The Grand i10 makes for a compelling case against its rivals

Verdict – I totally loved the Grand i10 when we had one in our long term fleet and with this update, Hyundai has refreshed the car nicely. The new diesel engine is very good for the segment and even though it still is a 3-cylinder unit, I think it offers very good performance and efficiency. The Grand also has an excellent ride and is pretty easy to drive. The interiors boast of excellent quality materials and even the fit and finish of exterior panels is better than most rivals out there. For me, the Hyundai Grand i10 is easily one of the best city hatchbacks around.

The Grand i10 excels in almost every department

What’s Cool

* An already smart exterior looks even better
* Cabin finally gets a touchscreen and reverse camera
* Diesel engine is highly improved compared to the older one
* Did I say the Grand i10 is super efficient?!

What’s Not So Cool

* Steering is a downer, can be way better
