Hyundai India reveals the Grand i10; Gets a 1.1-liter 3-cylinder diesel engine

Posted on: Aug 7, 2013 - 8:59am IST

Hyundai India has finally revealed the Hyundai Grand i10. This is the car that has been spied testing for close to a year now on our Indian roads (the European 2014 i10 will be detailed in another post). After having referred to it by the codename, BA, we finally get to know the actual name and see how the car would look like. And this is it!

The Grand i10 gets Hyundai’s new Fluidic styling and details such as the headlights remind you of the Hyundai Santa Fe. As we have mentioned before, Hyundai has given the Grand i10 a set of roof rails. At this point, Hyundai has not released any interior images of the Grand i10, so all we can see are the exteriors.

The Grand i10 will be positioned in between the regular Hyundai i10 and i20 when it goes on sale (expected very soon). Speaking about the rivals, Hyundai will be looking at the Maruti Swift and Ford Figo mainly.

Powering the Grand i10 will be a petrol and a diesel engine. The petrol will be the familiar 1.2-liter Kappa2 engine that we already see on the i10 and the i20. The talking point is the 1.1-liter three cylinder diesel engine. This is a three cylinder version of the 1.4-liter CRDi on the i20. Though Hyundai has not released the specifications of this engine, we expect a power output of about 70-75bhp.

    This will be defintely placed between i10 and i20. The Santro will be crapped and the current i10 will take the place of Santro.

  4. Looks good! Will there be another new generation i10 coming into the market anytime soon?

    As the price difference between the base versions of both i10 and i20 is not more than Rs. 1 lakh, will there be a market for a product priced in the middle?

    Very disappointed with the design, looks pretty ordinary to me.

    With all the pre release hype around the new i10, I was expecting Hyundai to raise the game to a different level. Sadly though, this is plain boring.

    It would interesting to find out more on the new Diesel mill though.

    The looks is great ….The quality of Hyundai cars are improving drastically Y-T-Y. Well done Hyundai. I didn’t like i10, only because of rear space. If this new car has lil bit more rear seat space and luggage space, I am sure this would make some damage in Swift / Figo sales figures .. Let us see..

    Awesome looks and more so, “freshness” written all over it. While the design is an improvisation of an already stunningly designed i10, it sure deserves the “Grand” prefix. While Hyundai has always packed its products with the best of features, one can expect a slight ‘premium’ over its rivals. And why not, if it deserves !!!

    A 5 Star rating for the looks…..and hope its nearest and longest rival MS, gets inspired while designing new cars 🙂
