Hyundai i10 Grand Highlights & Static Analysis - Features, Specs, Price Comparison

Hyundai launched the new Grand-i10 with some exciting features and updates and more importantly a new 2nd generation CRDi diesel engine.

Highlights of the new i10 includes premium interiors and bit more space in the inside as compared to the previous i10. The top-end variant comes with 14" alloy wheels, rear ac-vents, start-stop push button, steering mounted controls, dual airbags, ABS and reverse parking assist system.

No CNG/LPG variant & Automatic Variant available in Grand i10

The i10 Grand is available in 8 variants - 4 petrol and 4 diesel :
  • Era (entry-level)
  • Magna
  • Sportz
  • Asta (top-end)
Two options are available in terms of engines :
  • 1.2L Kappa Dual VTVT Petrol
  • 1.1L 2nd Gen U2 CRDi Diesel 

Pricing :

Obviously the Grand i10 is costlier than the regular i10, but surprisingly it costs only 20grands more vis-a-vis the same variant of previous i10

So what you get is a bigger and more powerful i10 with lot more features and style for a reasonable hike in price which is certainly not a bad deal.
