According to Car and Bike, the Hyundai sub-4m SUV will launch in India in 2018, following an expected world debut at the next Auto Expo in 2018.

The report states that the production-spec model will not look anything like the boxy Carlino concept.

Hyundai unveiled the Carlino sub-4m SUV concept at the last Auto Expo, which expressed Hyundai’s intent in launching an SUV that slots below the Hyundai Creta. However, the report states that the production-spec model will not look anything like the boxy Carlino concept; rather it will draw cues from the Creta as well as the new 2017 Hyundai i30.

Previous reports have suggested that the sub-4m SUV will pack a 1.0-liter T-GDI petrol engine when it enters production, while a small displacement diesel engine could also be introduced. Apparently, 60 percent of the small SUV’s development will be carried out by Hyundai India’s R&D team.

It will rival established products like the Ford EcoSport, Mahindra TUV300, Maruti Vitara Brezza and the yet-to-launch Tata Nexon. Once the sub-4m SUV arrives, Hyundai will have a strong SUV portfolio in India that also comprises of the forthcoming Hyundai Tucson, Hyundai Creta and Hyundai Santa Fe.
