The Hyundai portfolio will see 8 new models by 2020. This includes the company’s entry into three new segments as well as updates for the complete current range over the next three years. Of these, two of them, the 2017 Grand i10 and the 2017 Xcent were launched on February 6 and April 20 respectively.

Their most important launch will be a compact SUV which will be based on the Carlino concept that was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo.  It is expected to debut in 2018 and will take on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V, Mahindra TUV300 and the soon-to-be-launched Tata Nexon. This is a burgeoning segment in the Indian market, thanks to our buyers also jumping onto the global SUV craze.     

The other big arrival is a hybrid model from their Ioniq brand. The Ioniq is Hyundai’s new hybrid family of cars and is their entry into the world of green motoring. The South Korean automaker has already announced that it will debut at Delhi 2018. In this regard,  Hyundai also held dealer and customer camps for the same last month where the responses to this new entry were quite positive. Reports also suggest that it will locally assembled to keep prices competitive.

There will also be an entry-level B segment hatchback which is likely to revive the famous Santro moniker once again. It will be their competitor for the entry-level B-segment to take on the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Wagon R, Tata Tiago and facelifted Chevrolet Beat. Looking to take advantage of the history and legacy of the Santro moniker, this car will be positioned in between the Eon and Grand i10. With first time buyers coming in with bigger budgets, it seems like a good time to bring in a new model here.

Also expected in the pipeline will be generation changes for the Xcent, Grand i10 and Elite i20 as well as the Creta by 2020. The Elantra and Tucson, both of which are new models, are likely to undergo facelifts in 2019. Finally joining the family is an all-new Verna C-segment sedan which will debut here in August.
