Indonesia's MPV market is huge and Hyundai will be aiming to cash in on the high MPV demand in the country. In fact, the Stargazer is likely to be one of the first cars to roll out from Hyundai's new Indonesia plant.

Hyundai's new car will be underpinned by Creta inspired platform and will also source bits and pieces from the upcoming Kia MPV (Codename: KY).

The new Hyundai MPV was recently spotted getting tested in the South Korean market. The car can be seen (in the above spy image) smartly hidden inside a full camouflage covering the body from head to toe. It is said to borrow several styling cues from the latest Hyundai models such as the globally sold Tucson and also the Bayon crossover that was launched in Europe in 2020.

Under the hood, expect the model to be introduced with a 1.5-litre petrol engine, shared with the Creta. There may also be a 1.5-litre diesel if it's launched in India.

Interestingly, Hyundai's sister brand - Kia has confirmed the launch of an MPV in India and adding a Hyundai derivative will definitely help the company to cover a wider range of customers. But there is still no confirmation if the model will be launched in India anytime soon.
