Hyundai has been testing the new-gen Grand i10 for a while now with the test mule being sighted all over the country. Small wonder then that it was spotted once again, thereby indicating on its possible launch sometime soon. It is believed that the new model will be based on an all-new platform that is expected to be lighter, flexible, safer and wider than its predecessor.
Mechanically, the new Hyundai Grand i10 is expected to be powered by the existing 1.2-litre petrol and diesel engine options. However, the new model will get BS-VI compliant engines. As seen in other Hyundai cars, there have been reports of a downsized three-cylinder petrol engine likely to be introduced in the new Grand i10 as well.
As for the interior, the new Grand i10 is expected to get slimmer seats as compared to the current version, which in turn, makes the interior appear more spacious than the current generation model. The new seat layout will be accommodating and offer adjustable headrest. The redesigned centre console will offer a decent amount of storage space for your cellphone, wallet and other odds and ends. The top spec version is likely to get climate control and multiple airbags, while the lower variants will get dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, speed and seatbelt alert as standard.
In terms of pricing, the new-gen Hyundai Grand i10 is expected to be priced marginally higher than the outgoing model.
