The South Korean based automaker Hyundai is planning to introduce a small crossover in its lineup which will become a rival for the popular Nissan Juke.
The Nissan Juke was the path leader in the “B-segment for crossover” as it was the first company to introduce such a model and now we can currently select between a wide array of vehicles, in the same segment, including the Renault Captur, the Peugeot 2008, the Ford EcoSport, the Opel Mokka, the Chevrolet Trax and so on, depending on what is suiting us better.
The newest car manufacturer to enter this competitive segment is Hyundai as this is planning to introduce a new subcompact crossover to rival the Nissan Juke and all the models mentioned above. The announcement hasn’t been made official but according to Edmunds, who have spoken to Dave Zuchowski, the Hyundai Motor America CEO, such a model is a possibility.
“Think of maybe something that looks like a Juke or something that has edgy, dynamic styling”, said the company’s official to our source.
Hyundai might be using the Curb Concept for a basis of its subcompact crossover, which has been introduced back in 2011, during the Detroit Motor Show and the company is saying that we shouldn’t expect a mini Tucson when speaking about this new model. More details on it are limited for the moment but rumors are hinting towards an unveil in 2017.
