Default Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Asta (O) 1.2L: My little black hatch

Hi Guys!

I am planning to book Grand i10 Asta for city use. But i came across the battery drain issue.

Is this issue still existing in 2015 models as well.

Kindly advice, Booking the car will be based on your advice.

Hi Somashekar

I have recently booked a Grand i10 - when I checked with the SA on this point particularly, he said this had been rectified long back. Of course, this might not entirely be reliable since he was trying to push for a sale, but it could be true as well since this was a widely reported one.

And promit - congratulations (although about 1.5 years late) Your's and similar threads on the Grand i10 have helped me finalize on the car. Unfortunately for me, the black color is now stopped - if it was available, I would have immediately snapped it up.

No drain issues on my car at all. Mine is a Sportz AT. In fact quite a few times I have forgotten to switch off the cabin light which was on manual mode but no issues next day morning in starting the car. Mine also has dual horns and upgraded 90/100 headlight with DRL. So yeah quite a few loads but no issues.

Thanks Motomaverick,

Glad to know that there are no battery issues.

I have taken the delivery of my Grand i10 Asta white. I have driven about 1000+ kms, as of now all is well. Currently getting a milage of around 12 - 13 kmpl in city with AC on full time.

Congratulations on your new ride. One thing I would like to point out ( I might be wrong) is that you cannot transfer NCB to an existing car but only on a new car. That is my understanding. Please get the same clarified.

Excellent review Promit. Your dad has indeed made a wise decision by not shelling out 70k for a car that uses the same engine (Even though it's better). The 1.2L engine is also much better suited for the i10 rather than the i20 as it has to pull around more weight and the engine feels much happier in the i10. And Hyundai cars in black colour are just too hot. They look great and very Premium. The great engine also ensures that it's a great Cruiser and the nimble size is a good thing for City runs. Congrats again for your i10 buddy and wishing you loads of happy miles in it .

I haven't update this thread since April 2015. So summarising the last 1.5 years of ownership.

Car has covered 18,000 kms in 29 months. Mileage has been 11-12 consistently. Did two small weekend road trips this year. Drove down to Jaipur in March and to Neemrana in July. For the Jaipur trip, I left very early in the morning on a weekday and got an average of 20 km/l. Almost began to think my fuel gauge got spoilt. My car's AC stopped working, was quickly diagnosed as a clogged air filter (I guess it was not replaced/cleaned during the previous service). Renewed my insurance for the third year this April, paid exactly the same amount as the previous year. I have Hyundai slip on seat cover's which I think I will remove. Yet to get an armrest.

The 2 year service which I had done in April at Safdarjang Hyundai was a sad one. The bumper guard (the plastic part which sits on the lip of the front bumper) wasn't in stock. Was promised a call back when they have the part. That call never came. I paid for waxing and there was wax smeared on the side windows. Would have almost paid 3k for synthetic oil vs 1k for regular oil had I not looked at the job card properly. My car drove better before the service than after the service. It was jerking at low speeds. Thankfully, it got okay on its own though. Having alignment, rotation and balancing done from outside every 6 months is well worth the time and effort. Highly recommend it. I do like to clip from time to time. Quite satisfied with the in city performance.

The colour is a bit hard to maintain, but I think it is worth it. Also, since the black colour was discontinued it is quite exclusive in Delhi-Gurgaon.

I have had no issues with the car so far. It is running well. Quite pleased with the car itself. A little disappointed in the service support.

A Creta is going to join my garage later this month. Really looking forward to that.
