Hyundai has announced the pricing and specification list for the latest version of the i10 hatchback, which will be on sale in 2017.
The launch of the new generation means new technologies are to be fitted to the B-segment vehicle, including lane departure warning and forward collision warning for the first time.
For the i10, trim levels range from the base level S, which starts from £9,250, to the top end Premium SE that has a starting price of £12,800.
From the S specification, Hyundai fit 14-inch steel wheels, electronic stability programme and brake assist system, as well as a rear spoiler with integrated tail brake light. The lower-end model is fitted with a one litre petrol engine and five-speed manual gearbox.
The SE trim builds on that, with Bluetooth, DAB digital radio and the driver assist pack, which includes lane departure warning and forward collision warning. The SE also has the option of all three of the i10’s powertrains, including a 1.2-litre petrol and four-speed automatic pairing.
SE Blue brings in fuel-saving techniques, such as intelligent stop-go technology and fitting only four seats to save weight. With the SE Blue one-litre three-cylinder Kappa engine, it can achieve 70.6mpg.
The i10 in Premium trim includes smartphone docking, climate control and leather steering wheel, as well as privacy glass and 14-inch alloy wheels. All three powertrains are available at this trim level.
The top level trim Premium SE includes a seven-inch touchscreen with navigation, DAB radio and Hyundai’s LIVE system, which allows smartphone connectivity over Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
