China-bound Hyundai Custo teaser images are out

KUALA LUMPUR: Hyundai’s upcoming seven-seater SUV, the Custo, is set to make its global debut soon. But before that, here we have some official teaser images revealing the minivan’s silhouette that provides us a good idea about its size and design cues. Developed by Beijing Hyundai, the all-new Custo MPV will be exclusively available in China.

Coming back to the teaser, it shows the MPV’s front end dominated by a large radiator grille. It is the most attractive design element of this futuristic people-hauler. The three-row SUV also carries some Tucson-inspired elements like intricately designed headlights and the rear light bar, however, the tail lights feature a different C-shaped styling. The sliding doors on the sides and a flat roofline give us an impression of the Kia Carnival.

As far as the interior is concerned, the South Korean automaker is yet to reveal the details, although we can expect both 6- and 7-seater options on offer packed with several creature comforts.
