Hyundai Motor released brand photos of its full-size Custo van on August 5. It is named after the famous traveler Jacques Yves Cousteau and was developed by the Beijing Hyundai Motor JV (owned by Hyundai Motor and BAIC Motor in equal shares).
Recall that the car was announced at the end of July. Custo has a two-box body with a pronounced bow and sliding rear doors. The machine will be offered in a three-row layout.
A seven-seater version will enter the market first, then a more luxurious version with separate second-row seats (that is, a six-seater version) will appear. In the second case, “captain’s” chairs with armrests are installed on the second row. The sliding door provides a 715 mm wide opening.
Van Custo is designed in the current Hyundai style. At the front, a large grille with integrated daytime running lights sections is used. The rear LED lights stretch along the entire width of the body.
The length of Hyundai Custo is 4950 mm, width – 1850 mm, height – 1734 mm, wheelbase – 3055 mm, drom.ru specifies. The car turned out to be noticeably more compact than the 5155 mm long Kia Carnival soplatform.
Inside, a digital instrument panel, a vertically mounted touchscreen tablet of the media system, a push-button selector for the “machine” and a floating console between the front seats are used (there is a compartment for small items under it).
For the novelty in China, petrol “turbo-fours” with a volume of 1.5 (170 hp) and 2.0 liters (236 hp) are certified. Both work in tandem with an 8-speed “automatic”. The drive can only be front.
Hyundai Custo is specially designed for the Chinese market. It will be produced by the Beijing Hyundai JV. Prices have not yet been announced.
