Check out new upcoming Hyundai cars in India in the next 2 years – price, specs and other details
Hyundai is among the very few carmakers to understand the Indian car market well. With products in almost every popular segment, Hyundai has been able to maintain its lead in the domestic market. While previous year, the Korean carmaker rolled out some prominent facelifts and new-generation models, it plans to launch some crucial products in the next two years. To give you a peek into the string of launches from the Korean carmaker, we have compiled a list of upcoming Hyundai cars that are set for launch in 2018 and 2019.
Among the several other upcoming Hyundai cars, this one is going to grab many eyeballs as it will be an electric vehicle. In fact, Hyundai has showcased the Kona SUV concept at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo. However, the production model will be an all-electric SUV for Indian market. For people not in the known, Hyundai had unveiled the Kona electric at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. While the global launch is expected to take place in Geneva, India launch could take place in 2019.
Hyundai will officially introduce the Kona Electric at the next edition of Geneva Motor Show that will be held from 8th to 18th March, 2018. Hyundai India has already confirmed that the electric Kona will be introduced in India via CKD route. The vehicle will be assembled at the company’s Chennai based plant. The company could also start local development, but on later stage.
It is expected that the Kona Electric will share its electric motor with the Ioniq electric. This model is expected to offer a range of around 300km on full charge. In global markets, the Kona SUV is also available with multiple petrol and diesel powertrains with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox options. Designed on Hyundai’s new design philosophy, the Kona carries crossover-ish stance. Know More…

Hyundai’s stellar compact SUV, Creta is among the best-selling models in the segment. The South Korean carmaker will give it a mid-life update sometime this year. The Creta facelift was displayed alongside other upcoming Hyundai cars at the Sao Paula Motor Show. It was speculated that Hyundai will display the Creta facelift at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo; that didn’t happen. However, Hyundai has already started testing the new model on Indian roads.
The India-spec model is likely to receive cosmetic updates only. Some of the key highlights will include revised front grille with horizontal chrome slats, LED DRLs, new taillamps and new alloys. No changes will be made under the skin. That means, the Creta facelift will continue using the same 1.6-litre VTVT, 1.4-litre CRDi and 1.6-litre CRDi units from the current model. Transmission choices will include the 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox. Know More…
