SPECIFICATIONS

Speaking of the line-up, the local range has mainly remained the same. However, for the updated line-up, Hyundai SA has ditched the previous range-topping model, the Glide, and replaced it with the N Line. Entry-level and mid-tier spec remains Motion and Fluid, respectively.

As standard, the Motion models feature, among other items, halogen headlamps, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display, manual air conditioning, and a rear-view camera system supplemented by park distance sensors. Driver and front passenger airbags are included. The 1.2-litre and 1.0-litre Motion models ride on 15- or 16-inch steel wheels, respectively. 

The Fluid upgrades to LED headlamps and daytime-running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, and features six airbags. The range-topping N Line model gains LED projector headlamps, LED rear combination lamps, artificial leather upholstery (the other models feature cloth), mood lighting, a sunroof and drive mode select.

POWERTRAINS

Two engine and transmission options are available. The base-spec Motion is the only model available with the South Korean carmaker’s 1.2-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, producing 61 kW and 115 Nm of torque, and a five-speed manual gearbox. Hyundai says this model has an average fuel consumption figure of 6.5 L/100 km. 

Bar the top-tier N Line derivative, which exclusively has a seven-speed DCT; the remaining models (Motion included) are available with a six-speed manual ‘box or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission coupled with a 1.0-litre turbocharged engine. The petrol motor produces 88 kW and 172 Nm, the latter available from a lowly 1 500 r/min. The six-speed manual derivatives have a claimed fuel consumption figure of 6.5 K/100 km, and the DCT variants 6.9 L/100 km.
