Hyundai Motor India aims to strengthen its SUV product lineup in coming years. The information comes from SS Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India while speaking to an online media publication. The South Korean carmaker is all set to launch the 7-seater Creta during this Diwali season. Its production-ready version is reported to debut in April, 2021. If reports are to be believed, the company might also bring in the Hyundai Palisade SUV to challenge MG Gloster and the Skoda Kodiaq.
