Four years on from the unveiling of the current second-generation Hyundai Grand i10, it’s now time for a followup – the facelifted version of the city car gains new looks, along with new tech and equipments.
As you can tell, the changes to the exterior styling are pretty subtle, beginning with a redesigned front grille, circular LED DRLs placed at the corner of the grille, and new boomerang-shaped foglamp enclosures inspired by the Hyundai Elantra. The side profile and silhouette of the car remain identical to that of the current model, except the new 14-inch alloy wheels and black stickers on the C-pillars.
At the rear, the Grand i10 facelift is virtually unchanged from before, unless you notice an all-new bumper with a prominent black inlay and twin circular fog lights.
Moving inside, it retains familiar layout, with a new shade of black and red treatment. New items that are introduced as part of the facelift include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This system supports navigation, and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This unit is likely to be an upgraded version of the one available in the Creta sold in the Indian market.
For power, the Europe-spec Grand i10 facelift will be offered with the 1.0-litre and 1.25-litre petrol engines which are available either with a 5-speed MT or a 4-speed AT. Moving away from the European market, the India-spec will retain the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.1-litre diesel engines from the current model. The company has already started testing the facelifted Grand i10 in India, which could be similar to the model above, and is expected to launch in the country in early-2017.
