The Grand i10 is available in petrol and diesel variants. An automatic transmission variant however is not in the current mix, which if launched, would improve numbers.

    Hyundai is getting close to Maruti in terms of brand reputation in India. I don’t see any other reason for an ordinary looking hatchback to clock such good numbers.

    While Hyundai has impressed with the first generation i10, i20 and the Verna…the new Grand 1i0 was a disappointment. Considering its a all new car, the design comes off as just a mix and match …and looks pretty ordinary and boring. May be a please all approach..

      Dear Deepak,

      Looking at the recent auto market trends, your statement about the GRAND i10 is absolutely wrong. Probably within next couple of months duration, the roads will be flooded with this car.

      With Regards,
