CARS.COM — Hyundai only recently unveiled a new version of its subcompact Accent sedan, but the automaker has just announced that its focus going forward will be all SUVs, all the time. Hyundai plans to debut eight new or redesigned SUVs in the U.S. by 2020.
The 2018 Kona subcompact SUV will kick off the initiative when it goes on sale early next year, followed by others that Hyundai says will span from the subcompact segment all the way to the three-row SUV class. Aside from a diversity in size, Hyundai says the SUVs will use a variety of powertrains, including gas, diesel, hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric power. According to the automaker, it will be the only manufacturer offering SUV shoppers four different fuel choices.
Look for the new models on the auto-show circuit, starting with the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month.
