Gets a rear disc brake in addition to several other features.
An Indian Autos Blog reader snapped the Hyundai Elite i20 Cross, which is expected to go on sale in India early next year.
Our reader notes the following features/changes that were present on this test mule. The front fascia sports projector headlights and LED daytime running lights (much like the i20 for Europe), redesigned foglights, a new bumper which is sure to get plastic cladding and a skid guard.
The side profile shows features like the roof rails, the new alloy wheel pattern, side body cladding, a slight increase in ground clearance compared to the Elite i20 and rear disc brakes. A new design for the rear bumper will round up the changes to the exterior of the Elite Cross.
Inside, minor changes are expected in the seat upholstery and center console, which was camouflaged on this test mule.
The Elite Cross is expected to be powered by the same 1.2-liter petrol and 1.4-liter diesel engines that are seen on the Elite i20. Later next year, Hyundai will launch its ix25 compact SUV.
