We have reported earlier that the all-new Hyundai Grand i10 Nios hatchback will receive a performance-oriented 1.0L turbocharged petrol engine. It’s the same powertrain that does duty in the Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV and the newly-launched Hyundai Aura compact sedan. The turbo engine returns a claimed power of 118bhp and 172Nm of torque.
According to a latest media report, the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios turbo petrol variant will be launched by March, 2020. The new gasoline motor is likely to be offered only on the top-spec Sportz dual-tone trim with a manual gearbox.
Similar to the newly-launched Aura sedan, the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios turbo petrol is likely to come with black interior with red inserts giving it sportier appeal. Compared to the regular Sportz dual-tone variant that costs Rs 6.68 lakh, the turbocharged model will be around Rs 80,000 more expensive. Read – Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Will Soon Get CNG Variant
