Updated i10 should keep Hyundai at front of class
HYUNDAI'S excellent i10 small car is getting a raft of improvements for 2017, including upgraded infotainment, satnav and safety equipment.
New bumpers front and back, Hyundai's new family grille and LED daytime running lights are the main changes on the outside, while lane departure warning and forward collision warning can be ordered as part of a 'driver assist pack'.
Posher models get a new seven-inch touchscreen satnav system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto makes it easier to connect your smartphone of choice. The navigation systems also comes with a seven-year subscription to receive real-time traffic information, weather updates and other road updates.
Hyundai has tweaked the steering and front suspension to improve ride comfort and allow less suspension noise to enter the cabin.
Two engines, both petrol, are offered - a 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre - and gearboxes are either five-speed manual or four-speed automatic.
The cheapest i10 is the S, with prices starting at £9,250, and the range-topping Premium SE starts at £12,800.
