Hyundai H800

There have been countless speculations on Hyundai's forthcoming compact car scheduled for production at the company's facility in Chennai starting next year. While we have officially heard it will be a 800cc car, IAB has understood from its sources that the new vehicle will have a twist of i10 and Santro in its looks. Being the smallest Hyundai you can buy, it will be smaller than the entry-level Santro. One newspaper has even quoted an official divulging its starting price.

The Hyundai H800 could use a 5-speed manual transmission. There is a possibility of a diesel engine on this small car in the future, but during the launch next year sometime in March or April (speculative), it is expected with a 3-cylinder 800cc engine producing about 50hp.

Image manipulator Samuh Yogetta has published his version of the side view of the small car. The front-end borrows quite a lot from the ix-onic concept. The kink as the window nears the C-Pillar reminds us of the i10.

Being a low cost vehicle, will it be eligible for a full blast of Hyundai's fluidic sculpture design language applied on cars like the new Sonata and new Verna? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
