Hyundai also has a range of all-new models coming up including a Bayon-based crossover and an Inster-based EV.

Hyundai India is set to move up a gear and accelerate growth in the Indian market with bold investments and new models. Apart from an all-new product onslaught that’ll include a new Bayon-based crossover and an Inster-based EV, Hyundai will also be thoroughly updating its existing bread and butter models in India – the Venue and the Grand i10 Nios – between now and 2027. The first to arrive will be the next-gen Venue by late-2025, followed by an all-new Grand i10 Nios by late-2027.

Next-gen Hyundai Venue due by late-2025

The Venue was launched in our market in 2019, and was updated with a mid-lifecycle facelift in June 2022. The next-gen Venue, when it arrives in late-2025, will be the first model to be manufactured at Hyundai’s new Talegaon factory that it acquired from General Motors in 2023. Internally codenamed the QU2i, production for the next-gen Venue is scheduled to start from October 2025.

Like most generational updates from Hyundai, the next-gen Venue will likely carry over the existing platform and powertrain options, but it will have a completely new top-hat, perhaps inspired by newer Hyundai SUVs like the Creta and also the upcoming Alcazar. It will also likely be more feature equipped, and crucially, Hyundai is expected to continue to maintain its presence in the diesel space even in this compact segment with the Venue.

Next-gen Hyundai Grand i10 Nios due by late-2027

The next-gen Grand i10 Nios, internally known as the Ai4, is still a while away, and will arrive by late-2027. The current second-generation model was launched in 2019 and then updated with a facelift in 2023. Until the new-gen hatchback arrives in 2027, the Grand i10 Nios will soldier on with a series of small updates to keep it fresh against the competition.

The hatchback segment has steadily been declining, and the Grand i10 Nios too has witnessed a decline in numbers over the years. However, Hyundai is surely not abandoning this segment, crucially to maintain its rivalry against the Swift which has reignited the segment in some ways – it was best-selling car in the country in May 2024, briefly taking away the top-spot from compact SUVs that usually reign supreme. Following the Grand i10 Nios, generational updates for the Aura and Exter can also be expected that share their underpinnings with the hatchback.

Interestingly, Hyundai has even been exploring the potential of an electric version of the Grand i10 Nios and the Venue. However, both these projects are currently only in the exploration phase and haven’t been greenlit for development. For India, Hyundai will be betting in the mass-market EV segment with the Inster-based EV that’s set to arrive by late-2026.
