the same lines of the Santro in terms of being a sensible, comfy and cost
efficient family car. The results are certainly in favour of the i10 and have
proved that i10 has all the right ingredients and could well go on to become a
force to reckon with in the small car segment. Hyundai does not want to rest on
its past laurels and is looking to take the mantle higher with launch of a next
generation engine for the Hyundai i10.
six headed grille for the new Hyundai certainly gives in that extra dash to the
car and makes the car look much more daring than ever before. The huge air dam

engines also get a special coating on the piston and rings for reduced
friction. The intake and exhaust valve diameter has been increased along with
an increase in lift for better breathing. This invariably leads to better power
delivery of up to 68bhp. The car also notches a higher torque from the current
levels of 4000rpm and the kappa engine seems to be the direction ahead for the
upcoming cars of Hyundai as well.
