Expected to arrive in India in 2021.
Grille and split headlamps design resembles the Venue.
Likely to borrow its powertrains from the Grand i10 Nios -- 1.2-litre petrol and diesel.
A test mule of Hyundai’s micro-SUV has been spotted again after it was last seen being loaded on a transporter. Hyundai’s answer to the upcoming Tata HBX and Maruti Ignis was heavily camouflaged, but it still reveals quite a few design details.
This time around, we’ve got a clearer view of the front fascia. The grille and the split headlights resemble that of the Venue. Previously, we saw that the SUV has an upright stance and a boxy design. It gets a high ground clearance with a tall seating position. The model spied here looks like a top-spec variant, just like the one spotted earlier. This is evident from the stylised wheels, which look like 16-inch alloys filling out the flared wheel arches.
There is still no glimpse of the interior but considering Hyundai’s other models, we can expect the carmaker to offer the micro-SUV with a bunch of segment-topping features ranging from a touchscreen infotainment system and a multi-info display to a wireless charger. Adequate features are likely on the safety end too with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and a rear parking camera.
Under the hood, we can expect to see Hyundai’s two 1.2-litre engines, the 83PS petrol and 75PS diesel units, seen in the Grand i10 Nios. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine, which puts out 100PS in the Nios and Aura, could also be offered. The transmission options are also likely to be borrowed from the Grand i10 Nios, with the 1.2-litre engines getting an AMT option.
There’s still some time before the micro-SUV hits the market, probably sometime in 2021. What we do know is that it will go up against the upcoming Tata HBX, in addition to other micro-SUVs such as the Mahindra KUV100 NXT and the Maruti Suzuki Ignis.
