Promoted by the Hyundai Carlino concept at the Auto car expo 2016, it is unclear if the production-spec QXi will source the Carlino’s boxy styling or a feature an updated iteration of Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design language. One of the obvious reasons why  the Hyundai is keeping the length under 4 meters is to take the advantage of the ‘small car’ tax benefits, which is expected to be redundant when GST prevails, leaving an option to extend the length for a better knee room and boot space.

As for taking about automobiles the engine lineup, reports suggest that the Hyundai QXi will have a choice between a 1.0L T-GDI turbocharged petrol engine sourced from the Euro-spec Hyundai i20 and also the India-spec Elite i20’s 1.4-litre U2 CRDi four-cylinder diesel engine. It’s highly unlikely that Hyundai QXi will get an AWD system, so the transmission will send power to the front wheels, like a Creta.

Speaking of the Creta, QXi will slot underneath the Hyundai’s top selling SUV in India. It will rival the likes of Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and a possible Jeep Hyundai sub-4m B- suv.
