The next-gen Hyundai Creta and i20 will be launched in the second half of 2020
Hyundai is gearing up for the launch of the much-awaited Venue sub-4 meter SUV on May 21, 2019. The company is also working on the next-generation Grand i10, Creta and Elite i20. The testing of the new-gen Grand i10 has already been started and is likely to go on sale in the second half of 2019. Adding to it, Hyundai has unveiled the new-generation ix25 at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. This model previews the next-gen Hyundai Creta.
The next-generation Hyundai Creta will make its India debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, while launch is expected in the mid-2020. On the other hand, the next-gen Hyundai Elite i20 will be launched in the second half of 2020. Both cars will be equipped with BSVI compliant petrol and diesel engines. However, it will be quite early to comment whether Hyundai will continue to sell the Elite i20 with diesel powertrain in India.
The next-gen Hyundai Elite i20 is likely to be based on the new platform. It is expected to grow in size and will offer more space inside the cabin. The new model will also receive several high-end features to gain competitive edge. Like the Hyundai Venue, the new i20 will be fitted with advanced Hyundai Blue Link connectivity solutions. Additionally, the company could launch the hatchback with features like sunroof and 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The new model could also receive the new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that recently debuted in the Venue compact SUV. Also See – New Hyundai Creta – top 5 changes
The next-gen Hyundai Creta will also grow in size and will be offered in 2 seating configurations – 5-seat and 7-seat. The SUV will also receive the new BSVI compliant 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines. It will come with all-new interior, which will be inspired by the ix25. The SUV will get a large touchscreen infotainment system that flows into the central console to form a single unit. There will be minimum physical buttons except for the engine start/stop unit.
