to Europe later this year, and it will publicly unveil the car at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 10. The new car is larger and has been designed and engineering for Europe. Hyundai will build the i10 at its European factory.

The latest i10 is 80mm longer overall, 65mm wider and 50mm lower than the previous generation, which translates to a 10% boost in cargo capacity to 252 liters with all of the seats up. The wheelbase is 5mm longer. 

The look of the new generation could be called a more dynamic version of the current car. It retains the one-box design but with Hyundai's hexagonal grill. The black trim strip along the lower portion of the side accentuates the way that the body widens at the rear fenders. The rear gets a thorough redesign with horizontal, rather than vertical, taillights and more sculpting around the rear hatch. It is not the most interesting looking little car ever, but it is an improvement over the previous generation.

"Every aspect of the car has been designed and rigorously developed to meet the demands and needs of European consumers.  New Generation i10 fully embodies Hyundai’s ‘true value’ proposition, bringing higher levels of features and functionality than many buyers would expect to find in a vehicle of this segment,” said Allan Rushforth, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Europe.

Hyundai has said nothing about the engine range for the new generation.

The new i10 is attempting to sway some luxury-oriented drivers away from alternatives. The latest generation will have options including automatic climate control and heated leather steering wheel.

Hyundai designed and engineered the i10 in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and it will be the first Hyundai A-segment car to be built in Ízmit, Turkey. Production will begin in September.
