Even with the rising popularity of SUVs and crossovers in the Indian market, hatchbacks remain quite popular in India. Hyundai India has become one of the largest brands in the Indian market, especially with the rising sales of its crossover models. Hyundai has started testing the new Grand i10 NIOS in South Korea and here are the latest pictures.
The new spy images by Rushlane suggest that the new Grand i10 NIOS will get a redesigned front end. The camouflaged pictures of the car indicate quite a few changes. The new spy images also suggest that the new Grand i10 will offer new V-shaped LED daytime running lamps. The new lamps will be positioned on the front bumper, and are closer to the ground.
The rear of the new Grand i10 also looks updated. The wraparound tail lamps with a redesigned bumper and a chrome-tipped exhaust add the sporty look. The test mule also gets new dual-tone alloy wheels.
Hyundai is unlikely to update the engine. Currently, the Grand i10 NIOS gets powered by a 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine. It produces 82 Bhp and 114 Nm of peak torque. It gets a five-speed manual transmission as standard and we may get to see an automatic transmission too.
Hyundai also sells CNG variants of the Grand i10 in the Indian market.
Hyundai recently introduced Venue N-Line
Hyundai India has recently introduced its second performance-oriented product – the Venue N-Line. This is the second N-Line bred product after the all-new i20 N-Line in the Indian market. The new Venue N-Line gets a price tag of Rs 12.16 lakh and it will be available in two variants – N6 and N8.
The new Venue N-Line looks sportier, thanks to all the new additions to the car. Starting with the new larger spoilers at the front and rear, the Venue N-Line looks more aggressive too. The car also gets new side skirts and bumper splitters at both ends. The N-Line gets distinctive red accents on the roof rails and the brake callipers.
The cabin of the new Hyundai Venue N-Line also gets a lot of updates. It now gets an all-black cabin with contrasting red accents on the gear knob, central console and dashboard. The seats get contrasting red stitches and it matches the theme of the door pads.
The Hyundai Venue N-Line is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 118 PS and peak torque of 172 Nm. The Venue N-Line only offers a seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).
