Hyundai Styx compact SUV will rival the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport.
We informed you earlier that Hyundai will launch a sub-4 meter SUV based on the Carlino concept in 2019. The new sub-4 meter SUV is likely to be called the “Hyundai Styx”. Set to be Hyundai’s new global entry-level SUV, the Styx will use the brand’s all-new platform. However, few media reports claim that the small SUV will use the i20’s platform that was used to develop Carlino. Testing of this global model has already been commenced across the globe.
Codenamed QXi in India, the Hyundai Styx will sit below the Creta in Hyundai’s global lineup. It will take on the likes of Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and the upcoming Mahindra XUV300. With this small SUV, Hyundai will introduce an all-new powerful 118bhp, 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. The diesel version is likely to feature an 89bhp, 1.4-litre U2, CRDi. Both manual and automatic version will be on offer.
