The Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS BS6 petrol variant mileage figures have been revealed. The company had updated the petrol engine to achieve BS6 compliance earlier this year, and also added a new turbo-engine to the Grand i10 NIOS BS6.
The Hyundai Grand i10 BS6 is known to be the next-generation model of the Grand i10 in the Indian market. The hatchback is offered with a host of engine options including the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine. The top-spec 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine produces 100bhp and 172Nm of torque.
According to Autocar India, the Grand i10 NIOS turbo-petrol engine returns an ARAI-tested mileage of 20.3km/l. In comparison, the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated engine returns 20.7km/l. Considering the huge power difference between both engines, the figures look negligible.
The other turbo-petrol hatchback offered in the Indian market is the Volkswagen Polo GT TSI. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine powering the Polo produces 110bhp and 175Nm of torque — 10bhp and 3Nm torque more than the Grand i10 NIOS.
However, the Polo returns an ARAI-certified mileage of 18.24km/l, which is 2km/l less than the Hyundai's turbo-petrol hatchback. Also, the Polo GT TSI engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox as compared to the Grand i10 NIOS's five-speed manual.
The Grand i10 NIOS Turbo is the cheapest car to be offered with the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine in the Indian market. Prices for the Grand i10 NIOS Turbo starts at Rs 7.98 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). The Grand i10 Turbo variant is offered on two trim levels: Sportz and Sportz (dual-tone). The turbo-petrol engine is offered with a standard five-speed manual gearbox only.
Apart from the Grand i10 NIOS turbo-petrol variant, the hatchback is also offered with a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. It produces 76bhp and 124Nm of torque, and comes mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or an AMT automatic. The same engine is also offered with a factory-fitted CNG kit. The 1.2-litre petrol-CNG unit churns out 66bhp and 95Nm of torque — 10bhp and 19Nm of torque less, compared to its petrol-powered version.
The Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS is the only hatchback among its competitors to offer a naturally-aspirated petrol engine, a petrol-CNG unit, a turbo-petrol motor, and a 1.2-litre diesel oil burner. Its rivals such as the Ford Figo, the Maruti Suzuki Swift, and the Tata Tiago, receive only petrol and/or diesel engine options.

The Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS offers the most versatility with engine options and appeals to a wider audience. The Grand i10 NIOS's appeal increase with turbo-petrol registering an impressive 20.3km/l.
