Hyundai Grand i10 will now come in a petrol variant alone.
Hyundai has discontinued the diesel versions of the Grand i10 hatchback.
Hyundai Grand i10 petrol variants will be available in the price band of Rs 5.83 to 6.50 lakhs.
At the time of the launch, there was speculation that Hyundai will discontinue its diesel variants at some stage. Similarly, there were talks of reducing the number of options. Now, Hyundai has withdrawn its diesel variants of the Grand i10 hatchback.
The Hyundai Grand i10 is now available in the Magna, and Sportz trims of petrol and the bi-fuel version alone. The 1.2L petrol engine delivers a power of 83hp and a peak torque of 114Nm. The bi-fuel (petrol and CNG) variant produces 81.6hp/110Nm and 66.3hp/98Nm while running on petrol and CNG respectively.
There is no automatic transmission system available on the Grand i10 today with the petrol engine pairing with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Sportz trim gets the CNG option, but it is not confirmed whether the car has been updated to comply with BSVI emission norms.
The bright side of the withdrawal of the diesel option is that there is no overlap with the newly launched Grand i10 Nios. At the same time, it also ensures that the Hyundai Grand i10 does not get features like auto climate control, alloy wheels, height-adjustable driver seat, push-button start, and the rear wash wiper.
However, the Sportz trim features the 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. It also continues to feature the power-folding wing mirrors and rear parking camera.
The changes mean that the Hyundai Grand i10, priced between Rs 5.83 and 6.50 lakhs, will start above the Hyundai Santro that is available in the price range of Rs 4.30 to 5.79 lakhs. The top-end version will be available at the cost of the mid-spec petrol version of the Grand i10 Nios.
