Pros : Ride Quality

Cons : found none as yet

Look and Style: Great.

Comfort: Ride quality is really good. AC quick and is more than adequate.

Pickup: Though many of the online reviews says that the highway performance is not great, I have a different view: In my 2200 km driving of which around 600 km was on highway with 5 people and around 50 kg luggage and I never felt underpowered while overtaking. Also, some of the experts mentioned that in the fifth gear you could reach 100 km at 2700 rpm. However, from my experience at around 2300 - 2400 rpm I could cruise at 100KMPH and at around 3000 rpm 120 KMPH.

Mileage: Around 20 KMP with AC on highway and 17KMPL in city.

Overall Experience: Great. This is in continuation of my review posted last month. I had reported a problem with regard to some abnormal engine noise. Now, after thorough inspection of the car by the service engineers and listening to the engine noise of few new cars at the dealers place by me , it is confirmed that it is a normal operating sound of Grand's CRDi engine, and I am fully convinced with that. Now, I can confidently recommend the Diesel Grand i10 to anybody whose is looking for a practical decent hatchback.

    What about the petrol version??? M planning to get one of those... please tell me grand i10 or Swift...???

    Hi Santosh, Best thing to do is to go for a test drive (TD) of both the vehicles. While taking TD, select the route in such way that it consists of some bad road, highway and some climbing up as well to understand the performance under different road conditions. Also it is advisable to have 5 people on board with AC on. Both the cars have reliable proven engine. As they say swift is drivers car (fun to drive), while the ride quality, features and passenger comfort is better in Grand. I believe Grand would give 1-2 KM more mileage than swift. You may do some online research as well. Hope you will be able to make a right choice soon!

    Hi, I have driven around 7000 KMs so far and getting around 18-19 (with AC on) in the city driving and 21-22 on highway. Expecting some improvement in mileage after 10000 KM service. Pick up on highway is good. I never felt under powered.

    Hi Senthil, Regarding the performance of 3 cylinder engine, it is linear (more or less like a petrol engine), very less turbo lag and you may not know that it is a 3 cylinder engine except when idling. As I mentioned in my review, I never felt that it is under powered on highways and must say that quite sufficient for normal use. I would recommend you to take Grand's TD on a highway and feel it yourself. As I understand Ford figo is a very good car. However, as an overall package Grand has an edge I believe (Recently, I read a famous auto magazine article in which they have a detailed comparison of ritz, figo, liva and grand. Based on several factors the overall ratings given were Grand - 8/10, liva and ritz 7/10 and figo 6/10). Figo wont be a smart choice if you have more than 30% of your driving in the city as Fogo gives around 13-14 in city with AC, also you may feel bit of turbo lag and steering is not light. Finally, I conclude by saying that you will not be disappointed if you decide in favor of Grand.

    Like the 7 speed automatic in Polo, why don't the Hyundais come out with a similar one. Why do they go for the 4 speed automatic where the power ratio as well as the mileage is less. Isn't this 4 speed automatic version outdated?? Request a reply asap. Thanks kumar
