That the Korean auto giant Hyundai plans to soon launch a mini SUV is a pretty well known fact. The upcoming Hyundai Mini SUV would rival the likes of Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster. The car has been spotted testing on numerous occasions and what we have here today is yet another speculative rendering of the India-bound Hyundai Mini SUV.
As per the rendering that we see here, the styling of the upcoming Hyundai Mini SUV could borrow plenty from the Hyundai Curb concept. In line with the car maker’s latest design language, the front fascia of the upcoming Hyundai Mini SUV would sport Hyundai’s hexagonal grill and edgy headlamps. The rear could appear even more striking, with a wrap around rear windscreen (a la Ford EcoSport we say). The tail lights could extend all the way into the rear fenders. Dimensionally, the car would slot in between the Renault Duster and the Ford EcoSport.
Not much is known about the engine options but we do expect the Korean manufacturer to offer its new range of compact petrol and diesel engines. One of these motors could be the new 1.0-liter turbo petrol engine, details of which Hyundai unveiled in 2013. Good chances that this engine would steal some limelight away from the Ford EcoBoost 1.0 litres petrol engine.
Hyundai’s EcoSport adversary could make its debut sometime in late 2014. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more on the upcoming Hyundai mini SUV.
