Hyundai May Add a Smaller Crossover SUV in the US

A third crossover SUV is in the works

Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik recently stated that the automaker is considering a third crossover SUV for its US lineup. The CEO believes that the automaker is "very under-represented" in the critical crossover segment of the market. Krafcik did say that there are no immediate plans to add a third crossover.

"We are very under-represented," Krafcik said. "We lead the industry in sedans, we have a bunch of them, but if you look at our crossover line, we (only) have two nameplates, the Tucson and the Santa Fe." Hyundai currently has approximately 7% of the US sedan market but only 2% of the truck segment.

All SUVs are considered trucks whether or not they're based on a car platform. While Hyundai offered no specifics, the new crossover is expected to be smaller than the Tucson. "I think it is something that we have to look at," Krafcik said. "We don't have any plans. (But) it does seem like there is a lot of action in stuff below RAV4- and Tucson-sized vehicles. A new segment is emerging."

ARK Performance Turns 2015 Hyundai Genesis Into Super SEMA Sedan

Oct 1 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

Hyundai has done one hell of a job transforming the Genesis. The first generation machine was a novel take on a segment on which Germany has held a tight grip. There were hints of luxury, but the car was overall a B- effort. Now though, Hyundai offers up the second-generation Genesis and it's a true shot across the ...

KANATA, Ont. — My dad harrumphs a lot, not at all shy about displaying his disapproval or displeasure. And he comes by dissatisfaction honestly. He is, after all, 86 years old, stuck alone in the house and, thanks to the vagaries of Scottish/Irish ancestry, naturally predisposed to curmudgeonry. Like all his age, he has his routines. The same aisles are shopped in the grocery store, the same Dare chocolate biscuits bo ...

Kia bringing updated Rio, Venga to Paris

Filed under: Budget, Minivan/Van, Europe, Paris Motor Show, Hatchback, Kia The Rio may not be the most popular Kia in the United States - not by a long shot - but it was the brand's top seller globally last year. Little wonder, then, that although the current fourth-generation model was only introduced in 2011, the Korean automaker is already rolling out a facelifted version. Set to be revealed later this week at the Paris Motor Show, the 2015 Kia Rio has been updated inside, out ...
