Hyundai India is nowhere different from any manufacturer, as it has also got some exciting products to display at the biggest national automobile show. Hyundai will be right next to the Maruti Suzuki with its versatile range of new models. We expect the company to bring the facelift model of the popular ones like Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Elite i20 and Hyundai Creta. Apart from this, the line-up may also include an electric car.
Take a look at the exciting list of expected list of Hyundai cars to be showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo.
The all-new Hyundai Kona has already been launched in the international market and the company is planning to bring it to the Indian market via Auto Expo 2018. The new sporty design is expected to attract urban buyers, as it has been inspired by the Hyundai’s latest design philosophy that also underpins the Hyundai i20. The hatchback gets a crossover-ish design that allows it to compete against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Ford EcoSport and Honda WR-V.
Hyundai Elite i20 facelift
Hyundai is set to bring in the refreshed version of its premium hatchback, Elite i20. It has been due for an update for some time now, which has witnessed a recent drop in its sale numbers. It is undoubtedly the right time to introduce the facelift model in order to maintain its high standards in sales. It is expected to receive certain makeovers visually, while the same engine would drive it.
Hyundai Creta facelift
Hyundai Creta has proved to be a premium SUV, for its modern design and comfortable ride. Looking to keep up the momentum, Hyundai may introduce the facelift Creta at the Auto Expo. Besides making it more stylish, the company may look for changes to make it fuel-efficient as well.
The most awaited family hatchback, Santro is likely to make its way back to the Indian market after being discontinued for years. It is expected to be the most attractive entry-level car at the event. With a simple compact design of the Santro, the company may provide it with a new look. The iconic hatchback will be placed under the Hyundai Grand i10 in the company’s portfolio. Amidst so much competition, expect it to come out with flying colors.
Hyundai Ioniq EV
With so much talk going around for electric mobility, Hyundai is expected to showcase the Ioniq electric sedan at the biggest event in the country. This may well decide the future of Hyundai EVs in the country. The EV is already on sale in the global market and if you want to know more about it, look for the car on Autoportal.com. It offers a claimed driving range of 200km on a single charge. If this car comes to India, it will set the perfect platform for other manufacturers to consider bringing EVs to the country.
With a very unique and versatile lineup of cars, Hyundai may be the sole attracter at the Auto Expo this year. Most of the cars are expected to be the facelift of the popular ones, which will turn out to be the right step from the manufacturer. Moreover, the chances of electric cars being so huge, it will be an interesting event to look out for.
