Spied inside and out – Hyundai Grand i10 diesel to achieve 24kmpl?
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
The Hyundai Grand i10 is awaiting its launch which has been scheduled for September 3rd. Meanwhile, here is another set of spy images showing the uncamouflaged exteriors and interiors of Hyundai’s Swift competitor.
Powering the Grand i10 is the 1.2-liter Kappa2 petrol engine and a 1.1-liter 3-cylinder U2 diesel engine. It seems that the petrol motor would output 82bhp at 6,000rpm and 114Nm of torque at 4,000rpm (if these figures are true, Hyundai seems to have tuned the engine a bit maybe to account for the heavier weighing Grand i10 over the current i10).
The petrol engine will be available with a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. While the manual’s fuel efficiency is quoted at 18.9km/l, the automatic should be good for 16km/l at least.
The 1.1-diesel is believed to output 70.7bhp at 4,000rpm and 156Nm of torque between 1,500rpm and 2,750rpm. Hyundai could be targeting a fuel efficiency of 24km/l for the Grand i10 diesel.
We learn that the interiors of the Grand i10 would be offered in a dual-tone black and beige color combination. The music system that you see in the center console is capable of playing almost every possible format and supports Bluetooth as well. Controls for the stereo and the Bluetooth are placed on the steering wheel. Apart from this, it is also reported that an inbuilt storage of 1GB is on offer.
