The sub 4-meter SUV segment is among the most hottest segment in the Indian automotive space right now. Almost all major manufacturers have marked their presence in the segment. The rest are toiling hard to prepare a product to take on the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon. Hyundai too is preparing its compact SUV since some time and has decided to name it Styx. The Styx is based on the Carlino concept shown off at the Auto Expo and was earlier rumoured to be called as Qxi. Now, new spyshots have surfaced which show the interiors of the upcoming Vitara Brezza challenger.
Hyundai has been testing its smallest SUV since some time now. We had brought you a video in which the Styx, though heavily camouflaged, could be seen clearly. The picture above gives a glimpse of how the interiors could be, though the final production version could have a bit different interiors. As seen in the spyshot, the Styx will come with an all black interior theme. The seats seem to be quite well bolstered and there is a hand rest between the front seats too. The top variant could be expected to come with ventilated seats too, as the Hyundai offers the same with Verna and Elantra sedans. However, that would drive up the costs to well over the competition so ventilated seats are not a sure shot feature for now.
While the dashboard and other bits are not much Also, as already mentioned, the interiors on the test car feature an all black theme but the Indian version could come with a dual tone theme. If so, beige would be among the preferred option given the love beige is given in our country. The QXi will most probably feature 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with a long list of features. The car is expected to be high on safety too, especially with the upcoming BNSVAP norms. It could come with seven airbags on its top-spec variants. The new Styx compact SUV will sit below the Creta in Hyundai’s India line-up. The compact SUV will take design cues from the current range of Hyundai models, such as the cascading Hyundai grille and the Kona-like split-headlamp units.
The side profile looks quite similar to its bigger brother, the Creta. As for the powertrains, nothing is confirmed as of now but the SUV could come with 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine producing 118 Bhp. A 1.5 litre diesel engine with around 115 Bhp on tap could also find its way in the Styx. Both engine options will be BS-VI-compliant, in lieu with the upcoming stringent norms. Also, an electric version of the Styx is also reportedly in development. The QXi compact SUV will rival the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and the upcoming Mahindra XUV300 upon its arrival.
