Regulars here would remember that we reported in detail when it recently emerged that the upcoming Hyundai BA hatchback would sit between the i10 and the i20 in Indian car market. It is even being said that the new car will be launched in our market as soon as in September this year.
It is a very well known fact that the Korean auto giant Hyundai is busy with the development of a new B Segment hatchback and that the new car is headed our way has always been a known fact.
While the Hyundai BA is basically the next gen i10 hatchback, there have been many speculations regarding the positioning of the car in our car market. On one hand, there are reports which say that the new car would replace the i10 and on other, it is being said that the upcoming hatchback would sit between the i10 and the i20. The same reports also say that the next generation i10 would be sold in India with the i15 moniker. These reports also suggest that the current i10, which is fast getting dated, would take the role of the Hyundai Santro Xing in Indian car market.
Now, what we have here today is a video that shows the interiors of the upcoming 2014 Hyundai i10 aka BA aka i15 aka Brilliant (phew!). As can be made out in the video, the new car will have a dual colour theme for the dashboard and like the car, will have a dash-mounted gear lever. We can also see that the car has a instrument binnacle that is similar to that of the new Verna. The car gets a large display for its centre console and infotainment system and it seems like the interior of the upcoming car will definitely be a few generations above that of the current car.
The BA will be considerably larger than the current car and will be sold with both petrol and diesel engine options. The diesel variant is likely to be powered by a 1.1 Litre turbo diesel motor for the diesel variant. This engine will have a max power output of around 75 Bhp and a peak torque figure of around 150 Nm.
The Hyundai BA is also expected to spawn a compact sedan in future. This sedan would sit beneath the India bound Hyundai HB20S based compact sedan and might throw open gates to an all new segment of small sedans.
