The lukewarm response to this engine maybe due to the fact that the Swift Petrol is not miles behind when it comes to outright performance (i know i am comparing an NA engine to Turbo petrol, but what matters to end user is absolute performance).

So someone with that budget would make a wee bit compromise in performance and settle for the Swift instead.

I'm inclined to agree with this. For the price, the i10 Nios Turbo segment-creeps, and you get very little car in exchange. Two people I'm close to recently purchased new cars. Both took a close look at the Nios Sportz 1.0 Turbo. In Bangalore, the dealer quoted 9.2 lakhs (after discounts) for the Nios. That's a steep price to pay for the snail.

Test-driving the car was great fun, but we just couldn't justify the money. Clearly this car is meant for people who must have a hot hatch above other concerns, and even in that regard, the far superior Polo TSI is right there.

For context, we booked the NA Aura SXO for 9.2 lakhs... the exact same price as the i10 turbo.

I couldn't find any other thread for the grand i10 nios so posting here. Mods please move the post to the appropriate thread.

Can anybody point out what exactly the fuel tank capacity of the grand i10 nios 1.2 is. I tried searching for it but google says it can take upto 37 litres to 60 litres which doesn't make much sense to me.

According to NIOS owners manual, fuel tank capacity is 37 litres.

My cousin has recently purchased a nios. He had it refueled today and it took around 43 litres of petrol. The car already had around 6 litres of petrol so do you think he may be scammed or is it indeed possible that the car can take upto 50 litres of fuel.

I really doubt that a small hatchback would have a ~ 50 L fuel tank. I do not expect the manufacturer to goof up on such a basic specification. We have a Nios at home but haven't refueled her to the brim yet. So not sure if the 50 L claim is correct.

50 litres seems funky. Manufacturer specs state that its capacity is 37 litres, which is the nominal figure. If you assume that the tank's actual capacity is about 15%-20% more than nominal, that works out to roughly 43-45 litres, well below the 50 litre mark.

This is definitely scam. If your cousin has the bill please go back to petrol pump with owner's manual and show them the specification. At least amount for 6L fuel should be reimbursed.

Global NCAP has tested the Grand i10 Nios. It achieved two stars for adult occupant protection and two stars for child occupant protection in Global NCAP’s latest round of SaferCarsForIndia crash test results.

Took a test drive of Nios Turbo as our 2011 i10 Sportz 1.2 was sold off this month. The gearing is too tall and needs downshift to first gear on speed breakers as opposed to older 1.2 which never needed it. The turbo punch is great but fuel efficiency in city would take a hit. Hyundai India is only producing and selling certain trims for certain colours. And all six colours as advertised are not available in all trims. This is a poor marketing gimmick. The turbo is only available in white and teal colours. Similarly they are only offering only certain colours on certain trims. Given the poor NCAP score also test drove the New (Old) Polo 1.0 turbo highline plus and inclined towards buying it.
