The car will be offered with two engine options, a 1.1-litre, three cylinder U2 VGT diesel motor and the familiar 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine with a four-speed automatic as an option. The former engine type will be new to india and is an additional option as compared to current i10 and i20.
Other features adopted in Grand i10 are air conditioner vents for rear passengers, push button start/stop, smart key, rear parking sensors, electric ORVMs with integrated indicators, 2DIN mp3 audio with 1 GB internal memory, steering mounted audio controls, Bluetooth, Aux-in and USB connectivity and glove box cooling.

Hyundai Grand i10 is designed focussing Indian markets and more or less offers all the features required by Indian customers in a economy segment. Since the car sits between existing models, we can say its a close competitor to Maruti Suzuki Swift, Etios Liva, Ford Figo, etc.
