2017 Hyundai Grand i10 gets an update
Hyundai has just revealed the refreshed Grand i10 for the 2017 model year. Longer than the regular i10, the Grand i10 moves up to the B-Segment where it faces other hatchback stalwarts like the Honda Jazz, Suzuki Swift and Toyota Yaris.
Starting with the front fascia, the 2017 Grand i10 gets an updated look. It gets a slightly larger chrome trim piece on the grill while the front air dam has been reworked. Replacing the slats on the airdam is a honeycomb design which gives the new Grand i10 a fresher look. Also redone are the fog light housings which are now L-shaped.
Hyundai also fitted the 2017 Grand i10 with active aerodynamics in the form of air shutters behind the airdam. Hyundai says that it helps the car cut through the air at cruising speeds and open up when stationary.
Around the back, Hyundai also gave the Grand i10 a once over. It gains the large unpainted bumper from the standard i10, as well as repositioned reflectors. In addition, it also gets integrated roof rails and new wheels are also part of this redesign.
As for its interior, it is largely carried over from the current Grand i10. These include the circular air-con vents, two tone panels and steering wheel. Infotainment systems may vary per market but in India, it receives a 7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, smartphone link and Navigation compatability for the top of the line models. Top-spec models also have automatic climate control, rear air-con vents and push-button start.
Two engines will be available for the 2017 Grand i10, one gas and one turbodiesel. The former is the carried-over 1.2 liter Kappa engine that produces 86 PS with 119 Nm of torque and is available with either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual. The latter, on the other hand, is also a 1.2 liter unit that puts out 75 PS and 190 Nm of torque. The diesel model only comes with a manual transmission.
