I have been using Hyundai i10 Grand (Petrol) since May 2015, I bought it as soon as I reached India from an assignment as I had been researching car's when I was away and always zeroed down Hyundai Grand based on its performance as few of my friends already has different variants of it (my old car was really old). I wanted a hatchback as I drive mostly in the city, I was impressed with the car features and pricing and as I had previously owned 2 Hyundai cars I was aware of the performance and service provided by them.
I saw a lot of i10 Grand's in Europe and was already impressed with the looks and interiors though I had never driven one till I bought it, I believed on reviews from some of the owners and was very excited to own it.
Most of my friends asked me that I could have waited few months to get the new Honda Jazz or Ford Figo, my answer to them always was that if they can provide me with the same features and performance as Grand in the same (almost) price I would be happy to buy. I was not wrong as the car is excellent when you drive in city and much better when I am on the highway. Very low sound when you drive, no vibrations when on the highway (~100-120 kmph), excellent interior with rear sensor, retractable rear view mirrors (which becomes handy when driving in crowded city traffic). Plus the reason for choosing between Sportz and Asta was the steering mount controls which really puts the car as best in class and not to forget the rear AC vents which are a blessing in Indian summer. The boot space is also decent and usually fits everything for a small family vacation.
The power to weight ratio is excellent which makes the drive more smooth. I recently took the car on hills and I had no complaints while driving it uphill.
Most surprising was the mileage on the highway, I could easily get 18.5-19 kmpl when driving at a decent speed of 90-100, though in the city it would be normal around 14-15 kmpl based on driving conditions. Apart from all this, the service, as usual, is great from Hyundai. Though I would like to drive more than I really can from my home to office distance is less than 2 km (hence the petrol variant), but I still often drive around 500-600 km a month on weekend trips etc.
With the new variant with airbags, this becomes a very good buying option in its class when compared with other hatchbacks in India, although competition is stiff in this category but I feel Grand stands out to most of it rivals.
Overall I rated the car as 5 stars though my earlier car was a sedan and I miss the space in front seats which is something that I always knew when I decided to buy a hatchback.
The car is excellent in terms of performance, features, cost and satisfaction and would recommend anyone looking for a decent hatchback.
