The new, facelifted Hyundai Grand i10 has just gone on sale with prices ranging between INR 4.58 lakhs for the base Era trim level and INR 7.33 lakhs for the top end Asta variant (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Hyundai has worked to change quite a substantial bit in the looks department and, as a result, the new Grand i10 gets a new bumper, a remodelled front grille that houses the new round fog lamps, LED daytime running lights, a redesigned rear bumper and new 14 inch alloy wheels. The car also gets a little tailgate spoiler. The interior also sees some upgrades but remains similar to the outgoing model for the most part. Quality of materials used on the inside is rather good as well.
Where the company has put in the most effort is in the features section. This facelifted Grand i10 comes equipped with a 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system (which is what stands out most clearly as you step into the car), automatic climate control with a dedicated vent for the rear seat occupants, power adjustable and retractable rear view mirrors, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink compatibility, bluetooth connectivity, a cooled glove box, voice commands, a 12 volt socket at the rear, airbags for both front passengers, keyless entry, a reverse parking camera and more.
Hyundai has retained the 1.2 litre, 82 bhp petrol engine but they have tweaked it to improve the fuel economy figure to 19.77 kpl (17.49 kpl if you have the automatic). However, the diesel engine is a new and slightly larger one. The motor is a 1.2 litre, 3 cylinder unit that puts out 74 bhp and returns a mileage of 24.95 kpl. To improve efficiency, the company has also used an air curtain feature in the front air dam that allows air to flow into the wheel well, reducing drag and noise and improving brake cooling. The petrol version offers a choice between a 5 speed manual and an automatic transmission, while the diesel model is available with a manual gearbox only.
A 2 years, unlimited kilometres warranty scheme is provided for the new Grand i10 as well. With these upgrades, the Grand i10 is now equipped to take on its ever-lengthening list of competitors. Listed below is the full price list (ex-showroom, Delhi) of the facelifted Grand i10:
