Having sold over 1.1 lakh units of the hatchback since its introduction a year ago, Hyundai are now bringing out a new edition of the Grand i10. Christened the SportZ Edition, this variant gets a few changes that are expected to lend the car a sportier feel, in keeping with the name.
14-inch diamond-cut alloys, a blacked-out B-pillar and a rear spoiler distinguish it from the regular trims on the road. The interiors have been given a red theme and come upholstered in fabric while the steering wheel comes wrapped in leather with audio and Bluetooth controls mounted on top.
The mills running it remain the same as the regular Grand i10's. The 1.2-litre Kappa powered petrol variant comes at Rs 5.11 lakh while its U2 1.1-litre CRDi run diesel counterpart retails at Rs 5.98 lakh. All prices listed here are ex-Delhi.
