Now i10 lovers have something to rejoice. The Grand i10 facelift is coming to Indian Markets in the first half of 2017.
Since its arrival in 2014, Hyundai Grand i10 has been doing pretty well in Indian markets. With this car, Hyundai entered a new segment in Indian car market.
After its release, this is the first time that grand i10 is getting a facelift. With this facelift, the automaker is expected to increase its volume. As the name suggests it’s a minor face lift and not a design change so – the car gets some minor changes done, overall the dimension of the car remains the same.
The facelift version of Grand i10 comes with lot of upgrades. Up front – you get a hexagonal grille similar to the elite i20. The headlights come with DRL’s (Day Time Running Lights) and front bumper is completely new – with fog lights being integrated and alloys get new 14” design.
Similarly, the rear bumper has been re-designed; expect the car to come with rear fog lights rather than reflectors as in the current version.
The interior of the car also gets some changes – expect the top of the line variant to come with touch screen and sat nav being updated.
Safety aspect has also been given a look at – now the car should get airbag + ABS as standard across the range.
The Diesel engine should see a slight upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2L – to increase the torque which has been low on the earlier diesel engine.
The above changes does give Grand i10 more value and should help Hyundai keep on increasing its numbers.
