The Grand i10 is offered with a petrol and diesel engine. Needless to say, the diesel version has contributed to a majority of the sales. Hyundai' second generation 1.1-litre CRDI engine makes 71Ps of power and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 85PS 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine dishes out 85PS and gets both manual and automatic transmission options. Hyundai claims that the diesel engine has a fuel efficiency of 24kmpl while the petrol does 18.9 kilometres on a litre of fuel. There are six and four variants of the Grand i10 petrol and diesel respectively. Of this, the top-end variants command a waiting period of around two months while the base ones are available in a few weeks.
Rakesh Srivastava, senior vice president, sales & marketing- HMIL expressed, "We appreciate and thank our customers for showing strong confidence in brand Hyundai and making Grand a huge success in India. Grand has created a benchmark in quality, features and technology offering higher value proposition in such a short span of time.
