    A punchy 1.2 model headlines Hyundai’s facelifted i10, launched to the media this week.
    Remapping the 1 248 cm3 four-cylinder Kappa engine has raised output from 55 kW to a healthy 64 kW. Economy is excellent, though, at 4,7 litres/100 km on the combined cycle.
    The 50 kW 1,1-litre is carried over in the entry level model. Manual transmissions are standard on both 1.2 and 1.1; the 1.2 can also be had with a 5-speed automatic.
    Features on all models:
    Air conditioning
    Electric front and rear windows
    Central locking
    Stereo RDS radio/CD player with MP3 compatibility
    Driver airbag
    USB and Aux connections for sound system
    Audio controls on the steering wheel

    Storage tray under front seat
    14-inch steel wheels
    Body coloured side mouldings
    Body-coloured side mirrors with integrated indicator lights
    Rear window wiper and rear window demister.
    In addition to this, the 1.2 gets ABS brakes and a front passenger airbag.
