Hyundai Motor India, India's second largest automaker is ready to launch the Grand i10 facelift. It is expected to hit the Indian shores in January 2017. Earlier the company already had revealed the pictures of the facelifted model in the United Kingdom.
The 2017 Grand i10 was spotted testing in India several times. The test mule was heavily camouflaged and it didn't reveal much. However, it's clear that the model will feature several exterior as well as interior changes.
It is expected that the new i10 will share the styling cues with the UK-spec model. The car will get a hexagonal grille and round DRLs which are placed on both sides. Both the front and rear bumpers are restyled, while the headlamp design remains the same.
It also features sporty fog-lamp enclosures and diamond-cut alloy wheels. Advanced safety and connectivity features will be offered with the top variant, along with an all-black/blue with maroon colour scheme and leather upholstery.
The model will be powered by the same 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine and a 1.1-litre three-cylinder U2 VGT oil burner.
When Hyundai launches the 2017 Grand i10, it will compete in the entry-level hatchback segment with Ford Figo, Chevrolet Beat and the Tata Tiago.
