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."

Online Find Of The Day: Custom 2005 Chevy SSR is late for Shark Week

Aug 29 2014 2:49pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, Car Buying, Convertible, Performance, Truck, Marketing/Advertising, Chevrolet, Design/Style Even when brand new, the Chevrolet SSR wasn't the most beloved car on the market. Its attempt to mix a pickup, convertible sports car and retro styling caused to be a love-it-or-hate-it design. With most people falling deeply into the latter camp, production only lasted from 2003 to 2006. But let's just say one of the most polarizin ...

Motor Mouth: Let’s face it, our cars look entirely the same

Aug 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Head down, fingers maniacally keyboarding my iPhone. Embroiled, as we baby boomers are seemingly always wont to be, in something we are sure is so earth-shatteringly important that it simply cannot wait. Not paying the slightest attention, as always, to anything around me, I spot a burgundy shape looking vaguely SUV-ish. Thinking it the reddish-hued MKC I was testing, I, without even a furtive glance up, flip the Li ...

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Green Culture, Tesla Motors When is a Honda Accord more appealing than a Tesla Model S? When you're a thief. The Accord continues to reign as the most-stolen car in the US but the Model S is now claiming a new and interesting title: the least-stolen car in America. Last year, it wasn't even on the list.
