  1. I am really confused by the launch of compass. Yes,I know Jeep is "the brand" and what its known for. Initially I was so much excited with the news that Compass will be launched around the price of Fortuners and all. But I am definitely disappointed with the power they have given in variants. What do you suggest if I should go for the range of 15 to 18 lacs, Creta or Compass? And what if I go up to 22 to 25 lacs, Fortuner or compass top model?
  2. There was news earlier that Hyundai was planning a compact SUV but now it looks its already in the next phase. Here are some shots of a test mule that was caught testing in South Korea. This definitely looks like the compact SUV that Hyundai was talking about. The trest mule does wear the Hyundai badge. This one will surely be coming to India as it is a very important market for Hyundai. This will directly take the fight to the Ford Ecosport, Renault Duster and Nissan's Terrano. The compact SUV market will see lots of action in the next year or so. Here are the pictures Pics Source: blog.naver.com

  4. Well the next i10 has been spotted testing all over including India but here are pics of another Hyundai Prototype hatch testing in Korea. Its longer than the i10 for sure. That brings a thought to mind. Could this be the next generation i20 that has already started testing. It could be possible. Anyways here are the pictures. Souce: Blog.naver.com
  5. Hello guys, I am in a dilemma. Was looking for a 5-seater SUV, had zeroed in on Creta 1.6 Petrol, almost on the verge of booking it but then GST rates were announced. In heaps of confusion whether to book it now or wait after GST? I am from U.P. and am unable to find a clear tax structure being applied on new vehicles at present here(before GST), so as to calculate the correct increase or decrease in price myself, post-GST. So if anyone has any idea regarding this situation, specifically Uttar Pradesh(you are more than welcome to post your input even from any other state), please don't hesitate to put down your 2 cents as to what should I do. I have done my homework though and this is what I have been able to conclude, please tell if there is something wrong etc. I am unsure about the present tax structure in UP, whether it is 49% or 53%(see details below). I know it will be 43% post-GST on CRETA (please correct me if I am wrong here too.) Current Ex-showroom price of Creta SX+ 1.6 Petrol Manual in Meerut, U.P. - Rs.12,04,483 Current On-Road price, as quoted by the dealer, in Meerut, U.P. - Rs.14,07,494 (which includes TCS-Rs.12,045, Accessories-Rs.7,200, Zero Dep. insurance-Rs.54,068, Registration-Rs.1,25,448, Extended warranty-10829) Now, 1. If present rate is 49%(30% Excise + 14% VAT + 4% Infra Cess + 1% Luxury Cess), Ex-showroom price, post-GST, will be Rs.11,55,995(Rs.48,488 cheaper) 2. If present rate is 53%(30% Excise + 14% VAT + 4% Infra Cess + 1% Luxury Cess + 2% CST + 1% NCCD + 0.5% Krishi Kalyan Cess), Ex-showroom price, post-GST, will be Rs.11,25,759(Rs.78,724 cheaper) And, 1. If present rate is 49%, then On-Road price will be - Rs.13,55,251 (Rs.52,243 cheaper) 2. If present rate is 53%, then On-Road price will be - Rs.13,21,690 (Rs.85,804 cheaper) So guys, this is what I have been able to figure out till now, I know its a long post, but if you have even the slightest idea what is going to happen post-GST, in regard to Creta, please help a fellow car enthusiast out. Or if you know about the present tax structure in UP, please tell, it will help in further simplifying things. I am gonna post it on a couple more places too, so if I get any reply from there I will update it here. Many thanks.
