After Honda and Ford unleashing their much awaited products can Hyundai be left behind? No! What you see here is Hyundai's weapon of choice- the new Grand i10. Codenamed BA the Grand i10 will be a crucial product and will be slotted between the current i10 and the i20.
Looks are an important consideration and the new Grand i10 seems to have nailed it. It is not an overly futuristic design like the Verna or the Elantra, instead it carries the Hyundai Fluidic design philosophy with a more European touch. The design seems to be a bit like the Fiat Panda hatch sold in Europe and other markets. Anyways back to the looks and the sharp headlamps, hexagonal grille scream Hyundai. From the rear again the styling is quite sober and restrained but looks clean.
What you see here could be the top of the line variant sporting roof rails.The interiors have not been revealed but expect a good looking curvy dash and yes, lots and lots of equipment. Space is good and legroom/headroom will be of no issue. On to the engines and the talking point is that along with a petrol there will be a diesel which needless to say is very important. The 1.1 litre three cylinder diesel will be adequate in power (no power figures released) and also very efficient. The petrol is the same one found on the i10 and i20. The big issue is the price and the Grand i10 has very little room between the i10 and i20 but a base price of about Rs 4.5 lakh (or lower) could be on the cards. We will know more soon.
