South Korean auto major Hyundai has started testing the Grand i10 facelift on Indian roads ahead of its launch in the country. The Grand i10 facelift is expected to be launched in India in 2017.

Hyundai has revealed the Grand i10 facelift, which is known as i10 in the European market, earlier in August. The India-spec version of the i10 is also expected to get design upgrades in line with the Euro-spec.

The latest images of the Grand i10 facelift comes from Rushlane, which shows a partly camouflaged prototype of the model. The images also give a sneak peek into the cabin of the hatchback. In the new avatar, while the Grand i10 will remain untouched in its overall design, there will be changes at the front and rear end. It is expected to get reworked front bumper with LED daytime running lights and front-grille.

Inside the cabin too, the facelifted Grand i10 could get feature updates, including a new touchscreen infotainment system. The Euro-spec model of the Grand i10 gets new seven-inch touch screen system featuring Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and navigation.

Mechanically, the Grand i10 is likely to remain untouched in the new avatar. Currently, Hyundai Grand i10 petrol variant is powered by a 1.2-litre Kappa engine that can churn out 82bhp and 116 Nm. The diesel model of the vehicle houses a 1.1-litre three cylinder U2 VGT motor engine that delivers 70bhp power and 163 Nm of torque.