  6. Spy shots of the Hyundai Elantra facelift have surfaced online. The front bumper and the foglamps are likely to be revised. Headlamps get new detailing which look more premium than that of the current car. As with most facelifts, the alloy wheel pattern has changed to a more interesting design. The rear of the car also gets slight revisions with the combination lamp getting new elements. The interior would not undergo any drastic changes while the same applies to the hardware as well. The Indian Elantra would continue to use the 1.6 litre 126bhp diesel and the 1.8 litre 147 bhp petrol engines mated to 6-speed manual or automatic gearboxes. The 2014 Hyundai Elantra is expected to make its global premiere towards the end of 2013. Source: IndianAutosBlog
  7. Pictures of the net generation Hyundai Sonata have surfaced om the net. The next gen Sonata might come next year. From the pics the car seems to have a large grille and the Fluidic styling stays. It also seems to bigger than the current gen car. Here are the pictures Pics Source: lfsonataclub.kr
  8. Hi, Our i20 has completed 1 year just few days ago. So before starting the review I am going to write a bit as to how we narrowed down on this. Search Begins - At first we had a budget of 5lacs but then we thought its not sufficient. Then we increased it to 6lacs. Then we shortlisted the listed cars - Hyundai i20, Maruti Swift, VW Polo, Toyota liva. After taking TD we had came to conclusion to buy the Hyundai i20 because its features, space and Comfortable ride. Booked on 15sept 2012. Waiting Period was not much long. Just a few days. Got the delivery on 18th sept. We found the Hyundai dealer very good and friendly. The Freebies we got are - 1.Mats 2. Mud flaps 3. Pen drive 4. Some DVDs and 5. Leather Seatcovers. Driving Experience Ride and handling – Its ride is very smooth with a very light handle helps easy manouvering in the city. The highway driving is not that good. But its good at 80-100 after crossing 100 the steering feels like holding nothing. Space - The space in is great. The Front legroom is very good. And at the rear is same. Its very comfortable inside. Engine –It comes with a 1.2 litre VTVT petrol engine. Its very silent. Its soo silent that sometimes our car is started and my dad is starting is again and again. Then he says something is wrong with the car. Now, Check some pics of our car. Electric ORVM Will post more soon.
  9. Hyundai revealed the Grand i10 in India and at the same time has revealed the new i10 for Europe. Both the cars looks pretty similar except for a few details like DRLs on the front of the European model and the roof rails are missing as well. The 2014 i10 for Europe is longer than the current i10 by 80mm, wider by 65mm and lower by 50mm. The wheelbase sees an extension of 5mm. The Grand i10 for India is even larger than the 2014 Euro i10, though the official specifications aren’t out yet. For Europe, Hyundai will use the 1.0-liter 3-cylinder petrol and the 1.2-liter Kappa2 petrol. A diesel engine hasn’t been confirmed yet. The 2014 Euro i10 will make its global premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show Source: Indianautosblog
  10. Hyundai has started testing the Mistra sedan in Korea. The global premiere of the car was done at the Shanghai Motor Show 2013. It is said to slot between the Sonata and the Elantra. When it comes to outright size, it is bigger than the Elantra but smaller than the Sonata. Though the gap in segments between the Elantra and Sonata is not big, would it make sense for Hyundai to bring this to India? I think it would be pretty difficult to slot the car between the other too and pricing it well would be tough as well. What do you think? Here are the pictures: Source: Indianautosblog
  11. Hyundai has revealed and launched the i20 sedan in Brazil. It has been named the HB20 S.. At first glance, the Fluidic design philosophy is evident and it does look good for sure. It looks like a proper sedan and not a boot paste job. While the wheelbase remains identical, the boot is massive at 450 litres. Should it come to India? I dont think so and for the reasons Its not a sub 4 meter car and will not gain from excise benefits. If there are no price benefits, it will eat into the sales of the Verna. Hyundai cant have two cars in the same price range else one would canabalize the sales of the other. Seeing everyone going for sub 4 meter cars now, Hyundai should prob think of a sub 4 meter Verna
  12. Straight from the horses mouth, Hyundai Motor India CEO & MD Bo Shin Seo has said that HMI will 'soon' launch a slew of products for the Indian market, including a compact SUV, an MPV as well as a compact car positioned between its i10and i20 models. He also said that the launches will be supported by a new diesel focus on the back of HMI's recentinvestments in diesel engine capacity. Speaking to TOI, Seo said the carmaker's Korean parent Hyundai Motor Company has a "very strong line up" and "HMI will launch a small SUV soon. The SUV will come earlier, followed by an MPV", he added. The compact SUV segment has seen a buzz with the Renault Duster becoming a runaway hit. HMI's arch rival Maruti has already launched an MPV in the Ertiga and its top brass have been quoted talking about more products in the compact SUV/crossover category. Other players like GM are planning products like the Chevy Enjoy in the same segment. Source: Times of India Read full article here: http://timesofindia....ow/19266223.cms
