It’s been three years since the Hyundai Grand i10 made its global sales debut in India and it’s about time for a mid-life refresh. A prototype of the Hyundai Grand i10 facelift has been spotted testing in Chennai-Bangalore highway.
The test mule has its front and rear fascias hidden. We expect a revised grille, new bumpers, tweaked headlamps and taillights. The car is also seen with new dual-tone alloy wheels.
The spy photos didn’t reveal the interior but we expect minor upgrades. The top-end variant could get a touchscreen infotainment system.
Hyundai Grand i10 has been gaining over the aging Maruti Swift of late and the mid-life refresh would make it an even stronger product. Under the skin, the Grand i10 facelift is most likely to retain the existing 1.2-litre Kappa 2 four-cylinder petrol engine which pumps out 83 PS and 114 Nm of torque, and 1.1-litre three-cylinder diesel engine that is rated at 71 PS and 160 Nm of torque.
The petrol motor is available with a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The oil burner is available only with a 5-speed manual unit.
The Hyundai Grand i10 facelift is expected to be ready early next year. The Xcent compact sedan would also adopt similar upgrades eventually.
