NEW DELHI :In its latest addition, the Hyundai Motor India on Monday said it has launched GRAND i10 NIOS Corporate Edition with prices starting from Rs 6.28 lakh (ex-showroom).
“Hyundai conceptualised the GRAND i10 NIOS for progressive and young new age customers in India. Having witnessed a trailblazing sales run since its launch, we are glad to now introduce the sporty and hi-tech focussed Corporate Edition on the GRAND i10 NIOS to induce delight and enhance the value offered to new age buyers,” Hyundai Motor India Director (Sales, Marketing and Service) Tarun Garg noted.
The five-speed manual variant is priced at ₹6.28 lakh while the automated manual transmission (AMT) is tagged at ₹6.97 lakh.
Powered by 1.2 litre petrol engine, the new model trim comes with both manual and automatic powertrains.
Starting with the exterior, the Nios Corporate Edition sits on new 15-inch gunmetal styled wheels (not alloys) compared to the 14-inch steel wheels with covers on the regular Magna. Interestingly the wheel size is also larger than the more expensive Grand i10 Nios Sportz which sits on 14-inch alloys as standard with only the dual-tones getting 15-inchers. Additionally, compared to the Magna, the Corporate Edition also gets the addition of roof rail, some additional chrome trimming to the rear and black finished wing mirrors.
The grille also gets a gloss black finish on all colour options while the regular Magna could be had with either a black or silver finish based on the exterior colour.
Coming to the equipment, the Corporate Edition gets the addition of power-folding exterior mirrors with turn indicators on both manual and AMT variants – it is only available on the Magna AMT. The CE also gets a new 6.75-inch touchscreen with smartphone-based navigation in place of the Magna’s 2-DIN system.
Moving to cosmetics, the Nios Corporate Edition gets the addition of roof rails, some chrome garnish on the boot, black finished wing mirrors and a gloss black finish to the grille. The standard Magna’s grille was finished in black or silver depending on the exterior colour. Inside the cabin, the Corporate Edition gets black fabric upholstery with red inserts on the seats, AC vents and gear lever – a similar interior colour scheme to the more expensive Sportz Dual Tone and Turbo models.
As mentioned above, the Corporate Edition is solely available with the familiar 82 bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine paired with either a manual or AMT gearbox.
