Reported to launch next month.
Motor Octane says that the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 (facelift) will be called the Hyundai Grand i10 Prime. It is said to launch next month; thus being Hyundai’s first product launch for the new year. Previously, HMIL used the ‘Prime’ branding on an iteration of the Hyundai Getz.
The Hyundai Grand i10 Prime is the first major facelift for one of Hyundai’s best-selling products since it launched in 2013. Some of the design changes will trickle in from the 2017 Hyundai i10 (facelift), which made its world debut in Paris last year. It features a large hexagonal grille flanked by new fog lamps, LED DRLs, and a redesigned rear bumper with circular reflectors.
Inside, Hyundai could introduce a touchscreen infotainment system and automatic climate control in the top-end Asta(O) grade. Also expected are cabin trim and seat upholstery updates, but this is purely our speculation.
As for engine lineup, the Hyundai Grand i10 Prime will retain the current model’s list, which has a 1.2L four-cylinder VTVT petrol and 1.1L three-cylinder U2 CRDi diesel engine. A 5-speed manual is equipped in both variants, while a 4-speed automatic is exclusive to the 1.2 petrol variant.
