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."

The 9 best vehicles for the Canadian zombie apocalypse

Oct 31 2014 12:13pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Speaking purely for myself, I’m really looking forward to the coming zombie apocalypse. Just think of it: no line ups at Starbucks, no more “Beliebers” on Twitter, a huge reduction in traffic, and if you see someone shuffling along slowly with a downcast gaze it’s perfectly socially acceptable to sneak up and smack them upside the head with a cricket bat. You can’t do that today to someone glued to their iPhone. More’s the pity. Granted, there are a few teensy drawbacks – such as the ...

The Pre-Owned 400 Club: 5 Ways to Get 400 Horsepower (or More) for $20,000

Oct 30 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with as many as ...
