Confirmed: Hyundai's new small SUV will launch soon in India

Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has announced that they are working on an all-new SUV for the Indian market. The manufacturer says that the all-new SUV will enable customers with smart mobility experiences that exemplify the pulse of Gen MZ. It is expected that this SUV is the new Tata Punch rival which was spotted on Indian roads some time back. As of now, not much is revealed by Hyundai about the new SUV.

It is expected that Hyundai is using the Ai3 codename for the new small SUV. Hyundai Ai3 will sit above the Grand i10 Nios but below the Venue, so it will go against rivals like Tata Punch, Citroen C3, Maruti Suzuki Ignis, Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger.

At the first glance, the spy shots of Ai3 looked quite similar to the Casper which is being sold in the global market. However, that is not the case, Hyundai is not bringing the Casper and the Ai3 is expected to have a larger footprint than the Casper. There is a high chance that the Hyundai Ai3 will use the same platform as the Grand i10 Nios.
