Hyundai Grand i10 Exterior
Hyundai designs its cars brilliantly and the Grand i10 is no different. The Grand i10 follows Hyundai’s elegant Fluidic design language strictly. The car looks beautiful, elegant and premium than any other car in its segment. The Grand i10 matches the design of its bigger cousin Hyundai i20 closely but is more compact than i20. The Grand, as the company likes to call it, is focused on the youth of the country and it does not disappoint. The elegant-looking vehicle has sculptured bodylines, which makes the car very soothing to look at. The subtle crease, which starts just before the front door and connects to the tail lamps, makes the car elegant while the strong-shaped crease on the bottom of the front and rear doors makes the car look very aggressive. Following the Hyundai design language, Grand i10 gets sweeping headlamps, making the front fascia very strong. The fog lamps have been placed very conveniently in the especially-designed dams with black inserts to give it a manly look.
The Grand i10 also gets roof rails in the mid and top variants, which adds to the sporty look. The Grand i10 looks very sporty and the rear spoiler makes things even better. Premium as it can get, Hyundai also offers optional diamond-cut alloy wheels on the top-of-the-line Asta variant and Sportz(O) AT. The Magna and Sportz variants get full size wheel covers, while the base Era model gets just the steel rims. Hyundai has also made a point by equipping body coloured bumpers with all variants. The base model misses out on body-coloured door handles, tail gate and mirrors. Hyundai has made a lot of things exclusive to the top-end variants. The micro roof antenna does not come checked with the base Era model. The Sportz and Asta models get the chrome dipped outside door handles for a premium look. The waist-line moulding, which saves the car from a lot of scratches, is also missing out from the base Era, Magna and Sportz models. The sporty-looking roof rails come as standard only with the Sportz and Asta models. The premium-looking indicators on the outside rear view mirrors also come as standard only with the Sportz and Asta models. Hyundai has made the Grand i10 brilliant but a lot of things are yet missing on the lower variants.
People familiar with the car will find the similar ambiance inside. The carmaker has retained the upmarket cabin with the two-tone dashboard and steering remaining the same as before. However, they do get subtle changes. The key attention will be definitely the new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with the interface similar to that of sibling Elantra sedan. And this is not a plain jane unit but powered by Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and even MirrorLink. The navigation apps of your smartphone can be easily integrated into the system.
The infotainment also provides visuals from the rear camera. On the other hand, the lower variants get the 5-inch touchscreen unit which supports USB, Bluetooth, and Aux-in connectivity. The output from the 4-speakers is good enough for the car of this stature.The seats have now become more comfortable and supportive. They now get the right amount of cushioning to keep you tucked in. You get ample amount of legroom at the rear. The height adjustable driver seat and the tiltable steering wheel set you in the preferred driving position. Coming to the feature list, the carmaker this time has installed automatic climate control which adds more to the comfort factor. And the rear ac vents are just icing on the cake, especially in the torching summer weathers.
Further, the feature list continues to impress us with the addition of voice recognition button added to the steering wheel. Other than that, you get the same comfort and convenience including power outlets at front and rear, cooled glovebox, one-touch power windows, push-start stop button and electrically adjustable ORVM. Talking about space, as the name (grand) suggests, it’s utterly convenient for 5 passengers. The car offers best in segment 256L of boot space.
