With several segment first features, subtle cosmetic changes and a new diesel engine, the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 has surpassed its predecessor. First introduced in 2013, Hyundai Grand i10 sits between i10 and Elite i20 in the carmaker’s line-up. The hatchback won many accolades for its looks and performance post launch and is identified as one of the most popular cars in its segment. While it continued its ecstatic spell, Hyundai decided to add new elements to Grand i10 in a bid to keep competition at bay.
Cosmetically, most of the changes are made to the front profile while it looks largely same from side and rear. The interior layout has been retained from the pre-facelift model, but Hyundai has layered it with some segment first features including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Mirror Link Compatibility and Voice recognition system to name a few. While the aforementioned features give it a cusp over rivals, the hatchback also packs rear parking camera, LED DRLs, new diamond cut wheels and rear AC vents.
However, the most critical change made to Grand i10 facelift is the new 1.2-litre oil burner that replaces the previous 1.1-litre U2 diesel unit. Check Out – Picture Gallery – New Hyundai Grand i10 Facelift
