Hyundai has launched the Grand i10 Nios in India, with prices ranging from Rs 4.99 lakhs to Rs 7.99 lakhs (ex-showroom, across India, introductory). The Grand i10 Nios is positioned between the standard Grand i10 and the Xcent in the company’s product range. Let’s have a look at how the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios fares against its rivals.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift is one of the most significant rivals for the Grand i10 Nios. The segment leader underwent a generation change in 2017 and offers an array of feature-loaded variants to choose from. Compared to the top-end diesel trim of the Grand i10 Nios, the top-end diesel trim of the Swift features an AMT unit, projector headlamps and LED tail lights. The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, on the other hand; is offered with a dual-tone paintjob as well as a segment-first variable warranty scheme that helps it stand apart.
The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and the Ford Figo are equipped with similar levels of features such as the height-adjustable driver seat, automatic climate control, touchscreen infotainment system and steering wheel-mounted controls. While the Grand i10 Nios is available with a dual-tone variant that comes with black interiors and a colour pack, the hatchback from the blue oval is offered in the Figo Blu trim with blue inserts across the vehicle as well as blacked-out interiors with contrast blue stitching.
The upcoming Renault Triber will be positioned against the likes of the Swift and the Grand i10 Nios. The model will be a sub 4-metre, 7 seater vehicle unlike the Grand i10 Nios, which can seat 5 individuals. Renault will also offer numerous seating configurations in the Triber, thus increasing its practicality. The Grand i10 Nios, on the other hand, will match the model in terms of features such as a large touchscreen infotainment system, projector headlamps and rear AC vents. This car also excels in the engine specifications department as it is equipped with a 1.2-litre petrol unit as opposed to the 1.0-litre petrol motor on the Triber.
