i20 N Line

This will be Hyundai’s first N Line product in India which could hit the roads later this year. 

It has been spotted in test drives which give away some sporty cosmetic updates. 

It will feature two-tone 17-inch alloy wheels, a new front and rear bumper design, a black grille and a prominent N Line badge, 

At the rear it gets a diffuser-style bumper, a triangular fog-light and a chrome twin-exit exhaust.

Coming to interiors, it will sport a bespoke steering wheel, metal pedals, red stitching  throughout along with a N-branded leather gear knob.

It is expected to be priced at around Rs 25 lakh and will be running on a 1.0-litre TGDi turbo-petrol engine with power output of 120 PS and 172 Nm peak torque.

Alcazar

This is a 7-seater SUV based on the top selling hit Creta.

It has a wheelbase of 2,760mm, making it the largest in its segment offering plenty of legroom and interior space.

The petrol variant is powered by 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine which will put out 159 Ps and has 192 Nm of torque 

The diesel variant is powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine which has 115 Ps and torque of 250 Nm.

Each is mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox.

AX1 Micro SUV

This is a codename for a new product it is developing for the Indian market. 

It will be positioned as a small-sized and affordable SUV below the Venue to rival the Tata HBX (codename of Hornbill) and Maruti Suzuki Ignis.

It has a boxy design with a rugged look.

The test models have been spotted with functional roof rails, diamond-cut alloy wheels, LED tail lamps, and C-pillar mounted rear door handles.

It could run a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor under the hood with output of 83 PS power and 115 Nm torque.

The same is featured in the Grand i10 Nios and the new-gen i20

It could tentatively arrive this October and could be priced in the range of Rs 5.5-8.5 lakh.

Santro Facelift

In an effort to topple the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R’s hatchback dominance, Hyundai will introduce a facelift to its Santro.

The facelift will include cosmetic updates including the front fascia, grille and headlamps.

But there will be no change to its 1.1-litre four-cylinder petrol engine (69 PS/99 Nm).

It could also borrow some design elements from the Grand i10 Nios.
