2019 Hyundai QXi sub-four SUV interior spied in new photos
The interiors of the 2019 Hyundai QXi compact SUV have been spotted for the first time in a new set of spy images. These pictures do not show much, but this international spec car has all-black interior trim.
The dash and other interior bits are covered but the seats are heavily bolstered and come with adjustable head restraints. There is also quite a premium looking centre-armrest. Space inside seems up to segment standards.
Notable new exterior details seen here are the cascading Hyundai grille, and the split headlamps that have become a Hyundai SUV signature now, seen on everything from the Hyundai Kona to the Palisade. The rear will possibly see a taillamp not dissimilar to the current Grand i10. It has the same boxy, upright profile, much like the Creta and a wide, open glass area. There are two-tone alloys and a shark-fin antenna.
The production version of the Hyundai QXi SUV is expected to be exported in international markets as well. It is expected to be powered by a 1.0 litre T-GDi turbo-petrol producing 120PS and 117Nm, which will most likely be made by Hyundai India locally. Accompanying the turbo-petrol will be Hyundai's naturally-aspirated 1.2 litre Kappa petrol, that produces 84PS and 117Nm. Diesel variants will be powered by the 1.4 litre U2 CRDi motor that produces 90PS of power and 224Nm of torque. It could also get the AMT gearbox that debuted in the Santro.
Reports suggest that about 60 per cent of the compact SUV's R&D will be carried out in India. In addition, Hyundai is also working on a low-cost AMT technology, expected to be introduced next year, which might make its way to this SUV as well. This QXi SUV could play an important role in helping Hyundai compete in this extremely popular segment currently dominated by the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
