Fresh on the success of its compact SUV Venue, Hyundai Motor India plans to bring three refreshed products in the Auto Expo besides a new concept for the Indian market, as it targets 20% market share in 2020.

South Korean carmaker Hyundai will be launching three models at upcoming Auto Expo 2020 to be held from 6th to 12th February, including Tuscon facelift, new-generation Creta and Verna facelift along with showcasing some other concepts.

Revealing its line-up, the automaker said it will bring the second-generation of its Creta bestseller with a new 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit (currently available in Kia Seltos), along with a set of 1.5-liter petrol and diesel engines.

New additions also include automatic parking brake, LED DRLs, connected car tech, a big vertical touchscreen system in the cabin and a panoramic sunroof.

Another Hyundai SUV that will be showcased at Auto Expo 2020 is the facelifted Tucson. The upgraded version will come with the BS-VI compliant set of 2.0-liter petrol and diesel engine.

It will also sport features such as LED headlamps and in the interiors, the Tucson facelift is expected to be embedded with additional features such as a new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Hyundai’s Blue Link connectivity features, a 360-degree camera and adaptive cruise control. Both the models are expected to go on sale soon after the expo.

The Verna will also get a facelift and come with the newly developed BS-VI compliant 1.5-liter petrol and diesel powermill engine that powers the Kia Seltos too. The Verna sedan will have significant design changes with wider cascading grille, newly re-worked headlamps and front bumper.
