As you can derive from the table, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios comes with four engine options. The diesel is a 1.2-litre unit producing 73 bhp and 190 Nm of torque. It is a fairly punchy engine to drive and has good city and highway driving qualities. Being a diesel, it will return a decent fuel economy as well. There are two petrol engines, a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated unit which produces 82 bhp and 113 Nm of torque and 1.0-litre turbo petrol unity which churns out 98 bhp and 171 Nm of torque. The naturally aspirated motor is very refined and smooth but might feel a bit dull when compared to other engines on offer and the turbo motor is a fun to drive engine with superb driving dynamics. However, both these engines are not frugal and if fuel economy is your priority, then opting for the CNG would be the correct choice.

The price list for the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios is pretty extensive considering the number of variants and engine options on offer. However, the prices are a bit on the higher side when compared to the rivals but the extensive list ensures a variant for every buyer. The diesel variants are on the higher side and some of the variants do not offer a diesel engine option. Considering the changes in trend, Hyundai soon might have to discontinue the diesel engine and stick to petrol and CNG.

Considering the price bracket and the rivals, Hyundai has not offered ample safety kit for the Grand i10 Nios. It misses out on ISOFIX child seat mounts which is not available in any variant, automatic headlamps and follow me home headlamps. These are some of the features which could have been included in the variants. Hyundai should keep in mind these small details and work towards them to provide the customer with a great offering so that consumers do not prefer other automakers.

Hyundai has done a great job in equipping the Grand i10 Nios with comfort and convenience features to increase the pleasantness inside the cabin. Even the lower variants get sufficient features to enjoy the experience at a lower price, however, the base variant misses out on everything including rear AC vents and adjustable steering. Moreover, there is no cruise control on offer in any variant which is disappointing as the rivals offer it in the segment.

Hyundai also offers connected car-tech which makes the experience more immersive for consumers and is an added feature that pulls customers towards the product.

Conclusion

Hyundai Grand i10 Nios is a hatchback for the Indian car market. It comes with four engine options and all four have different characteristics. If you want a frugal option, then the diesel and CNG are your picks and if you want a fun to drive vehicle, then the turbo petrol is the variant to opt for. All the engines perform well and apart from the CNG, none of them feels underpowered at any given point. There are sufficient safety features, along with connectivity and convenience features. Considering everything, the most value for money variants are Sportz and Sportz AMT (diesel or petrol). For the people who want to opt for the turbo petrol, you only have one option.
