South Korean automaker Hyundai is likely to launch the Grand i10 facelift in India by the end of February this year. According to various unconfirmed reports, the facelifted model will now be called the Grand i10 Prime.
According to an exclusive report on Motor Octane, Hyundai has already sold its vehicles with the ‘Prime’ suffix for its various facelifted models across various geographies. Earlier, Hyundai named the facelifted version of Hyundai Atos (sold as Santro in India) and Hyundai Getz with the suffix ‘Prime’.
The 2017 facelifted version of Grand i10 is likely to sport some cosmetic changes that could include a slight change at the front fascia, wider grille with DRLs, boomerang shaped fog lamp enclosures and a new bumper. The rear profile is likely to feature new tail lights and a new bumper with a broad black insert. Hyundai is likely to retain its cabin layout, however, the facelifted model is likely to get a new touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and adjustable rear headrests.
The 2017 Grand i10 Prime will continue being powered by the two engine options, namely, a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.1-litre diesel that continue doing their duty under the hood of the existing model.
