Hyundai Grand i10

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

Hyundai has always packed their interiors with loads of features and the Grand i10 isn’t any different. The quality, fit and finish is good and it feels plush on the inside.


The interiors of the Grand i10 are stylish and even the fit and finish is at par. The look and feel of the plastic is good too. The Hyundai Grand i10 gets several features like keyless entry, Bluetooth connectivity, push start stop button, chiller glove box and even rear AC vents. This is the first hatchback in this segment to get AC vents for rear passengers. This helps to cool the interiors faster. The interiors of the Grand i10 are stylish and spacious. Though many would have expected a touchscreen system in it, but it would have increased the cost.The Grand i10’s front row seats have fixed head rests, which is something we aren’t really a fan off. The rear seat space offered by Hyundai on the Grand i10 is good too. It has a lot of space for three Indian adults to sit in comfort. Only if the adults are too tall or healthy, that is when it will be a bit of extra squeeze.

 

 


Era: Era is the base model for the Grand i10 and it gets features like immobiliser, chrome radiator grille, body coloured bumpers, dual tone interiors, tachometer, digital clock, AC, tinted glass, front power windows and electronic power steering.

 


 

Magna: Magna gets additional features like central locking, front fog lamps, day and night rear view mirror, keyless entry, body coloured handles and mirrors, rear power windows, auto down for driver’s window, electrically adjustable ORVMs, rear parcel tray and rear AC vents.


Sportz: This variant gets smart key, chrome on door handles, turn indicator on ORVMs, 2 DIN music system, push start and stop and electrically folding ORVMs.

 


Asta: The Asta is the top of the line, and it gets driver and co-driver airbag as optional fitment, diamond cut alloys, leather wrapped steering wheel, steering mounted audio controls, Bluetooth, driver’s seat height adjustment and rear headrest adjustment.

ENGINE:
Ed's take:

Hyundai has got the powertrain perfect. The new diesel is a gem of a mill and it is perfect for city driving, without the hassle of continuous shifting for drivability.

 

Hyundai Grand i10 will be available with two engine options. First being the 1.2-litre Kappa 2 engine with VTVT that will churn about 79bhp of power and 112Nm of maximum torque. This engine is the same one that already powers the i10 and the i20. The power produced by this engine is sufficient and this has been a good engine for city and highway driving. The gearing for this engine is spot on for majorly city and somewhat highway driving. This engine has a variable valve timing that improves performance without hampering any fuel efficiency. There is some amount of struggle in the lower power band of this engine.

 

This engine will be offered with a five-speed manual and a four-speed automatic transmission. The manual transmission is slick with short shifts and the location of the box is on the centre console. The clutch is also light and easy to use in city where you constantly clutch and de-clutch. The automatic on the other hand is a bit sluggish and has the rubber band effect. The other engine on offer in the Grand i10 is the 1.1-litre U2 diesel engine on this. This engine produces 68bhp of power and 160nm of maximum torque. The power delivery is fairly linear and there is hardly any turbo lag. But once you cross 3500rpm, the engine struggles to produce power just like most of the short stroke mills. To improve drivability, this engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission that has short gearing. This enhances the drivability in city making it easier to pull when even the cog is lugged in a higher slot. It is only the fifth gear that is overdrive, for better highway fuel efficiency.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Ed's take:

The ride of the Grand i10 is well sorted, however it is the handling that is good for city driving. The steering wheel feel is better than the i20 and Verna, but it isn’t that exciting.

 

The handling on the other hand isn’t brilliant. Now, the Grand i10 has been designed for city driving, so handling within the city speed limits is just fine. If you push it beyond, it understood that it won’t that great as it isn’t meant for that. The steering wheel is definitely a lot more responsive than the Eon and i20 and doesn’t feel slack or dead at any given time.

 

The ride on the Grand i10 is supple and the suspension does a good job of ironing out most of the bumps. The front has McPherson struts while we assume the rear to have multi-link struts. The ride on the Grand i10 is good and that is what it has been built for. The occupants aren’t just comfortable but also are happy to have a good ride.

Maruti Swift Dzire

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

Maruti Suzuki has cut the length of the new DZire and also introduced new features in it like the new Swift. To differentiate it form the Swift, it has black and beige interiors instead of the black that come with the hatchback. The Swift Dzire is the sedan to buy, if you want it just for the heck of a three-box, else the Swift does the job.