  13. Hyundai is working hard to get the new Santa Fe here in 2013. The current car, priced at Rs 23-26 lakh, is very important to the brand, and the Korean company is keen to build on its success. The new third-generation Santa Fe is the latest Hyundai to adopt the company’s now infamous ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design language, but it also gets its own new design dialect, called ‘Storm Edge’. The company says it “captures dynamic forms created by nature during a storm”. The new Santa Fe is clearly more attractive than the current model sold in India; testament to this is the sharper headlight design, the huge front grille and plenty of design flourishes. Internationally, two versions of the new Santa Fe exist. There’s the normal 4689mm (2700mm wheelbase) version for markets where urban agility is more important, and a longer, 4905mm (2800mm wheelbase) version that replaces the Veracruz in the USA. Despite the Indian infatuation with imposing road presence and acres of cabin space when it comes to SUVs, we are likely to get the shorter version, currently being produced in the USA. Step inside and you are greeted by a cabin swathed in a continuation of Hyundai’s new design philosophy. Blue lighting lends a futuristic touch; there’s the layered dashboard design and a classy blend of wood trim and leather abounds. International markets will get both five- and seven-seat versions, although it’s the latter that Hyundai will bring to India. The current SUV suffers slightly from a shortage of head- and knee-room in the third row of seats, and Hyundai says it’s made some improvements in this area (the wheelbase of the car is the same, but the car is longer, especially the rear overhang). In time-honoured fashion, the Korean manufacturer will brim the India-spec car with features. The current-gen SUV already has no dearth of features, and it will be interesting to see what new features Hyundai can add. Overseas, the fully loaded car comes with a self-parking system, a tyre-pressure monitor and a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, and some of these could certainly come here. Under the hood, Hyundai has updated the same 2.2-litre diesel that powers the current car, but has made improvements mostly geared at better economy and lower emissions. Power and torque figures are identical to the current car (194bhp, 42.9kgm) and still class-leading, and that means it is likely to be extremely tractable, with plenty of pulling power. Hyundai also has a smaller 2.0-litre ‘R’ diesel on offer now, and would do well to introduce this engine option in India for a more competitive price point, similar to what Chevrolet has done with the Captiva. A big SUV though it may be, the car-like driving manners of the current model are one reason for its success. The new car also rides on an independent suspension, with a new sub-frame providing additional insulation from the road. These two factors are vital in helping Hyundai find an ideal balance between ride and handling, just like it is on the current car. An interesting fact is that the new Santa Fe’s body shell is built from technology used on the European-market i40, recipient of the EuroCarBody award in 2011. The new Santa Fe’s primary competition in India will come in the form of the Renault Koleos and the recently updated Chevrolet Captiva. Despite being plagued by a dated dashboard design, inferior material quality and ageing looks compared to the other two, the current Santa Fe still manages to hold its spot as the best car in the segment, thanks to its tough build, decent ride and handling, and superior engine and gearbox combination. The ‘Fluidic’ Santa Fe, expected sometime in mid-2013 at an estimated price of Rs 24-25 lakh, could take Hyundai’s success in the SUV segment to the next level.
  14. The Special Edition trend continues and now its an i10 which is called as the 'ITech' special edition to celebrate more than 12 lakh i10 owners worldwide. As expected there are only cosmetic changes in the car.The special edition i10 comes with red accents on the dashboard, doors and aircon vents, while the seat covers will be red and beige. As seen on the i20 and Verna, the i10 also gets a reversing camera integrated into the rear view mirror, along with a remote mounted on the steering wheel that controls audio and bluetooth functions. Exterior wise all you get is body graphics. Mechanically the car is the same. It is available only with the 1.1-litre Era and 1.2-litre Magna variants. Hyundai i10 special edition prices: (Ex-showroom, Delhi) Hyundai i10 Era 1.1 Crystal White (Solid) Rs 4.24 lakh Hyundai i10 Era 1.1 Garnet Red (Metallic) Rs 4.27 lakh Hyundai i10 Magna 1.2 Crystal White (Solid) Rs 4.57 lakh Hyundai i10 Magna 1.2 Garnet Red (Metallic) Rs 4.60 lakh
