Hyundai recalls Grand i10 and Xcent CNG models in India. The South Korean carmaker has issued a voluntary recall for the two models and in India, over 16,000 units fall under this category.
The affected models were manufactured between 1 August 2017 and 30 September 2019. Hyundai will contact customers directly and the exercise is scheduled to begin by November 25, 2019.
As per Hyundai’s notice, the affected vehicles could have a potential fault with the CNG filters, which the carmaker will inspect/replace free of cost. The process would take around an hour’s time and will be done ah official Hyundai service centres.
Both cars, the Grand i10 and the Xcent are powered by the same engine in their CNG spec, a 1.2-litre petrol engine that makes 66 bhp and 99 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The CNG setup helps deliver a mileage of 26.8km/kg on the Grand i10, while the Xcent returns 26.1km/kg.
In other news, Hyundai is gearing up to bring all its vehicles to BS-VI standards that will be implemented soon. The Hyundai Elantra is already BS-VI ready and inline with this goal, the carmaker has discontinued the diesel engine in the Grand i10 and the Elantra.
The Xcent too will see an update as the carmaker is readying to launch the Hyundai Aura, a sub-compact sedan. The Hyundai Aura in essence is the updated Xcent, however, the carmaker will sell the Aura alongside the Xcent in the Indian market. The Xcent will be targeted towards fleet operators while the Aura will be focused towards private ownerships.
When the Hyundai Aura is launched in India, it will compete with the segment leader and India’s best-selling car, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Ford Aspire, and the Honda Amaze in India.
