Hyundai has launched the CNG variant in the Magna trim of the popular Grand i10 in India at an additional premium of Rs 67,000 over the gasoline-fueled version.
With no much promo advertisement, Hyundai has silently brought the Hyundai Grand i10 CNG on sale in India at the price mark of around Rs 6.39 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) or Rs 6.41 Lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Instead of offering the option of CNG for fleet operators as it did in the past, the South Korean manufacturer now made the Grand i10 CNG accessible for the private buyers too. The factory fitted CNG kit is available on the mid-spec Magna trim only which is priced well above the equivalent petrol version at an additional premium of Rs 67,000.
Hyundai has silently introduced an all-new Grand i10 CNG variant in the domestic market to fill the gap in the dwindling demands for small capacity conventional vehicles.
The Hyundai Grand i10 has been a roaring success in B-segment for a long period of time. The car has been massively praised for a range of comfort and connectivity bits that it has on offer. Understanding this, Hyundai retains almost all the features from the regular Grand i10 to the new CNG variant. It continues to get a decently long list of equipment comprising atop roof rails giving the car a sporty look, steering-mounted controls with Bluetooth enabled audio system, remote door locking, rear AC vents, all electrically-controlled windows, power adjustable ORVMs along with a standard safety suite among others.
The Hyundai Grand i10 CNG is available in the Magna trim one-off with the ex-showroom price of Rs 6.39 Lakh (Delhi).
The CNG version of Hyundai Grand i10 features the same 1.2-litre engine under the bonnet compared to the outgoing petrol configuration. It puts out a maximum power of 80 bhp and 110 Nm of torque on the petrol version and 64 bhp /98 Nm units on the CNG counterpart. A conventional 5-speed manual gearbox is in charge of the transmission duties.
After the Hyundai Santro, the Grand i10 is the second model in Hyundai’s lineup to receive a CNG avatar. It does help the popular hatchback up the game to compete against the likes of Ford Figo or Maruti Swift which are, in fact, available with IC engines only.
Besides the CNG version, Hyundai is also gearing up for a generation change of the Grand i10 by the year-end of 2019. Also, another brand new member from Hyundai’s family, the Venue is all set to be launched in India in the coming weeks. This is the first connected compact SUV from the South Korean brand ever and is scheduled to go on sale on May 21, 2019.
