Top 5 reasons we like the Hyundai Grand i10

If you’re looking for a stylish and affordable car that is easy to manoeuvre in the city and cheaper to run and maintain, the new Hyundai Grand i10 checks all the boxes. This is a perfect buy for young drivers as well as for small families, especially those on a shoestring budget. However, affordability is just one reason you would want to own the new Grand i10.

Here are our top five reasons we like this little hatchback:

For a small city car, a choice of two small engines is scarce. Hyundai offers a smart lineup of two trim levels – Motion and Fluid. The entry-level Motion is available with a 1.0L 3-cylinder petrol motor, creating 49 kW @ 5500 r / min power and 94 Nm @ 3500 r / min torque. The engine mates to either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The Fluid is also accessible with this powertrain.

For a more powerful drive, you can opt for the 1.2L 4-cylinder petrol engine, churning out 61 kW @ 6000 r / min power and 114 Nm @ 4000 r / min torque. This motor also pairs with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. While the peak output is available at a high 4,000 r/min, the elegantly spaced cogs and in-gear spurt are remarkably better than the preceding generation model.

Considering the rising fuel prices, buying a fuel-efficient city car is on every auto shopper's mind. The Motion manual ideally fits the bill, with a claimed fuel economy of 5.4 l / 100 km, which is exceptional for a hatchback. The automatic is a tad thirstier at 5.9 l / 100 km.

If you opt for the more powerful 1.2-litre naturally aspirated engine, you have to hit the petrol pumps more often. Hyundai rates it at 5.9 l / 100 km with manual transmission and 6.9 l / 100 km with automatic.

What makes the new Hyundai Grand i10 perfect for first-time buyers is the vehicle's low initial price tag, good standard features, low running expense, and compact size boasting modern styling.

We highly recommend it for young drivers and small families with young kids.

The best thing about the Grandi10 is the generous list of standard convenience and safety features. All the models come equipped with a 6.2” touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay / Android Auto, two USB ports, rear air vents, front and rear electric windows, ABS with EBD braking systems, driver and passenger airbags, ISOFIX child seat attachment, front and rear crumple zones, and so on.

The Fluid variants improve with a rear bench offering 60:40 folding capability, a multifunction steering wheel, faux leather seats, and rear park assistance.

 Affordable care with warranty and service plans

The affordable hatchback gives you peace of mind with its extensive 5-year / 150,000 km Manufacturer's Warranty and additional 2-year / 50,000 km Powertrain Warranty. Besides, the package includes a 5-year / 160,000 km Perforation Warranty, a 7-year / 150,000 km Roadside Assistance, and a 1-year 15,000km service plan. You can also enjoy a 4-month payment holiday on manual models if you buy now.
