Hyundai could offer a host of changes to the exteriors of the Grand i10 Nios facelift. Up front, it could offer a redesigned grille with a mesh pattern while retaining the halogen projector headlamps. The spy shots do not lend any detail about the incorporation of a DRL within the headlight casing. Hence, we expect the Grand i10 Nios to keep the DRLs in the grille.

Around the side, the Grand i10 Nios facelift could offer a new set of machined alloy wheels, measuring 15-inch in size. Although currently, it looks like the test car is running on the older alloys. Other than that, the spy shots do not reveal any other changes on the side profile. Around the rear, however, we can see some touchups in the tail lamps while keeping the tail lamp housing as is.

With the facelift, the Grand i10 Nios could offer the current set of engine options. Currently, there is no clarity on the status of the Grand i10 Nios diesel. Hyundai’s website doesn’t mention the prices for the diesel variants of the Nios. With the facelift also, we do not expect Hyundai to offer an option of a diesel engine.

The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios facelift is likely to offer the 83PS 1.2L normal petrol, 69PS 1.2L normal petrol-CNG and 100PS 1.0L turbo petrol engine options. While the 1.2L petrol-CNG and 1.0L turbo petrol come with a 5-speed manual transmission, the 1.2L normal petrol engine will also offer the AMT automatic as an option.
