Hyundai has released a new trim level for its i10 city car and i20 supermini ranges.
Named ‘Play’, the spec is a typical mid-life update, bringing high levels of equipment for a lower price than customers would pay by adding all the additional features individually.
The i10 Play starts from £11,195 – matching its mid-spec SE grade on price. However, it heaps on the luxury features, giving the dinky city car 15-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, black door mirrors and, best of all, a seven-inch infotainment system with DAB and compatibility with smartphones through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The i10 Play is available with a single engine – the 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol, boasting 66bhp and a five-speed manual gearbox. It’s available in a choice of five colours.
The i20 takes a similar approach but beats its SE equivalent on price by £1,000. It’s available from £14,495 and features a similar specification to its smaller i10 sibling – 16-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, black mirrors and the same 7-inch infotainment display.
The i20 also comes in a standard two-tone paint finish, with a black roof to compliment the same choice of body colour as the i10. It’s available with either the 1.2-litre, 82bhp four-cylinder or the 1.0-litre, 98bhp turbocharged three-cylinder engines. Both are paired to five-speed manual gearboxes.
Both i10 and i20 models also feature exclusive ‘Play’ badging to mark them out from the rest of the range.
Play models are now available to order, with first examples already in showrooms.
