Rumour: Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS Asta AMT discontinued

Going forward, the Grand i10 NIOS AMT is expected to be offere in two trims - Magna and Sportz.

Hyundai has reportedly discontinued the top-spec Asta AMT variant of the Grand i10 NIOS. It is said that dealers have stopped taking bookings for the same, although, the variant is still listed on the brand’s official website.

Going forward, the Grand i10 NIOS equipped with the automated manual transmission (AMT) will be available in two trims – Magna and Sportz. The car is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that puts out 82 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 114 Nm @ 4,000 rpm.

It is said that Hyundai has decided to discontinue the Asta AMT variant in preparation for the launch of the Grand i10 NIOS facelift, which is expected to arrive in the first half of next year.

The Grand i10 NIOS facelift is likely to get a few cosmetic changes on the outside. Higher variants could get dual-tone exterior colour options and features like projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights and dual-tone alloy wheels. The current 1.2-litre petrol and 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engines are likely to be carried over unchanged.
