Korean auto major Hyundai will make the global debut of its new crossover model, i20 Active in India next month as part of its plans to bring new products to touch the 5 lakh sales milestone in the country.
“Designed at Hyundai Motor’s Design Centre Europe in Russelsheim, Germany, i20 Active is scheduled to make an official global debut in the Indian market in the month of March 2015,” Hyundai Motor India said in a statement.
While revealing the design renderings of the “SUV looking car”, the company said it has “sporty refinement, with the enhanced practicality and quality” without sharing details.
Earlier this month, the company had launched the updated version of its mid-sized sedan Verna priced up to Rs 12.19 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Rakesh Srivastava had said the company’s “aspiration is to achieve the 5 lakh sales mark in the domestic market” and the updated Verna would play a significant role in achieving the milestone.
In order to achieve the target, he stated HMIL has lined up a slew of products for this year, including models in new segment.
The i20 Active will be competing with the likes of Toyota Etios Cross and Fiat Avventura in the newly emerging premium hatchback-crossover segment in India.
