Default Team-BHP renders the 2015 Hyundai Compact SUV

Link to News Section

A few days ago, a Hyundai compact SUV was spotted testing in South Korea. From the spyshots, Team-BHP's rendering artist, AntlerRoad, has managed to come up with a few speculative renders showcasing how the 2015 Hyundai compact SUV could look like. While one render depicts the Hyundai compact SUV with a curvy rear, the other render takes a boxier route. From the spyshots, it appears that the Hyundai compact SUV could take a boxy route resembling the first speculative render.

The Hyundai Compact SUV is said to be based on a new platform that it will share with an MPV. Both the compact SUV and the MPV models are India bound. The compact SUV is expected to be unveiled sometime during 2014, with the MPV model to follow suit in 2015. The South Korean car maker's current product portfolio has two big gaps as it doesn't feature a compact SUV and MPV. The impending launches of these two new products are aimed at addressing these gaps.

Both petrol and diesel engines could be offered on the Hyundai compact SUV, which will adopt the Storm Edge design philosophy (a variation of the Fluidic design philosophy that's used on Hyundai's SUV models). The Hyundai compact SUV will be pitted against the likes of the Ford EcoSport and the Renault Duster. The MPV based on the compact SUV platform is expected to be a Maruti Suzuki Ertiga competitor. Hyundai had showcased an innovative MPV concept at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo, in the form of the HexaSpace concept (code-named the HND-7).



However, it remains unclear as to whether the new MPV that Hyundai is developing, to take on the Ertiga, is inspired by the HexaSpace. Given the big demand globally for compact SUVs and MPVs, the two new products from Hyundai could be global products (like most Hyundai cars) aimed at car markets across the world. As more testing of the Hyundai SUV takes place in the coming months, more details about the product could emerge soon.

The rendering looks pretty neat to me. As long as they stick to this fluidic design philosophy it'll most probably look good in real life. And there will be takers. Hyundai needs to price some 15k below the competition and they've got a sure shot winner.

Hyundai's Compcat SU Vcoming to India in 2015.

The Korean firm is currently developing a brand new compact SUV that will emerge in early 2015 for the Indian market, the tests for which are currently being done in Korea.


Quote:
Hyundai will offer both diesel and petrol engine options for the forthcoming SUV. We expect the diesel will be either the same 1.5-litre CRDi engine used in the Verna and Elantra or a refreshed engine that will conform to the emission norms in 2015. The platform will, however, be an all-new platform and expect to see it as a concept at the Auto Expo in New Delhi in 2014 or close to pre-production form at an international motor show in 2014.

Does'nt the rendering resemble the upcoming Mahindra S101 a little too much?? Also, other than the multi-slated hexagonal grille, it has none of the Storm Edge design cues seen in the next-gen Santa Fe.

Nevertheless, as long as it has a peppy diesel, high-quality interiors and a sub-10 lac price tag, it will sell in India, no doubt. The nascent compact SUV segment seems to be growing fast, and how!

Also, as observed in the next-gen Sonata scoop pics, then the new i10 official photos and now this; seems Hyundai has finally decided to dump those fluidic lines and adopt a sober approach instead. Not a good thing when it comes to exclusivity, IMHO.

Upcoming Hyundai’s Compact SUV Will NOT Be a Sub-4 Meter Car.

Quote:
Hyundai has already confirmed the development of a new compact SUV for our market.
  • Hyundai’s compact SUV will not be a sub 4-meter car. The Koreans feel they can justifiably charge a premium for that!
  • Its design has been frozen in September this year. First prototypes will be out by February this year.
  • Two diesel engines – 1.4L & 1.6L from its existing lineup will be on offer. And the 1.6L petrol motor from Verna will also be present
  • BS Motoring also shares that Hyundai’s compact SUV will also feature a 4-speed automatic box on the diesel mill.
  • Hyundai is targeting a launch around the festive season of 2015 year

That's good news and a big relief! Possibility of an ugly duckling averted.

Hyundai has always been selling their models at a premium over Maruti models anyway. Pricing was never going to be their advantage; extensive feature list was. We can expect the same even in this case.

I hope they base the SUV on the i20 instead of the Grand platform. Hyundai is not the best when it comes to handling, even with hatches. I can't imagine how a narrow, high-CG Hyundai would handle.

That's too much of a speculation about the "width" of the car. Or have you come across any official renderings or some trustworthy source?

Nice attempt at the speculative render but looking at the heavy cladding on the camouflage, i expect Hyundai might stick to the fluidic design instead of the sharper box type lines.

I was hoping they won't take that route.

The motorbash link indicates that the SUV could be based on i10 or i20 platform. If based on i10 platform, the minimum GC of an SUV would make it difficult for Hyundai to provide decent handling.

The Hyundai SUV Might be called Intrado. (Sounds too much like Chevy Silverado)

The DZire'ish A and C pillars and those tiny wheels conjures up an image of a Swift DZire SUV in my head.

I hope Hyundai hasn't drawn inspiration from Veloster for their compact SUV.

Another Scoop Picture Courtesy hyundaicarsindia.in

still a 2015 launch only. Ford Ecosport competitor means it might be less than 4 meters and equal or better ford in features.

The Hyundai ix25 will be made in China by the Beijing-Hyundai joint venture to compete with small SUV’s such as the Ford Ecosport and the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun.


Design of the ix25 will be inspired by the 2011 Hyundai Curb concept.

More pics surface,

Quote:
Hyundai has camouflaged the exterior completely and also covered the dashboard. But we can see the space of the interior and also some features. The front seats are big like those on the i20. The rear seats are also wide enough to accommodate three passengers and Hyundai offers rear AC vents which will be a big USP in India considering our hot climate. To extract more legroom the rear portion of the front seats has been carved. The wheel base of compact SUV is 2570 mm so we can expect good interior space.

Hyundai compact SUV takes design inspirations from the Curb concept shown at the 2011 Detroit Auto show. The fluidic design language will make the compact SUV more beautiful. The engine line up is still unknown. But can expect both diesel and petrol engines. These engines will be mated to the automatic and manual gearbox.


The Hyundai compact SUV is expected to make its debut at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show in April this year.
