Video – Watch the Hyundai HB20X sizzle
They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don’t find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.
Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
The HB20X was unveiled at the 2012 Sao Paulo Motor Show as a second member to the HB (Hyundai Brazil family). Here is the HB20X TV commercial from Brazil.

The Hyundai HB20X is to HB20 what the Skoda Fabia Scout is to the Fabia – a pseudo offroad version with raised suspension and a rough road package. It is powered by a 1.6-liter flex-fuel Gamma mill that generates 128 hp mated to a manual or an automatic transmission.
In terms of looks, the HB20X differs from the normal hatchback by having a redesigned front fascia with hexagonal grill, new fog lamps, black bezel treatment to the headlamps, plastic moldings around the wheel arches and silver roof rails.
On the inside, the crossover gets sporty pedals, chrome finish for the inside door handles and aircon vents. The seat fabric and the steering has double blue stitching.
