Hyundai’s Auto Expo 2020 stall was filled with cars that are already on sale here, cars that are on sale in some international markets and cars that won’t be on sale anytime soon.
Hyundai Cars at Auto Expo 2020:
New 2020 Hyundai Creta
The Hyundai Creta was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020 by none other than the brand ambassador, Shah Rukh Khan. The new Creta is based on the ix25 crossover, which is available in China. It gets new features like updated telematics, panoramic sunroof, LED head and tail lights. The Creta is expected to borrow petrol and diesel engines from the Kia Seltos. It’ll go on sale in March.
Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Turbo
A light hatchback like the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios can do wonders in a straight line with a powerful engine. Hyundai could soon offer the Nios with the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine, which makes 100PS of power and 172Nm of torque. This car could launch by mid-2020 with a price hike of about Rs. 1.0 lakh over comparable Sportz or Asta variant.
The recently-launched Aura is also on display at the Auto Expo 2020. The Aura is on sale with price tags range from Rs. 5.8 lakh to Rs.9.24 lakh. It has 1.0-litre turbo petrol, 1.2-litre normal petrol and 1.2-litre turbo diesel engine option.
The Kona electric crossover, which launched last year is on display at the Auto Expo 2020. It costs Rs. 23.86 lakh and can cover a claimed 452km on a single charge.
Right next to the Kona is Hyundai Nexo hydrogen car. Hyundai is interested in bringing hydrogen cars to the Indian market, but the lack of infrastructure to produce, distribute, store and dispense hydrogen at very high pressures is a major hurdle. Chances of Nexo coming to India are between slim and none.
The 2020 Tucson facelift is showcased at the Auto Expo 2020. It will go on sale in the coming months. Currently, it costs between Rs. 18.77 lakh and Rs. 26.98 lakh.
The Hyundai Venue is available at the Auto Expo. It’s available for Rs. 6.5 lakh to Rs. 11.11 lakh (ex-showroom).
The 2020 Elantra facelift with BS6 petrol engine is showcased at the Auto Expo. It costs Rs. 15.9 lakh to Rs. 20.4 lakh.
Le Fil Rouge Concept

Elevate is another concept, which can not only roll on wheels but can also walk like a mammal. The scale model of the concept will not be available in India.
Hyundai Kite Concept
The Kite is an open-top, 2-seater, off-road buggy. It won’t be available in India but is sure a treat to look at.