  15. Looks like the hatch market will see another addition soon South Korean carmaker Hyundai Motor will be launching an all-new compact car in India to take on Maruti Suzuki's Ritz and Swift, Codenamed BA, the new small car will come in its highly accepted fluidic design language and will be positioned between i10 and i20, as against the notion that it will replace the i10. Four people close to the developmentsaid that the new car will co-exist with the i10 in India and will be powered by a 1.1-litre diesel engine and 1.2-litre petrol engine. The project has been developed out of South Korea and over 100 Indian engineers have visited the R&D centre to work on this project. The car is currently undergoing testing in South Korea and is likely to hit the market just ahead of the festive season this year. The new small car is expected to have peak annual volumes of 1.5 lakh units within two years. Rakesh Srivastava, VP- sales & marketing, Hyundai Motor India Ltd, said, "As part of our corporate policy, we do not comment on speculation on future products Source:http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/news-by-industry/auto/automobiles/hyundai-to-drive-in-new-compact-car-ba-to-take-on-maruti-suzukis-ritz-swift/articleshow/18263737.cms
  16. Hyundai is looking to get the new Santa Fe to India by 2013. It will be powered by a 2.2 litre diesel motor with 194 bhp on tap. Internationally, two versions of the new Santa Fe exist. There’s the normal 4689mm (2700mm wheelbase) version for markets where urban agility is more important, and a long, 4905mm (2800mm wheelbase) version that replaces the Veracruz in the USA. Despite our infatuation with imposing road presence and acres of cabin space when it comes to SUVs, we are likely to get the shorter version, currently being produced in the USA. This is the third gen Santa Fe and also carries the Fludic Design philosophy seen in other Hyundai models on our roads. However it gets its own design dialect called 'Storm Edge' Hyundai will be looking to price the new Santa Fe between Rs. 24 to 25 lakhs. Things seem to be hotting up in the premium SUV market with many players joining the game. This is only good news for the customer who will get spoilt for choice.
  17. Hi, I am planning to buy a new Diesel D-Segment Sedan... Well the choices are many like - Hyundai Neo Fluidic Elantra Chevrolet Cruze Toyota Corolla Altis Skoda Laura Volkswagen Jetta Renault Fluence But out of these I shortlisted the following: Hyundai Elantra 1.6L CRDI SX (M/T) 14.85 lakhs Chevrolet Cruze 2.0L VCDI LTZ (M/T) 14.77 lakhs Toyota Corolla Altis 1.4L D-4D 15.3 lakhs *ex showroom Delhi Now there were initially only the first two cars which i like but seeing the brand reliability of toyota, i considered Altis... VW and Skoda are too expensive and featureless and Fluence too is price and styling is too french which i dont like... From the above three which car should i go for? Main criteria: Fuel Efficiency, Features, Space & Comfort... Chevrolet cruze because of the sunroof has a headroom issue for which seats need to be lowered as its not comfy else... Elantra appeals by its style, features and tremendous space inside while altis is too old and dull... Also Elantra pampers me with ventilated seats, bluetooth & hell lots of features along with safety... Cruze offers less than elantra but one good feature i.e sunroof which creates headroom problem and altis looks too plain... Also i am wondering that many say cruze fuel efficiency is quite low around 10-12 in city... Which one should i go for?
  18. Hi Guys, I am in a fix regarding a Petrol or a Diesel Car. Please help me in choosing the right kind of engine. With rising fuel prices, I'm a bit concerned. I am rooting for a Hyundai i20 - Sportz Variant. I travel for 30kms/day. I clock not more than 800-900 kms in a month The BIG Question is should I go for a Petrol or a Diesel??? i20 Sportz On Road Price in Hyderabad. Petrol - 6,75,000 Diesel - 8,25,000 There's a huge difference of 1.5L between the Petrol & Diesel Variant. I even heard that the maintainence, Spares of a i20 CRDI are Higher than i20 VTVT. What do you suggest? Cheers, $@!
  19. Hyundai is readying the replacement for the i10 and proof of this comes from the first-ever spy pictures of the car being tested on Indian soil. Though heavily disguised, it looks longer and wider than the current car and the silhouette of the grille behind the cladding suggests the new i10 follows Hyundai's ‘Fluidic’ design theme. Other clues pointing to this are the swept-back headlights, the low, elongated chin and the rising shoulder line. Top-end variants could get alloy wheels and rear parking sensors as well as fog lamps as standard equipment.
  20. Folks, which is the best budget hatch currently available in the country? The Tata Nano 2012 or the long-in-the-tooth Alto and Spark? I personally like the K10 and the way it drives but the interior and the 1990s styling now look a bit boring as compared to the fashionable new Eon which is again an okayish car with poor driving dynamics. What's your say?
