Hyundai is set to challenge Toyota’s upcoming iQ mini car with a vehicle it says will be a more functional and economical alternative.

Internally referred to as ‘green baby’, the new model could hit the market as early as next year and although no pictures are yet available, we are told the car may be based on the existing i10 platform (as pictured above).

The vehicle will be offered with one powertrain and trim level to keep costs down and will offer an options service (similar to that of Toyota's iQ) to ensure high personalisation levels are maintained.

Although Hyundai’s ‘green baby’ will most likely be reserved for Europe there is a slight chance we could see the minature vehicle here in Australia.
