New SUV con­cept

Auto Today - - Feature -

While the 4SX was a study for a pre­mium hatch­back, the H5X con­cept is also a study for a pre­mium hatch­back, and is much more pro­duc­tion ready that the hatch­back. It is based on the Omega mod­u­lar plat­form that has been taken from Land Rover and al­ready un­der­pins the Land Rover Free­lander that was be­ing made and sold in In­dia. The new ar­chi­tec­ture that the com­pany calls the op­ti­mal mod­u­lar ef­fi­cient global ad­vanced archi- tec­ture will be flex­i­ble enough to al­low for two ver­sions of the SUV, a five-seater and a 7-seater even though the con­cept has only two rows of seats. The SUV also fea­tures Im­pact De­sign 2.0 that is cut­ting edge and if there was a show stealer at the expo, then this came re­ally close. We are ex­pect­ing that the H5X (when it goes into pro­duc­tion later on in the year) will take on the Hyundai Creta at one end and the Jeep Com­pass and the Hyundai Tuc­son at the other.
