Hyundai’s Grand i10 is a popular vehicle in South Africa that offers affordable mobility for the budget-orientated buyer. The Grand i10 has now been updated with revised specification as well as the addition of a new entry-level model.Hyundai has rejuvenated its Grand i10 range in South Africa with new features and added a new entry derivative to give this popular entry-level model a fresh appeal in the local automotive market.
“We had a relook at the Grand i10 range, change the specification levels and added a new entry derivative with a 1-litre engine and the Motion specification level. The end result is a hatchback model with a variety of derivatives that offer exceptional value,” says Stanley Anderson, sales and operations director of Hyundai Automotive South Africa.
Customers have the option to buy an SD memory card for R2 500 to activate the navigation system on the infotainment system in the derivatives with the Fluid and Glide specification level.
The Grand i10 Motion derivative is offered with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission while the Grand i10 Fluid is equipped with a 5-speed automatic transmission. These 3 derivatives are powered by a new 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine with 48 kW and 94 Nm of torque. Fuel consumption for this engine is rated at 5.4 L/100 km (manual) or 5.9 L/100 km (automatic).
The revised line-up of this smallest hatchback in the Hyundai range consists of six derivatives –three powered by the new 1-litre 3-cylinder engine delivering 48 kW at 5 500 r/min and 94 Nm maximum torque at 3 500 r/min.; and the other three using the 1.25-litre 4-cylinder engine which delivers 64 kW at 6 000 r/min. and 120 Nm maximum torque at 4 000 r/min.
