The 2020 Nios turbo’s top variant comes with the following features:

  • Wireless phone charging
  • 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Android Auto and Apple Carplay
  • Keyless entry and push-button start/stop

Design features unique to the Nios Turbo are:

  • All-black interiors with red accents
  • Gloss black grille with turbo badge
  • Grey inside door handles

Given the power and torque to weight ratio of the Grand i10 Nios turbo, it seems to compete with hot hatches. But, in our SUV-friendly country, most hot hatches have either died or are on the verge. That leaves us with the Nios Turbo as the most potent candidate in the hot hatch field
