Hi guys,

I'm from South Africa and just bought an i10. I have a small issue though, most of the dealers kept mixing up the 1.1 and 1.25 models, i.e advertising a 1.25 but its actually a 1.1. I have a suspicion that the '1.25' that I bought is in fact a 1.1! It is a 2012 model, how do I tell which one I have? Both models have the exact same specs except the 1.1 does not have ABS and factory alarm. I haven't tested the braking to see if ABS kicks in and it has an alarm fitted but I'm not sure if its factory fitted or not.

Any help would be highly appreciated!

open the bonnet and look behind the battery. lower down on the chassis leg you will see the ABS pump with the four brake pipes protruding from it. probably marked with a label that says ABS6 on it.
also above the door hinge on drivers side pillar is a tag that states car model eg 1.2 85ps .

Many thanks for the reply, the car does not have the ABS pump and the pillar sticker is missing. I called another dealership and supplied them with the VIN number and they confirmed that it is a 1.1! Shocking that a Hyundai dealer would do this!

The 1.1 has a cam belt the 1.25 has a chain and a lot more power. If they sold it to you as a 1.25 get your money back.

I spoke to the sales manager and not surprisingly they claim to have not known the car was a 1.1. Embarassing really as its their product! He has agreed to find a replacement 1.25 for me and I'll use the current car till he does
