Hyundai also added extra safety features, turning the 2020 i10 is one of the most advanced vehicles in its niche.

The 2020 i10 arrives to compete with its Kia-badged sibling, the Picanto, and the popular Toyota Aygo in a really crowded subcompact segment. How does it compare to its predecessor and rivals? Let’s find out in the review below.

2019 Hyundai i10 N Line

2019 Hyundai i10 N Line

Not quite a full-fledged N model but close enough

The 2020 Hyundai i10 N Line is a performance-oriented trim of the third-generation hatchback. A range-topping model in the current lineup, the 2020 i10 N Line slots above the regular i10 and will fill the gap between the standard hatchback and the upcoming i10 N. The 2020 i10 N Line is the fourth Hyundai to sport the "N Line" badge as of December 2019. It joins the i30 N Line, the i30 Fastback N Line, and the Tucson N Line. The N Line is essentially a package that adds some exclusive features to the 2020 i20. Performance-wise, it’s not a full-fledged N model, but it does benefit from an exclusive turbo three-cylinder mill that adds extra oomph over the standard powertrains. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

2020 Hyundai I10 N-Line - Raising the Bar or Setting Low Standards?

2020 Hyundai I10 N-Line - Raising the Bar or Setting Low Standards?

The tiny Hyundai i10 N-Line 1.0 T-GDI is simple fun done right

We saw the new 2020 Hyundai i10 only a few weeks ago. Now, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Korean company revealed its sharpest version called the Hyundai i10 N-Line. Garnished with performance-inspired and N-developed decorations, the Hyundai i10 N-Line combines fresh wheel design, new bumpers, and other styling cues to evoke a certain hot-hatch quality.

The 2020 Hyundai i10 N-Line comes with a 1.2-liter, N/A gasoline engine developing 83 horsepower and 87 pound-feet of torque. However, you can have it with a turbocharged mill as well. The 1.0-liter, turbocharged three-cylinder unit provides 99 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque.

True, these numbers don’t feel like much, but the i10 would feel zippy with that one-liter mill. Here’s the reasoning behind that claim: the Volkswagen Up! GTI has a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder. And it is freaking awesome. The VW Golf Mk1 GTI from 1976 had a 108-horsepower engine with 101 pound-feet of torque. It was also awesome. The 2020 Hyundai i10 N-Line is a perpetrator of pure motoring fun - just as hot hatchbacks were some time ago.

2020 Hyundai i10 N

The Korean brand tackles the subcompact performance market with a new N model

The 2020 Hyundai i10 N is a higher performance version of the company’s third-generation hatchback. Set to be unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the tiny i10 will spawn a more powerful variant in 2020. At least that’s what the recent spy shots suggest. Our paparazzi spotted a slightly beefed-up i10 testing on public roads and we have reasons to believe that it will sport an "N" badge.

This will be the first time the i10 spawns a higher performance version. Although it’s been around since 2007, the i10 was never more than just a mundane city car with small engines rated at well below 100 horsepower. This could change with the third-generation model. Let’s find out more about it in my speculative review below.

The 2019 Hyundai i10 Is So Cute That You Just Want to Pet It

The 2019 Hyundai i10 Is So Cute That You Just Want to Pet It

Europeans just get the best city cars and the all-new Hyundai i10 stands testament to that

How the i10 city car has evolved from one generation to the next is the story of Hyundai’s growing confidence over the last few years. The first generation car looked humble and honest - it had the appearance of a kei car puffing itself up to look like something Europeans might find appealing. Next came the second-gen i10, with its bold face and overall design, and it was unashamedly European in the way it was perceived and much more proud-looking than the car it replaced.

Now we have the third-gen Hyundai i10 and it again marks a significant leap - this time into the league of the most desirable cars in its class. Compared to similar-size rivals, it almost looks like a premium automaker’s attempt at penetrating the city car class. It still looks distinctly European, just like its predecessor, but this time its design is more subtle and sculptural, and its face is less aggressive.

2017 Hyundai i10

2017 Hyundai i10

The company’s smallest car yet gets an extensive facelift

The second-generation Hyundai i10 was introduced in 2013, when the company’s smallest vehicle yet received a redesigned body, a more upmarket interior, and updated engines. Designed in Europe for the very first time, the new i10 continued the city car’s success story, with more than 200,000 units sold by July 2016. In 2016, the Korean automaker launched a mid-cycle facelift that brings new styling updates, more equipment, and the brand’s latest technology.

Refined inside and out, the facelifted second-gen i10 is arguably the most advanced city car Hyundai has offered to date. It also marks the debut of a styling element that will soon find its way on the rest of the lineup too, which is rather unusual for a vehicle this small and strengthens the i10’s importance among other Hyundai products.

"New i10 showcases strong build quality and our passion for detail, while also including many features from the segments above,” said Tony Whitehorn, president & CEO of Hyundai Motor U.K. Ltd. "The impressive package has made the i10 one of the best-selling cars in its class and popular with customers across the UK - a success story that the New i10 is set to carry on."

The small hatchback is set to make its global debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in early October.

2014 Hyundai i10

2014 Hyundai i10

Hyundai recently released an updated version of the i10, but it looks like the company is already hard working on the next-generation i10. Our spy photographers have caught the first prototypes out for a testing session, and, as you can see, the car is heavily camouflaged so it is pretty difficult to see the changes the new i10 will bring.

Still, it is pretty easy to notice that the grille has become bigger in order to show the family face. The car’s general lines have been slightly updated, so now the i10 will feature a clearer side profile and a more sloping roof. At the rear, the lights seem to have received a horizontal position compared to the vertical lights on the current version. In the front bumper, the fog lights have an LED stripe above.

The new-generation Hyundai i10 will make its world debut in September 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

2010 Hyundai i10 and i20 Fiorucci Edition

2010 Hyundai i10 and i20 Fiorucci Edition

Collaborations between auto manufacturers and designer brands are nothing new. It seems that every time a partnership is announced, you can bet that another one will make the headlines sooner rather than later.

Hyundai is jumping into the picture after announcing a special edition series of models for the i10 and the i20. The two special edition models were each given their own makeover, complete with individualized color combinations and exclusive features that aren’t present in other models.

Fiorucci first worked on the i10 city car, giving it a host of color combinations to choose from. These colors include Stone Black, Deep Blue Ocean, Oyster Gray, Sleek Silver, and Crystal White. The colors are also present on the car’s interior upholstery and are likewise complimented on the outside by a colorful grille and side mirror caps that come in a choice of two colors: verde lime or fuscia.

Apart from the special colors, the i10 Fiorucci edition also comes with its fair share of other features including a Park Assist system, a retractable soft-top, and a 1.1-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 66 horsepower.

In addition to the i10, Fioruccio also took a stab at making over the i20 supermini. Similar to the i10, the i20 is given five different color options, including Black Diamond, Dark Gray, Sleek Silver, Blue Spark, and Crystal White.

As for the i20’s interior, Fioruccio gave it a black and orange two-tone theme, a pair of glass sunroofs, a Park Assist system, and a 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 78 horsepower.

Pricing for the two special edition vehicles goes at €10,990 ($15,300) for the i10 and €14,990 ($21,000) for the i20.

Facelifted Hyundai i10 ready for Paris unveiling

Facelifted Hyundai i10 ready for Paris unveiling

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.
