Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Turbo Is A Warm Hatch For Rs 7.68 Lakh


Hyundai is offering the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine in two variants: Sportz and Sportz Dual Tone

 

  • The Turbo version commands a premium of Rs 1.25 lakh over similar standard petrol variants.
  • The 1.0-litre T-GDI motor develops 100PS and 172Nm.
  • It comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
  • Bookings have already commenced.

Hyundai has launched the Grand i10 Nios with the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine at Rs 7.68 lakh. We had already reported about the imminent launch and the actual prices a couple of days ago. And as we mentioned, there are two variants on offer with the turbo petrol engine:  Sportz and Sportz Dual Tone. Bookings for the hatchback have already started at dealerships across the country. Here’s the variant wise pricing:

  Grand i10 Nios Turbo Grand i10 Nios Premium
Sportz Rs 7.68 lakh Rs 6.43 lakh
Rs 1.25 lakh
Sportz Dual Tone Rs 7.73 lakh Rs 6.73 lakh

As you can see, the Turbo versions are priced at a premium of Rs 1.25 lakh over similar variants of the Grand i10 Nios with the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. 

Note, though, that the 1.0-litre turbo engine is not offered in the top-spec Asta variant. Although the Sportz variant comes with ample features, you’ll still miss out on kit like wireless phone charger, push button start, adjustable rear headrests, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rear wash and wiper. 

The main differentiating factors from the standard i10 Nios are some subtle changes such as the red ‘Turbo’ badging in the front grille, a new front bumper and red accents in the cabin. The biggest and the best change, however, is the BS6 1.0-litre three-cylinder TURBO GDi petrol engine that develops 100PS of power and 172Nm of torque. Transmission duties will be taken care of by a 5-speed manual transmission. The same engine is also used to power the Hyundai Aura and the Venue subcompact SUV.

In comparison, the BS6-compliant 1.2-litre petrol engine produces 83PS and 114Nm. With the Turbo engine, you are looking at a bump of 17PS and a solid 58Nm. However, apart from the engine and the subtle cosmetic changes, all other mechanicals remain the same. We feel Hyundai should’ve used this opportunity to create a more driver-focussed variant along the lines of the Tata JTP twins.
