Hyundai Grand i10 and Xcent CNG variants launched in India
Hyundai India has added CNG variants to its Grand i10 hatchback and the Xcent which is a compact sedan. The customer has to pay Rs 65,000 extra for these kits in addition to the on-road price of the petrol trim that you choose to spec. The CNG-equipped cars get a Dual ECU Dynamic Sequential Technology (DEDST) CNG kit with separate injectors. These injectors, according to the company send optimum gas flow to the engine helping maintain adequate power and offering decent performance at all the time. The DEDST CNG kit fitted models will be covered under company's two year unlimited kilometres warranty.
Expect a minimal drop in the performance of the 1.2-litre Kappa 2 petrol engine when equipped with this CNG kit. Currently, in the Grand i10 and Xcent, the engine makes 83PS of power and 114Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual. Note that the automatic trims don't get the option of CNG. The Hyundai Grand i10 already had a LPG variant in its portfolio but due to lack of demand, it has now been discontinued.
Hyundai is also providing discount schemes on the Grand i10 and Xcent range this Diwali. It starts with Rs 40,000 and goes up to Rs 51,000 for both the cars.
