India is definitely the most specific car market in the world. This country is characterized by huge population and lots of urban areas that are overpopulated. Therefore, most people prefer motorcycles and super-small cars. Hyundai is present in this market for decades and perfectly understands the needs of local drivers. So, the 2019 Hyundai Carlino is about to come with design characteristics that perfectly meet these criteria. We are about to see a new, subcompact SUV, which will be characterized by small size and affordable price, as its main qualities. The new models in under development and should hit the market pretty soon, most likely in the next year.
2019 Hyundai Carlino Design
In terms of design characteristics, the 2019 Hyundai Carlino will be a small city crossover. Therefore, its main characteristics will be small size, perfect for traffic jams, which are also great in finding parking spots, so insufficient thing in this country. In terms of mechanics, the new model will share a lot of things with Creta. It will ride on the same platform but feature even smaller dimensions. The overall length will be less than four meters, so you can imagine how small this vehicle will be.
How will 2019 Hyundai Carlino look like?
One of the most intriguing aspects of the 2019 Hyundai Carlino its look. As we already mentioned, this will be a crossover designed especially for the Indian market. Therefore, many experts suggest that its look won’t follow the brand’s newest design language entirely, but that we are about to see lots of distinctive details. This might sound logical, but the more interesting than the front face will be its overall shape. Latest reports suggest we are about to see a pretty boxy shape, something that will provide a rugged look that could eventually be more appealing to younger buyers. Allegedly, the new model will be heavily based on the recently-introduced Styx concept, which came with an accentuated boxy shape, muscular fenders, massive front bumper and grille and headlights that closely resemble brand’s newest design language.
We don’t expect bigger surprises from the 2019 Hyundai Carlino interior. Unlike the exterior design, the inside of this crossover probably won’t feature such an exclusive design. Most likely, it will come with the ix-inspired dashboard design, something similar to what we can see in the new Creta. Still, keep in mind that this will be an entry-level crossover for the developing market, so lots of hard plastics and cheap materials are a certain thing. Also, don’t expect much legroom and cargo space at all, which seems logical, considering the future model’s size. Same goes to tech features, which won’t be numerous, especially in base trim levels.
2019 Hyundai Carlino Engines
Most likely, we will see three engines in the offer for this small crossover. Of course, the first engine that comes to our minds is a 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine that delivers around 120 horses. Most likely, this will be an optional engine. Base models should come with a 1.25 unit, which delivers 109 horsepower.
Besides two gasoline engine, the 2019 Hyundai Carlino should come with an oil-burner as well. Of course, we count on a familiar 1.4-liter engine that delivers around 90 horsepower. Seems like enough power for such small vehicle, especially if we consider its great mpg ratings.
2019 Hyundai Carlino Release Date and Price
When it comes to the 2019 Hyundai Carlino launch, we count on the next year. Still, more precise details are yet to come.
On the other side, it seems pretty clear that the price will be very affordable. Some estimations of 2019 Hyundai Carlino India price suggest around 12.000 dollars for the base model.
