Hyundai Motors took the wraps off the next-generation ix25 SUV (Creta) earlier this year at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. It is to be noted that Hyundai ix25 is the successor of Hyundai Creta in India. Yes, you read it right. The launch of Hyundai ix25 i.e. will take place sometime in the year 2020 and will be available as either a five-seater or a seven-seater configuration. However, before the launch, specification of the next-generation ix25 SUV (Creta) has been revealed.
According to a report of Autocar India, the ix25 SUV will measure 4,300mm in length, 1,790mm in width and 1,622mm in height. The wheelbase of the ix25 SUV will be 2,610mm.
