Hyundai officially revealed the Grand i10 Nios yesterday in India and now, the fuel efficiency figures along with the dimensions of the mid-size hatchback are out. According to a report by Carwale, the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios petrol manual variants will have a fuel efficiency of 20.7 km/l while the petrol AMT variants will have a fuel efficiency score of 20.5 km/l. As revealed by these figures, the difference between the mileage of petrol manual and AMT is very minor. The diesel-powered manual variants of the car, on the other hand, will have a fuel efficiency score of 26.2 km/l while its diesel AMT counterparts will have a fuel efficiency score of 28.4 km/l. Compared to the petrol variants, the diesel manual and AMT variants have a considerable mileage difference between them.
When compared to the current Grand i10 models, the Nios version of the car has a better fuel efficiency across all engine and gearbox options. The petrol engine on the Grand i10 Nios will be BSVI compliant right from the time of launch. The diesel engine, on the other hand, will be BSVI ready. Speaking of which, the engine options on the Nios include a 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine and a 1.2-litre CRDi diesel engine. The petrol engine will churn out 81 Bhp of power along with 114 Nm of torque. The diesel engine, on the other hand, will churn out 74 Bhp of power and 190 Nm of torque. Talking about the transmission options on both the engines, both will get a five-speed manual transmission along an AMT as an option.
Taking about the dimensions of the Grand i10 Nios, the report by Carwale reveals that the car will measure 3805mm in length, 1680mm in width, 1520mm in height and it will have a wheelbase of 2450mm. Compared to the current-gen model, it is 40mm longer, and 20mm wider but the height remains unchanged. However, the wheelbase has increased by 25mm. The Grand i10 Nios sports a new look with sleeker headlamps, grille-mounted C-shaped LED DRLs and an overall shaper profile than the current-gen model of the car. The car rides on new dual-tone machined alloy wheels that enhance the aesthetic appeal of the car. Note that Hyundai will not discontinue the current model sold in the country but rather the Nios will be sold alongside the regular Grand i10.
Talking about the interiors, the cabin design of the Grand i10 Nios has been revamped and looks fresh. The dashboard sports a dual-tone theme and comes equipped with a floating-type infotainment system. The steering wheel is also new and the car gets rotary knobs for the HVAC system. The new infotainment system will also offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, though it will not get connected BlueLink feature like on the Venue. Hyundai will launch the Grand i10 Nios in India on 20 August, which makes it around 10 days away from now. Once launched, the model will rival against the likes of Ford Figo and Maruti Suzuki Swift among others in the mid-size hatchback segment.
