Hyundai started off making affordable small cars, but has now graduated into making cool, stylish and value-for-money cars, loaded to the gills with features. There are 8 new vehicles soon coming our way from Hyundai. Here’s more.
The first vehicle that will be coming our way from Hyundai is the Tucson which will be launched on the 14th of this month. It is a mid size SUV that has been positioned between the Santa Fe and the Creta.
It is expected to be priced around the Rs 20 lakh mark. It will be powered by a 2.0 liter petrol (150 Bhp) and 2.0 liter diesel engine (180 Bhp). Hyundai certainly has a winner on their hands if they manage to get the pricing right (18-20 lakhs).
Grand i10 Facelift
The Grand i10 has been on sale for sometime now and has received an update globally. The company is already working on bringing that update to the Indian market soon and the new vehicle has also been spotted testing a few times in India.
We expect a minor make over to come in the Grand i10. The major change is expected to be the addition of a newly developed AMT which will make the Grand i10 automatic more affordable. The car is already a hot seller here and, competes directly with the Maruti Swift.
Though the Xcent is just 2 years old, it is based on the Grand i10. If the Grand gets a facelift, the Xcent will certainly follow as well. Minor exterior changes are expected on the Xcent as well.
Like the Grand, this one will too get the newly developed AMT which will allow it to be priced more competitively and take the fight better to the Dzire AMT, which currently is the segment leader.
The Santa Fe has been the flagship Hyundai SUV for sometime now. Though the vehicle isn’t really selling well, it is a pretty good vehicle. The Santa Fe has got an update globally and the same is expected to reach our shores soon.
The new facelift gets an aggressive front bumper with LED DRLs on it along with a few more changes that make the Santa Fe look a lot better than the outgoing version. We expect the vehicle to be unveiled early next year.
