Hyundai Subcompact SUV To Take Aim At Nissan Juke In 2017

Hyundai is said to be prepping the introduction of a new small SUV, which will slot below the current Tucson/ix35.

Set to rival the likes of the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur, Opel/Vauxhall Mokka and Peugeot 2008, it could borrow styling cues by the Intrado concept, shown two years ago, and arrive as part of the i20 range, alongside the supermini and the ix20 small MPV, as AutoExpress writes, citing senior sources.

The engine lineup could come from the all-new i30 and include a range of 1.0-liter, three-cylinder, and 1.4-liter, four-cylinder petrol units, along with a 1.6-liter diesel, in several states of tune. 

Hyundai's recent move to trademark the ix15, ix25, ix30, ix45 and ix55 monikers might be an indication that the baby SUV will wear one of these names when it will be introduced, probably before the end of 2017.
