New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 Ride and Handling

The suspension on the New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 is soft as before and it makes the ride comfortable in day to day city driving conditions however lending it a bit of body roll during sharp turns at high speeds. The clever transmission mated with a capable engine ensures that one doesn’t keep reaching out to the gear knob every now & then. The light steering set up at lower speeds aids while driving through traffic congestions or when trying to slot your car into a tight parking spot. The steering response and feel are still areas where Hyundai has got some work to do and the New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 needs to match up to competition.

New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 Engine

The introduction of Fiat 1.3 Multijet in India around a decade back transformed the diesel hatchback segment & it has been ruling the industry since. Until now, when Hyundai decided to shift focus from Diesel Sedans to Diesel Hatchbacks offering one of the most advanced & refined compact diesel engine in the New Hyundai Grand i10 2017. The U2 1.2 CRDi engine is here to set new benchmarks in the industry.

The 1.2 CRDi Diesel Engine introduced in the New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 belongs to the 2nd generation of U2 family of engines from the Hyundai stable. It produces 74bhp of peak power at 4,000 rpm and 190Nm of torque at 1,750 ~ 2,250 rpm. It is a very compact engine with impressive output figures perfectly matched for Indian driving requirements. The engine does send a shudders way into the passenger cabin during ignition & while shutting off. However, we found it to be very peppy and fairly quiet during operation.

If you are still carrying an impression from the outgoing diesel engine please be advised that the New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 is a massive improvement over the 1st gen engine. During our test we were delighted to notice the absence of turbo lag and the notorious turbo whistle, something difficult to miss on the earlier generation engine.

The New Hyundai Grand i10 2017 retains the same 1.2-litre petrol engine that churns 82bhp of power. A five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmission will be offered. Hyundai will continue to offer the Grand i10 with a CNG option also.
