    Hyundai will add another engine to its recently launched Grand i10 Nios range in India. We had reported on the hatchback getting a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol motor soon and now we can confirm that the company will showcase the Grand i10 1.0 turbo-petrol at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020, next month.

    The Grand i10 Nios' new engine will be the same turbo-petrol unit as the new Aura – the hatchback and the compact sedan already have shared underpinnings. This engine will deliver 100hp and 172Nm of torque and will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The power output of the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine is a decent bump from the standard car’s 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine and helps it pit better with the likes of the 83hp Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Ford Figo that comes with a 96hp engine.

    The standard Nios is available in 10 versions and like on the Aura, the 1.0-litre turbo petrol is expected to be available only on the top trim. Expect Hyundai to announce pricing for the 1.0-litre Grand i10 Nios soon after its Auto Expo 2020 debut in February.

    Hyundai will also showcase the next-gen Creta and the Verna facelift, along with a long list of other new vehicle showcases at the motor show.
