It’s doing just that! Hyundai has unveiled the Grand i10 facelift for Europe. And the India-spec model will get a similar treatment. This facelift will try to ensure the Grand i10 doesn’t suffer from the launch of new Swift. The new Hyundai Grand i10 2017 launch will happen early next year, before the new Swift arrives.

Hyundai launched the Grand i10 Special Edition in May this year. This limited edition Grand i10 got new body decals, red-and-black interior and a 6.2-inch AVN system. The upcoming 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 facelift could get many more new features along with refreshed looks
New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 India Launch Date
|Launch Date||Q1 2017|
Hyundai had earlier planned to launch the Grand i10 facelift by 2016-end. However, some internal factors have pushed the launch to Q1, 2017. We’re sure that the Grand i10 2017 will be launched before the 2017 Swift. This should give a significant advantage to the new Grand i10 2017. Recently, camouflaged test mules of the Grand i10 facelift were photographed. This confirms that a facelift is definitely on its way. Hyundai Grand i10 facelift will be similar to the Euro-spec 2017 i10 seen in pictures here. The 2017 i10 for Europe made its debut at the 2016 Paris Auto Show.
Hyundai now seems to have a long list of new car launches in the pipeline. These include the new Tucson SUV, 2017 Verna, a new MPV and the Carlino compact SUV.

The 2017 Grand i10 could come with a highly revised Diesel engine. This Diesel engine will not only return higher mileage but will also have higher refinement levels. The new Hyundai Grand i10 2017’s higher mileage will help it fend off the heat from Tata Tiago.
New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 Exterior
Dimensions of the Grand i10 will remain more or less the same. This means that the facelift will measure 3,765 mm in length, 1,660 mm in width and 1,520 mm. Wheelbase will be same at 2,425 mm.

Its boot capacity will be 256 litres while the fuel tank capacity will be 43 litres. Styling of the new Grand i10 2017 will be inspired from the European i10 that was unveiled recently. It gets a new ‘cascading’ front grille design with round LED DRLs. The new fog lamp enclosures are reminiscent of the Elantra sedan. At the back, the bumper is all-new and gets a thick black strip housing the rear fog lamps.
Test mules that were caught on camera recently had their front and rear end completely camouflaged. This means it will get a new sharper front fascia and a much different rear-end. It will boast a new ‘cascading’ style hexagonal front grille and round LED Daytime Running Lamps. It will also have a new front grille pattern. In side profile, it will get new rub strips and new design alloy wheels.
New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 Interior
We have always loved the Grand i10 for its roomy cabin. The 2017 Grand i10 too will offer similar space. The stylish dashboard is will remain identical to the current car’s. However, the interior could get new colour and trims. It is also likely to get some more features. Hyundai cars have always been feature-rich. Same is the case with the Grand i10. However, the 2017 Grand i10 facelift could take the game to another level with the addition of bits like auto aircon and touchscreen AVN.
New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 Engines and Transmissions
The engines will be carried over from the current model. Currently, the Grand i10 is available with a 1.2-litre Petrol and the 1.1-litre Diesel engine. Hyundai is said to be working on some major revisions for this low capacity Diesel engine. Also, even the Petrol model could get an ECU re-map for better fuel mileage. Currently, the Petrol engine churns out 81 BHP while the Diesel engine outputs 70 BHP. These figures could see a slight improvement for 2017 Grand i10 model.
Transmission options are likely to remain completely unchanged. The Petrol model will continue to come with a 5-speed Manual and 4-Speed Automatic transmissions. The Diesel model gets a 5-speed Manual transmission. There are rumours that the Diesel model too could get the automatic gearbox. However, we are yet to get any concrete information on this. In all chances, the Diesel model will NOT get an automatic transmission.
