From full-size 7-seater Hyundai Creta to AX1 compact SUV, here's the list of 4 upcoming SUVs from Hyundai to launch in India in 2021-22.
Hyundai is set to witness an eventful year as the South Korean auto company is working to introduce a host of new important SUVs in India. To capitalize on the roaring demands towards SUV cars, especially the new Creta and Venue in the domestic space, the brand will bring in four new SUV cars, from the full-size 7-seater cars to compact models, in times to come. IndianAutoprovides here a list of 4 upcoming SUVs by Hyundai that are completely worth your heads up. Let’s check it out.
1. Hyundai Creta 7-Seater (Alcazar)
Expected Launch: H2, 2021
Expected Price: Rs 12 – 18 Lakh
Hyundai has tasted sweetness with the Creta which just received a generation update earlier this year. After the immense success of the Creta 5-seater, Hyundai is working on something bigger that is the 7-seater version of the Creta, probably dubbed the Alcazar. Certainly, regarding the new upcoming SUV, Hyundai will make it be significantly longer than the 5-seater version to accommodate the third row of seats and spy shots of the new Creta 7-seater have revealed just the same. With the extended rear overhangs, the Hyundai Creta 7-seater will offer more space on the inside for its passengers.
We expect the new Creta 7-seater to receive significant styling changes to make it distinctive. The new Hyundai SUV will be powered by two engine options – a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel unit. Like the 5-seater car, the upcoming SUV by Hyundai can be had with both manual and automatic transmissions. Once launched, the Hyundai Creta 7-seater will rival the likes of Tata Gravitas, Mahindra XUV500, and MG Hector Plus, etc.
The next model in the list of upcoming Hyundai SUV cars is the next-gen Hyundai Tucson which has been revealed internationally this year. The new-gen Tucson is expected to hit our country by the end of 2021 or early 2022. Regarding the upcoming SUV, Hyundai will offer it with a sharper design to be in line with the company’s Sensuous Sportiness design language, seeing the introduction of a uniquely-designed front grille with a jewel-like set of lights at the outer ends, LED DRLs, diamond-cut alloy wheels among others.
The new Hyundai Tucson will feature a dual-screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity. There will be no physical buttons placed on the dash, except for the engine start/stop button.
Powering the global-spec Hyundai Tucson will be a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that develops 190 BHP of max power and 260 Nm of peak torque. Power will be delivered to the front wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The India-spec Hyundai Tucson will come with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol mill making 182 BHP/ 400 Nm of torque.
Earlier this year, Hyundai showcased the new AX micro SUV concept at the Auto Expo 2020. Recently, the micro SUV has been spotted testing on the Indian roads, hinting at the imminent launch of the vehicle next year.
The upcoming SUV by Hyundai will sit under the Venue in the brand’s global range. It will likely share the same platform with the Hyundai Santro and will come to rival the likes of Maruti S-Presso and Tata HBX.
Powering the Hyundai AX micro SUV will be a 1.1-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that pumps out 67 BHP of power and 100 Nm of torque. Transmission choices will be a 5-speed MT and an AMT gearbox option.
While there’s no confirmation on the India launch of the new Palisade SUV yet, the South Korean carmaker is contemplating the possibility of the same, given the fact that the company is working on the right-hand-drive version of the full-size SUV. As far as the dimensions go, the new Hyundai SUV measures 4,980 mm in length, 1,975 mm in width, 1,750 mm in height along with a wheelbase of 2,900 mm.
Under the hood, the Hyundai Palisade will derive the power from a 3.8-litre V6 direct-injection petrol engine that is good enough for 219 BHP of power and 355 Nm of torque. However, the Indian-spec version might receive a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel motor option tuned to produce 200 BHP and 441 Nm of torque.
Above is the list of new upcoming SUVs by Hyundai to be launched in India in 2021-22. Keep yourself updated with IndianAuto for the latest car news and stories about Hyundai and others in and outside the Indian boundaries.
