Hyundai Grand i10 Review
Hyundai India has continued with bringing in new products and the Hyundai Grand i10 has been updated as well. After its launch in 2013, the Hyundai Grand i10 turned out to hit the right spot in the Indian car market to become the highest selling Hyundai car in India. It also managed to surpass the Swift for a brief period with its frugal engines and value for money tag. The new Hyundai Grand i10 is a mid-life update.
The 2017 Grand i10 is a facelift and gets a fresh look with the restyled front and rear bumpers. The front grille has been completely redone and looks aggressive. The headlamps have been tweaked slightly and it now gets LED DRLs, though only on the higher trims. You also get thick rub strips on the side doors and the rear bumper gets a thick black applique giving it a cool look. It gets a new diamond cut alloy design as well.
The interior is done in beige and black and looks premium. While the top-spec trims gets a 7-inch touchscreen replete with Apple Car play and Android Auto, the mid-trim Sportz gets a 5 inch screen. The Asta trim gets climate control. The dash has been tweaked but the instrument console remains the same. The grand i10 is decently spacious and gets AC vents for the rear passengers as well. It also gets adjustable headrests in the back on the fully loaded Asta variant. Tinted glasses are standard along with front power windows, power steering and manual air conditioning. In terms of safety, it gets engine immobiliser, central locking and parking sensors. Driver airbag is standard while the higher variants get dual front airbags. ABS is restricted to the top-spec Asta trim only.
The Grand i10 gets the 1.2-litre Kappa engine that develops 81bhp of power and 114Nm and comes from the i20. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual and a four-speed automatic gearbox and drives the front wheels. The 1.2-litre three-cylinder diesel engine continues under the hood with the 74bhp of power and 190Nm of torque. It also comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The petrol engine feels powerful and peppy while the diesel engine needs to be revved to get the juice, but is excellent for city driving especially with the smooth torque curve.
The Hyundai Grand i10 is a B-segment hatchback and competes with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Tata Bolt, Ford Figo, Nissan Micra and the petrol-only Honda Brio. It has the advantage of a robust feature list and affordable and widespread service network.
