Hyundai has an extensive car range in India. Most of the car is focused and developed for the Indian audience. Still, there are some cars in the international portfolio which should have been introduced to us. Here are 5 such Hyundai cars which we want in India.
In Indian, we get the older generation of the Hyundai Tucson. The new design looks way futuristic and has a different appeal. In India, this car has run well through its life and it does require some design change so that it stands out against its rivals. Being placed above the Alcazar surely will be an expensive proposition but the company has to make sure that they are offering premium features at the starting cost of premium brands. This way the Hyundai Tucson would be the car that people would buy over a base model premium SUV.
Another AWD SUV from Hyundai which we would want is – the Hyundai Palisade. It would be placed above the Hyundai Tucson and would put it against the Toyota Fortuner. The Palisade in terms of dimensions is a bigger car and the last row of seats is useful even for adults. It should come with both a petrol and diesel engine. Palisade if priced close to the top model of the Fortuner – Legender then it would become a great value for money proposition. The only downside with palisade would be the lack of butch looks which are looked up to in this segment. Our review of this car can be found below in video.
Hyundai i20 Hybrid
The Hyundai i20 is a very good car in the premium hatchback segment. With the hybrid, it will become one of the first Hyundai Hybrid car in India. The shift towards electric hybrid Hyundai cars might be the bridge for a lot of people. The Hyundai i20 is expected to come with a 1.0-litre Turbo Petrol engine. This will be accompanied by a 48 V battery system which will assist the engine. Read more about it below
Hyundai Kona Hybrid
Hyundai Kona is currently available in India as a fully electric car. As a regular SUV, it sits somewhere between the Hyundai i20 and the Hyundai Creta. If a Hybrid was introduced under the Hyundai Kona name then it would totally change the way people look at this car It would not seem to be overpriced which now it does and also people who are not comfortable with just having electric cars would buy it.
Hyundai Santa Cruz
This pickup truck is based in Hyundai Tucson. If the new Hyundai Tucson gets introduced then the company should not hold back launching this Hyundai Santa Cruz. It is a lifestyle vehicle that looks modern and has a youthful feeling to it. The price of this vehicle will be difficult to determine. Being a pickup truck it should be priced above the Hyundai Tucson. Currently every brand from Mahindra, Maruti, Toyota, Ford and Tata are all evaluating more lifestyle cars in India and we think it’s time to experiment with this kind of car for the brand.
If we have these Hyundai cars in India there would not be many gaps left in the portfolio where Hyundai could miss out on sales. What do you think? Are there other cars you would want? Let us know in the comments below.
