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.

Tata Nano

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

Tata Nano is the most spacious hatchback in its segment, as it offers 21% more space than competition. This is the only hatchback in the A segment that can comfortable seat five large adults without any squeeze.

Tata Nano has been improving the Nano everything and we see this happen with every new model year vehicle. The interiors of the Nano have been enhanced, as it now gets remote keyless entry, twin glovebox, four-speaker music system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. The parcel tray also gets privacy.

The space on the Tata Nano has always been exceptional. It can comfortable seat five large adults, and there is two point seat-belt for all the three rear passengers. The parcel tray now has speakers on and even the insulation on the inside has been improved. The steering wheel on the Nano is now lighter than before.

ENGINE:
Ed's take:

The 623cc engine might look insufficient on paper, but in the real world the power this twin-cylinder produces is more than enough.

The 623cc twin-cylinder on the Nano produces 37bhp of power, which is more than enough for daily city commute. Several people complain the sound resembles that of an auto rickshaw, well this is due to the fact that the Nano has a small exhaust as it is a rear engine and also that it a two-cylinder mill. The drivability of the Nano is brilliant and it doesn’t feel underpowered or you never run out of steam when driving in city. It is easy to drive even in congested city lanes. The Nano’s gearbox is also slick, and infact one of the best boxes from Tata’s stable.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Ed's take:

The Nano is a well-balanced hatchback that strikes the perfect chord of good ride and handling.

The Nano has stiff suspension due to its short wheelbase and high centre of gravity. This makes the ride a bit stiffer, and even the tyres are tad too smaller to dampen the shocks. The ride is a bit choppy, but that’s about it. It doesn’t feel that bad and the suspension does a good job still.

The Nano handles well, when it is completely loaded. The rear engine and rear wheel drive is a combination of sports cars and Nano gets a similar set-up. The 2013 Nano has a more responsive and lighter steering wheel that makes it easier to drive too.
