Prior to its world premiere in late August, the first images of the Hyundai Custo MPV have been released, giving the world a glimpse of Hyundai’s latest MPV for the Asian market. Introducing the first in China, the Hyundai Custo is a large MPV whose design and design tips clearly come from Hyundai’s current SUV range. When launched in China, the Custo is just a petrol engine available with two engines and two automatic transmissions.
Measured in size, the Hyundai Custo is 4.95 meters long, 1.85 meters wide and 1.73 meters high, and has a wheelbase of 3006 mm long. While it’s a major MPV, the Custo isn’t quite as big as the new-generation Kia Carnival or Hyundai Star, which is positioned more for luxury.
By design, the Hyundai Custo is sure to attract attention. On the front, it has the same wing-like look as the Tucson, similar headlights, and a parametric gemstone grille that includes LED daytime running lights disguised to look like chrome trim on a large grille. The sides have sharp lines and a patterned finish at the bottom of the door, and at the back there are thin LED taillights connected to an LED light bar. Both bumpers have an artificial sliding plate and the rear doors are sliding.
Inside, the Hyundai Custo follows a fairly minimalist theme, and the simple dashboard layout is complemented by a slim digital instrument display and a vertical 10.4-inch touchscreen. Close eyes will also notice that the steering wheel is the same as the Hyundai Creta, and the MPV also gets a double sunroof. In China, it is offered in seven- and eight-seat form, and a six-seater version is also available that will change the second-row bench to a captain pair.
In terms of equipment, the Hyundai Custo is expected to have ambient lighting, leather upholstery, seats with ventilation and massage functions, entertainment displays for second-row passengers, multi-zone air conditioning, power sliding rear doors, 360-degree cameras, keyless entry and start-up and even some advanced aid schemes.
At the front of the transmission, the Hyundai Custo is equipped with a 1.5-liter T-GDI turbo gasoline engine that produces 170 hp (combined with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic) and a larger, 2.0-liter T-GDI turbocharger. petrol 236 hp (combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission). The Hyundai Custo is only front-wheel drive.
It is not known in which other Asian markets the Hyundai Custo is currently sold, but it is likely that it will be targeted at countries where the MPV body model is still popular, such as Indonesia.
