    Next-gen Hyundai Grand i10 launch in October 2019

    Hyundai’s all-new Grand i10 has been spied testing in India and is likely to make its global debut sometime next year, with an India launch expected in October 2019.

    While the current-gen Grand i10 on sale here is larger than the model sold abroad, this time there will likely be just one version for the global market, focusing on rear legroom and backseat comfort.

    In terms of design, the next-generation Grand i10 is said to borrow a lot of design cues from the upcoming Hyundai Elantra facelift. A hexagonal front grille and wider headlamps and tail-lamps are two of the exterior design features expected on the hatchback.  The Maruti Suzuki Swift rival will feature a wider stance, with its tall-boy profile having been toned down. 

    The Grand i10 is already feature-packed but Hyundai could add even more features to the new model such as a larger touchscreen infotainment system and even a sunroof.

    Expect the current car’s 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine and 75hp, 1.2-litre diesel motor to be carried over with updates. However, the current torque convertor automatic will be replaced by a new AMT gearbox.

    Prices for the next-gen model will see a slight upwards bump, and are expected to be in the range of Rs 5-7 lakh (ex-showroom).
