Hyundai i10 LPG Features, Specifications and Variants in India
The i10 LPG is powered by the 1.1 litre iRDE2 engine, it comes with an easy petrol to LPG shift that offers customers a unique combination of reliable performance and unmatched fuel economy. With separate Petrol (35 litre) and LPG (34 litre) tanks, the customers have an option to choose from LPG and petrol modes. The LPG tank in the i10 blue drive has a special ‘Toroidal’ LPG tank that allows intelligent use of space and makes for larger boot space than conventional LPG-fitted models.
The Alternator Management System (AMS) is yet another innovative technology from Hyundai which controls delivery of power to the battery. While decelerating, the power supply to the battery is normal and during acceleration it limits the power – this gives extended battery life and better mileage. The Manual Shift Indicator which is a first-in-class feature available in the i10 helps to achieve maximum fuel efficiency by optimum gear usage.
