Hyundai Test Drives and Road Tests by Car Experts
History, past, precedent, call it what you will, the fact remains that India and Indians continue to view Hyundai as a maker of small cars. All has been hunky-dory in the B and C segments, but the marketplace hasn’t caught on fire with the car-maker’s other offerings. With the Santa Fe, all that could change
Hyundai’s new Eon is a significant car for the Korean manufacturer, and a model which marks a new strategy and approach to the Indian market. For the first time in its illustrious history in India, will there be two products from its stable competing at a similar price point. The new Hyundai Eon is slightly cheaper than its Santro stable mate, but the two cars’ prices overlap across the range. But let’s not judge the Eon that way, and instead let’s look at it independently.
With an all new-fluidic styling and first-in-segment features that should help in prolonging the shelf life of this premium hatchback in India, the new Hyundai i-Gen i20 has been launched in 12 variants (seven petrol and five diesel) and six colour options.
In many ways, the new Hyundai Elantra is the Korean car-maker’s most significant model globally. To put it in context, you need to understand that the Neo Fluidic Elantra takes on the big guns, viz. the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic, in that most competitive market of them all – North America. It’s a battle that Hyundai desperately wants to win, and so has thrown in all the delectable ingredients, including premium styling, a feature-rich cabin and wide variety of powertrain options.
Hyundai has designs on becoming the No 1 car-maker in India. To usurp Maruti’s throne, Hyundai knows it has to fight in the compact segment, which is where the Grand i10 comes in. Smartly positioned between the existing i10 and i20, the new Grand i10 will form the fifth hatchback model from Hyundai. We drive this latest hatchback car, to give you the complete lowdown of how it performs.
Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has launched the third generation Santa Fe at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. The refreshed Hyundai Santa Fe is available in a single engine option - the third generation 2.2-litre CRDi engine equipped with e-VGT turbocharger with prices starting from Rs 2,630,000 for the 2WD MT and going up to Rs 2,925,000 for the 4WD AT, (ex-showroom, Delhi).
We told you Hyundai would be making a compact sedan version of the Grand i10; we told you it would be cheaper than both the Dzire and the Amaze, and we told you it would reprise the ccentnameplate. Well, wee finally gotten behind the wheel of the new Hyundai Xcent to bring you a complete, in-depth road test of the latest challenger in the compact sedan market.
In order to further strengthen its position in this segment, Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has introduced the 1.0-litre Kappa engine for Eon priced at Rs 3.94 lakh (ex-showroom Kolkata). The new 1.0-litre Eon is being offered along with the existing 0.8-litre Eon range and will be available in a single Magna+ trim only for the time being.
Adjectives aside, the new Elite i20 from Hyundai is an all-new car, designed and engineered to take on the biggest global brands in the ultra-competitive hatchback market. We give it the thorough road test treatment to see how the new i20 stacks up.
Four years ago, when Hyundai first launched the new luidicVerna in India, it did the seemingly impossible: knocked the Honda City off its perch as the king of the C segment. The King is Dead, Long Live the King. But that history; today C-segment cars have taken the game to the next level, and Hyundai is the one who fallen behind. We drive the ewVerna, and see if it good enough to beat the best in what is now an extremely competitive and crowded segment of the Indian car market.
Korean carmaker Hyundai has recently launched its much awaited compact SUV Creta with prices starting from Rs 8.60 lakh for the base petrol and Rs 9.46 lakh for the base diesel (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
Hyundai Motor India Limited has launched the much awaited, all new Elantra last month with introductory prices (ex-showroom Delhi) starting from Rs 12.99 lakh for the base petrol and Rs 14.79 lakh for the base diesel variants.