Just like the new Swift, the interiors of the new DZire have also been redone. The DZire’s interiors are based on that of the new Swift. Swift gets all black interiors, while the DZire has black and beige colour combination. The plastic quality of the materials doesn’t just look good, but it also feels good. It has a lot more features than the previous generation Swift DZire, and it looks more premium also.

The space in both the rows is decent and the knee room even in the second row is good, which was a problem in the outgoing version. Though to our dismay, the boot of the Swift DZire is small for a sedan. The cut length of the DZire doesn’t have a large boot.

LXI/LDI:Talking about the LXI/LDI, Maruti Suzuki hasn’t scaled down the base versionas it has loaded the new Swift DZire LXI with body color bumpers and tubeless tyres. Other exterior features are 2 intermittent wipers in front, steel wheels with centre cap, remote fuel lid and back-door opener.

VXI/VDI/VXI automatic:Unlike the LXI/LDI model, VXI/VDI has body color door handles in addition to body color bumpers, electrically powered ORVMs with turn indicators, front and rear fog lamps for enhanced visibility during unfavorable weather conditions, black out film on A and B pillars and 165/80 R14 steel wheel cap. The instrument cluster includes tachometer along with standard equipments like seat belt, key-off, and door close and light-off reminder for driver, low fuel warning, multi information display etc.

ZXI/ZDI:ZXI/ZDI is loaded with comfort factors like power and tilt steering, power windows with auto down function on driver side window, driver seat adjuster, automatic climate control, lane change indicator, high-end stereo with radio and CD Player, intelligent speed based auto volume, Aux-in and USB socket, 2 front and 2 rear speakers, 2 integrated front tweeters, steering wheel mounted audio controls with illumination. Not the luxury, but practical options are available in the model like accessory socket, retractable cup holder for passengers and in centre console, rear seat back folding centre locking, keyless entry, front seat back pocket and remote fuel lid opener.

ENGINE:
Ed's take:

The petrol and the diesel versions of the Swift DZire are both reliable and highly frugal. With highly refined mills, Maruti Suzuki has played well with its cards on the new Swift DZire. The new petrol engine now gets an addition of variable valve timing and also the DZire is the only sedan in the C segment to get an automatic transmission.

1.2-litre PetrolThe new Swift DZire’s petrol engine received the variable valve treatment. This augments performance and fuel efficiency, though on paper, power ratings for this engine are 86bhp – a mere increase by a couple of horses. Like any modern petrol, the engine is quiet and low on NVH (noise, vibration and harshness).

When off the gas, the low engine whining sound— as experienced on the old 800s— is audible. Mid- range is good, but it does make you work-hard a bit to extort performance. Overtaking in city might require a downshift, despite the engine’s gradual power deliverance.

The DZire comes with a 5-speed manual and it is also available with a 4-speed automatic transmission also. The gear shifts on the Swift are short and effortless. The previous-generation Swift DZire had good shifts; these are a further improvement over those.

Talking of the 4-speed automatic, the shifts are slow and there is some latency in it. But it is good enough for city driving. We wish, it had a 5-speed box atleast.

1.3-litre Diesel:Previous generation Swift DZire had earned notoriety with its diesel engine. The engine was highly refined with low NVH levels and sufficient torque. The engine however had a noticeable amount of turbo lag. The R&D team of Maruti Suzuki has rectified now this issue in the current-generation Swift and the DZire.

The low-end pull is cleaner making the engine more drivable than the outgoing version. The NVH levels and refinement is far more superior as well. Crank the engine and it springs to live without the slightest of hesitation or melodrama. Driving in bumper-to-bumper city traffic and overtaking isn’t a tough ask in the Swift DZire. The gear shifts are also positive and the engagement process is smooth.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Ed's take:

The ride of the Swift DZire is well composed as the rear springs are softened, as compared to the Swift hatch. The handling is decent, but the soft rear doesn’t mean a lot of fun driving can happen.

The ride on the DZire is softer at the rear when compared to the Swift. This gives it better riding characteristics than the Swift. The bumps are soaked in much better and even the ride is more plush than the Swift, atleast for the back row occupants.

The handling isn’t that bad alright. Apart from the rear being soft, there isn’t so much to worry. Minor corrections can be made through the steering that weighs well, giving an accurate feedback. The flexibility of the chassis adds to the enjoyment. Being engineered for city and highway, the steering wheel is light for easy manoeuvrability.
