To give style, luxury and performance in affordable price Korean Auto maker beautifully crafted a small wonder for you. I am talking about upcoming i15 hatchback code named HB. This small SUV is based on The Hyundai ix-ionix concept which first showcased at 2009 Geneva Motor Show expected to be hit Hyundai showrooms in the first half of 2013 in a starting price of $ 30,000. It ‘s the biggest competitor of VW Golf and Honda Fit in South American market and Maruit Swift in Indian market.
New i15 hatchback or HB is expected to be powered by the 1.2-liter Kappa2 petrol powering the i10 and the 1.4-liter diesel engine currently propelling the i20 in Indian market and in Brazilian market it will be powered by two engines, a 1.0liter basic version, and a 1.6 liter premium version . This five-door hatchback will be smaller than the existing Hyundai ix35. The HB model will be built at Hyundai’s plant in Brazil with the aim to rollout 100,000 units per year.
At last I would like to say that new2013 Hyundai i15 codnamed HB will take on VW Golf, the most successful car in the history of South America. What you think? Please be open to give your view.
