Hyundai’s Rival to Honda Amaze Sedan Launched in Brazil, Is India Next?

Hyundai leaves no space left to pounce on the paddock for imprinting its mark, and especially wherever the Honda goes then that cliché becomes a must for this Korean carmaker. Need not to mention, the newbie Amaze had already sparked fire before its official launch and it can be seen as the Hyundai had rolled out HB20S sedan in Brazilian market, where it is more or less similar to Indian fraternity, as also said to be the one of the developing country like us.

HB20S is a stretched version of HB20 hatchback, reclining to that of our i20, and is pitted against the Chevrolet Onix’s extended version named Prisma.

HB20S uses same platform that will be used by its upcoming elder sibling HB20X crossover, and more importantly, new Hyundai sedan measures 4.2 meters in length; henceforth if it really wants to compete Amaze then needs to slash down some of the metals or otherwise sell at a premium price tag, where the first one seems better option and overall Hyundai is also known for competitive segmentation in horizon.
