January 10, 2017 – Hyundai Grand i10, the popular hatchback from the South Korean carmaker, is all set to receive its first facelift in February 2017. A latest Teambhp report claims that the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 facelift will be christened as the Grand i10 Prime in India. However, the company hasn’t made any official statement on the same. Hyundai, usually, uses the ‘Prime’ suffix for its international facelift models.
Previewed at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 facelift (Hyundai Grand i10 Prime) has already been revealed via official pictures. Launched in 2013, the Hyundai Grand i10 has been one of the best-selling hatchbacks in the country. This small car is the direct rival to the country’s best-selling B-segment hatchback – the Maruti Swift. Ever since its launch, the Grand i10 received an excellent response from buyers, and managed to achieve a monthly sales over 8,000 units. The current model is already 3 year old, and is set to receive a major makeover.

Hyundai will offer the European-spec Grand i10 facelift with the same 1.0-litre and the 1.25-litre petrol engine options. Transmissions, too, will remain unchanged – 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic. Similar to the European-spec version, the India-bound model might continue to come with the current engine lineup – a 1.2-litre four-cylinder VTVT petrol and a 1.1-litre U2 CRDi diesel. However, reports suggest that Hyundai might offer the hatchback with a more powerful diesel motor. The vehicle could get a 1.2-litre TCI diesel unit, which will be more powerful and fuel efficient than existing 1.1L U2 CRDi diesel unit.
Despite having the same powertrains, the new Grand i10 facelift could be more fuel efficient than the current one. The petrol version of the hatchback might return around 19kmpl, while the diesel version will give a mileage around 24kmpl.
For 2017, the new Hyundai Grand i10 receives minor design and styling upgrades. Up front of the car has been revised with a new hexagonal grille integrated with round LED daytime running lights, slightly revised bumper with round reflectors and Elantra-inspired boomerang-shaped fog lamp. While the side profile is accentuated by updated side mouldings and a new pair of 14-inch alloy wheels, the rear design remains unchanged. Though, the hatchback gets the new rear bumper with round reflectors.
The hatchback’s 2017 model greets you with a new Red & Black interior with updated fabric seat upholstery and new trim colours. Though, the dashboard design remains unchanged. In terms of features, the hatchback comes loaded with a 7-inch touchscreen display with navigation, automatic climate control, Apple Carplay and Android Auto, lane departure warning and front collision warning.
