- Hyundai Grand i10 compact sedan release date- February 4, 2013
- Launch soon
- Price to be close to that of i20
That the Hyundai Grand i10 compact sedan is headed our way is now a well known fact. While several reports on cyber space have been claiming that Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) would unveil the upcoming model on February 4, it is only now, in an invitation to the launch event, that the manufacturer has confirmed the Hyundai Grand i10 compact sedan release date.
The upcoming model will be unveiled on the February 4th, on the first PRESS day of Auto Expo 2014 and Hyundai Grand i1o compact sedan launch is expected to happen late next month. Price of this new model could be close to that of the i20 hatchback and the soon-to-be-launched model will be a successor to the now-defunct Accent sedan.
The upcoming model will be Hyundai India’s first compact sedan ever and will lock horns with the highly popular Maruti Swift Dzire and the Honda Amaze. While several rumors have been stating that Hyundai would launch the Grand i10 compact sedan with the Accent moniker, we believe that this car could be simply called as Hyundai Grand Compact Sedan (CS). The upcoming model will play the perfect younger sibling to the Verna in carmaker’s product portfolio for India.
As is a given, the Grand i10 CS will borrow plenty from the donor hatchback. Powering the upcoming model would be the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.1-litre diesel engines that can be found under the hood of the newly launched hatchback. Akin to the hatchback, the Grand i10 sedan would come with a long features list that would include an audio player with in-built storage/aux/USB/bluetooth, multifunctional steering wheel, cooled glovebox, rear AC vents and so on.
Thanks to high amount of parts-sharing, along with the excise duty benefits being provided to cars measuring less than 4 metres in length, the upcoming compact sedan could be priced ultra competitively.
