Hyundai's compact crossover SUV is still sometime away but it has already caught the fantasy of rendering artists throughout the world.

The Hyundai SUV traits are evident in the front fascia.

In fact, we started it all! Our in-house design specialist Shoeb came up with the first ever speculative rendering of the mini SUV and now we witness many such renderings from other websites!

The latest addition to the list is from Every rendering points towards the same design direction of our speculative image.

Here is our speculative rendering of the upcoming mini SUV.

Talking about its development, testing of the SUV started earlier this year in South Korea. Given it's dimensions, we expect it to wage a war with the Ford EcoSport which goes on sale in Europe later this year.

The front fascia derives its roots from Hyundai's Storm Edge design philosophy that is used by the new Santa Fe. However the profile and the rear of the car is unlike any existing Hyundai SUV. The roofline reminds us of the Hyundai CURB concept that was unveiled at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.

The SUV is likely to be powered by turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. Both manual and automatic transmissions should be available. Going by what's available to the current Hyundai products, expect the forthcoming SUV to have a tempting equipment list.

We expect the car to debut internationally in about a year's time.
