The Hyundai Grand i10 has been a strong seller in the mid-size hatchback segment but of late, the car has started to show its age. It rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Ford Figo among others in the segment and often features in the monthly top 10 selling cars list. Despite its popularity, the Grand i10 is not a common sight on the modification scene. However, the video below by Raahee shows a Grand i10 that has been modified into a unique hatchback. Check out the video to see the car in action before we move on to the details of this mod job.
This Hyundai Grand i10 has been modified by Smoke’em Customs and looks pretty radical to say the least. It has been painted in a dark grey shade with red highlights all over the body. Even the alloy wheels have been draped in red which gives the car an interesting look. According to the video, this Grand i10 was a lower-end variant but now has been given a complete makeover. Talking about the changes made on it, the car has been fitted with an aftermarket body kit which gives it the badass stance it carries.
The custom wide body kit equipped on the car results in new front and rear bumper, side skirts and custom splitter as well as a diffuser. The headlamps have been blacked out and LED DRLs have been placed on the lower end of the bumper. The bonnet now gets a Korean language inscription tattoo on it along with air vents. The car now rides on aftermarket 16-inch rims as opposed to 14-inch rims on the stock Grand i10. Apart from these aesthetic mods, a few mechanical additions include a full system exhaust custom made by the guys who modified the car.
At the rear, the twin tailpipes not only add to the look of the car but also sound pretty good when the engine is revved. However, only one of them is functional. A spoiler adorns the roof at the rear adding to the sporty look of the car. The intake has also been modified an in place now is a BMC unit with a turbofan. Coming to the interiors, the car gets custom tan leather seats, woofer, speaker, touch infotainment system, custom matting along with an aftermarket gear knob. The whole mod job tool around 40 days to finish and the end result is truly spectacular.
Talking about the Hyundai Grand i10, the hatchback will get a new generation model this month. Hyundai has planned to launch the new Grand i10 on the 20th of this month and the car will continue to rival the likes of the Maruti Swift and the Ford Figo in the B-Segment hatchback category. The 2020 Hyundai Grand i10 is likely to be powered by Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms compliant petrol and diesel engines. The South Korean automaker is likely to equip the car with 5 speed AMT gearbox options on both engines. As for pricing, the car is expected to start from around Rs. 5 lakhs for the base petrol model.
