Hyundai PH announces availability, specs and price list of Grand i10

 

Hyundai Grand i10

Remember the introduction of the second-generation Hyundai i10 which we reported back in August last year? Well, that car was primarily designed and targeted at European markets. If you're wondering if Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. will bring it in, the answer is both yes and no.

Today, HARI announced the arrival of the Grand i10, which is essentially the second-gen i10 but whose wheelbase is 100mm longer than the standard i10. The Philippine-market units are available with two gasoline engines: a 1.0-liter, 65hp unit and a 1.2-liter, 86hp mill. These engines are mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic gearbox.

These are the five variants and their introductory prices (yes, expect these to eventually go up soon):

* Grand i10 1.0 E 5MT - P518,000

* Grand i10 1.0 S 5MT - P558,000

* Grand i10 1.0 S 4AT - P588,000

* Grand i10 1.0 L 4AT - P658,000

* Grand i10 1.2 L 4AT - P688,000

Of course, because this car is aimed at a very young demographic, it is being offered with 10 vibrant body colors: Red Passion, Golden Orange, Aqua Blue, Wine Red, Twilight Blue, Star Dust, Silky Beige, Sleek Silver, Pure White and Phantom Black.

If you want to see this new car in the metal, HARI will be touring it around malls starting this weekend. Check out the schedule:

* Robinsons Galleria - February 15-24

    Looks great! The price is okay, above the Eon. Hope the features match the pricetag. :)

    Whuuuut?! P688k for the TOTL?! Seriously?!
    • codenamejanrei 6 months ago
      This is Grand i10, it's different from the regular i10. Both have diifferent sides and rear and the Grand i10 is a bit bigger.

    No 1.2L MT?
  • dragun 5 months ago
    What, no 1.2 manual?!?

    Ayaw talaga ma-compromise yung postion ng Accent nila. haynaku

    Well, basically the Getz reborn. That's not so bad.

    This news is quite surprising... the Grand i10 turns outbto be pricey... Hyundai was too confident with it, they never bothered looking at the competition.... hello?! The TOTL Mirage GLS CVT is just P638k!!! And its CVT!!! Your 4AT is nothing to a CVT especially on fuel efficiency, Hyundai.

      Mirage GLX M/T undercuts the base Grand i10 by P15k (for now). This will be eaten alive unless they have a diesel engine option.
    • ronallandottk 5 months ago
      I agree it seems a bit pricey...considering the old TOTL 1.2 AT i10 costs less than 600K (with one airbag and no ABS). On the other hand, the Grand i10's 4 cylinder engine has more power and torque than the Mirage's 3 cylinder. While a CVT is indeed more fuel efficient than a conventional AT, conventional AT's typically are more responsive and perceived to be more reliable in the long run than CVTs...though that's still up for debate. We'll get a better picture if the TOTL Grand i10 is worth the premium once the full spec sheets come out.

    may glove box chiller, LCD touchscreen with DVD playback, GPS at Bluetooth daw ang totl.

    Hundai upsized the body and weakened the engine of the base and midrange model of the grand i10. The 1.2L is an automatic that is priced a bit high. I'm not sure if this will sell well in the philippines.

    Sleeker than the Wigo. But the price is just way high.
  • chuasean 5 months ago
    Medyo mahal..shall wigo... hehe
  • jan_elmer 5 months ago
    It seems that Hyundai is reserving the 1.2 MT for the sedan version which they call Xcent in India. I will be looking forward to this variant.

    There is no ABS and rear aircon vents for the Philippine version of the Grand i10 is that right?
  • RendCycle 3 months ago
    It's sad that this car has won numerous awards in other countries but we can't say the same for the models that was released here in the Philippines. The versions released locally are missing some excellent features which helped made this car award-winning in the first place. I feel Hyundai Philippines desecrated the Grand i10 and they are selling it more expensive than their competitors which car has more features.
