Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Hyundai will currently focus on premium mid-size segments.

The sub-4m SUV was previewed as the Hyundai Carlino concept at the Auto Expo 2016.

Mr Koo said:

The subcompact SUV is a very interesting concept. We are looking at it very closely. It will take another three-four years to hit the market, Each market has its speciality. For China, it is Elantra-size vehicle, For Russia, it is the Verna. For India, a compact SUV is very apt.

Most of the SUV’s core development will be handled by HMIL’s engineers, so as to develop the model with special focus on Indian customers. The sub-4m SUV was previewed as the Hyundai Carlino concept at the Auto Expo 2016.
