There was news of the all-new Hyundai Grand i10 being spot during tests. We were suspecting this new vehicle to come in by late 2019 or early 2020. Now the company has come up with the date for the launch of the 2019 Hyundai i10. The company has announced the launch of eight new products in India till 2020, of which 5 will be new-generation vehicles. One of them for certain is the Grand i10 2019. Hyundai will be going highly aggressive with its product strategy in the coming years and this new hatch will be a solid product.
The current hatch was launched in 2013 and it got its update in 2017. We expect the new car to be based on an all-new platform and this will be shared with Kia Motors too. This new platform will be wider, offer longer wheelbase and will be flexible. The Hyundai new hatchback will offer more features and better performing engines too. To begin with, the Grand i10 got the moniker Grand as it had a longer wheelbase than in other markets. It offered extra features for the Indian car market and this was then exported to other markets too. Europe continued to have i10. What will the new car have on offer? We share all the details on the same. Read further to know more.
2019 Hyundai Grand i10 Launch Date in India
Hyundai has plans to get the new compact SUV to India and even the Grand i10 is on its radar. The launch of the all-new 2019 Hyundai Grand i10 on 20th August. This is one of the most key trump cards for Hyundai in India. The South Korean automaker will not delay its new-gen launch by any means. The launch of new gen will lead to a rise in sales of the old product. The old product will be available until the time the newly launched car come to the roads.
2019 Hyundai Grand i10 Price in India
|Hyundai Grand i10 2019 Variants||Expected Price (on-road)|
|Base petrol||₹ 5 lakhs|
|Top petrol manual||₹ 7.5 lakhs|
|Top diesel manual||₹ 8.5 lakhs|
The new Grand i10 2019 will be priced in the range ₹ 5 lakhs to ₹ 8.5 lakhs (on-road). This will make it competitive. The petrol engine will be the major seller as this is a petrol dominated segment. So, we expect the pricing to be aggressive.
2019 Hyundai Grand i10 Design
It is a bit early to claim the styling of the new Grand i10 2019, but it will surely retain the tall boy design that we have seen on the current hatch. The styling will continue to be subtle, and not aggressive or sporty. This will be a premium family hatchback, while the new Santro will be the affordable family car. The design language from the new Santro 2018 will re-define the styling for upcoming Hyundai cars.
The new Grand i10 will come with projector headlamps, day-time running LEDs, 15-inch wheels and LED tail lamps. The Grand i10 shall offer diamond-cut alloy wheels on the top model. Expect the width of the vehicle to increase more than the wheelbase.
The car has been recently rendered by a leading publication to show us and give buyers an idea about how the car will look like in real life.
2019 Hyundai Grand i10 Interiors
On the inside, expect fresh and premium styling. Black and beige colours will be executed on the dashboard. The steering wheel shall have leather wrap and even controls for audio. The instrument cluster will not even have driver information system reading mileage and distance to empty as well. The centre console will consist of a 7-inch touchscreen system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, reverse camera, navigation and even 1 GB of internal storage of music. This touch screen will also feature Hyundai’s new blue link feature. Therefore this will make the car a connected car. To add to this the car, will get all the feature that the blue link offers in then Hyundai Venue.
This time around climate control shall be offered, cooled glovebox and maybe even sunroof. Hyundai will even offer rear AC vents. As the Grand i10 will be wider, this time there will be room for three at the back in comfort. The boot size will also be bigger than last time. The other features like rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and even cruise control are liking to be offered on the Grand i10 2019.
2019 Hyundai Grand i10 Engine and Transmission
Expect Hyundai to offer the same 1.2-litre petrol engine that will come with five-speed manual and AMT options. The diesel will also be 1.2-litre with manual only. Hyundai will be looking at offering better performance in the petrol engine and improving its drivability. This will mean the need to shift gears will reduce in city. This will make it much easier to drive. The diesel engine is anyways good, we aren’t sure if the Grand i10 will come with diesel AMT. With the Santro, Hyundai shall be introducing the AMT in the Hyundai family.
The engines on offer will have good performance and mileage on diesel will be high. The clutch is soft and gearshifts should be smooth like the current hatch.
The pictures show the car under camo but we can see changes in things like the headlights and the window line. The headlamps and the lights have been changed slightly. There will be new alloy wheels and also new interiors will include a big touch screen and a revised instrument cluster.
Hyundai has already begun road-testing for two of its upcoming products that will hit the showrooms in the future. The Carlino-based SUV was spied recently and now, fresh spy shots of Hyundai’s replacement for the Grand i10 hatchback, have emerged on the internet. The next-gen Hyundai Grand i10 is likely to make a global debut sometime next year.
2019 Hyundai Grand i10 Variants
Hyundai will offer the new Grand i10 2019 with Era, Magna, Sportz, Sportz (O), Asta and Asta (O) variants. We are expecting some more safety features, like six airbags, ABS + EBD + BA to begin with. Two airbags and ABS+EBD will be offered as a standard package.
