The continuity of the diesel engine is still in question. Most of the manufacturers are saying goodbye to the diesel eninge especially with the entry-level model, citing that renovating diesel models to meet the BSVI requirements would lead to a price hike which is unlikely to capture a decent sales volume. Currently, Hyundai Grand i10 gets one diesel option which is the 1.2-litre U2 CRDi diesel that makes 75 PS and 190 Nm.
Hyundai Grand i10 will get a 5-speed AMT as a replacement for the 4-speed AT with the full model change. The new AMT option will be available alongside the ongoing 5-speed manual transmission.
