Transmission is not specified by the certifying body, about a drive also not a word, however, Custo surely is only front-wheel drive. By the way, the specifications of a local version of the new Kia Carnival also appeared in the base of the Ministry of Industry, so this model will be available for Chinese with the same two-liter turbo engine.

Hyundai itself has not announced a new minivan yet. Meanwhile, next week will open the Shanghai Auto Show — it is possible that there will be the premiere of the Custo.

Outside the Chinese market, this MPV probably won’t make it.
