Replacing the Atos/Atos Prime/Amica/Santro (except in India, where the lower-priced Santro Xing is still being sold below it), it is marketed below the Getz and i20 (which replaces the Getz in most countries).

Background
After the Santro/Atos Prime, Hyundai needed a model to replace it and started a hatchback project codenamed Hyundai PA. The car was to be manufactured in a new facility at Chennai, India.

The bumpers have also been redesigned with a new front grille to lend a more aggressive look. It also features a micro roof antenna, body colour door handle and the side indicator lights incorporated on the outside rear view mirror. The rear of Next Gen i10 boasts of sleek and elongated tail lamps, bold rear bumper with body coloured inserts as well as rear bumper reflectors and trendy full wheel cover.
Interiors
The new i10 has a two-tone beige and light brown colour. To impart a more aesthetic appeal, the interiors have been accentuated with chrome and silver accents at multiple points. Other interesting design features like metal finish centre console, new instrument cluster, blue interior illumination etc. have been added to offer a more luxurious and ergonomic experience. Apart from this, the Next Gen i10 brings in a host of highly innovative design features like first- in-segment gear shift indicator display (M/T only), digital fuel indicator, Bluetooth, steering mounted audio & bluetooth controls and multiple power outlets
Engines
i10 iRDE 1.1
The i10 was launched with a 1.1 litre (called iRDE engine) 65 bhp (48 kW; 66 PS) I4 engine - the same motor used in the Kia Picanto/Hyundai Atos Prime/Santro Xing. However, it produces less CO2 emissions than the Picanto
i10 Kappa 1.2
The i10 also comes with a 1.2 litre petrol Euro-5 compliant engine (called the Kappa engine), with the same CO2 emissions as the 1.1 litre version. The spark plug of the 1.2L is non-standard.
i10 Diesel
A 1.1 litre diesel variant is available but has not yet been introduced into the UK market.
i10 Electric
Hyundai recently launched i10 Electric in Delhi Auto Expo and is expected to be available in India by 2011. The i10-based electric car is called BlueOn.
i10 Kappa-2 1.2
In 2010 Hyundai launched a facelifted version of the i10 in India which uses a Kappa 2 engine with VTVT Technology to further improve performance of this engine. Hyundai engineers have taken the existing 1.2-litre 4-cylinder Kappa engine and added VTVT (Variable Timing and Valve Train). The i10 is the first small car in the country to receive variable valve timing making it, on paper at least, the most sophisticated 1.2-litre engine in its segment (the Honda Jazz also has an i-VTEC head but is a segment higher). This system, working on the intake side, helps in altering the valve timing and lift according to the situation and thus improves low-end responses and fuel efficiency. VTVT hasn’t increased the horsepower and it is still rated at 80 PS (59 kW; 79 hp). However the engine is reported to feel more refined and show very little vibration at higher revs
Accolades and Feats
Hyundai i10 was widely recognized as "Car of the Year 2008" by various automotive magazines and TV channels in India like BS Motoring,...
