Hyundai QXI, rival to Vitara Brezza, spotted again

Hyundai QXI, rival to Vitara Brezza, spotted again

-    The all-new QXI is the new sub-four metre product from Hyundai.

-    Will rival the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon.

-    Expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2019.

Hyundai will reveal a new sub-four metre in India soon which is codenamed the QXI. It is Hyundai’s take on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon and is slated to arrive in the markets by the first quarter of 2019, perhaps by March. The Hyundai QXI was spotted once again doing high-speed testing at the Salem-Coimbatore highway. 

If the rumours are to be believed, Hyundai might adopt Styx moniker for the new sub-four metre SUV. The test mule was also spotted in July in Death Valley, California.  Based on everything we have seen so far, we can safely say that the styling of the QXI will have Hyundai’s new design language. 

So it will have the new cascading grille up-front which will be flanked by sleek headlights akin to the one seen on the new-gen Santa Fe. The headlamps will be the two-tier headlamp unit with a sleek unit on top with LED DRLs. The fog lamps will be positioned further down the bumper. Being a crossover, there will be body cladding all around the vehicle. The silhouette seems to be a scaled-down Creta; even the rear will have a similar tailgate. A new stylish alloy wheel design is also expected to be part of the package to go with the overall looks.

On the inside, Hyundai will lend the cabin with all the bells and whistles expected from the segment. There will be a touchscreen infotainment system dominating the dashboard and we expect to see Creta-like elements inside the cabin. Powering it might be the same powertrain as the Elite i20. So we expect a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel under the hood. Transmission could be a five- or six-speed manual with the probability of an AMT as well which debuted in the Santro.

The all-new QXI is one of the eight new products from Hyundai which will arrive in India by 2020. These new products will include the new-gen Santa Fe, updated Elantra apart from the new generation of the Grand i10, Xcent, Elite i20, and the Creta. Meanwhile, Hyundai will also bring in the first Kona EV to India, which will be locally assembled at the carmaker’s Tamil Nadu facility. 

When it arrives in India next year, Hyundai is expected to price the QXI in the range of Rs 7-10 lakhs.
