Hyundai has recently launched its new hatchback offering the Grand i10 Nios, with its price starting from 4.99 lac ex-India. The launch is followed by the release of official TVC of the Grand i10 Nios, which highlights all the segment-first features that the car comes loaded with.
Hyundai Grand i10 Nios has been launched in India as the manufacturer’s 4th hatchback offering. Prices for the Nios start from Rs 4.99 lacs go up to Rs 7.99 lacs ex-showroom India. With the launch of the car, Hyundai has also released its official TVC that will now go on air across the country. The TVC emphasize on all the first-in-segment features that the car is loaded with. Hyundai claims to “Make you feel alive” with the Nios, and we believe it somehow does that for sure, in terms of its design and features.
New Grand i10 Nios surely addresses the need of suffix Nios, which means 'More'.
The Nios feels refreshed with the new design and face given to it. The Cascading grille at the front houses boomerang-style LED DRLs, while the headlamps and fog lamps have been fitted with projectors. The overall silhouette of the car is in line with the i10 tradition while the headlamp design is reminiscent of the second-gen i10. The car is shod with diamond-cut dual-tone R15 alloy wheels, roof rails, shark-fin antennae, and blackened out c-pillar, together all these styling elements do make it look distinct and alive. The sheet metal changes are also infused in with much better detail, the sculpted bonnet and the tailgate that has Venue-ish appeal to the rear of the car.
The Nios will be offered in 6 single-tone colors, namely white, red, silver, blue, grey, and teal, while there will be 2 dual-tone color options on offer. The polar white and aqua teal can be had with the optional black roof to go dual-tone. As on with the outside, there are dual option color options that can be selected for the inside. The car’s interior can be had in an option of red and teal dual-tone finish to further spruce up the color game.
The Grand i10 Nios TVC claims a new tagline for the car, "Makes you feel alive".
The car now is bigger than the existing Grand i10, by 40mm in length, 20mm in width and the wheelbase also is 15mm longer. These figures translate to a spacious cabin which now comes equipped with a lot of segment-first features. The car’s spacious interiors are now host features like, wireless-charging, tilt-adjustable leather-wrapped steering wheel housing the audio controls, 8 inch ICE system with support of Android Auto and Apple Carplay coupled to four-speaker setup from Arkamys, cooled gloves box, push-button start with keyless entry, electronically adjustable wing mirrors, and rear parking camera. All these features do stand tall to the word Nios, which means, ‘More’.
Hyundai, however, has not made much change to the mechanicals. The car will continue with the old but reliable petrol and diesel mills from the Grand i10. The petrol mill is now BS-VI compliant, while the diesel is still in BS-IV state. Both the engines displace 1200 cubic-centimeters producing 83bhp of peak power with a 4 cylinder configuration for petrol and a 3 cylinder configuration for the diesel. To ensure the safety of the passenger Nios will be offered with 2 airbags for the front row occupants, seat belt reminder, high-speed alert, ABS with EBD assistance, rear parking sensors all standard across the range. With another launch expected soon from the manufacturer, it seems that India is one country that Hyundai believes, that it holds big success plans for them.
