Three New Hyundais Coming to Frankfurt Motor Show
Hyundai's new product blitz will continue next month in Germany as the Korean manufacturer introduces three new cars at the Frankfurt Motor Show. At the largest auto show in Europe, Hyundai will reveal a production version of its next-generation i30 compact wagon, known in the U.S. as the Hyundai Elantra Touring. The automaker will also show the third-generation Hyundai Santa Fe midsize crossover and a refreshed version of its i20 subcompact, a European model that's slightly smaller than the U.S.-market 2012 Hyundai Accent. In an interview with U.K.-based Autocar, Tony Whitehorn, managing director of Hyundai UK said, “We’ve already shown with our other recent models that each car that comes out of this company is quite improved, both technically and in terms of emotional appeal.” Hyundai has brought out a string of stylish and competitive cars as it battles for market share with the establishment. In the U.S., Hyundai’s first new car to break the mold was the 2011 Hyundai Sonata midsize sedan, which has won its fair share of awards in its brief history. Hyundai followed up with the compact 2011 Elantra sedan and the Accent. Over the next year, Hyundai will also roll out the Veloster sports coupe, a refreshed Genesis lineup, and a new Azera based off the Korean-market Hyundai Grandeur. Source: Autocar
