Budget family Hyundai HB20 replenished with new modelsSeptember 9, 2019
Immediately after the new-generation traditional hatchback HB20, the appearance of its cross-version, as well as the platform platform sedan, was “declassified” on the Web. So far, the brand has announced only the official debut of the “five-door”, which will take place in a week.
The budget family Hyundai HB20 was developed specifically for the car market in Brazil. Actually, the abbreviation HB stands for Hyundai Brasil. At first, a hatchback was offered to local motorists, whose production started back in 2012. Then the company was made up of an HB20S sedan and a five-door sedan with an off-road body kit HB20X. Now the brand is ready to offer customers cars of a new (second in a row) generation. The Brazilian Hyundai division declassified the appearance of the new hatchback a few days ago, but now the time has come for other new products. Spy shots appeared on Facebook in the HB20 group Clube Brasil.
“Pre-reform” cars were based on the platform of the previous Hyundai Solaris. According to preliminary information, the new “twenty” have retained this “cart”, which, by the way, has undergone a thorough modernization.
It is also known that the wheelbase has added 30 mm and now amounts to 2,530 mm. Probably, with the change of generation, other dimensions of the car also changed. Interestingly, the “off-road” version of the new HB20 is now called the brand’s budget crossover. The exterior of the new products was made in the spirit of last year’s Hyundai Saga concept, shown at the motor show in Sao Paulo. The second generation HB20, HB20S and HB20X are driven by the new T-GDI liter turbo engine with direct fuel injection. The ethanol engine produces 120 hp, while the power of the gasoline version is kept secret. A six-speed automatic is offered as a transmission.
An ordinary hatchback and sedan also rely on the previous liter Kappa atmospheric “three” with a return of 75 hp. on gasoline and 80 hp on ethanol. Such a motor is combined with a five-speed manual gearbox. The new HB20 will be presented on September 16, but its cross-version will debut later. Outside of South America, this family will not be able to meet.
