Information about the preparations for the release of the new compact SUV Hyundai appeared in 2018. Now the corporation reported the first details and model name – Hyundai AX.

It is assumed that the new product, which in the model line of the brand will take a place below the smallest Hyundai Venue SUV, will be assembled at the new enterprise of the Korean corporation in South Korea. Each year, the plant will produce up to 70,000 such cars.

The basis of the Hyundai AX will be the K1 platform from the new generation Hyundai Santro hatch. The model is equipped with a four-cylinder 1.1-liter naturally aspirated engine with a capacity of 69 horsepower. It combines with a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission.

 It should be emphasized that, first of all, the subcompact SUV is focused on the car market of India. For this reason, it is possible that he will make his debut in this country. According to experts, the main competitors of the new items will be Renault Kwid and Maruti S-Presso. Surely, the cost of new items will be slightly higher than their competitors, however, it will differ in a richer layout.
