The new i20 is the opening salvo as HMIL intends to launch 4 new models in coming times. Read on for details on Upcoming Hyundai cars in India 2021-2022
Hyundai is planning to launch a wide range of cars and SUVs for the Indian market imminently; it just launched the third-generation i20 premium hatchback and is readying 4 more new cars for India. Let’s take a look at the 4 upcoming Hyundai Cars in India 2021-2022
The brand is readying a 7-seater version of the Creta SUV, which is rumoured to be called the Hyundai Alcazar. It is expected to have a 20mm longer wheelbase, which should create more space in the cabin. This longer version of the Hyundai Creta will compete with the likes of the MG Hector plus, Tata Gravitas, and the Mahindra Scorpio.
The big SUV has been spotted testing in South Korea already with spy images suggesting that the Alcazar will have a significant redesign to look apart from its younger sibling. The Hyundai Alcazar should be offered with 2 engine options, a 138PS, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol or a 113PS, 1.5-litre turbo-diesel. Both engines will be offered with manual and automatic transmissions. It should be launched in mid-2021.
All-new Hyundai Elantra
Hyundai is going to launch the next-generation Elantra in India next year and it will be placed above the Tucson SUV in Hyundai’s line-up. The new Hyundai Elantra was unveiled globally in March of this year. Based on the new K3 platform, the all-new Elantra features a new design language, interior, and new engine options.
Globally, you get 1.6-litre GDI Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder petrol, but the India-spec Hyundai Elantra is likely to be offered with the same 1.5-litre turbo-diesel as the other cars here and it makes 113PS/250Nm of peak power and torque figures. You do get a more powerful 152PS, 2.0-litre petrol instead of the 1.5-litre option. It should be priced around Rs 28 lakh upon launch.
Hyundai AX micro-SUV
The manufacturer is also developing an all-new micro SUV codenamed AX and has recently been caught on camera in South Korea. The new model will be positioned below the Venue compact SUV and will compete with the upcoming Tata HBX and Maruti S-presso. The Hyundai AX will be based on the K1 platform and will come with either 1.2-litre petrol or the 1.0-litre petrol from the Santro, with both manual and AMT transmissions will be offered. Additionally, you will get an electric option as well. It is expected to be launched in 2021.
The Korean auto-giant is developing an all-new MPV to rival the Mahindra Marazzo and the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. It is reported that the MPV could adopt the Creta’s platform, which is modular enough to be used for 7-seater SUVs or MPVs. It is expected to launch in late 2021 or early 2022. You’re likely to get 2 engine options, a 1.5-litre oil burner which makes 113PS/250Nm of max power and torque figures, or a 1.5-litre petrol churning 113PS/145Nm of peak power and torque figures respectively and both engines will be available with manual or auto transmissions. The new Hyundai MPV is expected to be priced roughly between Rs 9 lakh and Rs 14 lakh.
