Had seen a similar (or perhaps the same?) LHD i10 tanking up at the IOC petrol bunk opposite the airport.

Funny thing was, they had a crash test dummy strapped into the other seat

Hyundai has started the productionof i10 only india. they play to export to all other contries from here. So they must be testing for a country where road conditions are similar to India.
