The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will launch in India by Diwali next year, It will lock horns with the Maruti Suzuki Swift and will feature an AMT
The current Hyundai Grand i10 was launched in India in 2013 and has already been through a generation change. No surprise, then, that Hyundai Motor India Ltd has commenced the testing of the all-new 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 in the country. The third generation of the popular Korean hatchback should launch here by Diwali next year. Prices will remain mostly the same.
The 2019 Hyundai Grand 10 will feature company’s latest design language. The spy images already reveal a new cascading grille and sleeker, more angular pair of headlamps. The test mule seems to be a mid-level variant as it doesn’t get alloy wheels or LED lighting fixtures. A steeply raking beltline can also be seen towards the rear.
The interior of the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will see a comprehensive re-design. It will get a new dashboard with a floating-type touchscreen infotainment unit. Like all Hyundai cars, the new Grand i10 will offer a long list of features. In the below image, you can see the next-gen Grand i10 testing with the QXi compact SUV.
Mechanically, the new Grand i10 will be much different from the current car. Underpinning the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will be a new lightweight platform that will help the car offer a better performance and a higher mileage. The car will also offer an optional Automated Manual Transmission (AMT), which will help it become a better rival to the Maruti Suzuki Swift.
The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will comply with the upcoming stringent safety norms under the BSNVAP banner. Hence, its bodyshell will offer a higher crash protection. All the trim levels will have to offer standard safety equipment like dual front airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors, seat belt reminder for front passengers, and speed alert system.
The higher variants will even offer a rear parking camera. Other features will include a cooled glovebox, dual-tone, diamond-cut alloy wheels, LED DRLs, touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and rear AC vents. Stay tuned to Gaadiwaadi for more on the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10.
