Hyundai doesn’t sell sporty N Line or high-performance N performance models to India, but there’s always an option to 'slam', 'mod', or 'kit-up' privately. Delhi-based Smoke’em Customs has served a customer a modified Grand i10 and named it ‘Typhoon’.
The modified Hyundai Grand i10 sports visual changes all around, and it puts on the Smoke’em Custom GTR body kit. The front-end is bestowed with an angry-look having lots of sharp cuts, a compact upper grille, large lower air intake, side air inlets and hood scoops. A small detail worth mentioning is the addition of sparkling LED DRLs beside the side air inlets.
On the sides, the custom wheel arches house 16-inch 7.5J Lenso alloy wheels painted red to match the red exterior highlights. Changes at the rear include smoked tail lamps and Smoke'em Customs performance exhaust with dual HKS endcan. There’s plenty of decals all around.
Mechanical changes other than the exhaust system include ECU tweaks, BMC cold air intake with turbo fan and NKG laser iridium spark plugs. The Typhoon’s 1.2-litre Kappa four-cylinder petrol engine could make about 10 hp more than in the stock form (81.86 hp). Smoke’em Customs has lowered the springs for a sportier stance and slightly more spirited driving.
Inside, the modified Hyundai Grand i10 gets Sparco gear knob, leather steering wheel, custom 7D mats, custom tan leather seat covers, Android-based 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Polk audio components.
Smoke’em Customs took 40 days to modify the Hyundai Grand i10. Totalling approximately INR 2.5 lakh (and the donor car), the Typhoon is only for the free-spending.
