The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 is expected to be available only with a petrol engine option. It will be based on a revised version of the BA platform

The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 is only months away from its launch and has been spotted testing on numerous occasions. Going by reports from many media outlets, the all-new version of the traditional Maruti Swift rival will launch in October 2019.

The launch of the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will follow the Maruti Vitara Brezza-rivalling Hyundai Styx and the Hyundai Kona EV, both of which will be launched in the coming months. The new Grand i10 will be underpinned by a modified version of the current car’s BA platform and will even use the same petrol engine in a BSVI-compliant format.

There will be no diesel engine option for the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 as the demand for diesel-powered small cars has fallen by a huge extent now. Also, BSVI-compliant diesel engines will be much pricier than the BSIV-compliant motors, which means there will be a huge increase in prices of diesel-powered vehicles. Another difference between the next and the current generation of the i10 will be the non-availability of the 4-speed automatic transmission option with the new model.

Instead, the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will be available with a ‘Smart-AUTO’ 5-speed AMT that will make sure that the price difference between manual and auto version is not much and that even the fuel efficiency stays the same. There are good chances of the AMT option being available on the mid- as well as the high-level trims.

The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will have an evolutionary design that will feature a familiar silhouette but will carry the company’s latest face due to an angular cascading grille, a bold bumper and a sleek headlamp. In the side profile, the top-end version will have stylish dual-tone alloy wheels.

The interior will be more spacious and will have a floating-type infotainment unit that will offer both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other features will include multifunction steering wheel, automatic climate control, rear AC vents and cooled glovebox.
