Hyundai Motor India took wraps off the Grand i10 Nios Facelift a few days ago in India and also started its booking at Rs 11,000. Interested customers have the option of booking the four-wheeler at a local Hyundai dealership or online at the official website. Now, the carmaker is gearing up to finally launch the much-speculated vehicle into our market on January 20. The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Facelift will reportedly exhibit new features and exterior improvements. The facelifted version's front fascia has been altered, and it now features a larger grille with LED DRLs on either side. This hatchback is most likely to come with 15-inch alloy wheels and LED taillamps with a connecting bar. On the outside, the facelift model will boast six single-tone exterior colour options including Polar White, Titan Grey, Typhoon Silver, Spark Green (New), Teal Blue, and Fiery Red. Up to six airbags, cruise control, TPMS, and several other features will be found in the model.
From the inside, the facelift model hasn't seen much modification besides the addition of an analogue instrument cluster with a MID. The upgraded model will be offered with a 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 82bhp and 113Nm. The engine comes with both a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle will also have a 1.2-litre CNG-powered bi-fuel petrol engine that can produce a power output of 68bhp and 95Nm of peak torque. It will have a 5-speed manual transmission. The facelifted model of the Grand i10 Nios will lock horns with vehicles such as the Tata Tiago, the Maruti Suzuki Swift, and many others in India.
At the ongoing Auto Expo 2023, Hyundai Motor India unveiled the new Ioniq 6 EV in India. The Hyundai Ioniq 6 was launched in June 2022 and is the company's third electric four-wheeler produced globally, following the Kona EV and the Ioniq 5. It is based on the E-GMP architecture of the brand. Hyundai asserts that the EV will consume less than 14kWh per 100 kilometres. The Ioniq 6 can go up to 610 kilometres on a single charge thanks to the single-motor setup and the larger 77.4kWh battery.
