The all-new Hyundai Grand i10 Nios was unveiled last week and comes with a number of updates over the standard model. The suffix ‘Nios' according to Hyundai stands for ‘more', representing the increased dimensions, larger cabin space and improved performance.

The new model will, however, be sold alongside the standard Grand i10 hatchback, rather than replacing the current model. The new hatchback will be positioned between the standard Grand i10 and the Elite i20 in the brand's product lineup in the country.

The new Hyundai Grand i10 Nios does come with a new set of LED headlamps integrated with the turn indicators, the LED DRLs are now positioned uniquely at the edges of the signature cascading grille.

In terms of mechanicals, the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios will continue to be powered by the same engine as on the standard hatchback, currently on sale.

This includes a 1.2-litre ‘kappa' petrol and the 1.2-litre U2 CRDi diesel units. Both engines are however expected to be BS-VI compliant right from the start. We expect both engines to produce the same power outputs, if not slightly better than the standard Grand i10.

In terms of gearbox options, the Grand i10 Nios will come with a standard five-speed manual, with the optional AMT automatic transmission as well.
