How to price the i10 sensibly?
lets look at this option like the verna-accent, fiesta-ikon way.
Just retain one version of the santro with PS and AC as standard options and price it aggressively.
Like this hyundai has good price bracket to place the i10 both the petrol and diesel variants.

just my 2 cents.

Hi,

I heard that the small car diesel originally planned for india was to be placed in the Santro. Guess the i10's success has changed that line of thought. The engine is talked to be a three cylinder 70 bph crdi. Given the build quality of the i10, and a 50k price difference to the swift (lower :-) ) Hyundai should have a winner on their hand.

I feel it should compete with splash diesel rather than swift.I feel swift would be in a different league compared to the i10.And the information is splash to come out with the 1.3 engine and if i10 is out with a 1.1 splash is a winner here.

Default i10 diesel

We surely cannot compare an i10 to Swift. they are miles apart in terms of comfort and driveability. I have driven an i10 with the stock tyres and believe me.. it understeers all the time above 50kmph. thats not the case with the swift. moreover the i10 has a dikky smaller than a Santro..the splash will come out with a dikky bigger or atleast same as that of a Wagon R. moreover the diesel heart on the swift is the latest of the block and a rocket

I guess its actually not fair comparing swifts to the i10s.I personally think both vehicles are quite definite.Older swifts have reported high detioration in build quality. Also the i10 though a bit underpowered offers you comfort & stuff way ahead of others in its ilk.I dont know what tyres others have on their i10 but mine are tubeless Bridgestone & i have not found understeer above 50 kph.

As far as the i10 diesel ,Hyundai is about to begin exports.They may not introduce it in India till around Q2 end.

Unbelievable! No reputed car manufacturer can afford to do this! You better check your car, it might be an isolated case! For your info, i10 is nothing but Kia Picanto which I have seen driving past me in 100+kph easily in highways. Pls check your tyres with a reputed mechanic/workshop and then post these kind of messages.


Btw, i10 is a hatch and Swift is a mature hatch in the leagues of Getz et all. No point in comparing both, M2C.

The new Indica with 1.4 MJD Fiat diesel engine would be the greatest threat to i10 Diesel if not priced properly. 1.4 MJD is gem of an engine and roominess of Indica is well known. History suggest that Hyundai has never been able to play pricing cards properly. However the only favorable point for i10 would be its build quality.

Default Snap

Engine snap seems to be of the Kia Picanto and not the i10

Do you mean 1.3 MJD? IIRC the 1.4 CRDI/DICOR is a Tata engine.

What he is saying is that Kia Picanto = Hyundai i10 so that could be the engine coming to the i10 Diesel.

We seriously can't be sure, what they will bring next?
Verna Diesel - Nobody knew if this beast can eat up any car on the road in it's segment.
Getz CRDi - Plocked in Verna's Engine with better gear ratios than verna.
Now time for Hyundai i10 what's next?
Will it be a killer like Verna or Getz D with 4 cyl VGT? or 3cyl like Accent CRDi?

How about a Smaller ver. of VGT in i10?
Will it be a Head to Head 1.2L VGT vs 1.3L MJD or what?
