Hyundai i10 news - Slightly less slow - 2008

Read more on:

OK, it’s about as sexy as lawn bowls, but
we like the Hyundai i10. Mainly because it’s cheap, but also because it’s Actually Quite
 Good.

And now Hyundai’s little city car looks
set to get just a bit better with the introduction of a new range-topping (and
never has that phrase looked more hyperbolic) 1.2-litre petrol engine.

Despite being 18 per cent more powerful
than the current 1.1-litre engine - up to a mighty 76bhp - and 20 per cent more
torqueful, the ‘Kappa’ engine retains the same fuel consumption and CO2
emissions as the smaller unit.

Happily, the 0-62mph time drops almost
three seconds to 12.8 seconds, allowing you to overtake cyclists and
pedestrians with something resembling ease.

The 1.2-litre
i10 starts at £7,575. Told you it was cheap
