The new feature spied on the upcoming Hyundai Grand i10 may or may not come to India. The car was spotted in South Korea.
Hyundai will launch the 2020 Grand i10 on August 21 and the upcoming hatchback does will feature technologically advanced system and will host a lot of convenience features. Several spy shots of the upcoming Grand i10 have been surfacing on the internet and this time we know how the front fascia of the car looks.
The 2020 Hyundai Grand i10 gets projector headlamp cluster and LED foglights, the latter being positioned on the upper corners of the radiator grille. We can also see the availability of integrated LED DRLs with the new-gen Grand i10. The cascading grille is now bigger and gets vertical black inserts on the outer ends of the bumper.
Talking about the design, the silhouette of the car remains more or less the same. The cosmetic upgrades continue with the front and rear bumper revisions, the latter to likely get a plastic cladding. Ths die profile will receive new age diamond-cut alloy wheels and a slight increase in height is also expected.
As the new Hyundai Grand i10 shares the same platform as the Venue, we expect the inside of the car will carry the BlueLink connected car technology. It offers Remote Start/Stop, Voice Control, Real-time navigation and much more.
The dashboard will see a refreshed design and so will the steering wheel. We also expect a large 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Connectivity features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth are likely to be followed in the upcoming hatchback.
Talking about the powertrain, it will continue to get the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 1.2L turbocharged diesel engine. Transmission option includes 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. To make the new grand i10 more affordable, the company is likely to ditch the torque-converter unit for the 5-speed automated manual transmission. We can expect the engine offered onboard to be BS-VI compliant.
Once launched, the Hyundai Grand i10 will continue to compete with the popular Maruti Suzuki Swift, Ford Figo and Tata Tiago. The price range will be upwards from the current generation because of the fact of new BS6 compliant engines and the revised styling with new features onboard.
