Hyundai appears to be jumping on the baby crossover bandwagon.
Spy photographers have caught a new subcompact crossover from Hyundai testing in Germany. When the new model arrives, it will compete with such vehicles as the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Toyota C-HR, and Nissan Juke.
From the spy photos, we can see that the back end of the new crossover will have a funky style, taking design cues from the cool Intrado concept that debuted in 2014, and that it might look like a jacked-up Accent or i20 but with higher ground clearance and some body cladding for a more rugged look. We can expect that front-wheel drive will be standard, but drivers will be able to upgrade to AWD as well.
The subcompact crossover segment continues to gain in popularity, and it is an obvious hole in Hyundai’s lineup. Expect a concept or even production version to debut in 2017 and go on sale as a 2018 model year car. Hyundai’s baby crossover hasn’t been named yet.
