The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 will get an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen unit.
The wheelbase is expected to be increased.
The roof height is also likely to be increased.
The 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 has been spied testing in the country ahead of its expected launch in August. First launched in 2013, the popular B-segment hatchback will see a generation change, sporting radical visual and mechanical changes. Also, expect it to get a bunch of new features, in tandem with rivals.
While the hatchback will retain the basic silhouette, expect it to receive new styling elements for an enhanced look. As revealed through earlier spy images, it will sport Hyundai’s quintessential cascading grille in front, a restyled bumper and new swooping headlamps. A new upswept beltline and a more flexuous greenhouse will add new details to it.
Dimensions are expected to be retained save for the roof height and wheelbase, that is likely to be increased. Unlike the current Grand i10 sold in Europe, which is 100 mm shorter, the new-gen model will measure the same as the India-spec Grand i10. It will also share wheelbase with the Indian version, which is currently 40 mm smaller than the Indian model.
The new-gen Grand i10 reportedly shares underpinnings with the recently launched Hyundai Venue. This platform will be seen in Kia’s new-gen Picanto and upcoming sub-four-meter SUV codenamed ‘Kia QYI’. On the inside, the hatchback will see prominent changes such as a newly designed dashboard, centre console and steering wheel. An 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen unit, supported by Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Blue Link will be layered inside.
As for the 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 specifications, it will come with BS6 compliant 1.2L kappa petrol and 1.2L U2 oil burner with a 5-speed MT and 5-speed AMT gearbox. In addition, there could be a 1.0L T-GDI petrol unit with a 7-speed DCT.
