2022 Hyundai Custo to officially debut later this month
Hyundai is gearing up for the 2022 Custo’s launch in China. Following the release of shadowy teaser photos last month, the Korean marque has now dropped another set of images. This time, however, the photos effectively reveal the minivan in full. The only problem is that they’re quite low resolution. Better than nothing, right?
While the photos give us a better look at the 2022 Custo, Hyundai has yet to officially launch the minivan. It was shared by Hyundai Beijing on the Sina Weibo social media in China to promote the model. The Custo’s official and final debut will take place later this month.
Despite being low-resolution photos, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Hyundai Custo in full. We already got an early preview thanks to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). However, the teaser photos do show the Custo in different trim. Noticeably, there are no black fenders, and the wheels are more stylish. The top view also shows two separate sunroofs. Still, the Tucson-inspired front-end and SUV-influenced styling are hard to miss. With that, the latest teaser photos likely show the Custo in top-spec trim.
Aside from the exterior, Hyundai also released teaser images of the cabin. It features a minimalist layout with a large vertical touchscreen in the center. It can also seat seven, with two captain's seats in the middle and a bench at the back. Customers will likely be able to spec it with 8-seats on lower-trim variants.
There’s no official word yet on the powertrain. Hyundai will reportedly offer the Custo a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that produces around 167 horsepower. It could be joined by a larger mill similar to the one used in the Tucson. There’s also no word what features will be available on the minivan.
With Hyundai not yet revealing everything about the 2022 Custo minivan, we’ll have to wait for the official launch later this month to learn more.
But could Hyundai Philippines actually bring this to the country? Perhaps, since it is eligible for the ASEAN-China Free Trade Agreement. They're also already familiar with bringing in cars from China thanks to the Reina.
