Hyundai has revealed prices for its new i10, which will go on sale in the UK towards the end of January 2014.
The second generation i10 will be 80mm longer, 65mm wider and 50mm lower than its predecessor. It will be offered with two petrol engines: a 1.0-litre unit which will allow for acceleration from 0 – 62mph in 14.9 seconds, and a 1.2-litre unit which will complete the same run in 12.3 seconds. Top speeds will be 96mph and 106mph respectively.
There are three trim levels to choose from, with the entry-level S model costing from £8,345. It comes with 14-inch steel wheels, central locking, cloth trim, electric front windows, a CD player with USB input, daytime-running lights and a tilt adjust steering wheel.
Upgrading to SE trim, which is priced from £9,295, will get you remote central locking, electric rear windows, electric heated door mirrors, body-coloured door handles and mirrors, driver’s seat height adjustment and a black B-pillar.
Top-spec Premium trim cars start from £9,995, with the range-topping model costing £10,495. They’re equipped with 14-inch alloys, Bluetooth with voice recognition, steering wheel controls, LED daytime-running lights, front fog lights, rear speakers, door mirror indicators and a leather steering wheel.
Overall, the new Hyundai i10 will be slightly more expensive than the current model, but its release should also contribute to a fall in the price of used i10 vehicles. Listings are at CarVillage.co.uk and CarDealerLocator.co.uk.
