According to sources Hyundai’s upcoming hatchback (code named AH20) is all set to be launched on October 23, 2018, according to reliable sources. The AH2 has been spied testing in India for a while now, and being touted as the successor to the Eon, it has certainly generated a huge amount of interest.
Much like the first gen Santro (and the Eon), the AH2 will also sport a tall boy design and is expected to be powered by an updated version of the Santro Xing’s 65hp, 1.1-litre petrol engine. It will also be the first Hyundai to get an Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) in addition to a five speed manual gearbox. A dash mounted gear lever is another element likely to make it to the AH2, while a touch screen infotainment system on top-spec trims is almost a certainty.

exit, Hyundai may charge a premium for it, given that it’s bound to be better
in every aspect, and not limited just to the additional features it is expected
to come with. Moreover after having said that, competitive pricing will be key
for Hyundai since the AH2 will be up against formidable entries such as the
Maruti Suzuki Celerio, and the Tata Tiago, both of which are well received in
