Hyundai India confirms that there are no plans to introduce a Grand i10 diesel AT variant.

A few days ago, Hyundai introduced the Grand i10 petrol AT, borrowing the powertrain from the older i10, priced at 5.95 lakh rupees (ex-showroom Delhi). The Grand i10’s 1.2-liter Kappa engine is matched to a 4-speed AT, and produces 85 bhp and 11.6 kgm of torque. It was launched in Asta and Sportz variants.

Hyundai’s cheapest diesel AT is the Hyundai Verna which retails at 10.34 lakhs in Delhi showrooms.

    I am disappointed. Was looking forward to buy this vehicle next month. Hopefully Hyundai will come up with AT diesel i10 soon.

    Oh, I had a hunch on this. Doing a small capacity diesel engine with automatic transmission is a big difficulty in terms of production. And wouldn’t match the sales number given its pricing.

      Hi Vikram,

      what was your estimation for the additional price of automatic gearbox over the manual for the diesel i10?

      what was your volume estimation fir the diesel AT? do you see it selling more than the petrol AT?
