Nios Effect: The Hyundai Grand i10 Now Only Available In Petrol Manual And CNG Variants


Hyundai India does away with diesel and automatic variants for the hatchback, months after the updated Grand i10 Nios was launched

  • The Grand i10 is now priced from Rs 5.79 lakh to Rs 6.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
  • It can only be had with the 1.2-litre petrol or CNG powertrain. Four diesel variants axed.
  • The hatch is now limited to two trim levels: Magna and Sportz.
  • Hyundai has also reduced the number of colour options to four.

Hyundai Motor India has silently rejigged the variant list of the Grand i10. It has axed the base-spec Era and top-spec Asta variant of the hatchback while also discontinuing the petrol-automatic as well as the 1.2-litre diesel powertrains. Now, the Grand i10 can only be had with either the petrol or CNG variants with a 5-speed manual gearbox. It is available in Magna and Sportz trim levels, with the CNG powertrain being limited to the lower-spec model. We had earlier reported that Hyundai will discontinue select variants of the Grand i10 to make more room for the Grand i10 Nios. This could also spell the discontinuation of the Grand i10 in the near future. Meanwhile, the Grand i10-based Xcent is also due for an update with its new compact sedan successor named the Aura, which will be based on the Grand i10 Nios. Have a look at the detailed price list of the revised Grand i10 and see how it fares against the Grand i10 Nios below:
