The substantially updated Hyundai Grand i10 has launched in South Africa. Here are detailed specifications and pricing for the new budget segment offering.
The Hyundai Grand i10 has been a popular model in the budget segment. The 2nd-generation model sold almost 50 000 units in South Africa between 2014-2020 and the vehicle was the third best-seller in the segment behind the Volkswagen Polo Vivo and the Renault Kwid.
The third-generation model has changed considerably when compared to the outgoing Hyundai Grand i10. The vehicle has physically grown, with the newer model being longer and wider at the slight expense of height. Critically, the wheelbase and boot space have been increased - both important factors in the budget car segment.
