AMSTERDAM -- Hyundai is touting a bigger interior and more equipment for its latest i10 minicar, which will be unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show on Sept. 10.
The i10 has a new dynamic design, as well as a comprehensive connectivity and advanced safety package, Hyundai said in a news release.
Hyundai is launching the i10 with the tagline "Go big" to emphasize its larger interior, the automaker's European marketing and sales chief, Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, said at a press event here to introduce the car.
The i10's wheelbase has been lengthened by 40mm to 2425mm to increase space inside the cabin.
The longer wheelbase is the second-longest in Europe's minicar segment after the Renault Twingo's 2492mm and ahead of the VW Up's 2,407mm.
The i10's luggage space remains the same at 252 liters, one of the best in its segment alongside the VW Up (251 liters) and ahead of the Twingo's 188 liters.
The i10 is 5mm longer overall, 20mm wider and 20mm less tall than the outgoing model.
Its wide front grille expresses a sporty character and incorporates the round LED daytime running lights. At the rear, two horizontal crease lines break up the soft surfaces of the boot and run into the taillight graphics.
