India bound new Hyundai i10 called Brilliant caught testing in Chennai, India

Hyundai's new small car, which would be manufactured at Chennai's factory and would roll out in October 2013 would be called Brilliant, as we already told you.

The new Hyundai i10 / Brilliant has been spied many times earlier too however once again, the car was spotted testing in Chennai, where the plant would be manufactured. As per the confirmed sources, the new car would be priced little higher than the current i10 and would be sold along with the i10. Later, once the new brand stabilizes in the market and moreover the Korean car maker would also access the response of the new car, the current generation i10 would be stopped manufacturing and the new car would completely take over.

The new i10 which is codenamed BA would be launched around October 2013 and will be powered by a 1.1L diesel engine apart from regular 1.1 and 1.2L Kappa engine. The company has already constructed the third engine plant at its Chennai factory and will very soon start manufacturing the diesel engines in India which are currently imported from Korea, expect then i20 and Verna to be available with more discounts, near to Diwali 2013.

Hyundai by launching more fluidic i10 / Brilliant and with the diesel variant wants to give Maruti Suzuki Swift a bump both from the front as well as back. We will have to wait and watch until end of 2013 to see what scenario would be of Diesel market in India and thereby how customers respond to Diesel cars and thus Hyundai's new small diesel car in India.
