Hyundai’s popular hatchback – Grand i10 is ready to enter into its new generation next month. The hatchback’s all-new model is scheduled to go on sale on 20th August, 2019. The 2020 Hyundai Grand i10 will also be showcased at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show that will be held from 12th to 22nd September, 2019. Here’re 5 big changes that will be made to the new-generation Grand i10.
1. New Platform
The 2020 Hyundai Grand i10 will share its platform with the Venue subcompact SUV. The new architecture, that meets the new crash test norms, will make the vehicle lighter and safer than its existing model. The same platform will also be used for the new Kia Picanto and Kia subcompact SUV (QYI).
2. Bigger Dimensions
Hyundai might increase the wheelbase and roof height of the hatchback, while its length will remain unchanged. The current model measures 3765mm in length, 1660mm in width and 1520mm in height with 2425mm of wheelbase. Read – Hyundai Could Launch The Genesis GV70 SUV In India

The 2020 Hyundai Grand i10 will receive some significant design changes including a new cascading grille, sharper headlamps with projector lights, LED DRLs, new ORVMs, a rising beltline, newly-designed alloy wheels, a floating roof and wrap around squarish LED tail lamps. It might also get a new tailgate and revised rear bumper. The hatchback, however, will continue to carry the tall stance.
4. More Features
Compared to the current generation, the 2020 Hyundai Grand i10 will be more feature-loaded.

Major change will come in the form of a new touchscreen infotainment system supporting smartphone connectivity. In terms of safety, the new Grand i10 is likely to get rear parking sensors, speed alert, dual airbags, seatbelt alert and ABS with EBD as standard. Read – Hyundai Nexo SUV India Launch Details Out
