The Hyundai QXi is now arguably the most anticipated launch of 2019. And for the first time, we have an official teaser from Hyundai in which SUV is seen wearing camouflage and leaving the Chennai plant for testing on the ECR. The first thing you will notice is that even with the camouflage on, it looks like a scaled down Creta. The new family grille, the A-pillar, roofline and the window lines are straight out of the Creta’s design book. This is good news for a lot of potential buyers as the Creta’s design has been appreciated by a majority of the car buying population.

Looking a bit into the details, the front of the SUV gets a big trapezoidal grille which is flanked by slim turn indicators. The headlamps are tucked away into the bumpers along with square-shaped good-looking and bright DRLs. The ORVMs might get body colour covers but will miss out on turn indicators.

On the side, the silhouette with a sharp bonnet, a riding window line and a fat C-pillar sure help it look like an SUV with the roof-rails adding a bit of toughness. At the back, the QXi could feature LED taillamps while other details are covered with a thick layer of camo. In terms of size, the QXi will be as large as the Brezza, but with a less boxy shape.

The Hyundai QXi will come loaded with features, as we have come to expect from Hyundai in the past. It wil likely come equipped with automatic climate control, touchscreen infotainment system, rear AC vents, steering-mounted audio controls, cruise control and an electric sunroof. Powering the SUV will be a new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor which is expected to produce 120PS of power and 170Nm of torque. The diesel option is expected to be a 1.4-litre diesel from the Elite i20 with 90PS and 220Nm. The big news though is that it could be offered with a dual-clutch gearbox, which in a sub-11 lakh SUV is a big deal.

Hyundai could launch the QXi by May 2019 itself with a price range of Rs 7.5 lakh to Rs 11 lakh. What are your expectations form the Hyundai QXi? Let us know in the comments below.
