  • It costs Rs 67,000 more than the regular petrol variant.

     

  • Santro is the other hatchback in Hyundai’s lineup to get a CNG kit.

  • Expect a similar premium for the Grand i10 Nios CNG as well.

Recently, Hyundai launched the third iteration of its i10 hatchback called the Grand i10 Nios in India. While the hatchback is available with both petrol and diesel engine options, Hyundai is yet to roll out a CNG variant. However, that is expected to change soon. 

The Nios’ predecessor, the Grand i10, comes with a CNG variant and so does the smallest hatchback is Hyundai’s lineup, the Santro. Thus, it is not surprising that Hyundai will offer a CNG variant of the Grand i10 Nios in the near future.

In case of the second-gen Grand i10, the Magna variant is the one that gets a CNG kit. While the standard petrol-powered Magna variant is priced at Rs 5.79 lakh, the one equipped with the CNG kit retails for Rs 6.46 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom New Delhi), making it more expensive by Rs 67,000.

We expect Hyundai to follow the same strategy with the Grand i10 Nios CNG. Currently, the Grand i10 Nios Magna petrol variant is priced at Rs 5.84 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). So expect the CNG variant to be priced above the Rs 6 lakh mark (ex-showroom). The CNG variant should give buyers in metro cities where the fuel is readily available even more options to choose from. Would you buy the Grand i10 Nios CNG over the petrol version despite the price premium? Let us know in the comments below.
