Hyundai has been under some pressure lately. Its latest facelift of the Verna did not go to well with the crowds. Besides, new entrants such as the Ford Figo and the Chevy Beat are continuously eating into the i10’s share. In a scenario, where the Figo is available in diesel and the Beat is going the diesel way too, Hyundai has decided that it will sell the i10 with a diesel powerplant but till then its just sending the i10 for a small cosmetic surgery and the facelifted i10 was spotted near Chennai.
Under wraps and disguised, the facelifted i10 seemed to have new head lamps, new tail lamp clusters, revised bumper, indicators on the rear view mirror and a new front grille. Rumours also go on to say that Hyundai is testing its new diesel engine for the i10. Its high time Hyundai introduced the diesel for its popular hatch but we don’t know for sure yet. The facelifted i10 should hit the market in a few months time.
