Hyundai has a number of promising products to woo the audience at the Auto Expo 2020. A new report says that in addition to the 2020 Creta and facelifted Verna, there will also be a Grand i10 Nios 1.0L T-GDI, possibly the Grand i10 N Line we had talked about in a recent story.

Hyundai took wraps off the first-ever i10 N Line in Europe last year. While the 120 PS Grand i10 N Line isn't slated for the Indian market, a sporty Grand i10 Nios with a 100 PS version of its engine could be coming to Auto Expo 2020.

While the Euro-spec Hyundai i10 N Line uses the 120 PS/172 Nm 1.0L T-GDI petrol engine, the Indian-spec car will use a smaller version of this engine which churns out 100 PS at 6,000 rpm and 17.5 kg.m (171.62 Nm) of torque at 1,500-4,000 rpm. Also, expect 5-speed manual transmission with optimised gear ratios to be standard with it. The company is already manufacturing the turbocharged three-cylinder motor in India now and hopes to ramp up the volumes. The 120 PS/172 Nm version, may be offered in the next-gen Hyundai i20. The sportier variant of the Grand i10 could use a stiffer suspension setup as well.

The Euro-spec Hyundai i10 N Line sports remastered bumper and grille design on the same design lines as the Hyundai i30N, exclusive LED DRLs and 16-inch alloy wheels, N Line emblem, i10 sign in red font and a faux skid plate and diffuser for its more. On the inside, it features all-black interiors with N-branded steering wheel and gearshift lever, and sporty-looking red stitching on the unique seat upholstery which further complements its overall sporty appeal.
