It might be too early to speculate the mechanical specifications of the new vehicle, but we can expect that it will have the same BSVI powertrains as the upcoming Grand i10, which will be launched next year. It has also been confirmed by the South Korean automaker that its forthcoming products will come with Smart Auto AMT unit which will be introduced with the 2018 Hyundai Santro. The AMT gearbox will take the place of the current torque converter gearbox on the Hyundan sedan carline.
