Improvements have been made to the rear and it looks better now, looks a lot more like i20 now from the rear. The front end, well I did not like it that much. The interiors are a welcome change from beige as it used to get dirty very fast and had maintenance issues. But the one of the major selling points for i10 were the refreshing beige interiors, atleast when the vehicle is new.
Interesting to see the customer response for this one!!!

The most imp upgrade is the dash board color. I think now this color bord will not reflect much.

New Fog lamp design is excellent.
Cool Blue illumination..
Reverse parking sensor is a godd idea. But is it really necessary for i10??
Driver seat height adjustment is a nice feature to have.

The car looks more mature and aggressive now.
The feature list is impressive and definitely a welcome move by Hyundai.

The i10 facelift definitely looks impressive. I like especially the heated ORVM's. It will be quite useful during rains.

Looks much better that the previous version. Used to hate the way it looked from the front earlier. Should do even better now with better looks and ofcourse a new engine. Plus I am very impressed with the ABS and airbags being offered in a segment lower than the i20. I dont think any of the competition from the MAruti stable offers the same. Maruti Suzuki better watch out!

Default What is the price?

A very important question Sid, what is the price? And with addition of variable valve timing, do you have any numbers for the fuel consumption?

Heated mirrors are a boon during the monsoons. If I am not mistaken - this (alongwith gear shift indicator) is a segment first! (Is it possible to add heated + elctrically adjusatble ORVMS to current gen i10?)
The seat height adjustor is also becoming a standard equipment now. Good that they added it.
Bluetooth / steering controls / USB / electrically adjustable orvms - nice to have features.

Hope they price this one suitabley. This i10 has the possiblity to become segment leader with all the gizmos.

is that brown in the dash same as in i20?

The dark colour at the back-side of the front seats is good, earlier beige used to look bad due to shoemarks of rear seat passengers.
Gear change indicator in all variants and tacho too in all variants.

Just read an article on The Economic Time site quoting the pricing - Interesting and very attractive introductory pricing that spans across the spectrum. Looks like Hyundai wants to attract all prospective Beat, Figo, Ritz and Polo buyers to the i10. Smart move, with the Diwali season just around the corner.

Hyundai re-launches i10 at Rs 3.48L-Rs 5.91L

Hyundai Motor India on Thursday introduced a new version of its compact car i10, offered at an introductory price of Rs 3.48 lakh to Rs 5.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The new car, 'Next Gen i10', which made its global debut here today, will be replacing the existing i10.

"We have further boosted the design element and packed the car with safety and comfort related technological innovation...and we believe this will set new benchmark in this segment," Hyundai Motor India Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer H W Park told reporters here.

The Next Gen i10 will be available in two petrol engine variants of 1.1l and 1.2l. While, the 1.1l has a mileage of 19.81 km per litre, 1.2l engine will deliver a fuel economy of 20.36 km per litre, the company claimed.

Slide show with an introduction to the new features is available on this page: Check out bold new avatar of Hyundai i10 - Pictures - Pictures/Videos - News in Pictures | Economic Times

Just called up Nimbus Hyundai in Sector 5, Noida. They said the car will be available in the showroom tomorrow. I asked for a TD, and they said it should be available within the next week. I enquired about the price and the SA said that Hyundai's hiking the price by about 5-7K for the 1.2 Magna variant.

It is not, if the Fabia and the i10 are in the same segment. (C)

I doubt if the new Fabia has it though! Skoda has already stripped off the rear demister, cooled glovebox, etc.

I personally preferred the beige color of the dashboard. Seemed to meld with the beige color trim of the doors. As for the FE, in pic 3, the FE is stated to be 20.36 kmpl... does that make it #1 again? Is the folding key a new feature too?
