It has by now become fairly well known that the upcoming Maruti Vitara Brezza-, Ford EcoSport-, and Tata Nexon-rival from the South Korean car giant will be known as the Hyundai Styx. Now, in our exclusive render, we should you what the new model would look like. While the Styx was previewed by the Carlino concept, it won’t look much like the design study.

Instead, it will carry the company’s latest design elements, which will make it look somewhat like a mini-Kona or a mini-Santa Fe. At the front, an evolutionized version of the company’s cascading effect grille will take centre stage. Another highlight will be the company’s composite light setup, which will comprise of sleek LED headlights at the hood level and LED DRLs at a lower level.

The sporty front bumper will carry a pair of foglamps. The lower part of the bumper will feature a faux skid plate. The hood will feature fine creases while the roof will be adorned by sleek roof rails. The wing mirrors will feature traffic indicators.

The Styx will be based on the Elite i20’s platform and will be much cheaper than the Hyundai Creta. Other than targeting the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, it will also rival the upcoming Mahindra S201. Thanks to Hyundai’s tradition of offering best-in-segment features, you can expect the new model to offer an electric sunroof, rear AC vents, cooled glovebox, a large touchscreen infotainment screen, and ventilated front seats.

Prices of the Hyundai Styx will start at Rs 5.9 lakh. While it will be pricier than the Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon, the higher number of features and the modern engines it will feature will help the new model justify the higher price tag.

Powering the Hyundai Styx will be three engines – 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel. All the engines will be BSVI-compliant and will offer a good mix of fuel efficiency and performance. Also, the power outputs will stand at par with what the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, and Tata Nexon offer. Hence, it could be worth waiting for the upcoming Hyundai compact SUV.
