About Hyundai Grand i10 Nios

The Nios upped its game as it launched Grand i10’s by improving on its practicality, comfort and feature quotient. It also added that extra zing with its premiumness and individuality.The Grand would surely be appreciated by each and every family members and be disliked by none. The Grand Nios is available with the same 1.2 litre petrol and diesel engines that we have seen earlier on the Grand i10. But, the petrol engine has been tweaked to make it BS6-compliant while the diesel is now BS6-ready. However, these engines generate the same power and torque as before. On the upside Hyundai claims better fuel efficiency, which might be a result of the weight saving, of somewhere around 30kg. Hyundai is also offering automatic transmissions on the diesel and petrol engines, although this uses AMT technology not the conventional torque converters. In the 2000-3500 rpm range the diesel engine pulls strongly, with power keeps trailing off near the 4000rpm mark. So it cruises smoothly at around 100kph. With all the specifications provided you can select which one would be the best suited for you.
