Hyundai Could Launch Diesel i10 in India in 2013
To capitalize on this, Hyundai is rumored to be offering a diesel version of the i10 city car in the second half of 2013. This car will most likely be locally produced to keep its price to a minimum.
A 1.1 litre 3-cylinder diesel CRDi variant is available in Europe and is the likely candidate. We’ve shown you that Hyundai is working on a new generation of the i10 which will be ready by 2014. However, the Indian market will most likely be slow in adopting this because of its price competitiveness.
Right now, the i10 is offered with either 1.1 or 1.2-liter petrols, but the diesel could prove to be the pick of the bunch, as it’s expected to offer 75 hp and much more torque.
