Could go on sale during this festive season.
Hyundai of Europe had unveiled a major facelift for the Hyundai i10 a week back. Changes that were seen are likely to be shared with the India-spec Grand i10, which has been integrated into a rendering by IAB’s Shoeb R Kalania.
The front fascia receives a significant facelift, featuring a redesigned grille with a new mesh pattern in one portion, LED DRLs integrated into the headlamp and boomerang-shaped foglamp enclosures inspired by the Hyundai Elantra. The black plastic side cladding has been slightly redesigned, while top-end models get new 14-inch alloy rims with a diamond-cut finish.
Unlike the exterior, changes inside are expected to be minimal. The top-end Grand i10 could be offered with a touchscreen display as well as Apple Carplay and Android Auto support.
The facelifted Grand i10 is likely to retain the 1.2L four-cylinder petrol and 1.1L three-cylinder diesel engines. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual for both variants, while a 4-speed automatic is exclusive to the 1.2 petrol.
