As mentioned earlier, the SUV now comes with a new 1.5-litre turbo-engine motor which replaces the older 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol mill.

This is the same mill which will be seen in the all-new Verna and is already found in the Creta, Kia Seltos and the Carens.

Hyundai has also confirmed that the transmission options will now consist of a 6-speed manual and a new 7-speed DCT, which will replace the older 6-speed torque convertor. Hyundai will also offer integrated start-stop tech with the new model

The company has kept the tried and tested 1.5-litre diesel motor unchanged. It continues to make a similar 116.5PS of power and 250Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or a  six-speed torque converter unit.
