With petrol and diesel prices skyrocketing, alternative fuel powered vehicles are in great demand. Hybrid, CNG, electric are few of the alternative fuel sources that car manufacturers have been working on for more better cost efficient products.
One such step has been taken by Hyundai Motor India that introduced a new LPG variant of its hatchback Grand i10. The new hatch has been priced at Rs 4,96,034 (ex-showroom Delhi) and will only be available in a single ‘Magna’ variant. The LPG variant will be powered by a smaller 1.0 Kappa petrol engine.
An official statement released by Hyundai states, “The Euro 5 ready, 998cc Kappa petrol engine is equipped with latest Dual VTVT technology and is designed to deliver high engine performance, with enhanced fuel efficiency and low emissions. The advanced 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine churns out a maximum power output of 68 bhp and peak torque of 94Nm at 3500 rpm. The engine is coupled to the five-speed manual transmission which provides smooth gear shifts. The car delivers an impressive fuel economy of 20.3 Kmpl (ARAI Certified).”
Hyundai Grand i10 made its debut in September last year and has been placed between the company’s i20 and the i10. Hyundai provides premium features such as smart key, push button start/stop, a double DIN audio system with 1GB internal memory, Bluetooth connectivity, Aux-in and USB connectivity, steering mounted audio controls, A/C vent for rear passengers, rear parking sensors, glove box cooling and electric ORVMs in the Grand i10.
The petrol variant of the Grand i10 come with a 1.2-litre Kappa engine, that produces 81 bhp and 116Nm of peak torque. Diesel, on the other hand, with a 1.1-litre three cylinder U2 CRDi engine, produces 69 bhp and 163Nm of torque.
