Will Hyundai launch a diesel i10 in India?

     With the fuel prices rocketing, Indian car buyers are switching towards cheaper diesel. Since Hyundai has no diesel hatch below i20, it might find tough competing with the small diesel cars. Chevrolet will launch the diesel Beat in a week which might eat out the i10 share substantially. Will Hyundai does some damage control measure by launching a diesel i10? Lets speculate.

     In International market, Hyundai i10 is powered by a 1.1L CRDi engine with 75PS @ 4000 rpm and 153 Nm @ 1900-2750rpm of torque. The engine is couple to a 5 speed manual transmission. With this engine Hyundai can pull out a decent small city car for India. But the major concern is about the price. The diesel i20, though is a good car is overpriced as compared to its competitors. Hyundai has to work out no the price factor and launch the i10 as soon as possible. A price tag of less than Rs. 5 lakh ex-showroom for a base variant will be higly competitive.
