Hyundai Grand i10 facelift spied once again in India


The hatchback is not expected to feature any mechanical changes.

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. But thanks to Hyundai revealing the i10 Facelift last week, we know exactly how the new Grand i10 will be looking for India. It gets a revised grille, new bumpers, tweaked headlamps and taillights. The car is also seen with new dual-tone alloy wheels.

Interiors too get a nice upgrade and is now seen with a revised dashboard featuring more ergonomic dashboard and a large 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.
