Updates and upgrades
The front design of the Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS reminds us of another Hyundai vehicle which was recently discontinued. Nonetheless, the front fascia looks sharp with newer auto projector headlamps, a larger, sharper gloss black grille and a beautiful tri-shaped DRL replacing the fog lamps from its predecessor. The Hyundai batches, too, have transformed into matte-finish logos compared to the chrome before. On the sides, there is nothing much apparent than the larger 15-inch diamond-cut alloys or steel rims compared to the 14-inch on the older i10 NIOS.
The biggest visual update is the inclusion of a rear red-coloured reflector that spans across the boot, giving a faux-connected tail-lamp look to the boot area. The tail lamps, too, are primarily LEDs with similar tri-shaped designs as the DRLs up-front, adding symmetry to the design. Top-end variants also get turn indicators on the ORVMs and chrome door handles with a request sensor. Overall, the updates seem meaningful, and that is a welcome addition.
