It had received good attention at the Auto Expo show floor, thus giving the Korean company the confidence to green-light its production in India.

Internally codenamed QXi, the Hyundai sub-4m SUV will offer a 1.0-litre T-GDI turbocharged petrol engine and 1.4-litre U2 CRDi turbocharged diesel engine. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual, 5-speed manual as well as an Automated Manual gearbox (AMT).
