Pa will be made in their new plant, can anyone find out if the production in that plant has started or not, it seems the Pa is slated to be out only at the end of this year. I guess they will start taking the bookings this year and start delivering only in Jan.

Nice find tushky!

Interiors look real good. The first small car in India to have dash mounted gearshifter, i guess!

However, the front-end looks too much like the Civic!

lets hope hyundai launches the car looking like that on the inside - with the dash mounted gear shifter et al

They can kill the other hatches if priced right however pricing is not their forte though

cant figure out if it has ICE , 1 din or 2 din . or does it have at least provision for 2 din . this pic of interior is with a superimposed signature and hence , that part is not very clear. someone please, any guess.

@shatru - looks like a 2 din.
The car looks very nice but I hope Hyundai prices it well. Going by the way they have been pricing their products so far, i doubt that.

If it is postioned below the Getz 1.1, how will it be a 'premium' hatch?

Same Santro engine? If so 15- 20 will be highway figures only. And how it becomes too smooth now, better insulation?

New type of power steering?
Hope the surprise is not the high price tag!

Most probably, will only be having a hole in the dash for HU, like most other hatches.

AFAIK AT model is called magnum, base is delight and so on. some option pack is planned. Engine is reworked, fine tunned. In test cycle it gives milage around 20. New type power steering is something eletric motoroperated new technology, but not EPS and said to be better than eps. Tilt steering is available. more legroom is available for driver as compared to Santro. ICE may come as STD in some models. btw: it's 2 din. Alloy will be as after market and not std. It's premium because of more advace features, interiors, AT, some features are from C , C+ cars, sunroof. car is just not made for India, it's targetted for many cars like fiat 500 etc. Actual delivery may be in Dec. Some new features will be added in Jan at time of global launch. At moment car is in production for both AT and non AT.

From those new pics, it does look good, esp. the interiors. Dash mounted gearshift is a novel idea which is getting more common in the small hatches, as it frees up some much needed kneeroom (no more brushing co-pass knees when shifting gears). Pricing is going to be a real factor here, i hope they get it right as this car has great potential. Maybe 3.30-3.50 max for the base.

I sincerely hope that they dont offer the A/T in just the base model trim, like what they used to in the case of Santro (in order to keep the price under check). I sooo much want a decent hatch back with all the bells & whistles of the higher-end model alongwith the A/T. Lets see what they offer.

Nice pics Tushky.

Hyundai has retained the weird petal shaped instrument cluster from the Santro! Hopefully, the speedo and other displays are different and they will provide tacho across the range.

Is it electro-mechanical? All new VW's and Skoda's (Laura in India) have this new tech power steering.

IMO this car will be a super hit if the decide to put it against the spark

i am not sure if it can beat indica or palio cause the size does matter
