Hyundai Grand i10 Overview
It is facelift season in the car industry. The intense competition across segments has finally led to brands being pushed to the point where model year refreshment is becoming inevitable. There are a number of models that are also going through the middle of their generation cycle, which then means that they are not dated in terms of design and appeal. But, to stay in the fray these cars need to be called attention to and their perceived value may need a boost.
The Hyundai Grand i10 is just at that spot in its lifecycle. It is still an attractive small car that offers features above segment-average and is delightful to drive on city roads and the highway. But new competition (read Suzuki Ignis) is pushing the Grand i10 down the line on the list of probables being drawn up by buyers in the segment.Hyundai Motor India’s response is the refreshed 2017 Grand i10. A more redefined exterior styling, a couple of new high-tech features, and a slightly improved performance and fuel efficiency are the key highlights.

It also delivers an improved fuel efficiency of 19.77 kmpl for the manual transmission and 17.49 kmpl for the four-speed automatic. The diesel engine has now grown in displacement size and is now the 1.2L U2 engine. It is more powerful and generates 75PS of power at 4,000rpm with 19.4KgM of torque and yet also delivers an improved mileage of 24.95 kmpl.
