Hyundai to launch new hatchback in India

Hyundai Motor India will launch a family-oriented hatchback in the last week of October with an eye to enhance its presence in the small car segment, according to a senior company official. The company also unveiled the first sketch of the car code-named AH2, which is widely considered as the one that will mark the return of the once-popular Santro model. Hyundai Motor India, however, has not confirmed that the new car would be named Santro and initiated a naming campaign for its upcoming hatchback. Y.K. Koo, MD and CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL), stated: "The first design renders of AH2 depicts the company′s respect for the past and confidence of the future.” The AH2 is a tallboy concept that is aimed to target family-oriented buyers. Sharing details about the product, he had said the hatchback would be wider and taller than the i10 model and would be powered by a petrol engine with options for factory-fitted CNG engines. It will also have automated and manual transmission options.
