The length of the car has grown by 10 mm and now stands at 3995mm, it’s wider too by 41 mm, but the height remains unchanged. The wheelbase too has gone up by 10mm which translates into more space at the rear. In fact, Hyundai says that the rear leg room has gone up by 88 mm which is a big improvement over the previous car. There are three engine options on the table – a 1.2-litre, naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel.
