2023 Grand i10 NIOS: A Tata Tiago owner’s honest opinion

ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with VSM (Vehicle Stability Management) are notable additions.

BHPian RavenAvi recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Some hits & misses of the 2023 Nios Sportz AMT:-

Auto headlamps are a new addition.

The new DRLs reminiscent of the Tata motifs are quite bright during the day and at night. But a dedicated foglamp will be missed.

Functional roof rails provided.

Rear windshield gets defogger elements only. No rear wash & wiper present – that’s reserved for the Asta.

175/60/R15 dual-tone stylised steel wheel. Sportz DT (only in MT) and Asta get same-sized diamond-cut alloys. Spare is a 165/70/R14 steel wheel for both top variants.

Keyless entry only. Asta gets a smart key with push-button start.

ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with VSM (Vehicle Stability Management) present. Another notable addition.

Cruise control is new. Useful for the highway runners.

A newly-set up voice command button (through Android Auto & Apple CarPlay only) is given on the top left. Also, a customisable home button is provided on the bottom right.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) added to the list. Our Nios came with all tyres over-inflated to 45/46 PSI during delivery!

Front map lights sorely missed. A bad miss! Front ambience is made up a bit by footwell lighting.

Automatic Climate Control is present.

You get a fast-charging Type-C USB slot (new), a 12V socket and a dedicated USB slot in the central console. No wireless charging pad below – that’s only for the Sportz DT (MT) & the Asta.

No center armrest at the front. Another miss. Even a small fixed one would have been good.

Side airbags given (new), ergo no normal seat covers for this Hyundai. Asta gets curtain airbags as well.

Rear seat comes with integrated headrests and a missing rear armrest. Not a bother for us – the rear seat will be rarely used. Asta gets adjustable rear headrests and ISOFIX mounts.

If the rear seat is ever used, the rear passengers do get their own (newly added) rear AC vents.

Reverse camera display is crystal clear and covers the entire 8-inch touchscreen display.Guidelines are fixed though.

At the same time, the reverse sensors’ display pop up on the MID in the speedo.

Wired Android Auto & Apple CarPlay added to the feature list.

When connected, they will provide turn-by-turn navigation through their respective smartphones.

Customisable buttons (marked with a star) are provided

1) On the right of the 8-inch touchscreen system, and

2) On the bottom right of the steering mounted buttons on the left.
