Regular Indian Autos Blog readers may remember how we broke the scoop months ago. We revealed that the Euro-spec i10 would be different from the Indian i10. We also told you that the new i10 for India would have a different name (now called the Grand i10) and would not replace the existing i10, while the Euro model would be an i10 successor without sporting a new name.

As you can see, the Euro-spec i10 looks similar to the Grand i10 but there are a lot of changes. At the front, it gets a set of daytime running lights while the side profile reveals a different rear door design and window line. The Euro i10 does without the roof rails as well. At the rear, the Euro-i10 looks identical to the Grand i10 save for the detailing around the rear windscreen.

The 2014 i10 for Europe is longer than the current i10 by 80mm, wider by 65mm and lower by 50mm. The wheelbase sees an extension of 5mm. The Grand i10 for India is even larger than the 2014 Euro i10, though the official specifications aren’t out yet.

For Europe, Hyundai will use the 1.0-liter 3-cylinder petrol and the 1.2-liter Kappa2 petrol. A diesel engine hasn’t been confirmed yet. The 2014 Euro i10 will make its global premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

    the grand i10 isa tall boy design & european model is a hatchback
    ,hyundai can produce a sedan & crossi10 like crosspolo on european model & an urban suv had been spied so many times

    .these are the four models hyundai is going to launch & all these models are based on old i20 platfoam, it means better performance & value for money with loads of feauters & with indian made diesel engine, the fluidic design theorey it got everything that requires to win in indian market

    This is one of the best cars from Hyundai Family.Particularly a segment between i10 and i20 is a clever move….for those who have been waiting for i10 diesel…this car is a perfect choice.But a bit disappointed with the name i10 Grand seems like all Korean makers started using Grand (Like Samsung)…What ever…early waiting for this car !!!

    A disappointing copy of the Renault Clio, the Hyundai designers are going back to their roots. Looks horrible I expected more. http://www.renault.co.za/index.html

    Euro model has all little tweaks that makes the Grand i10 look upmarket.
    1: I personally didn’t like the name Grand for this tiny car. i15 would have been a better pick.
    2. Mesh on the front of euro model looks mature than plain lines on the Grand.
    3. Though the design is great but it looks too pale near the rear door window where euro model excels.

    I am really disappointed & feel cheated by Hyundai’s dual policy.

      1) i15 sounds better than ‘Grand i10’ May be HYUNDAI is following SAMSUNG Closely (GALAXY GRAND). Hahaha. These Koreans are following the same nomenclature.Hahaha

      2) The mesh looks cool rather than the plain lines on the Front Bumper

      3) The rear door window & rear windscreen looks cool for the Euro i10, compared to the Indian model.

    Very very beautiful car which we hope it will come with the excellent 1.1 Crdi in The Netherlands

  7. neha says:

    Euro car looks better in design especially the rear cross window look seems classy, wonder why Indian car does not have that !

  8. Anand says:

    Yes, it looks different … But my personal view is day-light is not mandate in India and it is unnecessary. And Rear door and glasses are different in Euro one. Other than that I don’t think there will be any difference in Length / width of these cars. Let us see…
