Hyundai Reveals Euro-Spec i10, Looks Sportier Than Grand i10 Nios
Third-gen compact hatchback will continue to be called the i10 in international markets.
It will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September this year.
It looks a lot more sportier than the India-bound Grand i10 Nios.
The i10 will get the Venue’s Blue Link connected car technology.
It will also get wireless charging like the Grand i10 Nios.
Korean carmaker Hyundai has revealed the first sketch of what will soon become the third-gen i10 for European markets. This will be equivalent to the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, but both the cars will feature slightly different styling.
This third-gen i10 will be unveiled in production-ready form at the upcoming 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. This iteration of the compact hatchback will be limited to markets abroad while India will get the Grand i10 Nios in late August.
Hyundai has confirmed that the third-gen i10 for Europe will feature its Blue Link connected car technology. Hyundai has not yet confirmed if the Blue Link tech will be offered on the Grand i10 Nios. The chances of the Grand i10 Nios receiving this tech is rather slim as the official images of the car does not showcase the IRVM with certain controls for Blue Link like seen on the Venue. However, it will come with wireless smartphone charging, which is a feature that is generally reserved for cars a couple of segments above.
The new i10 has been spotted undergoing tests on public roads in Europe. From the spy images, it clear that the i10 shares details such as the headlights with the Grand i10 Nios. However, the Euro-spec hatch looks a lot more funkier than the Nios.
The teaser sketch suggests that the i10 will get circular LED DRLs flanking a more aggressive version of Hyundai’s signature cascading grille. Unlike the Nios, the i10 gets a split design for the grille. Meanwhile, the air curtains on the front bumper of the new Euro-spec i10 makes it look a lot more sportier as well.
