The new Grand i10 facelift will get a grille characterised by its curved flowing line, which will be called Cascading grille, and will become the new identity for future Hyundai models.

It will also get a reworked front bumper and a set of new funky round LED daytime running lights positioned at the top edges of the grille. On the rear, the hatchback will get a beefed up bumper design with thick black inlay and round rear fog lamps complementing the design change in the front. Redesigned side mouldings and newly designed alloy wheels will round off the fresh profile of the new Grand i10.

Inside the cabin, New Grand i10 is expected to get new touchscreen infotainment system compatible to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and navigation. Mechanically, the Grand i10 is likely to remain untouched in the new avatar.
