November 14, 2016 – Hyundai India had announced its plan to introduce its fourth SUV in the country. Speaking on the sidelines of the Tucson launch, Hyundai official confirmed that the company has fast paced the development process of its fourth SUV (Hyundai Carlino), and aims to introduce it in the first half of 2019. As a reminder, the Hyundai Carlino compact SUV had its world debut as HND14 concept avatar at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo.
If reports are to be believed, Hyundai’s new SUV will come with a small capacity 118bhp, turbo petrol engine instead of the 1.2-litre Kappa mill. This power unit also does duty in the global-spec i20 hatchback. The diesel version of the vehicle will have a 1.4-litre U2 CRDi engine. To be positioned below the Creta, the Carlino sub-4 meter SUV sits on the Elite i20 platform that is also underpins the Verna sedan. Interestingly, about 60% development of the Carlino will be performed by Hyundai India’s R&D team. Check Out – New Hyundai Verna Exterior & Interior Image Gallery
