The Grand i10 is one of the most accomplished products from the Hyundai stable for the Indian masses. It comes in a choice of frugal petrol and diesel engines and slots in between the Hyundai i10 and the premium Hyundai Elite i20 hatchback in the company's small car line-up.
Twilight Blue - Hyundai Grand I10
The i10 has been one of the best selling models for Hyundai in the Indian car market but it sells in a segment that witnesses stiff competition from other manufacturers. This is a reason why the i10 sales have taken a hit in the past 2 years. In order to keep the brand alive and kicking, a major revamp was needed and cleverly, Hyundai won't be replacing the i10 any time soon. Instead, they named the new model "Grand i10" and have decided to sell it alongside the current i10.
As the name suggests, this new model is a grander version of the i10 in all parameters. It looks better, has grown up in size, offers more room on the inside and ofcourse adds a new engine in the line-up. This is the new 1.1-litre 3 cylinder diesel motor that promises to deliver best in class fuel economy. It might not offer class leading performance but surely shines when it comes to city usage. Ofcourse the 1.2 petrol motor stays and Hyundai has loaded the Grand i10 with a host of features to give the consumer a grander feel. The Grand i10 will challenge offerings like the Ford Figo on one end and the Maruti Swift on the other. It does come with its own plus points and with Hyundai's strong re-sale value and quality to back it up, the Grand will be a success in the Indian market!
The Grand i10 is a longer car as compared to the regular i10 hatchback and this also means space on the inside is generous. Infact, it beats the Maruti Swift hands down when it comes to passenger space for 5 adults. Likewise, at 256 litres, boot space is also very good.
The Grand i10, like other Hyundai models, comes with high quality interiors. The dual tone color scheme looks nice and the high seating posture is a boon for short drivers, the fair sex and the elderly.
The rear windows are large which adds to the airy feel on the inside. Further rear air-con vents are a segment first and needless to say, will help the rear passengers during Indian summers. Hyundai is also giving a lot of feaures in the Grand i10 and the top end Asta version comes loaded with keyless entry and Smart Start-stop, electrically foldable rear view mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity, integrated audio system with 1 GB of internal memory etc.
The base version, the Era, is also decently loaded with power steering, air-con, front power windows etc.

Pros Great Looks,
Cons Average Performance,
I bought this vehicle 2 months back and already 4 times I took it to the service center. There is some serious issue with the electrical and they have not found out a permenant fix still. I am completely disappointed with the kind of service they provide. I Bought the vehicle from APCO Hyindai and the service engineers are not well trained.The car features are ultimate but you cannot trust this vehicle for a long drive. We got stuck 4 times on raod and still fighing for a permanant fix. When I faced the same issue in the second time, the issue was handled in such a careless way that the Hyundai trained service personals were not even bothered to check the route cause for the fuse to get burnt; instead they believed that the issue would be solved by replacing the fuse. I am stuck at the mid of my way without having any connectivity which is almost 600kms from my home. We two people are staying in a hotel from yesterday without knowing when can we go back with the car..!! Will Hyundai be responsible for our these unexpected expenses
