The facelift comes nearly three years after the Hyundai Grand i10 was launched in India. The changes to the exterior will also be shared with its sedan sibling – the Hyundai Xcent – in the near future. A slightly revised grille and bumpers are expected to take shape on the Grand i10 facelift. The test mule is riding on new alloy rims with a diamond-cut finish.

Changes to the inside could also be limited to minor cosmetic and trim updates. With the rising preference for a touchscreen system in entry-level hatchbacks, Hyundai could offer one as an option in the range-topping grade.

As for mechanical updates, the facelifted Hyundai Grand i10 is likely to carryover the existing 1.2L four-cylinder petrol and 1.1L three-cylinder diesel engines from the current model. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual for both variants, while a 4-speed automatic is exclusive to the 1.2 petrol.
