Recently, the next-gen Hyundai Grand i10 has been spotted testing. It looks like an AMT version with the 5-speed AMT gearbox borrowed from the new-gen Santro.

Recently, Zigwheels has spied what seems to be the top-end variant of the Hyundai Grand i10. In terms of the exterior, it comes with projector headlamps with LED DRLs, front fog lamps, turn indicators on the outside rearview mirrors, two-tone alloy wheels and newly-styled LED tail lamps.

The interior of the Hyundai Grand i10 has been spotted, too. Despite being carefully camouflaged, the cabin of the new Hyundai Grand i10 is expected to be much more premium than that of the existing one. The vehicle is anticipated to borrow quite a few features from its sibling, the Hyundai Santro, such as the turbine-like air conditioner vents and the gear knob. The all-new Grand i10 is also likely to take some features from the upcoming Hyundai Venue, like the steering wheel and the floating touchscreen infotainment setup. Considering Hyundai’s tendency to add first-in-the-segment features, you can also expect the model to offer features like cruise control to have an advantage over the Ford Figo and the Maruti Swift.

Despite being heavily camouflaged, some of the interior features can still be expected.

The new Hyundai Grand i10 is expected to retain the 1.2-litre petrol motor and the 1.2-litre diesel unit, which can produce a maximum power/torque output of 83 PS/113 Nm and 75 PS/190 Nm, respectively, as its power sources. The South Korean automaker is also anticipated to substitute the 4-speed torque converter on the current model with a 5-speed AMT gearbox on the new one. Given the great demand for the Hyundai Santro CNG, Hyundai could also introduce a CNG kit on the new-gen Grand i10. The current model used to have a CNG variant but only on the 2016 and 2017 models. The new-gen Hyundai Grand i10 is expected to be launched in India later this year. Once launched in India, it is likely to be priced in the range of INR 5.2 lakh to INR 7.9 lakh.
