Looks very well designed for a small hatchback. Got all the fluidic elements and still looks very proportionate. The centre console somehow reminds of the, now extinct, Philips boombox!

Hyundai's got the pricing right on this one. Won't be surprised if the sales numbers for the Grand i10 surpasses the i10/i20 anytime soon.

Neat and clean design, way head of i10 in the looks department and somewhat similar to i20. If hyundai could have scrapped the current i10 and replaced it with i10 grand with a bit more competitive pricing, they surely would have had an absolute winner. I personally don't like them selling older versions like santro, accent and i10 along side the fluidic beauties like i10 grand, verna, i29 etc. Instead of keeping the old models, hyundai could have reduced the pricing of new ones to position it slightly above the old ones and scrapped the older ones. i10 grand looks great from all angles and I would look forward to see ownership reports on the 1.1 hyundai diesel.

Does it come with 60:40 rear seat ? Considering the luggage space in hatch this is a must have feature.

From the images that @.anshuman has posted yesterday, there don't appear to be split seats at the rear. But, I guess a 256 Liter boot is more than sufficient for a nuclear family, even if you pack (sensibly) for attending a marriage function.

On our case, the Santro's 218 Liter boot has been adequate for a family of 4 - father, mother & we 2 brothers (in 20s) for few marriages (our 1st cousins) we attended in last decade, with the functions stretching over a week. Couple of small (hand) bags were placed on the rear tray though.

In the Asta Version, the Airbags and Abs are shown as optional. then how does it make Asta Version any different than the Sports version. Also any idea what would be the cost of Optional Airbags and ABS.

I am keen on upgrading from my i10 and have quite liked the Grand. Might go for test drive asap.

Probably from the view that the target segment of couple with kid this might be adequate for regular use. But certain at times owners will miss that feature.

I really like the versatility of 60:40 rear seat. A 220 L <= Boot probably take just one international size suitcase and rest of the luggage either will be on seat /roof carrier or another car. But split the seat and more then enough space is there with comfortable room for an average size adult in the rear.

I dint like the exteriors much. Its very plain. IMHO, the first generation i10 was a good looking one. Its a viewers perspective though. I like A-Star for that matter which doesnt appeal to many.
Eagerly awaiting the new model to compete with the i10 from MSIL stable.

I have recommended the car (Sport Diesel) to a colleague of mine, who was planning to but the Figo Diesel ZXI. My rationale being marginally powerful engine, much better interiors & peace of mind with Hyundai A.S.S. (also engine is derived from the 1.5L diesel mill on old Verna, which was a hoot to drive, yet reliable & frugal).

With the Figo, he will get better handling & bigger boot, but, IMO Figo won't sell as many numbers as the i10 Grand.

Hopefully my stand should be vindicated over time.

Any interior pics? Hyundai claims the cabin to be bigger than the 'old' i10, but I could not find any pics, especially of the rear seats.

Was just going through the eBrochure on the Hyundai website and noticed a few weird things.

The Sportz variant does not have a rear wiper or a rear defogger which I find quite shocking. Also, airbags and ABS are both optional even on the Asta which is another major shock!

I feel that these features on the variants mentioned above should be there as standard features.

P.S: 300th post, yay!

Drove one! the 1.1lit Diesel Asta. Costs 7.3OTR at Trivandrum.
Checkout how silent the engine is!

Will post more later.

Any news on the price of Asta (O) variant with all the safety features included? Also, is the 1.2L K series engine expected to deliver economy of around 15kmpl or will it end up giving around 12 like its predecessor? Has the engine been tuned for efficiency?

Visually, it certainly shakes less than its 3-pot rival...the Beat diesel. Cabin noise however is a function of the insulation etc
