After the launch of i20 CRDi, Hyundai is busy preparing for its next big launch in India, the Avante. The Avante will replace the Elantra (production of this car was stopped last year).
The company is also thinking about a diesel variant for the Avante. Sources say that the new Avante will house a 1.6-liter petrol and diesel engine. The 1.4-liter petrol engine used on the i20 could also be fitted to the new car.
Hyundai is looking at providing diesel engines for all cars in its line-up. It stated with the Sonata, then the i20 and now the Avante.
Note – The Hyundai i10, the Santro and the small car GB will also be getting diesel options in the future.
