Hyundai India Considering i10 Diesel Launch


Just last month we spoke about the i10 diesel not being launched in this generation i10 here, but now reports seems to suggest otherwise. Coming under great threat from the Ford Figo, Hyundai seems to be reconsidering launching a diesel powered i10. Earlier the company was only worried about the Nissan Micra but the launch of the Figo and the new Maruti WagonR has made the company think thrice. A Hyundai spokesperson has hinted on a diesel engine for the i10 being in the pipe line but no date has been mentioned. We can only wait but looking at the way Ford has aggressively priced the Figo diesel, Hyundai will need to work really hard on cost reduction to ensure they can still catch the ‘i‘.

    In the price range, i10 is already the best choice among buyers who appreciate quality and reliability. If they launch i10 with 1.2L diesel with their latest diesel technology of minimum turbo lag and price it well, it will be a hit with buyers.

      Amit but they are importing engines from South Korea which won’t lead to competitive pricing.
