Hyundai's upcoming sub-4 meter SUV has been spotted testing once again. The compact SUV is based on the Carlino Concept, which was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo.

From the side, the camouflaged test mule looks similar in design to the Hyundai Creta. At the front, it appears to have a chrome grille flanked by rectangular headlamps. The SUV is equipped with silver roof rails and has ORVMs with integrated turn signals. Earlier this year, a test mule was seen sporting dual-tone alloy wheels. However, this particular test vehicle is riding on steel wheels with wheel caps. 

While details about the powertrains are scarce, media reports suggest that Hyundai's new compact SUV could be offered with a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.4-litre diesel engine option paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. With this SUV, Hyundai will be aiming to take on other sub-4 meter SUVs such as the Ford EcoSport, Honda WR-V, Maruti Brezza and Tata Nexon.
