The made-in-India Hyundai Grand i10 was launched in Indonesia yesterday. The Indonesia-spec hatchback, for the most part, looks the same as the Indian version and is shipped from the Chennai plant.

Indonesians will get to drive only a petrol engine, not the 1.2-litre Kappa we have, but a slightly bigger avatar of the same motor which displaces 1,248cc. The output of the engine is marginally higher at 87 PS and 12.2 kgm of torque against the India-spec engine’s 83 PS and 11.6 kgm of torque. The motor is mated either to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The car also runs on a slightly bigger 1.25L Kappa engine.

In terms of equipment, the high-end GLS variant of the Indonesian Grand i10 is more feature rich than the Indian model. It gets double-DIN touchscreen audio system with Bluetooth, DVD and MP3 compatibility alongside navigation and internet support that is not available in India.

Interestingly, the export-spec Grand i10 comes with LED daytime running lights enclosed in the foglamp housings while the Indian version makes do without it.
