Hyundai seems to be working on a version of its top selling i10 hatchback that's got more appeal and even more firepower and will perhaps come very close to giving the market leader cause for concern; coming your way in September
It’s no secret that Hyundai needed to have an upgrade or at best an all new evolution of its best selling i10, which now has had a life span in its present form of close to seven years. Well, what you see before you is on its way to fulfill that very objective and Hyundai is calling it the Grand i10.
As can be seen, the Grand i10 with the help of Hyundai’s European Design Center in Germany has once again done wonders with its fluidic design theme, which even today looks fresh, a step ahead but in a lower segment. The i10 Grand would offer buyers a large cabin done up in a plush two tone beige-black combination that lends a Premier feel to the interiors. Read : Hyundai i10 Grand complete feature
When it comes to traction effort, the Grand i10 is offered with a choice of two engines. The first being the tried and tested 1.2 litre KAPPA petrol unit and the second is the brand new state-of-the-art 1.1 U2 CRDI diesel that is making its Indian debut.
Hyundai has also packed this car with a number of goodies that include a smart key, a/c vent for rear passengers (which is an industry first feature in this category of car, and an India exclusive feature on the BA, IA Grand i10), push button start/stop, 2DIN mp3 audio with 1 GB internal memory, steering mounted audio controls, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, Aux-in and USB connectivity, glove box cooling, and electric ORVMs with integrated indicators.
As one of the most awaited small car launches of the year, the Hyundai Grand i10 appears to be a rather practical product for our shores, and the company has made it quite clear that India is an important market as any other, and will get products that are at par or superior to the rest of the world!
