Hyundai sells over 1 lakh units of Grand i10 in FY 2016-17

The Hyundai Grand i10 has always been a popular choice in the hatchback segment. Supporting claims, the automaker has reportedly sold 107,811 units between April-December 2016 as against 97,805 units in the same period in 2015. The figures clearly indicate that the Grand i10 from Hyundai has been a crucial contributor to Hyundai collaboratively selling 5 lakh units in the country in 2016. This has helped the automaker register a 5.2 per cent growth in the Indian market.

Reports further go on to indicate that in the ongoing financial year, the Hyundai Grand i10 sales averages close to 11,979 units and has thereby helped the brand increase its market share to 22 per cent. With three more months to go in the current fiscal year, the numbers are likely to see an increase. The hatchback claimed the fifth position in terms of sales in the country in 2016.

In the coming months, Hyundai will be launching a facelift version of the Grand i10 in the country which will continue to keep potential customers interested in the product. The new model will get fresh cosmetic and feature upgrades, while mechanically it will continue to be powered by 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine and 1.1-litre three cylinder U2 VGT diesel engine which produces 82bhp of power and 70bhp of power respectively. The new model is expected to get revised upholstery, new instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment system in the top-spec version.
