Hyundai Grand i10 sedan spy shots

The new Hyundai Grand i10 sedan was recently spied on test along the Chennai-Vellore highway. This might be the indication that South Korean automakers are soon going to introduce this model in the Indian auto industry. Expected to go on display at 2014 Auto Expo, the new Grand i10 sedan will compete against the likes of Honda Amaze, Maruti DZire and Tata Indigo eCS.

The model on test was cloaked, though revealed portions indicated striking similarities to the recently launched Hyundai Grand i10 hatchback. The sedan on test also sported same roof like as the hatchback while interiors were also seen to include a number of common features to Grand i10 design.

Hyundai will be producing this sub 4 meter sedan from their manufacturing base in Sriperumbudur near Chennai, and it will sport the same 1.2 liter Kappa 2 petrol engine while a diesel engine may also be introduced. Hyundai may use a 1.1 liter three cylinder U2 diesel engine as seen on the Grand i10 or a 1.4 liter four cylinder diesel engine doing duty on Hyundai i20 which can produce 89 bhp power and 219 Nm torque. This engine will be mated to a 5 speed manual transmission while the diesel engine will be mated to a 6 speed manual transmission. Both these engines will be entitled to excise cuts as applicable to cars under 4 meters in length thus allowing the company to keep prices down. (Images via)
