Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Even while Hyundai is prepping for the launch of the Hyundai Grand i10, the hatchback seems to have reached many dealer yards. These pictures were clicked by Indian Autos Blog reader, Mr. Nisheet Jain. The Grand i10 seen here is the nearly top-end ‘Sportz’ variant (Hyundai sells another variant above this called ‘Asta’) and underneath its hood lies Hyundai’s U2 diesel engine.

The U2 diesel is a 1.1-liter 3-cylinder unit (what it actually is, is the 3-cylinder version of the 1.4 CRDi 4-cylinder from the i20) with common rail technology. While Hyundai has not revealed the detailed specifications of the engine, it is believed that it would output 70.7bhp and 156Nm of torque. The diesel will be available only with a 5-speed manual transmission and Hyundai would be targeting a fuel efficiency of 24km/l.

The Grand i10 would also be available with the 1.2-liter Kappa2 petrol (also seen on the current i10 and the i20). The petrol would be offered with a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic transmission. A segment-first feature on the Grand i10 will be seen in the form of rear AC vents, while other features are expected to match the competition taking the form of the Maruti Swift mainly.

Grand i10 will be positioned in between the i10 and the i20.

When the Grand i10 is launched on September 3rd, it would be positioned in between the current i10 and the i20. So expect the pricing to be likewise as well.
