Hyundai, the Korean Car Giant with ‘NEW THINKING. NEW POSSIBILITIES’ design philosophy, has its eyes fixed on the pedestal long enjoyed by Maruti Suzuki in India. A look at the line up of product offerings for the Indian Audience from the Hyundai Factory in the next five years indicates that Hyundai company is no longer willing to play second fiddle to its Japanese counterpart. At a time when the Indian Auto Market is slowly but surely shedding its long-held tag of being budget driven, the following affordable and premium offerings could turn the tables upside down and launch Hyundai as the new leader.

Below mentioned upcoming Hyundai Cars in India

New Hyundai Grand i10 (AI3)

While 2018 witnessed the launch of much awaited Santro AMT, we expect Hyundai to ring in the New Year with the Global Launch of next-gen Hyundai Grand i10. Styled and Updated to challenge the new Swift in its segment, the next-gen Grand i10 will shed its ‘tall boy’ profile with improved premium design and passenger comfort.

Under the hood, the New Hyundai Grand i10 will carry the same 1.2L engine in its petrol and diesel variants. However, a torque converter will make way for an AMT gearbox. A sunroof could be a welcome surprise addition.

New Xcent Sedan AMT

Following on the footsteps of its next-gen i10 sibling, the new Xcent Sedan will share its design and platform with the former. But more importantly, its the leather dimensions of the new sedan that prove to be major crowd puller across showrooms.

Proper legroom for rear passengers, rear AC vents with 12V and USB charging ports will be some of the new attractions. The icing on the cake is definitely a sunroof. The engine remains the same but this time it comes mated to an auto gearbox.

Hyundai Kona EV

Slated for June 2019 launch, the Kona will be Hyundai’s first electric cars offering in India. Powered by a 39.2kWH battery pack it promises a range of 300km with 0 to 100kph in 9.7sec.

The mill churns 134 hp at 395 Nm and cloaks a top speed of 155 kph. Hyundai will opt for local assembly to stay price competitive. Expect price tag in the range of Rs 25 lakh.

Hyundai QXI/STYX

Hyundai will usher 2019, with the launch of QXI, its sub-Creta SUV, in 2019. The subcompact SUV may also be christened as ‘Styx’. A spin off the popular Creta, Hyundai will fit this compact version with 1.0-litre, three-cylinder 118hp turbo-petrol engine with greater mid-range torque. In addition to the standard variant, we expect Hyundai to offer a premium variant of the compact SUV fitted with Verna’s BS-VI-certified 1.5-litre diesel engine. Next-gen Hyundai i20 (PI3)

Next-gen Hyundai i20 will make its way to the showrooms in 2020. Hyundai will have high hopes pegged against the new avatar of their flagship hatchback. On Indian roads, it will have Baleno, Jazz and Tata’s upcoming 45X for company. Expect Hyundai to leave no stone unturned to make a strong statement with its next-gen i20 as the leader in the hatchback category will clearly command other segments too in Indian Auto Market.

New Hyundai Creta

The current apple of everyone’s eye, the next-gen Hyundai Creta, will have high hopes pinned to it. Especially even more so considering the success and love the current Creta version has received from the Indian Audience. Expect a new design language with improved styling themes.

Power duties will rest on a new set of 1.5-litre, BS-VI-compliant petrol, and diesel engines. Reportedly, Hyundai may surprise one and all with a larger 5+2-seat version of the Creta.

New Hyundai Tucson

India bound Hyundai Tucson will be a seven-seat layout boasting of RDE (Real Driving Emissions) cycle compliance. Reportedly, the norms for RDE certification are much more stringent than the current BS-VI emission norms and would come into effect in 2023.

Expect the Tucson to come equipped with a head-up display, wireless charging, and advanced telematics.


Hyundai Micro SUV

Hyundai may also offer a micro SUV sometime in future as a challenger to Renault Kwid and Maruti Future S concept.

The micro-SUV will be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine and offer no diesel option.
