Hyundai compact sedan (Grand i10 based) coming soon to India in next year first. Latest news suggest that Hyundai will unveil the sedan on 4th of February 2014, globally. This cool sub- four-metre sedan need to face tough competition with the Honda Amaze and Maruti Dzire. It will be available for around Rs. 5 lakh onward in Indian ex showrooms.
In terms of external look and dimensions the Sedan may share many features in similar to the Grand i10 Hatchback. The i10 sedan may have larger wheel base and length than the Hatchback with newly designed bumper. The sedan version of Grand i10 will be made in petrol and diesel engine options.
Powering this compact Grand i10 sedan will be a 1.2 litre Kappa petrol motor or another chance for all-new three-cylinder 1.1-litre VGT ‘U2’ diesel engine too. The petrol engine offers power output of 82bhp and 114Nm of torque on ride another diesel mill may churns out 70bhp power and 160Nm torque on ride.
If they used a 1.1 diesel engine there will be not much satisfactory performance for a sedan. You can also hope for the engine 1.4, four-cylinder diesel motor which is currently using in i20 models. The question is that weather Hyundai can repeat the success as Grand i10 hatchback for the Grand i10 sedan also?
