The Grand i10 fuel economy ratings will be different for top and base variant as the wheel size options could be 14 and 16-inch, which does make a difference.
Back in 2013 Hyundai had first launched the new Grand i10 in India and after two years it received its first facelift. As of now, the Korean car manufacturer is working on the upcoming Grand i10 and it will most probably get a new platform and an all-new chassis.
