Upcoming Hyundai AX1 Micro SUV to Rival Tata Hornbill HBX
Upcoming Micro-SUVs at Rs 6 Lakh - 2021 Hyundai AX1 to rival Tata Hornbill HBX ?
Hyundai is currently the No1 SUV seller in India with its Creta and Venue doing huge numbers month on month . Thus the potential is huge for Hyundai to explore and get another micro SUV below the Venue for small family and city usage and it is indeed coming next year. Here are the vehicle details and launch information
Hyundai AX1 Design like Venue and Based on Nios
The AX1 micro SUV would be positioned above Nios and below the Venue but will not be a Kwid or S-presso rival but a Tata HBX rival. Hence it would be a micro SUV but a proper crossover and not a hatchback. The design would be boxy and much like the Venue would have the DRLs and headlamps but the round fog-lamps indicate that it would have a Nios-like front. The car would have cladding plus skid plate and roof-rails as shown in the image. It would have 15 inch wheels with the size being similar to the Mahindra KUV100 and upcoming Tata HBX.
Hyundai AX1 Interior
The interior like most modern Hyundai cars would be fully loaded and will have a digital instrument cluster plus a touch screen along with climate control, rear ac vents and possibly the connected tech which is called Bluelink. Space is expected to be the same as the Nios though headroom is expected to be better with the boxy looks.
Hyundai AX1 Engine and Automatic Transmission Options
We expect the same engine options as like the Nios or Aura with a turbo petrol plus a 1.2l diesel and petrol while AMT would be there on the 1.2l petrol while the turbo petrol would be manual. There would be no DCT since it would be too expensive and that is saved for the Venue.
Price and Launch Date
We expect the AX1 to be the next biggest launch of Hyundai in 2021. We expect a late or middle of next year launch during the Diwali festive season while the pricing would be similar to the Aura. We expect the pricing to be between Rs 6-10 lakh. It would be priced like the Tata Hornbill HBX, Nissan Magnite or the Renault Kiger in other words.
