Expected in the market within 18 months. 

Seen here is a rendering of the forthcoming Hyundai i20-based SUV, which started testing in Europe this month. As seen in spyshots, the render incorporates design cues seen on the Hyundai Intrado concept. According to reports, the i20-based SUV will be sold in markets where the Hyundai Creta is not present.

Set to be launched in international markets within 18 months, the i20-based SUV would target markets in USA, Europe and Australia. It will rival the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008 and Fiat 500X in the European market.

The engine lineup would be sourced from the 2017 Hyundai i30, which includes a 1.4-liter MPI engine, a 1.0-liter T-GDI turbocharged engine and a 1.4-liter T-GDI turbocharged petrol unit. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder CRDi diesel engine could also be offered with combinations of 6-speed manual and automatic units.

Hyundai Motor India Ltd. has confirmed that it will launch the Hyundai Carlino sub-4m SUV around 2018, and as a result, the i20-based SUV may not offer a viable business case for the company. Aside from the future Carlino, HMIL sells the i20 Active crossover and the Hyundai Creta in the INR 8-14 lakhs bracket.
