7. 2019 Hyundai Grand i10-Competition

After the tremendous success of the Hyundai Santro, the Indian second-largest automotive company sets the goal of releasing another “blockbuster” in the Indian market with the 2019 Premium Hyundai Grand i10. It is predicted to become a fierce enemy for the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift, Volkswagen Polo and the upcoming Ford Figo. Its lower variants will also bitterly rival the likes of Tata Tiago and Maruti Suzuki Celerio.  

With a very aggressive price range along with striking convenience and pleasure of the driving experience, the Hyundai Grand i10 has enormous advantages over the other opponents to win nail-bitingly in the competitions.

Personally speaking, the Grand i10 is odds-on to come with the bright prospect. It is a little early to say it would make another certain triumph like the previous models or not but it is currently the most-awaited vehicle in the Indian auto space.
