First unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 facelift has finally gone on sale in India priced from ₹ 4.58 lakh to ₹ 7.32 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Equipped with a host of cosmetic updates and several new features, the updated Grand i10 now also comes with an all-new 1.2 litre diesel engine that offers better torque and power delivery compared to the older model. Now we have already driven the car and also shared the 10 things you need to know about the new hatchback.
Hyundai Grand i10 Facelift Review:
As already mentioned, the new 1.2 litre motor replaces the current 1.1 litre motor on the model that was always cited as a little underpowered when compared to the 1.3 litre diesel motor that the Maruti Suzuki Swift gets or the 1.5-litre engine powering the Ford Figo. With the Ignis also sporting the 1.3 litre diesel and posing as close competition, the bigger motor gives the Grand i10 the boost it needed. Petrol power, on the other hand, remains unchanged with the tried and tested 1.2 litre motor making its way under the hood.
Other upgrades on the Hyundai Grand i10 facelift include a revised front with a newer grille, LED daytime running lights and even a revised cabin with a new 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with voice and climate control.
While there are many new features in the car, Hyundai has managed to undercut the price of the new one by quite a margin compared to the old one and that's what will make it competitive.
