The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios will get a sedan version as well, as the South Korean carmaker is testing the car already. It will most likely be the new generation Xcent, unless Hyundai plans to keep both the current Xcent and the new car together in the market, like it plans to do with the Grand i10 and Nios.
While the Nios-based sedan is seen with a full camouflage, the latest images reveal that its production parts, hinting that the launch may not be too far in the future. The test car appears to be featuring halogen headlamps, but there are LED DRLs in the bumper, much like those on the Euro-spec new Grand i10 (Nios’ European counterpart). Images suggest that the sedan would get LED treatment in the tail lamps.
The new Xcent is expected to feature a similar interior design as the Nios. Engines are also expected to be carried forward, which is also the case with the Nios that gets the same engines as the existing Grand i10. So expect BS6 versions of the 1.2-litre petrol and diesel engine to be on offer on the sedan. Since the Nios gets AMT with both the engines, Hyundai might as well offer the new transmission in the sedan as well.
We expect the sedan to get more features compared to the existing Xcent and feature connected car tech as well, as Hyundai has said that it would offer the same in all its future models.
