The CNG variant of the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios has just been launched. The CNG option is available in two trims – Magna, which is priced at Rs 6.63 lakh, and Sportz, which is priced at Rs 7.16 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Under the hood lies the same BS6-compliant 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine from the standard model, which produces 69hp and 95Nm of torque when run on CNG. These figures are 14hp and 19Nm lower than what the unit makes in petrol mode. The CNG versions are offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
In terms of equipment, there is no change when compared to the petrol Grand i10 Nios. This means the Magna version gets central locking, speed-sensing door locks, day/night IRVM, keyless entry, tilt adjustable steering, rear AC vents, 2-DIN music system with Bluetooth support, and more. The Sportz version additionally gets features like projector fog lights, reverse parking camera, 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support.
The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Ford Figo and Maruti Suzuki Ignis. However, the Grand i10 Nios is the only offering in the segment to have three powertrain options – petrol, diesel and CNG, with none of the above mentioned competitors have CNG versions.
