellite navigation, which means it is set up even before they get into the car. Other features include Find My Car, which allows drivers to locate their vehicle easily in an unfamiliar setting, as well as parking space and fuel station search, which offer live prices and availability.
Customers who choose navigation receive a subscription to Hyundai LIVE Services, which offer real-time traffic and weather conditions as well as the position of speed cameras in countries where this is permitted by law.
