Hyundai Grand i10 awaiting launch

The Indian small car space appears to be getting over-crowded. The South Korean automobile major, Hyundai Motors,  which drove this market and is a leader in this segment has now plans to launch a new Hyundai Grand i10, following the spectacular success of its i10. The company will continue to sell i10 and will position Grand i10 above the normal i10 but below i20.

Automobile expert Hormazd Sorabjee says the Grand i10 is certainly conservative by Hyundai’s standard of design as many of the prominent creases and cuts that normally characterise the company’s fluidic design language are absent.

Hyundai proposes to put up the Grand i10 at four levels – The Magna, The Sportz, Asta and Asta(O). Positioning the Grand i10 is going to be a very tricky proposition for Hyundai as it has to sell between the i10 and i20.

The guess is that it will be priced at Rs 4 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs 5 lakh for the diesel version. The Hyundai Grand i10 goes on sale in the first week of September this year.
