The Hyundai Grand i10 has been introduced to South Africa. After the discontinuing of the Getz, Hyundai plans to fill the gap with this little hatchback. Fitting between to smaller i10 and the i20, the all-new Grand i10 hopes to appeal to urban buyers looking for something practical and affordable.
Designed in Europe, the Grand i10 will already be accustomed to comfortably slipping through smaller gaps in the city. The compact nature of the Grand i10 does not continue in the interior, though. It has one of the most spacious occupant cabins on the market, as well as 256 litres of boot space.
It is offered in three engine derivatives; the 1.25 Motion manual, the 1.25 Fluid manual and the 1.25 Fluid with a four-speed automatic gearbox. Each engine delivers 64 kW of power and 120 Nm of torque. It’s also light on petrol with a claimed 5.9 l/100km for the manual derivatives and 6.9l/100km for the automatic.
The new Hyundai Grand i10 will also come with Bluetooth, keyless entry and electrically heated seats as standard. USB and AUX ports for the sound system, an air conditioner and central locking will also be thrown into the standard kit.
The Grand i10 1.25 Motion manual derivative will retail at R139 900, the 1.25 Fluid manual at R149 900 and the 1.25 Fluid automatic at R159 900. The red interior option with a leather cloth combination would add R5 000 to the price. A service plan is also an optional item.
