Tarun Garg, Director – Sales, Marketing & Service, HMIL told that the 1.0 l Turbo GDi engine in the Sportz variant adheres to the enthusiasts seeking “power packed performance”. The South Korean auto major has further noted that it will be offered in two-tone paint schemes as well.

The contrast red inserts add to the glitter of the new Sportz variant. Just as the interior, the exterior has also been enhanced with exclusive Turbo badge on the tail gate as well as front grille to differentiate itself from the regular model.

The engine complies with BSVI emission standards and it helps in expanding the range of the Grand i10 Nios that was only introduced a few months ago. It will directly compete against performance-based Tata Tiago JTP hot hatchback. The Grand i10 Nios has been performing well in garnering sales over the last months.
