An Example:

If your 10th VIN character is A, then it represents the Model Year - 2010
If your 19th VIN character is G, then it represents the Month of Manufacture - July
I find that currently VIN for Hyundai starts with MALA......

My i10 Grand has the following VIN MALA8151DLEM076187*B hence it is 20 digit where the 11th number is year and 20th number is month


Hence may be a good idea to review the VIN's again and update this thread.

Cheers
