I am planning to buy a car in coming week and I didnt even consider Hyundai. After looking at Tata Nexon and Altroz started hating all other models in competition. Even suzuki is not able to match features and quality despite having same price range. For me its TATA all the way.
We need to buy a CNG car within next month and the old good CNG car currently in market is either Grand i10 NIOS or Aura, both Hyundai.
Maruti's CNG cars are joke, bare bones with no even a simple music system, no accessories, nada nothing!
We will most probably go for Aura as boot space is still considerable after the CNG tank.

Tata is testing Altroz and Tiago CNG version but will launch mid of next year.

Ya'll Nibbiars with the mounting debt the Hyundai Motor Group Non Automotive assets would be forced to be sold. And even the KIA Stake's.
Their Genesis and Kia sub brands bled out too much money.

Genesis models have hardly any sales but took billions in RnD and production.

In non-automotive business also, Samsung is taking away all heavy industry work from them.

Ya'll Nibbiars HHI is owned by different family members not them. And they have already facing possible Forced Disinvestment's. The KIA would soon be off from the Hyundai Motor Group's.

Ya recent crackdowns on the Korean Chaebols after taken down of previous president Park Geun-hye.
Massive hunt on all big chaebol families to lower their influence over politics in Korea and also to disinvest power and money to more people in the country.

No CNG!
Currently no CNG kits for BS6 cars.
People are putting BS4 CNG kits in new cars but RTO will not approve the papers.
There is no updated ECU there currently for BS6.
Even EU countries are on BS5 equivalent level.
