Hyundai’s new i20 Active SUV, spied testing February and teased in sketches earlier this month, has now been been revealed.

Developed specifically for the Indian market, the i20 Active enters as a jacked-up and enhanced version of the regular new i20 hatch launched earlier this year in overseas markets.

As a compact SUV, the i20 Active gets a taller suspension package, ruggedised guard protection and new bumpers with small skid plates at both ends.

The i20 Active will be offered in front-wheel-drive form only, making it more of a tall hatch than a genuine ‘suburban utility vehicle’.

Powertrain options in India will include five-speed manual 66kW/220Nm 1.4 diesel and a six-speed manual 61kW/114Nm 1.2 petrol units.

A wider launch for the i20 Active is not expected to occur, with Hyundai believed to be developing a uniquely styled compact SUV for Europe and other western markets.

Reports suggest we can expect the recent Intrado concept to provide inspiration for the new model, although China’s new ix25 SUV could also offer a few clues.

Watch for Hyundai to make its assault on the hugely popular compact SUV market in the next year or two.
