    First-ever spy pictures of the new Hyundai i10 being tested in India, will be officially unveiled at next year's Frankfurt Motor Show.

    Hyundai is readying the replacement for the i10 and proof of this comes from the first-ever spy pictures of the car being tested on Indian soil.

    Though heavily disguised, it looks longer and wider than the current car and the silhouette of the grille behind the cladding suggests the new i10 follows Hyundai's ‘Fluidic’ design theme. Other clues pointing to this are the swept-back headlights, the low, elongated chin and the rising shoulder line. Top-end variants could get alloy wheels and rear parking sensors as well as fog lamps as standard equipment.

    Hyundai is also developing a new 1.1-litre common-rail diesel for use in this new i10. There will also be a new 1.0-litre Kappa petrol engine which will be more fuel efficient than the current 1.1-litre Epsilon motor. The modern, 79bhp, 1.2-litre VTVT motor will continue alongside the new engines.

    This new car, codenamed BA, will be officially revealed at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and will be launched in India thereafter.
