The Hyundai i10 is a 5-door hatchback subcompact produced by the Hyundai Motor Company. It was launched in October 2007, replacing the Hyundai Atos in some markets. The i10 is produced in India at Hyundai's Chennai plant for the domestic and export markets. It is positioned near the lower end of Hyundai's hatchback subcompact range (above the Hyundai Eon). Hyundai started development of the i10 to replace the Hyundai Atos, also known as the Santro. The development for the concept was code-named Hyundai PA. The car was targeted primarily at the Indian market and intended for production in India, given the popularity of hatchback subcompacts in the country. The i10 has a large gaping air-dam, pulled-back headlamps, chrome-lined grill, integrated clear lens fog lamps, a bonnet that has a clam shell hint and a rear window with an upswept kink. The tailgate has a chrome-lined boot-release handle and an integrated roof spoiler on the top- end versions.
