I personally feel it was also the sales associate who pushed my booking to get it sooner from the factory. I don't know but he told me he didn't want me to wait more as I told him that previously I waited for 3+ months for Spresso delivery and my experience with Maruti wasn't great in terms of timelines.

I booked my Nios on I think 31-Jan-2022 and I got it in my hand on 18-Mar-2022 (car was dispatched from factory on 07th March and reached stockyard on 12th March).

Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios 1.0L Turbo Petrol : Official Review

I enquired this week with a couple of dealers in Pune regarding the availability of the Nios1.0 Turbo. One dealer said that the production has stopped, while another one said its made to order only.

Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios 1.0L Turbo Petrol : Official Review

5 Month Update - 3000 kms

1. The Car is a breath of fresh air. Driving it on open roads is a hoot. It felt overpowered before, but now it seems - this is perfect for this car.

2. It hates being confined to the city. It hates the speed breakers and pottering around the city at low speeds. The small size is a boon to park and drive in the streets of Pune.

3. Suspension setup is a bit weird - it is sporty-stiff in some cases and becomes extremely spongy on loading. Might try and add a spring buffer in the future - it helps in some vehicles from what I have heard.

4. As my early review, massively under-tired and hard Goodyears. Bad for the ride, but luckily no damage on Pune's atrocious roads.

5. All in all I don't miss My Swift - except maybe for the 7000rpm redline (which I never touched TBH )

6. First Service was carried out in March. Terrible washing. Only parameters were checked and noted down. Car was returned - No charge.

7. Do Note: These GDi's do need the XP95 diet. You can feel the difference.

9. The Aqua Teal green is hard to maintain and an extremely common colour.

10. I have attached a few pictures below of the car and a trip to Tamhini - Alibaug recently.

@fhdowntheline That's how the Hyundai dealers are - They don't want to sell the Turbo. Rather they would not sell you anything that is not in demand. You need to be patient with them. I had almost dropped my plans for the Turbo. I purchased mine from Garve Hyundai, Wakad, Pune. If you need to see the car - experience it, its no point going to the dealers. Drop me a DM - You can come over and have a look at the car. You can ask for Sachin Bhamare at the dealership, to find out about availabilities.

Turbo is no longer listed in the Prices page of Hyundai India. It is still there in the car details page and the brochure though.

Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios 1.0L Turbo Petrol : Official Review

Hello BHP ians,

I recently purchased a i10 Nios and the first service is due now.

Does Hyundai provide free pick up and drop for the first service? I am told by them to pay INR 350 as charges for P&D.

Is this ok? I had the idea that if the customer requests; they provide it without additional charge?

Hope to get your responses. I am in Durgapur, WB.

Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios 1.0L Turbo Petrol : Official Review

I am planning on getting the Turbo Nios this december and as has been evidently made clear by the official review and ownership reviews - the car is under-tired. So, what size should I upsize to ?
Stock size = 175/60/R15 on 5.5J alloys and I don't want to change the factory alloys.

I have following queries-
1. Would 195mm tread be fine on 5.5J alloys ? (I read a few manuals and OEMs seem to use 6J alloys for 195mm)
2. A youtuber had upgraded to 195/55/R15 tyres on his OG Grand i10 (not Nios and aftermarket R15 Alloys), but they fouled with the wheel well and he had to revert to 195/50/R15. Would this change to lower profile drastically impact the suspension behaviour ?
3. What TBhpians think should be the perfect upsize prioritizing the handling but not abandoning the comfort aspect.
4. What brand/Model should I choose from ?

Thanks

1. I think 195mm is the highest width 5.5J alloy can accommodate and should be fine, however 175-185mm would be ideal width.
2. OG Grand i10 had stock tyres of 165/65/R14 and upgrading it to 195/55/R15 would give a difference of around 4.5% interfering with wheel well. I myself had upgraded to 185/60/R14 and was very happy with the high speed stability and comfort, as long as the difference in circumference is less than 1.5-2% it should be fine.
You can check and calculate the difference herehttp://tyrestore.in/upsizing.htm

195/55/R14 should be fine as difference is less than 1%, however 55mm sidewall would also lead to slightly stiff ride on rough patches but highway rides would be better.

Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios 1.0L Turbo Petrol : Official Review

I think 185/60 R15 should be a good size. The extra profile will work out better for ride comfort! To be honest have not upgraded my tyres yet, because of Shield of trust. Will do it in the next cycle. Brandwise - Yokohama Earth if you want a great VFM and warranty. if you a re ok with relatively lesser warranty but a premium option aprroximately at the same price - Vredestiens make a good case.

195s will look great and will perform well. But, I am not sure about the wheel wells as you mentioned

Quick Update: Car is doing well. Rear suspension is quite bouncy.

A few OEM upgrades i would like to carry out. Any help for the same will be appreciated:
1) Apparently, the OEM Aura Cruise control can be retrofitted in the NIOS. But, need to find out how i can source and get it fitted. Its quite cheap also - I believe.
2) Planning to get the noise insulator for the diesel in my Turbo. 3 cylinders are quite noisy in cold weather.

Cheers!

Yup, I went ahead with the 185/60 Continental CC6s.
Though a mileage oriented tyre, I feel it's much better than the MRF Ecotreads. Especially the ride feels much supple and car rides with much heft now.

The best sizes to upgrade are -
1. R15 185/55 (standard with i10 in the US)
2. R15 195/50
3. R15 185/60 (the only other option/best ride)
3. R16 195/45 (standard with i10 n line)

On paper 195/55 is the best upgrade but it could have touched the underside of wheel-arches under full load and w.r.t to 195/50s, I didn't wanted to go with such low profile yet, might aswell enjoy the ride for a couple of years . But, I'm certain my next set would be 195/50s.
Also, 185/55s would be best of both worlds, but good luck getting this size in the market.

I too have the SOT, but it doesn't cover any suspension related item so I think it's pretty safe to upgrade.

Thanks for the info! Please drop a small review about your experience with the turbo.

I was worried about the wheel bearing replacement covered under the SOT. But, after my first service and the number of cars at the service station I don't even think they will notice the difference

Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios 1.0L Turbo Petrol : Official Review

Just went for the Service of my Nios Turbo today. Will post a service update soon

Just FYI, Garve Hyundai Wakad has 'one' White 2022 Turbo Gdi immediately available with 70k discount on a 9.6L price tag.

Re: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios 1.0L Turbo Petrol : Official Review

I am facing an issue while upshifting from 1 to 2 while redlining i.e, it feels like the gear lever gets stuck/resists shifting to 2nd gear if the revs are high and only when I lose the revs/wait out a sec or so, the gear gets engaged.By then the momentum is lost. Otherwise, low revs shifting is fine and even shifting from 2 to 3 at high revs is smooth.
What could be the issue ?
Car has run ~1500kms and I didn't get it checked at the first service as I thought it would smoothen out but now it has started playing spoilsport for my toll plaza launches

2. R15 195/50
3. R15 185/60 (the only other option/best ride)
3. R16 195/45 (standard with i10 n line)(stock 6.5J alloys)

The stock R15 alloys are 5.5J which are appropriate for widths upto 185mm only (Not 195 because of the comparatively lower profile options).
On stock alloys the widest you can go is 185mm.
Even the 5.5J alloys with 185 cross section will lead to a potential loss of contact patch as a wider rim would have pushed the tyre edges better.
So, if you upgrade to 195mm, change of alloys is a must, preferably to 6.5Js.

Would you consider posting a photo or two of the tyres on your car? Does it touch/brush against the wheelwell? How has your experience been after using them?

I just got the 1.2na Asta AMT and I've been thinking if I should upsize the tyres to the Yoko Earth's 185/60 on the stock rim.
