The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 has been spied yet again ahead of its expected launch in India in the fourth quarter (October-December).
The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10, like its predecessor, will have a funky styling targeted at young buyers. At the front, the third generation Grand i10 will come with a more expressive cascading grille, new sweptback headlamp and a more stylish bumper which will have hints of the 2019 Hyundai Elantra. Its silhouette seems to be a reflection of the current out-going and there's no major difference in its overall size too. However, enhanced proportions and cleverer packaging could lead to improved cabin space. A more smoothly upswept beltline and a more curvaceous greenhouse do improve the styling on the sides.
The rear-end of the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 has still been mostly hidden under camouflage, but it won't be being farfetched to expect a totally new look, courtesy redesigned tail lamps, bumper and tailgate. Inside, the new third-generation A-segment car will be richer in terms of comfort creatures and advanced in-car technologies. Previous spy shots had shown sleek, horizontal central air vents and a more modern steering wheel similar to that of the Hyundai Kona. A floating-type touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also expected.
The next-gen Hyundai Grand i10 will sit on an updated version of the outgoing model's platform. It will employ a BS-VI version of the 83 PS 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine. Whether the 75 PS 1.2-litre U2 CRDi diesel engine will be made available or not remains to be seen. BS-VI upgrades are proving to be too costly for A-segment models in general. Transmission choices will include a 5-speed manual unit and a 5-speed automated manual unit. The latter will arrive as a replacement for the aged 4-speed torque converter.
