The first pics of Hyundai Custo MPV have been revealed ahead of its world premiere by the end of August 2021. Have a look at this elegant MPV and know more about its details.
The Hyundai Custo is a large MPV with design and styling cues are clearly derived from Hyundai’s current SUV line-up. The MPV was scheduled for a world premiere at the end of August. It is an MPV designed for the Asian markets and was set to be launched in China. At launch in China, the Custo will be a petrol-only offering, available with a choice of two engines and two automatic transmissions.
Hyundai Custo will get the parametric jewel grille design which includes LED daytime running lights disguised to look like they’re chrome embellishments for the large grille. The face will feature a similar wing-like design seen on the Hyundai Tucson with similar headlights. The sides feature sharp lines and a textured finish for the lower half of the doors along with the alloys adding a futuristic touch. At the back, there are slim LED tail-lights linked by an LED light bar. Both bumpers feature a faux skid plate, and the rear doors are the sliding type.
Interior and Features
The interior gets a futuristic design theme with minimalistic design elements. There is a large 10.4-inch touchscreen in a portrait format along with a slim digital instrument cluster display. The steering wheel is similar to that of Hyundai Creta. In China, it will be offered in seven and eight-seat forms, and there will also be a six-seat version available, which swaps the second-row bench out for a pair of captain chairs.
The equipment list on the Hyundai Custo is expected to be extensive. Some of them include ambient lighting, leather upholstery, seats with ventilation and massage functions, entertainment screens for second-row passengers, multi-zone climate control, powered sliding rear doors, 360-degree cameras, keyless access and start and even some advanced driver assistance systems.
While it is a substantial MPV, the Custo isn’t quite as big as the new-generation Kia Carnival or the Hyundai Staria, which is positioned as more of a luxury people-carrier. In terms of size, the Hyundai Custo measures in at 4.95 metres in length, 1.85 metres wide and 1.73 metres tall, with a wheelbase measuring 3,006 mm in length.
The Hyundai Custo will come with a 1.5-litre T-GDI turbo-petrol engine putting out 170 bhp (mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic) and a larger, 2.0-litre T-GDI turbo-petrol producing 236 bhp (mated to an eight-speed automatic). The Hyundai Custo will be front-wheel-drive only.
