Hyundai Grand i10 was launched in September-2013 and ever since, it has received more than expected attention from buyers resulting in long waiting periods. The company has bagged tremendous interest from the Indian audience getting 10,000 bookings within 20 days of being launched. At the time of launch, Hyundai didn’t introduce automatic variants for the Grand i10 but promised to launch it before the end-2013.
Now BS Motoring reports that the Hyundai India is all-set to launch the automatic variants of the Grand i10 in both diesel and petrol avatars next-month. The Korean automaker will be releasing the 4-speed automatic transmission with the diesel as well as petrol models, this is the same 4-speed automatic transmission, which we have earlier seen on Hyundai models like i10, i20 and Verna.
We expect that this option is likely to be available only on the Asta variant and is expected to be priced in the region of Rs. 7.5 to 9.5 lakh. This will make the Grand i10 the most affordable diesel automatic car in the country. Further, BS Motoring reports that the 1.1-litre, 3-cylinder, CRDi, U2 diesel engine would continue producing 69 bhp and 160 nm of, while the 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, Kappa2 petrol engine too will continue producing 80 bhp and 114 Nm of torque.
