The Stonic crossover is based on the same platform as the Rio.

Peter Schreyer, president and chief design officer, Hyundai Motor Group revealed that the Stonic is a good fit for India, but it won’t be here anytime soon. The car features a muscular bonnet and a 'tiger nose' grille flanked by angular headlights and daytime running LED lights.

Also at the stall were the Cerato sedan, Stinger GT, Ceed hatchback, Soul EV, Sorento SUV, Sportage SUV and the SP SUV concept.
