Hyundai’s 7-Seater MPV Leaked! Find Out Top Specs, USPs Of Hyundai Custo
The auto industry was undergoing a slow down when the pandemic hit. The lockdowns imposed by the pandemic kind of dealt a death nail for the auto sector. All the supply chains were disrupted and auto manufacturers could do nothing to take advantage of the surge in demands. As the world eases into the pandemic, and we learn to live with the virus, automakers are also gearing up for a better future.
With the same zeal in mind Hyundai, the South Korean multinational has unveiled a new MPV, Custo.
The exterior of Hyundai Custo unveiled
The MPV, which is supposed to hit Chinese markets in the upcoming months, was unveiled on the official Sina Weibo page. The Custo seems to have been blessed with a sleek design. At the front, we can see a pair of dagger-shaped headlamps, along with a massive front grille. The grille sports 3D mesh elements which have been integrated with LED DRLs.
The front bumper can be seen with the fog lamps and turn indicators, with chrome surrounds. Sides are bestowed with a set of beautiful dual-tone alloy wheels, seated within slightly-flared, squarish wheel arches. The MPV gets a sliding rear door that is long enough to ease ingress/egress into the third row. The rear section of the vehicle dons a single-piece design for the taillights, with a bold Hyundai badging in the center.
The interior of this new Hyundai is yet to be fully revealed.
A steering wheel is a butterfly-style unit with steering-mounted controls. The vehicle will have a 2+2+3 seating configuration, featuring captain chairs in the second row and bench seats in the third row. Also, the company has done away with levers in the center console, and the transmission and parking brake will be operated via buttons.
Hyundai Custo will come with a 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine under the hood which is rated at 167 PS. Along with that, a 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine is also expected to be offered, which will likely develop 233 PS. Sadly, there is a possibility that the Custo will likely remain a China-only model, and other countries might completely miss it.
