Hyundai’s Grand i10 has been treated to refreshed exterior styling, interior updates, and the addition of a sedan to the range.

New, bold exterior

Upfront an attractive, bigger, wider honeycomb grille spans across the entire front section giving the impression of a bigger car with a wider stance. Boomerang-shaped daytime running lights on Fluid derivatives along the outer sides of the grille round off the cleaned up front impression.

At the rear, the horizontal lines have been straightened and the rear lights feature a different, more harmonious configuration. Fluid derivatives are now fitted with new 15-inch alloy wheels while Motion versions ride on 14-inch wheels with stylised wheel covers.

Inside story

The biggest differentiator in terms of the interior of the sedan and hatchback is the colour with the hatchback finished in all black while the sedan features a mixture between black and grey on the front dashboard and inner door trims.

Both interiors feature black seats, with red detail trim on the air vents and seats of all derivatives. All models feature an eight-inch touchscreen that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a manual air conditioner.

Fluid derivatives gain a multi-function steering wheel with cruise control buttons as well as remote control buttons for the infotainment system and telephone.

The rear bench of the Fluid can fold down in a 60:40 split, while the Motion has a single bench backrest that folds down to enlarge the luggage area. Driver comfort is catered for by a height-adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat.

Under the bonnet

The refreshed Grand i10 hatchback is still available with a choice between two petrol engines which includes a three-cylinder 1.0-litre and a 1.2-litre four-cylinder. The newly added sedan is available with the 1.2-litre engine only.

Both engines are paired to a five-speed manual transmission, while the 1.2 litre is also available with a four-speed automatic transmission that drives the front wheels.

The 1.0-litre offers 48,5kW at 5 500rpm and 94Nm at 3 500rpm and uses 5,5 litres per 100km in manual guise or 5,9 litres per 100km in automatic configuration on the combined cycle.

The 1.2-litre boasts 61kW at 6 000rpm and 114Nm at 4 000rpm and uses 5,9 litres per 100km when fitted with the manual gearbox and 6,9 litres per 100km along with the automatic transmission in hatchback configuration.

Fitted with the same 1.2-litre engine the Grand i10 sedan is capable of an average fuel consumption of 5,5 litres per 100km or 5,7 litres per 100km in manual or automatic guise respectively.

Improved safety

All Grand i10 derivatives are fitted with driver and front passenger airbags, Isofix child seat attachments on the rear seats and pretensioners for the front seat belts. ABS with EBD is standard on all derivatives.

Model range and pricing

All derivatives are sold with a seven-year/200 000km warranty, a one-year/15 000km service plan and five-years/150 000km roadside assistance.
