It is codenamed "green baby," and it is Hyundai's
answer to the Toyota iQ
. A Hyundai Europe insider hinted that the car could be funkier and "more basic and functional" than the iQ
. The iQ Concept had a pretty neat interior, but there really isn't much space between it and the backstop of basic transportation - at least, not when it comes to anything you'd want to sit in.
Drivetrains and engines haven't been discussed, but the 12-valve 4-cylinder with 66 hp from the i10 would probably be in the cards. Hyundai has said that i10 is too small for the U.S., so the even smaller "green baby" will probably be offered only in Europe at first, and could be on sale by as soon as next year.
