Hyundai Tucson to Be Showcased at 2016 Auto Expo
The 3rd generation Hyundai Tucson will be unveiled in India at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo with a launch slated to follow later on in the year. The premium compact SUV was sold in India for a brief spell of 5 years between 2005 and 2010 but was taken of the shelves due to poor sales performance. However, with the premium SUV segment gaining considerable traction over the last few years, the South Korean manufacturer will make its comeback in the segment with the latest iteration of the Tucson.
Hyundai i20 Sport With Turbo Engine Launched in Germany; May Come to India
Hyundai has unveiled the i20 Sport special edition model with a powerful engine in Germany. While it's still early days, the hot-hatch might make its way to India as well to go up against the speculated Maruti Suzuki Baleno variant which is equipped with a peppier engine and was spotted testing in Kochi in Kerala recently.
Developed at Hyundai's German technical centre in Russelsheim, the Kappa T-GDI engine in the Hyundai i20 Sport is a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit which is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The engine is equipped with a single-scroll turbo and delivers 120bhp of power and 172Nm of torque.
The more powerful Baleno variant also has similar specs in terms of its engine – a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged Boosterjet petrol motor which develops 110bhp of power and 170Nm of torque. The hatchback is likely to come with a 5-speed manual transmission.
Moving on to some of the i20 Sport's features, the car is a 5-door hatch with 18-inch wheels and a 20mm lowered suspension. The car will come exclusively, at least in Germany, in a Polar White paint job with contrasting blue decals. Notable aerodynamic improvements include new side skirts, a rear spoiler, and a new diffuser for the rear bumper with an integrated chrome exhaust pipe.
Standard equipment in the i20 Sport includes intelligent key, push-button start, projector headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights, a greyish-blue interior, etc.
Sales of the Hyundai i20 Sport in Germany will begin from the spring of 2016 onwards with prices starting from 19,990 Euros (14.5 lakh approx.).
Until now, the most powerful i20 model from Hyundai was the i20 N Sport, which is equipped with a 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated engine, producing 115bhp of power and 160Nm of torque.
Hyundai India to Unveil New Subcompact SUV in February 2016
Not one, not two, but a whole family of SUVs – that's the strategy breaking at Hyundai Motor India. I would imagine the idea is to emulate what market leader Maruti Suzuki has mastered in the small car space – one product at every price point that the consumer is operating in – but with SUVs which would earn the company much higher margins.
The love for SUVs is now well established, and it is also a well-known fact that they are the fastest growing segment in the car space. There is also a greater appetite for SUVs now, with consumers ditching logic and moving from hatchbacks and sedans to the sports ute. So what is Hyundai's play you ask? By the end of 2016, the Korean carmaker will make an SUV/crossover available from Rs. 6 lakh all the way to Rs. 30 lakh. And it will be a 5 member family of vehicles – by far the most comprehensive.
At the lower-end of that new family will be the existing i20 Active crossover, which has been well received. While the Creta starts under Rs. 9 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) it is largely seen as operating in the Rs. 11-13 lakh band given most buyers opt for the better loaded variants. This leaves a fairly big gap which Hyundai will fill with a subcompact SUV that will be priced slightly higher than the i20 Active crossover.
The car will be front wheel drive, and will share the small car platform which spawns the i20, Active and Creta. It is also likely to share engines with the i20 Active, and the smaller 1.4-litre diesel from the Creta. Expect prices to stay between Rs. 7.5 to 10 lakh. We expect the car to break cover with a world debut in India – either at the Delhi Auto Expo in February or at an event just prior to it.
The third member of the family will naturally be the Creta, which currently tops off at Rs. 13.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). And that then leaves not a gap, but a wide chasm between it and the much larger and more premium Santa Fe which starts at Rs. 27 lakh and goes to over Rs. 30 lakh for the 4WD variant.
Hyundai knows that while the Santa Fe is ammunition enough to take on the mighty Toyota Fortuner and others like the Chevrolet Trailblazer or Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, it still needs a sub Rs. 20 lakh option. Enter the Tucson – the car I originally pegged as being ideal for India and now a cinch to launch in this market.
While we used to have the first generation of the Tucson from 2005-10, we never did get the second gen that was sold globally from 2009-2015. The 3rd generation car is fully fluidic, and is the baby Santa Fe in terms of looks. The car has been very well received when it first made its debut in Europe at the Geneva show last year, and its subsequent market launch.
It is sold as the ix35 in Europe, and the Tucson in the USA – which is what it will be called here too. It will share engines with the Elantra on which it is based, and prices are likely to start at an aggressive Rs. 18 lakh and top off at under Rs. 24 lakh for all the bells and whistles. Hyundai is looking at the feasibility of launching the AWD version, but for starters we will get the front wheel drive, with the 2.0-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel as likely engines. There will be a 6 speed automatic option too.
The Tuscon will definitely debut at the 2016 Auto Expo, and pricing is likely to be announced subsequently. Hyundai would want the car in place for a pre-Diwali launch in the market. The subcompact SUV though will likely arrive only after that – though Hyundai's Korean HQ is excited at the market potential of this product and is pushing to expedite the market introduction. Once the 5 member family is in place, Hyundai will be well positioned to rule the SUV space in India.
Hyundai Elite i20 Gets Projector Headlamps & LED DRLs for 2016
Hyundai India has released images of the 2016 Elite i20 with new features added to the hatchback and will be one of the 17 models that the automaker plans to showcase at the auto expo next week. The Korean carmaker has updated the model a year and a half after the premium hatchback went on sale in the country, but saw volumes take a hit over the recent months.
