Buoyed by the great response for Grand i10 hatchback and Xcent compact sedan, India’s second largest car manufacturer Hyundai is now aiming to export this hatchback to other nations. The left-hand drive version of the Grand i10 has been spotted during its test rounds in Chennai.
The front fascia of the spotted model is covered, which hints that the exported model features a different fascia than the Indian model. It seems like the company is giving final touches to the hatchback to match the international standards. Hyundai India is the country’s largest car exporter and is currently exporting its vehicles to around 110 countries across Europe, Africa, Middle East, Latin America and Asia. This successful product to be exported from India will only help the company to continue its dominance in the export market. Moreover, Hyundai is also planning to export the made-in-India Grand i10 to Argentina and South Africa. So, we expect that this model could be launched there as well.
New-gen Hyundai i10 is also manufactured at the company’s Turkey manufacturing unit, which exports this product to European nations. We believe that the India-made product will also be exported to European markets. The European spec model is powered by a 1.1-litre petrol engine, mated to a five-speed manual transmission, which produces 69PS of top power.
