Hyundai Grand i10 was removed from Hyundai's official website, suggesting that this model will go out of production soon.
Recently, Hyundai India has quietly removed the Grand i10 model from its official website. This update hints at the imminent discontinuation of the old-gen Grand i10 from the market. Last year, Hyundai launched the new-gen Hyundai Grand i10 Nios. The new model was sold alongside the old-gen Grand i10. The emission of the old Grand i10 might come as a surprise for many since this model remains a good demand in the hatchback segment.

Compared to the new Hyundai Grand i10, the new-gen Grand i10 Nios comes with a distinctive design for both the exterior and interior. Moreover, the i10 Nios is also added with a host of features including a bigger touchscreen infotainment system, a revised instrument cluster with new 5.2-inch multi-infotainment display, wireless charger, a rear power outlet, and brand-new Arkamy premium audio system.
In terms of powertrain, the Hyundai Grand i10 and the Grand i10 Nios shares mostly similar powertrain options. Lately, Hyundai Grand i10 was available with only one powertrain option. The hatchback derives power from a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder NA petrol engine which can generate 82 BHP and 113 Nm. The power is delivered to the front wheel via a 5-speed manual gearbox. There are two variants on offer, Magna and Sportz. The prices for these variants are 5.91 lakh and 5.99 lakh, respectively.
At the moment, Hyundai has three hatchback models including the Santro, Grand i10 Nios and new-gen i20 hatchback. Hyundai Santro is the entry-level option, offered from Rs 4.63 lakh to Rs 6 lakh. Hyundai Grand i10 Nios is priced from Rs 5.13 lakh to Rs 8.21 lakh. The Hyundai i20, positioned as the premium hatchback, is available from Rs 6.80 lakh to Rs 11.33 lakh.
Besides the halt of the Hyundai Grand i10, previously, Hyundai silently dropped the Corporate Edition variants from the Santro and Grand i10 Nios in our market. Another victim of Hyundai’s portfolio update is the Hyundai Venue 1.0L Turbo Petrol-MT.
After cutting off these variants from the line-up, Hyundai is planning to launch a new entry-level micro SUV. Codenamed AX1, the micro SUV will put up against the likes of Maruti Ignis and upcoming Tata HBX. The upcoming model is likely to be underpinned by the Santro’s platform. Ahead of the launch, the new hatchback was spotted a few times in South Korea.
