Upcoming Hyundai Cars in India – the Korean automaker will launch 8 new cars in the country in the next two years.
The South Korean carmaker, Hyundai has begun 2017 with the launch of the Grand i10 facelift in India. Besides this, the company has a bag full of exciting new launches and facelifts that will be rolled out in the next two years.
Here’s the list of the upcoming Hyundai cars in India that will be rolled out within next two years.
Hyundai’s popular hatchback – Eon – will receive its first facelift sometime this year. First launched in October 2011, the Hyundai Eon has always been admired for its modern fluidic design and feature-rich interior. However, the launch of the Renault Kwid has made it difficult for the Eon to retain its position. Therefore, the hatchback will come with some significant cosmetic changes along with a range of new comfort and safety features. Though, its Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy will remain intact.
Powering the 2017 Eon will be the same 800cc and a 1.1-litre petrol engines. Hyundai might also introduce an automatic transmission on the hatchback. If launched, the Eon automatic version will surely be more expensive than the manual variants.
|Expected Price||Rs 3 lakh – Rs 4.5 lakh|
The new-generation Hyundai Verna first broke cover in its concept avatar at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show, and its production version made first appearance at the 2016 Chengdu Motor Show in China. For 2017, the sedan receives comprehensive updates inside and out, thus making it look more premium and up-market than the outgoing model. Face of the saloon has been revised with a new triple-slat and more prominent grille, re-designed front bumper and fog lamps. Other design highlights include new alloy wheels, dual barrel reflectors, modified taillights and lots of chrome.
The interior design and controls layout, too, look slightly refreshing. Though, things remain unchanged under the skin. The India-bound 2017 Hyundai Verna will continue to come with the existing powertrains – 1.4-liter and 1.6-litre petrol and 1.4-liter and 1.6-litre diesel. If reports are to be believed, the saloon could also get an all-new 120bhp, 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. Similar to the current model, the new Verna could come with a choice of three transmissions – a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic.
