In order to garner more sales in this year’s festive season, Hyundai has just launched CNG kits for its popular Grand i10 and Xcent models, which comes with DEDST (Dual ECU Dynamic Sequential Tehcnology). The kit can be installed in all petrol variants of both the vehicles. The Grand i10 and the Xcent are powered by the same 1.2-litre Kappa 2 petrol engine, but power figure has been lowered to 71 PS for the CNG variants. The engine produces 100 Nm of torque and power is sent to the wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The CEV CNG kit is a certified sequential unit specifically tuned for petrol models. Optimal gas flow is provided to the engine through separate injectors, thanks to the dual ECU technology which helps to extract free flowing performance without any lag. In addition, the dual system automatically switches to CNG mode from petrol and vice versa after the vehicle is driven for a couple of kilometers. The car will switch to petrol mode on its own when the CNG gas finishes.

Customers can get their Grand i10 or Xcent fitted with the CNG kits at the company’s authorised service centres or dealerships without voiding the warranty of their car. This can help owners cut down on their fuel bills by a considerable margin as running costs can go down to as much as Rs. 2 per kilometer as the Grand i10 has an ARAI certified fuel economy (CNG) of 24 km/kg.


Standard variants of the hatchback and the compact sedan draw power from a 1.2-litre Kappa 2 petrol engine that produces 82PS of power and 116 Nm of torque. Diesel power comes from a 1.1-litre CRDi mill that produces 71PS of power and 160 Nm of torque. Other than the CNG model, Hyundai also retails the Grand i10 with an LPG variant (mileage of 20.3 km/l) that is driven by a 1.0-litre Kappa petrol motor that puts out 67PS of power and 90 Nm of torque.
