The i10, a city car competitor for the Volkswagen Up, Skoda Citigo, Seat Mii and Kia Picanto, has been on sale in its present type from 2013; this mid-life refresh is developed to keep the vehicle competitive in the face of increasing rivalry.

Design updates for this i10 are small, and generally focus on a new front grille and LED daytime running lights. There’s likewise a reprofiled bumper at the rear, and a brand-new shape for the side moldings. Other exterior functions consist of a new 14in steel or alloy wheel design.
