Hyundai is launching a new line of cars exclusive to its Brazilian consumers called the HB (standing for “Hyundai Brasil”). This new Hyundai features a beefed-up exterior and more ground clearance, and it comes at the same time that Honda’s similar Fit Twist was also unveiled.

Looking like a jacked-up version of a US-spec Elantra GT, the HB20X has more of a soft-roader appearance than the base HB20 thanks to its taller ride height, tinted headlights and taillights, black plastic trim around the lower edge of the car and rear fascia, black decal on the side doors and the roof rack. The HB20X on display in São Paulo also gets a flashier interior with blue contrast stitching on steering wheel and seats, sport pedals and chrome accents.

Unfortunately, as many comparisons as we’d love to draw for this car to the Suzuki SX4 or Subaru XV Crosstrek, it does not appear that the HB20X is available with all-wheel drive. Power comes from Hyundai’s 128-horsepower, 1.6-liter Gamma I4.
