Brace up; the 2019 Hyundai i10 is about to up the ante. Come next year, the i10 will be the most sophisticated car in its category as it boasts of high-end technology in comfort and safety.

Big changes have been made to the compact city car. Its exterior has been refurbished to be more appealing to the younger generation. Recognized as a third-generation ride in the compact category, the newly designed i10 will make its very first public appearance at the Frankfurt motor show set to go down next week.
