2023 Facelifted Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Is Finally Here
Hyundai Motors India has launched the facelifted Grand i10 Nios in India, with prices starting from Rs 5.69 lakh (ex-showroom India). It has received some notable design modifications and a host of new features. Bookings for the hatch are already underway for a token amount of Rs 11,000, while deliveries are planned to begin soon.
2023 Hyundai Grand i10 Nios – What’s New?
The facelifted iteration of the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios brings new life to its design. A comprehensive set of changes has been made to its visual appearance. There are body-coloured panels flanking the new blacked-out grille that houses the revised arrow-shaped LED DRLs. Moreover, it features a new design for alloy wheels on the sides and a thoroughly redesigned rear end with connected LED tail lamps with a revised design and a remodelled boot lid.
The carmaker has also introduced a new Spark Green shade, available both in single-tone and dual-tone options.
Interior and Features
Inside, a new colour scheme is offered for the facelifted model as well as a new instrument cluster with analogue dials and a multi-information display (MID). The other notable changes and additions include: –
- New seat upholstery
- Footwell lamp
- Automatic headlamps
- Up to six airbags (four airbags standard)
- Electronic stability control
- Tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS)
- Hill hold assist
- ISOFIX seat anchorages
Features like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, keyless entry with push-button start, leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto AC, rear AC vents, ABS with EBD, and parking camera, have been carried over from the pre-facelift model.
Is there any mechanical change?
Hyundai hasn’t made any change beneath the bonnet. The 2023 Hyundai Grand i10 Nios retains the existing 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, with an optional factory-fitted CNG kit. However, the engine is now E20 (20 per cent Ethanol Blend) and BS6 Phase 2 emission norms compliant.
The gasoline mill is rated at 83PS/113Nm and gets the choice of a 5-speed manual and Automated Manual Transmission (AMT). The CNG model, on the other hand, produces 69PS/95Nm and comes paired with a manual gearbox. The 1-litre turbo-petrol engine has been dropped for now.
