The Grand i10 has been a consistent performer for the South Korean car maker. Not only has it positioned itself in the top 10 list of sellers but last month it even reached the podium! Launched almost three years back, the car is set to get a minor facelift soon. A test unit of the car has been spotted a few days back. Ahead of that Hyundai UK has revealed an update for the car, and the Indian model can gain design pointers from it.
Sold in the United Kingdom under the name i10, the car gains a restyled bumpers with rounded lamps in the front and reflectors of the same colour in the rear. The fog lamp enclosure seems to have borrowed cues from the new Elantra. Both the steel and alloy wheels gain a new design. Updated interiors include a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and new upholstery. High-tech goodies include a front collision warning system and lane departure warning system.
Powertrain options in the UK include a 1.0 litre and 1.25-litre petrol engines. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto gearbox. A special BlueDrive model, based on the 1.0-litre engine, also gets additional features to increase fuel efficiency. Engine options for the Indian updated Grand i10 will be the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.1-litre diesel mills.
The updated model in the UK is to be officially showcased at the Paris Motor Show.
