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."

In this episode, we meet Laurie Waldman, owner of Petal Dust Bake Shop in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto, Ont.

October's Fastest-and Slowest-Selling Cars

Nov 3 2014 11:36am CST | Source: Cars.com

An all-new Ford Mustang is a rare thing indeed and that's why it's no surprise the redesigned pony car was the fastest-selling car in the country last month. New looks and a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine have made it a much-talked about commodity to be sure. But hold the phone.

A 708-hp Hyundai Sonata? Why, Yes, Have One

Nov 3 2014 10:44am CST | Source: Car and Driver

“Reliable power, guaranteed,” says Bisimoto, a tuner based in Ontario, California, east of Los Angeles. And that’s a good thing. Wouldn’t you be slightly concerned about squeezing 708 horsepower out of a rather pedestrian four-cylinder engine? The object of manipulation, in this case, is a Hyundai 2.4-liter Theta II engine, fitted in a Sonata four-door sedan. A Turbonetics TNX 82/64 turbocharger complete with a Turbonetics wategate and blow-off valve (we can already hear it), fo ...
