This is the European spec car but the Indian market will see a similar update next year. Even though most of the features would not be carried on the Indian model.

What new?

The new car has received a new grille up front with an interesting design and round LED daytime running lamps, a feature that would not make to the Indian model. The fog lamp enclosures are now updated and look sleeker that before.

With the facelift, Hyundai retains the shape of the car exactly as the current model. There are new 14-inch alloy wheels. The rear end receives an all-new bumper with black inserts and circular fog lamps. The side mouldings have been updated but it does not make the car look any different from the current version.

Even though Hyundai packs a lot of equipment in the Indian models, the safety features are not expected to be in the Indian model.
