Hyundai SUV & CUV Model Expansion Plans
Let’s have a look at the future Hyundai SUV model range (2018 and beyond)!
Traditional family sedans are starting to take a back seat to SUV’s and crossover models, and that has automakers changing on the fly.
The current US Hyundai SUV model range features only two models, the Tucson and Santa Fe, but they will be expanding that offering soon.
The goal for Hyundai is to add a pair of brand new crossover vehicles to the line-up, both of which will be entry-level models.
Hyundai B-segment SUV
The first vehicle, a B-segment model, should hit the market in 2018, and may be given the Intrado name, which was used for a concept model a couple of years ago.
The yet unnamed small Hyundai SUV has already been spotted testing in the US and Europe, and we expect it to reach the local Hyundai stores sometime next year, labeled as the 2018 model.
Hyundai A-segment SUV
A smaller A-segment model would follow sometime after, but since this is a new announcement, the details are non-existent.
2018 Hyundai Santa Fe
The popular Hyundai Santa Fe is going to be moving up the scale, and will become a full-size crossover that seats 8.
It will be given a new name so that there is no confusion between this one and the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport.
The latter of those two will also be larger and adopt a look more in keeping with a Jeep.
Hyundai Tucson SUV
That will leave the Tucson right in the middle of the range, although it too will get a little larger, although probably not for a few more years.
All-electric Hyundai SUV model
Hyundai also plans on delivering a 200-mile SUV, and a Tucson fuel cell vehicle.
The plan is to have this line-up in place by 2020, which is the same timeframe for a total of 14 green vehicles Hyundai has planned.
Many of the green vehicles will come as the new crossovers are introduced, and new generations brought in.
