The Grand i10 Nios hatchback and the Aura sedan are part of Hyundai's redesigned i10 family, which was presented in India. Both models gain from visual improvements.
With a wider bumper intake that extends to the flanks and a new pair of DRLs on the side inlets, the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios maintains its grille-less front. Along with a wider bumper intake that joined the side inlets with distinctive DRLs, the Aura also got a slimmer grille between the headlights that resembled the larger HB20S from Latin America. The Grand i10 Nios has an LED strip and new taillight graphics in the rear, while the Aura maintains a largely consistent appearance and keeps its distinguishing spoiler.
New upholstery options and extras like a wireless charging pad, USB-C connections, and a 3.5-inch LCD in the instrument cluster are the only interior improvements. The rear temperature vents and the 8-inch infotainment touchscreen are carryovers from the previous versions.
Both the Grand i10 Nios and the Aura have access to the same 1.2-liter Kappa four-cylinder petrol engine, which is naturally aspirated and makes 82 horsepower and 114 Nm of torque. Another alternative is a 1.2-liter bi-fuel engine that runs on both gasoline and compressed natural gas and generates 95 Nm of torque and 68 horsepower. The front axle receives power through a five-speed manual or automatic transmission; the bi-fuel engine only has a manual transmission. Hyundai abandoned the more potent turbocharged 1.0-liter TGDi petrol engine for the revised models.
Four airbags are standard on the Grand i10 Nios and the Aura, while six airbags are available on higher specification levels. Additionally, they receive keyless entry, ABS, ESC, rear parking sensors, and auto headlights.
In India, the new Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Aura are already available for pre-order. The carmaker did not divulge pricing, but local media speculate that the hatchback will start at Rs $7,339 and the sedan will start at Rs $7,951. The next facelifted Hyundai i10 EU-spec is projected to be more pricey.
