Hyundai Grand i10 heading to the Philippines
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Will be manufactured and exported from India, alongside the Creta SUV.
In Hyundai’s invite for their press conference at the 2017 Manila International Auto Show, the company has teased the new Hyundai Grand i10, which will be unveiled alongside the Hyundai Creta SUV.
Both models will be manufactured and exported from India, so the Grand i10’s design will be identical to the model sold in India, rather than the i10 in Europe. It gets Hyundai’s new Cascading hexagonal, redesigned fog lamps with LED DRL strips (in top-end models), and air curtains similar to the Hyundai Elantra, while the rear-end has a dual-tone bumper with round reflectors.
The model that will be sold in the Philippines will have a dual tone red and black interior, unlike the dual tone beige and black of the Indian-spec car. Top grades will get a new 7-inch touchscreen system with reverse parking camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as automatic climate control system.
For the Philippine market, the new Grand i10 will only be available with the 1.2L four-cylinder Kappa engine with 83 PS and 11.6 kg.m of peak torque. It can be had with a 5-speed manual gearbox or 4-speed automatic unit.
