New compact SUV and crossover will further increase HMIL’s market share.

This spyshot shows two of Hyundai Motor India Limited’s main launches for 2015 – the Hyundai ix25 compact SUV and the Hyundai Elite i20 Cross. While the former is expected to launch in the festive season, the i20 Cross will arrive in the first quarter of this year, according to reports.

The ix25 competes with the Duster while the Elite i20 Cross will rival the Cross Polo and Avventura.

HMIL sold 410,000 units in 2014 (its highest sales till date), and targets to sell more than half-a-million units in 2016. Products like the ix25, i20 Cross and an MPV arriving in 2016 will be key to achieving that sales goal.

Both cars are reported to come with a localization content of 90 percent, indicating very competitive prices. In case of the i20 Cross, prices are expected to be around INR 50,000-75,000 more than the Elite i20, and with features such as LED daytime running lights, projector headlights, roof rails, new alloy wheels, skid guards and body cladding, buyers could get their money’s worth.
