With the rising number of more feature-rich variants of CNG models in India, Hyundai India has announced two new variants for its Grand i10 NIOS CNG. The hatchback is now available with the top-end Asta variant. It gets a price tag of Rs 8.45 lakh, ex-showroom.
The top-end variant of Hyundai Grand i10 CNG gets a longer list of equipment compared to Magma, which was earlier the top-end variant available with the CNG-powered models. On the outside, the top-end Asta variant comes equipped with halogen projector headlamps and 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. It also gets a rear wiper and washer.
On the inside, the new Hyundai Grand i10 CNG Asta comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless charging and an engine start-stop button. The fully-loaded variant also offers a cooled glove box, adjustable rear seat headrests and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The Grand i10 NIOS CNG gets powered by a 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine. It produces a maximum power of 68 Bhp and a peak torque of 95.2 Nm when operating on CNG. In petrol mode, the same engine produces 82 Bhp and 114 Nm of peak torque. It gets a five-speed manual transmission as standard.
Hyundai also sells the all-new Grand i10 NIOS CNG with Magna variant priced at Rs 7.16 lakh and Sportz variant priced at Rs 7.7 lakh, ex-showroom.
Tata Motors became the first manufacturer in India to offer CNG with the top-end variants of the Tiago and Tigor in India. Later, Maruti Suzuki also started offering a more loaded ZXI variant with the Ertiga CNG. With the rising fuel prices in India, many buyers are looking for more appropriate fuel bills. That is why CNG is becoming so popular in the Indian market.
Hyundai will soon launch the all-new Tucson
Hyundai India recently revealed the all-new Tucson in the Indian market. The fourth-generation Tucson will offer segment-first features including ADAS.
The Hyundai Tucson will also introduce the South Korean automotive giant’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design language. It gets a plethora of sharp design angles and sharp lines all over. The most interesting part of the new design is the front grille.
The new parametric grille from the brand hides the DRLs when the car is turned off. The DRLs that are positioned on the grille itself glow as soon as the ignition turns on. It sure makes Tucson look very premium. The sides of the new Tucson get Z shape deep creases that add a sharp edge.
