Hyundai i10 Under Consideration For US Market

Illustration for article titled Hyundai i10 Under Consideration For US Market

Automotive News is reporting that Hyundai is watching the Smart Fourtwo US launch very carefully to see if an adaption of its Indian-built Hyundai i10 would be right for these shores. In its current form, the i10 is little more than an 1,800-pound coffin, but if it were to see US introduction it would get about 400 pounds of extra anti-occupant-smooshing reinforcements. In India, the car gets a whopping 56 MPG, and even with all that extra heft it would still be a high-mileage darling in the four-door micro-car market. [AutoNews via NextAutos]

Don't you just want to ring it's little neck to the rev limiter? And shock it's transmission planetaries into terminal melt-down while attempting to create fog?

How about those cute little wheels. I could put them on my wheelbarrow or a shopping trolley.

When I think of a small Hyundai, I think Gary Coleman. Cute and funny, but I still want to punch it's lights out!
