Upcoming New Hyundai Cars in India in 2016,2017

1. New Hyundai Eon Facelift

Hyundai has been readying a refreshed Eon that should be launched around this year’s festive season. It maybe noted that the Eon has almost failed to leave a dent on the Altos sales performance. However, there is no denying that Eon’s exterior design and its feature-rich interior has a premium touch to it. Now, with the new Hyundai Eon facelift, the manufacturer could be trying to hog some limelight away from the recently launched Datsun Redi Go and the Renault Kwid.

6. New Hyundai Verna

The Hyundai Verna has suffered since the advent of new Honda City and Maruti Ciaz.

The new Hyundai Verna carries a new look, more premium interior, more powerful engines and several new features. While the new Verna could continue to be sold with current 1.4-liter and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engine options, these are sure to get a re-tune. The new Hyundai Verna could also get a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, 120 BHP turbo petrol engine that will also power the Carlino compact SUV.
