Ahead of its debut, Hyundai has released its first images of the new Hyundai Custo MPV for the Asian market.
The Hyundai Custo is a large MPV that will debut in China first. It shares styling cues with Hyundai’s current SUV lineup.
The Hyundai Custo has a width of 1.85 metres, a length of 4.95 metres, and a height of 1.73 metres, with a wheelbase measuring 3,006 mm.
The grille of the new Hyundai Custo is styled similarly to the Tucson’s, with wing-like headlights and the ‘parametric jewel’ combination of LED daytime running lights that look like chrome embellishments for the grille.
As a result of its sliding door design and edgy body lines, its silhouette is more similar to the Kia Carnival. Besides the sharp character lines on the side body panel, the lower halves of the doors get a textured design element. Diamond-cut alloy wheels with a dual-tone look very fashionable and premium.
Its interior features a minimalist design and looks similar to both the new Hyundai Creta and the ix25. The dashboard is simple with just an instrument cluster and a vertically oriented 10.4-inch touchscreen. Moreover, the faux wood trim on the cockpit, centre console, and door trim adds a luxurious touch to the in-cabin experience.
Hyundai Custo MPV comes with twin-sunroofs as well. This model will be available in seven- and eight-seat configurations in China, as well as a six-seat version, in which the second-row bench will be replaced by captains’ chairs.
With regards to equipment, the Hyundai Custo is expected to have ambient lighting, leather upholstery, multizone climate control, power sliding rear doors, 360-degree cameras, seats with ventilation and massage functions, keyless entry and start, along with various advanced driver assistance systems.
A 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine with 168 bhp paired with an eight-speed automatic and a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with 236 bhp paired with a seven-speed automatic are expected to power the Hyundai Custo.
