Hyundai Creta facelift
Hyundai Creta is already a big hit in the market but now Hyundai Creta facelift will be introduced globally towards the end of the year, and it is expected to make its way to the Indian market eventually, likely towards the end of 2022 or in the first half of 2023. The changes are largely centered around the exterior design. The engine and transmission combinations are expected to remain unchanged over the current version.
Hyundai Kona facelift
The facelifted Hyundai Kona EV will also make its way to India soon, possibly in the second half of this year. The updated version of this electric SUV had its global debut back in 2020, featuring design alterations and changes to the equipment list. The upcoming India-spec version of the Kona EV facelift is expected to be loaded with 39.2 kWh battery option.
Hyundai Ioniq 5
Hyundai has confirmed that Ioniq 5 will launch in India this year. The electric crossover is expected to be brought to Indian shores through the CBU import route, in limited numbers. There are three battery options on offer internationally – 58 kWh, 72.6 kWh, and 77.4 kWh – all available in RWD and AWD configurations. It is not yet revealed which variant will go on sale in India.
New-generation Hyundai Tucson
The latest-generation Hyundai Tucson had its global unveiling back in 2020. The new-gen version has a completely different design, following the ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy. Following the generation change, the India-spec Tucson could also get a hybrid powertrain option.
New-generation Hyundai Verna
Hyundai is currently working on the next-generation version of the Verna sedan, which has been spotted in Hyundai’s home country. The next-gen Verna is expected to have a sharper design and slightly larger dimensions, along with additional features. The powertrain options remain a mystery currently.
No doubt the enthusiasts and laypersons would look ahead impatiently for these wonderful machines to burn the Indian roads soon but then given the unpredictable nature of the market and circumstances there might be a change in the unveiling program.
But, it would be worth the wait.
