Hyundai Custo Revealed Ahead Of Global Debut
The Hyundai Custo MPV has been revealed completely, thanks to a set of “teaser” photographs recently posted on China’s Sina Weibo social media platform.
If the design of the Hyundai Custo indicates anything, it’s that the MPV must acquire some SUV aspects while still remaining true to its heritage in order to thrive.
The vehicle, which will first go to China before moving on to other Asian countries, appears to be elegant. It has sleek LED headlights, a huge ‘parametric jewel’ radiator grille with LED DRLs, and a bumper that looks like it belongs on a crossover.
The MPV’s attractive wheels stick out on the sides, and it has a decent window area. There are, however, far too many wrinkles that Hyundai could have avoided.
The Hyundai Custo, on the other hand, has a straightforward design at the back. There’s a huge tailgate with slim LED stoplights, a roof spoiler, and a blacked-out bumper with a contrasting-coloured skid plate.
The Hyundai Custo’s interior, like its look, is sleek and attractive. There’s a simple dashboard, a flat-bottom steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster, and a 10.4-inch touchscreen that links to the pretty wide centre console.
The MPV will be offered in 6-, 7-, and 8-seat versions, with twin sunroofs and a slew of cutting-edge technologies.
When the automobile is released in China later this month, two turbocharged petrol engines with displacements of 1.5 litres (167 HP) and 2.0 litres (237 HP) will be offered. The little engine will be partnered with a 7-speed DCT, while the larger engine will be paired with an 8-speed automatic.
The Custo will make its official premiere on the 27th of August at the Chengdu Motor Show, where all of its features and specifications will be announced.
