The next big launch from Hyundai India will be a compact SUV which will take on the likes of Renault Duster and Ford EcoSport. Though there was some confusion if this product would arrive in India or not, the company seems to have made up its mind about bringing in the ix25. The reason we are so confident about the ix25 coming to India is because it has been spotted testing here quite a lot of times. So, the ones who are considering buying the ix25 as their next car, here's what we have to say about this.
Sharing its design cues with different Hyundai SUVs, including the ix35 and the new Santa Fe, the ix25 will be the company's entry into the fast-growing compact SUV segment in India. The production model of the car will look different from the ix25 Concept showcased at the Auto China 2014; in fact, the car looks like a smaller Santa Fe, based on the new Fluidic Sculpture Design 2.0.
Despite what the rumours claimed, Hyundai's compact SUV will be over 4-metres in length and will take on the Renault Duster and Nissan Terrano in India.
Length - 4270mm
