In India, the i10 grand, enjoys a sweet spot between entry level and premium hatchbacks, was released by Hyundai Motors India in September last year. India, which is the second largest production facility (China being first) to Hyundai Motors in the world exports the Grand i10 to many countries including the West.
In India, the Grand i10 comes in two engine variants – 1.1-litre three-cylinder diesel and 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol. However, the 1.2-litre variant, which produces 82 hp and 116 Nm of torque for the Indian market, has been retuned to develop 86 hp and 122 Nm of torque for the South American model. The Grand i10 offers two transmission offerings – 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic.
