The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will be an all-new model inspired from the latest version of the Fluidic design language
The new Hyundai Grand i10 will launch around the 3rd quarter of this year. The third generation of the company’s popular B-segment hatchback will be the brand’s next big launch after the introduction of the Maruti Vitara Brezza and Mahindra XUV300 rivalling Hyundai Venue scheduled for 21st May launch. The new generation model of the traditional Maruti Swift rival will be a more modern version with premium features.
The new Hyundai Grand i10 will wear an evolved version of the current vehicle’s design and will have a similar silhouette. However, its front end will be designed as per the company’s latest version of the Fluidic design language. The side profile likely to have a rising beltline while even the rear should look sleeker and more aggressive.
The interior of the new Hyundai Grand i10 likely to offer more space than the current version. Its dashboard will hold a floating type touchscreen infotainment system and should even have aircraft propeller-inspired air vents that are found on the New-gen. Hyundai Santro.
The interior will have a dual tone finish and will have front dual airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors, speed-sensitive door locks, crash-sensitive door unlock, ISOFIX child seat mounts, high-speed alert and front seatbelt warning as standard across all variants.
Underpinning the new Hyundai Grand i10 will be an updated version of the current’ vehicles BA platform. While engine details aren’t known at the moment, the company is likely to use a BSVI-compliant version of the current vehicle’s 1.2-litre engine. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed SmartAuto AMT from Hyundai Santro, with the latter being a replacement for the current 4-speed automatic unit.
The fast dropping demand for diesel engines means that unlike the current model, the new Hyundai Santro won’t feature a diesel hear. This is because using a BSVI-compliant diesel engine will make the car too expensive, while the increase in prices of diesel cars is bound to minimize the demand for diesel-powered vehicles.
At the moment, the Grand i10 is the second-most popular car in its segment after the Maruti Swift. The launch of the new Hyundai Grand i10 could see the South Korean company finally reaching the top spot.
