The next-generation Hyundai Grand i10 is expected to make its debut sometime during the second half of 2019 and is going to offer more space on the inside.
Hyundai is currently working on a major generation update for the grand i10 compact hatchback. The test mule of the same has been spotted testing in India already with several sighting reported abroad as well. For Hyundai, the Grand i10 is a global product and with this second generation update, it is going to be identical for all markets, unlike its current iteration which differs in measurements.
The new Hyundai Grand i10 is going to use an all-new platform. Though the same is going to keep its exterior dimension identical to the current version, the same is going to offer a slightly longer wheelbase. What this will do is help in increasing space on the inside without actually increasing the overall dimensions of the vehicle.
Other changes will include a completely redesigned front fascia. The headlights, as well as the tail-lights, are going to come with a new design. In addition to this, the front grille is also going to get completely new aesthetics. Furthermore, the front and the rear bumpers along with the alloy wheels are going to get an all-together new design.
Just like the exterior profile of the new Hyundai Grand i10, its interiors are also going to get a considerable design upgrade. The dashboard layout, along with the door panels will feature a new design. The current iteration of this hatchback is already quite feature loaded. Expect the generation update to get a slightly improved kitty. Where the new iteration is especially going to score more will be its safety equipment list.
Right from the base variant onwards, one is going to get safety features such as dual airbags, Anti-lock braking system, Electronic Brake Force Distribution along with rear parking sensors and seat belt warnings for the front passenger as well as the driver.
It is quite early to comment on the engine specifications of the new Hyundai Grand i10. What we can say is that it is likely to come with both petrol as well as diesel engine options. Both these engines are likely to meet BS-VI emission regulations. Transmission options will include a manual gearbox as standard. There will be an automatic gearbox in the line-up as well, preferably an AMT unit.
