Like many other car manufacturers in India, Hyundai is also gearing up for the launch of their new products in India. Hyundai recently launched the 2022 version of their popular compact SUV Venue in the market. Hyundai will be bringing in more SUV body shape vehicles to India in future due to its rising popularity. This year, they have a variety of products lined up for launch. All of them are SUVs. Some of them are Internal combustion engine cars while the others are electric vehicles. Here we have a list of 4 new SUVs that Hyundai will be launching in India this year.
Hyundai will be launching the next-generation Tucson premium SUV in the Indian market on 13 July. The premium SUV competes with cars like Jeep Compass in the segment. Hyundai is launching the fourth generation Tucson which was already available in the international market. The car comes with parametric front grille with integrated LED DRLs, split headlamps, all LED tail lamps, redesigned dashboard and so on. The SUV will come with a fully digital instrument cluster and a large touchscreen infotainment system, ventilated seats, ADAS, panoramic sunroof and so on. The Tucson is expected to be offered with a 2.0 litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine. Both engines will be mated to an automatic transmission.
Hyundai introduced the current generation Creta in 2020 and now they are planning to launch a facelift for the popular mid-size SUV. Hyundai did unveil a facelifted version for Creta internationally but, it is rumoured that the Indian version will be slightly different from that. The SUV will offer more features than ever before and will be offered with the same engine options too. There will be a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol, 1.4 litre turbo petrol and 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine options on offer. Hyundai might also introduce ADAS in the Creta facelift. Hyundai is expected to launch the Creta facelift sometime later this year.
Electric cars are gaining popularity and are now a common sight on our roads. Hyundai introduced the Kona EV in India back in 2019 and it competes with the likes of MG ZS EV in the segment. It offered a long list of features and decent driving range but, the steep price tag was a problem. Hyundai is said to be working on a facelift for the Kona EV. The updated version is expected to come with revised exterior design and updated cabin with more features like any other Hyundai. It is not clear whether Hyundai will increase the range and work on the pricing this time.
Hyundai Ioniq 5
Last car in the list is the Ioniq 5. Hyundai announced earlier this year that, they will be launching the Ioniq 5 electric car in India this year. It will be assembled here in India. It is an electric car with retro design elements and modern features. The car has already been spotted in India couple of times and is expected to be launched in two variants. There will be a single motor and a dual motor or an E-AWD variant on offer. It is expected to launched in Rs 50-60 lakh price bracket.
