Hyundai Grand i10 Possibly Discontinued In India

The Hyundai Grand i10 was introduced in India as a bigger and more premium version of the regular i10 hatchback. Soon afterwards, the Korean automaker also launched the Xcent sub-4 meter sedan, basically a Grand i10 with a boot. Now it seems like Hyundai has decided to discontinue the Grand i10 from the market for good, as the car is no longer visible on the brand’s official website. Carmakers can end production of a model if the demand for it is too weak, though that wasn’t exactly true here. Despite being older than other Hyundai models in the country, the Grand i10 continued to sell in decent numbers. Unfortunately, it is likely the end of the road for this hatchback, at least in India.

While there may still be some units left at a few dealerships, you might want to hurry up if you want one. The Hyundai Grand i10 was available in two variants – Magna and Sportz. The former had a sticker price of Rs 5.91 Lakh, while the better-equipped Sportz was priced at Rs 5.99 Lakh. Of course, these were their respective ex-showroom prices. For the Grand i10, its main contenders in our market were cars like the Ford Figo and Maruti Suzuki Swift. And compared to its meek i10 sibling, the Grand i10 had a more prominent and upscale-looking exterior design. The flair factor came mainly thanks to the more aggressive front fascia and larger proportions of the Grand i10.

Up front, the Grand i10 featured sharply-styled sweptback headlamps and a sportier bumper with a large grille. These were further complimented by angular fog lamp housings and a thick black bar on the grille. Along the sides, the Grand i10 featured diamond-cut multi-spoke alloy wheels, chrome door handles, and protective cladding on the doors. The rear design of the Grand i10 looked pretty good, too. It sported a roof spoiler, angular tail lamps, and some black cladding with static reflectors on the bumper. Compared to its Nios successor, the Grand i10 was shorter and narrower – it was just as tall, though. From nose to tail, the Grand i10 measures 3,765mm, while standard width is 1,660mm. Finally, the total boot capacity of the Hyundai Grand i10 is 256 liters.

The cabin of the Hyundai Grand i10 is a pretty decent place, if not particularly exciting. It features a beige-black dual-tone finish which makes it seem more premium and airy than a regular i10. Obviously, the whole layout of the dashboard and the various controls look quite dated, but everything works as intended. Build quality is pretty average for the class, though the Nios is marginally better on this front. In terms of features, the Grand i10 offered the usuals such as keyless entry, electrically-operated door mirrors, climate control, power windows, parking sensors, and a touchscreen infotainment system. Under the hood, the Hyundai Grand i10 houses a 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 82hp and 113Nm of torque. This unit was then mated to a traditional 5-speed manual gearbox.
