The Grand i10 is basically a re-clothed 2014 Hyundai i10, prepared especially for markets like that of India. However, the Grand i10 won’t replace the i10 and would be positioned above the last gen model.
The new Hyundai Grand i10 has been been launched in India in both petrol and diesel engine variants. The petrol variant is powered by the same 1.2-liter Kappa2 engine that powers the i10 and the i20. The diesel engine variant gets a newly developed 1.1-liter three cylinder diesel engine that has been derived from the i20′s 1.4-liter CRDi motor and has 71 PS of max torque.
The Grand i10 benefits from the carmaker’s Fluidic design language and looks as contemporary as any other modern day Hyundai. There is no denying that the car’s exteriors borrow not even a single design cue from the last gen i10 and yet, it would be safe to term the design as evolutionary. The interiors too look as contemporary as the exteriors and exude style and premium-ness.
The flagship variant comes with various segment leading features such as a 2 Din integrated Audio system with 1 GB of internal memory, Steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, a cooled glove box, Rear AC vents, Push button start, Smart Key and Electronically Adjustable and foldable OVRMs. Other premium features include Driver Side Auto Down power window, Rear parking sensors and 14 inch alloy wheels.
It would be interesting to see if the Grand i10, which now becomes the smallest Hyundai to have a diesel engine option, would put an end to the high popularity that cars like the Ford Figo and Maruti Ritz enjoy.
