Hyundai India, the second largest car maker in the country, gave their fifth hatchback in the form of Grand i10. Their first four include Eon, Santro, i10 and i20. So what was the need to add one more hatchback? Hyundai India says that buyers in India are moving towards the premium segment. In the entry level hatchback, they did not have a premium car, for eg Maruti Suzuki Swift. With the Grand i10, they no longer have that hole in their portfolio.
Other than this, Hyundai India says that this is a Made for India car. The changes (compared to 2014 i10 Europe) which they have incorporated in the India spec model, include longer wheelbase, giving 100 mm longer overall length, rear AC vents (first in the segment), two tone beige interiors with fabric that will keep interiors cooler, and an elongated rear window.
2014 Hyundai Grand i10, will be seen with exclusive features, yet to be featured in a car in the segment which it has been launched. Positioned between the i10 and i20, the Grand i10 will come in with both petrol and diesel options and will benefit from the Hyundai Fluidic design language. Interiors are contemporary in design while exteriors radiate a degree of quality and style.
Outstanding features to be noted in the Grand i10 are its 2 Din integrated audio system with 1 GB internal memory, steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, rear AC vents and push button key. The Grand i10 also comes in with a cooled glove box, smart key function and driver’s side auto down power window. Safety features will include adjustable and foldable OVRMs and rear parking sensors as the vehicle itself sits on 14” alloy wheels.
