Hyundai is said to be working on a new compact SUV for the Indian market. The new model is expected to rival the likes of the Tata Punch, Citroen C3, Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite.
According to a media report, the new entry-level crossover will be positioned below the Venue in Hyundai’s model line-up. It is expected to go on sale in 2023 during the festive season.
The report also reveals that the model under development has been codenamed ‘Ai3 CUV’. It is also said that Hyundai had evaluated this segment in 2016-17, but the project only received the final go-ahead before the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In 2021, the Hyundai Casper was introduced in global markets. It is based on the K1 platform and measures just over 3.5 meters in length. Reports suggest that the new model will be slightly bigger than that.
