Hyundai is one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the Indian market. They are slowly revamping their line-up. They have discontinued the Santro and stopped taking bookings for the Aura and Grand i10 Diesel. The manufacturer is also preparing to launch new facelifts and new generations of their vehicle so that they stay competitive in the Indian market. Here, are 6 cars that Hyundai will soon launch in our country.
Hyundai Venue Facelift
Hyundai is testing a facelift of the Venue compact SUV. This is the first facelift that Venue will be getting since its launch. With the facelift, Hyundai will be revamping the design of the Venue. It will come with a new grille design that we have seen on new Hyundai cars. It will still come with a split headlamp setup but the tail lamps will now be a split unit. There will also be a new set of alloy wheels. Hyundai might also make some changes to the interior and add some features.
Hyundai Venue N Line
Hyundai is also working on a new N Line variant of the Venue. It will come with mechanical upgrades over the regular Venue just like i20 N Line. There would be a stiffer suspension setup, sporty sounding exhausts, N Line specific gear lever, N-Line specific steering wheel and N-Line specific alloy wheels. There would be cosmetic changes also so it will have a sportier bumper and sportier-looking cabin too. The Venue N Line will be offered only with the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine.
Hyundai Ioniq 5
Hyundai will be launching the Ioniq 5 in the Indian market soon. The test mules of the electric crossover have already been spotted on our Indian roads. It will be brought to India as a CBU or Completely Built Unit. Because of this, the price will be on the higher side. One of the biggest selling points of the Ioniq 5 is its exterior and interior design. It looks like it is from the future. It also gets a lot of advanced features and even an all-wheel drive.
Hyundai Tucson Facelift
The manufacturer is also testing the facelifted version of the Tucson SUV. It will come with the new “Parametric Grille” that we will also be seen on all the new upcoming vehicles. The exterior is all new and so is the interior. Mechanically, it is expected to stay the same as the current-gen. So, there will be a 2.0-litre diesel and a 2.0-litre petrol engine on offer.
Hyundai is also preparing to launch the next generation of Verna in the Indian market. The test mules have been spotted globally as well as on our Indian roads. As of now, not much is known about the sedan. We are expecting heavy changes to the interior as well as the exterior. The Verna will continue to be one of the most equipped sedans on offer.
Hyundai Creta Facelift
The new-gen Creta was launched back in 2020. It might be selling well but the design of the mid-size SUV is quite polarizing. Some people hate it whereas others love it. So, Hyundai has decided to give it a facelift with a new set of bumpers. It will now get the new “Parametric Grille” that we are seeing on other Hyundai vehicles. This will make the SUV fall in line with the manufacturer’s design philosophy. There could also be some new features that Hyundai could add.
Hyundai Kona Electric Facelift
Hyundai was the first manufacturer to launch an electric vehicle in the Indian market, it was the Kona Electric. But the electric crossover has been very successful in the market. The major reasons are the crossover-like design, less driving range than the rival, lacking features and price. Hyundai is expected to launch the facelift of the Kona Electric this year. It would now look like the Kona Electric that is being sold in the global market. There could be other updates as well to the interior, driving range and electric motor.
