Hyundai is all set to introduce facelifted versions of its cars in the Indian market in the next two years.
Let’s look at some of the cars that Hyundai plans to bring to the Indian automotive market
2022 Hyundai Venue and Venue N-Line
This new launch for Hyundai is reported to hit roads next month (i.e. May). Its exterior will feature the new parametric grille borrowed from the new Tucson. The compact SUV will have its front bumper placed slightly lower, the new rectangular shaped headlamps adding more to its freshly designed front fascia.
It might come with an updated touchscreen infotainment system and a new BlueLink connected car tech. Notably, there are no changes expected to be made under the hood. It will continue to come with the 1.2L NA petrol, 1.0L turbo petrol, and 1.5L turbo-diesel motor options.
Hyundai Creta Facelift
The top-selling SUV from Hyundai is all set to receive its first mid-life update in India. This model is most likely to arrive in the second half of 2022 and will feature Hyundai’s new Sensuous Sportiness design language and the new signature parametric grille.
Design bits will add more to its refreshing looks with new DRLs, an updated front bumper with a slimmer wider air-inlet, newly-designed LED taillamps and a revised tailgate design.
This facelift will continue to feature the 1.5L NA petrol, 1.4L turbo petrol and 1.5L turbo diesel engines.
New Hyundai Kona
This facelift is expected to hit the showrooms towards the end of this year. It will receive a major update in the form of a larger battery along with the existing 39.2kWh battery pack and 136bhp electric motor setup.
It will have a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, updated BlueLink connected car tech, safe exit warning, and blindspot assistant.
This electric SUV will feature newly-designed headlamps, new alloys, updated bumpers, and wheel arches in body color finish. The new one will have less body cladding in comparison with the current model.
Hyundai Ioniq 5
Speculations suggest that the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric crossover will witness a launch in the last weeks of October 2022. Further, the model will come via the CKD route and then be assembled at the company’s Chennai-based plant.
Coming to the Powertrain system, it will include a 58kWh battery pack with a single 125kWh electric motor that delivers a range of 384kms. The electric crossover offers a peak power of 168bhp and 350Nm of torque with an RWD (rear-wheel drive) system.
The company might also offer the Ioniq 5’s longer-range variant with a 72.6kWh battery pack.
Reportedly, the new generation Hyundai Verna is being developed and it has also been spotted in Hyundai’s home country. It will possibly come with a sharper design and slightly larger dimensions.
There is no news about the powertrain options as of now.
