Hyundai HB20X Crossover

Time has come for us to see the new Hyundai HB20X, a model revealed at the San Paulo International Motor Show. To be more precise, Hyundai-Brasil has developed the model exclusively for this market, showing their gratitude and commitment to one of the fastest growing auto markets in the world. Customers will have the opportunity to see it on the market starting 2013. For example, last month, the automaker launched the first member of its HB family, the HB20, which is a hatchback, and plans are to introduce a sedan version as well, but only next year. The carmaker hopes to meet the expectations of the Brazilian customers and even exceed them. To be sure this will happen they have provided incredible design, finish and great fuel consumption with the new model. All HB models will be built in Piracicaba, Sao Paulo and will be sold through different dealerships.

The crossover HB20X is more suitable for active people, for the ones that want to spend their lives often outdoors. The bumper is new as it features a hexagonal grille. The engineers have provided new headlights that have a very attractive finish. The side of the car makes it look a lot like the HB20, offering a robust design. Thanks to the roof bars, occupants can carry more weekend luggage. To send the power to the wheels, the engineers have provided 15-inch dark gray alloy wheels that make it look even sportier.

For the interior the Hyundai HB20X received sports pedals, air conditioning controls and chrome finishing for door handles. On the steering wheel and on the seats, the model features blue double stitches. So that you know, the production version of the model might be a bit different from the model displayed at the Auto Show, as a lot of the elements are being offered as exclusive. The new Hyundai HB20X will receive power from a 1.6-liter 16V FLEX capable of generating 128 horsepower. This output is being transferred to the wheels through a Continuously Variable Valve Timing.
