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."

Both Hyundai and sibling Kia have gone upscale, hoping to keep happy current owners in the fold as earnings and desires rise. And there are also lots of buyers from traditi ...

2015 Hyundai Sonata: Car Seat Check

Sep 9 2014 5:41am CDT | Source: Cars.com

The Hyundai Sonata has a new look — both inside and out — for 2015. This midsize family sedan leaves its curves behind in favor of sharper angles. For families with young kids, this redesigned Sonata made easy work of car-seat installation thanks to its exposed Latch anchors, and it managed to improve on its previous generation's scores. The 2015 Sonata nearly fit our three child-safety seats across its backseat. Narrow car seats might allow parents to fit ...
