Does it change the way the 2017 Grand i10 drives? Well, the answer is yes. The improvement in the mid-range becomes evident as the revs climb, that’s where the 30Nm of additional torque makes a difference. The in-gear acceleration appears to have improved, and that should make the overall driving experience more pleasant now. Driving the car at city speeds, however, made us realise that the engine doesn’t lose any steam below 1,750 revs too, and it still goes off the mark as before. However, the engine is noisy, and NVH levels only drop as the engine reaches optimum temperature.
