Three of the company’s major models include the Xcent, the Grand, and the i10.
Introduced in 2014, the Xcent is a front engine, front-wheel drive 4-door sedan defined as a city car. Two engines are available to power the car –- a 1.25-liter Kappa II 4-cylinder gasoline engine and a 1.1-liter U-Line 3-cylinder diesel engine.
The Hyundai Grand i10 was introduced in 2013. A 5-door hatchback, the car has a choice of four engines –- 1.0-liter Kappa II 3-cylinder, 1.0-liter Kappa II 3-cylinder LPG, 1.25-liter Kappa II 4-cylinder, and a 1.1-liter U-Line 3-cylinder diesel. There is also a choice of a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
K&N is now offering the 33-3049 washable and reusable replacement air filter for the 2014-2017 Hyundai Xcent, i10, and Grand i10.
The filter is designed to boost horsepower and acceleration and features a multilayered cotton gauze media that is treated with a special grade of oil that makes the cotton strands very sticky. The filter is designed to provide high airflow with little restriction.
Conventional paper air filters must be thick and/or the fibers must be tightly compressed and dense so that they can meet minimum filtration requirements. This means that the paper filters are more restrictive from the start. Moreover, as the paper filters capture more and more contaminants, they clog up restricting air pressure as the atmospheric air pressure outside the filter remains the same. The air pressure differential between the interior and exterior of the filter causes particles to get pulled through the paper medium forcing them through the filter and into the engine.
The K&N air filter will last up to 50,000 miles before servicing is required (depending on driving conditions). And since the K&N filters are washable they can be used over and over again while conventional paper filters will have to be replaced and discarded after just 15,000 miles. If you drive your car 150,000 miles, you will have to dispose of 10 air filters.
That is not the case with K&N washable and reusable air filters. Moreover, K&N offers an air filter cleaning kit that is specially formulated to cleanse and rejuvenate the air filter so that it can be reused for the life of your car.
K&N is so sure of the quality of its air filters it backs them with a 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty. The warranty promises that the air filter will last up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without the need for replacement.
Since the air filter is designed to fit into the existing factory air box, installation is quick and easy and can be achieved with common hand tools.
The K&N 33-3049 replacement air filter is designed for the following vehicles:
