We knew it wouldn’t be long before Hyundai decided to do some facelifts on a number of models that will incorporate styling elements based on the new Tucson SUV.

Now it looks like the company is doing just that. The Korean-based manufacturer is giving the i10 a facelift with a more aggressive front fascia that takes its cue from the Tucson. Not only that, the three-year old city car will also get new headlights, a new bumper, and the addition of turning signals on its side mirrors.

Apart from the aesthetics, the i10 will also be given a power upgrade in the form of a new 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that churns out 68 horsepower and produces less than 100g/km of CO2 emissions. You won’t mistake this car for a speed demon, but for a fuel-efficient set of wheels that will take you from point A to point B, the revamped i10, which will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show, is the way to go.

I don’t think face-lifted is the right thing to say about this one. It should be called
corrupted Hyundai! AHAHA! I don’t see any renovation of this one. I think they need more research to call it face lifted Hyundai.

hmm. Based on the list that I have seen the Hyundai Tucson is a best choice as a car for woman. However, when it comes to car itself, I would say that I’m not that impressed on its speed performance.

facelift huh? It looks like a MINI. But though, I bet there are a lot of alternative cars in the market that has a better engine.

I’m really tired of facelift. Most of the cars were facelifted and once they’re done with the upgrade it will be later on called the “NEW VERSION”. So sick!
