Powering the new Grand i10 will be a BS-VI compliant 1.2-litre Kappa engine in the same state of tune as the outgoing model, producing 83 hp output. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and the torque converter automatic gearbox will be replaced with a more affordable AMT automatic unit. The other engine will be the BS-VI version of the U2, 1.2-litre diesel unit that will only get a manual gearbox.

The Hyundai Grand i10 was in a dire need for an update considering it has been a while since any update was added to the small hatchback and also its main competitor Maruti Suzuki Swift is doing wonderfully good in the market.

Hyundai could follow the Maruti Suzuki strategy to keep the old Grand i10 selling with a ‘Prime’ suffix to cater to the fleet operations. Expect the price to be similar to the outgoing model, with more affordable automatic gearbox.
