The Hyundai Grand i10 has recently achieved the status of becoming the fastest selling car in the country by recording sale of 1 lakh units within 10 months since it’s launch. The Grand i10 makes a good buy, thanks to it’s lengthy equipment list and well priced nature. Now, backed by it’s success, Hyundai has launched an LPG fuel compatible version of the Grand i10 that has been priced at Rs. 4.93 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
However, the Hyundai Grand i10 LPG is far from a mere fuel variant launch as the car is fitted with a different petrol engine altogether. The engine in question is the 1.0 litre engine that made it’s debut in the Hyundai Eon 1.0 litre. In the Grand i10 LPG, the 1.0 litre, three cylinder petrol engine develops 69PS of power @ 6,200 rpm and 92Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm when it runs on petrol, and 67PS of power @ 6,200 rpm and 90Nm of power @ 3,500 rpm when it is fueled by LPG. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The car has a fuel tank of 34 litres in capacity.
The Hyundai Grand i10 LPG has been launched in Magna trim and will be only available in the single variant. It comes equipped with manual air conditioning, central locking, interior day/night mirror, front fog lamps, black steel rims with wheel caps, driver information display, power steering, power windows all around, front and rear power outlets in the cabin, electric ORVMs, a vanity mirror on the left sun visor and a parcel tray.
The introduction of the Hyundai Grand i10 LPG will appeal to a new set of customers. That said, the prospect of launching more variants of the Grand i10 with the smaller 1.0 litre petrol engine does have the potential of lowering the entry price point of the Hyundai Grand 10. At the moment, the Hyundai Grand i10 is priced in the range of Rs. 4.33 lakh to Rs. 6.35 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
