Hyundai India has a fantastic product in the new Grand i10 Nios. However, for some strange reason, the car hasn’t been doing as well as expected. Its been a year since its launch and the numbers aren’t as much as Hyundai expected. To boost sales, the Korean brand has now brought in a Corporate Edition model. The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Corporate Edition is based on the Magna trim. Price of the petrol model is Rs 6.11 lakh while that of the petrol-AMT is Rs 6.64 lakh. There is also the diesel version but only with a manual, priced at Rs 7.19 lakh, ex-showroom. Hyundai has priced the Nios Corporate Edition at a premium of Rs 10,000 over the regular Magna versions. Only a few showrooms have got the Corporate Edition models with them as of now. The car will be available for a limited period, perhaps for festive season.

The new bits in the Grand i10 Nios Corporate Edition include emblems at the side and rear, inside the cabin and more. 15-inch gun-metal wheel caps are provided, and the ORVMs are electrically adjustable as well as foldable.

The Grand i10 Nios continues to be powered by a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol that makes 83PS and 113Nm. This engine can be paired with either a 5-speed manual or an AMT. There is also the 1.2-litre diesel engine that pumps out 75PS of power and 190Nm. For the corporate version, there is only the 5-speed manual whereas in regular variants, one gets an AMT as well.
