Hyundai is in the midst of unveiling a massive product offensive with an SUV, two MPVs, a mid-size sedan, and a new coupe.
Hyundai has been on a roll lately, but in order to keep the momentum, the company is in the midst of unveiling a massive product offensive.
Autoweek.nl is reporting Hyundai will kick things off by launching a production version of their Ix-ONIC Concept which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. Set to become an eco-friendly alternative to the Volkswagen Tiguan, the ix35 will be powered by a new 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with 140 hp and CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.
Later in 2010, Hyundai is expected to unveil two new MPV versions of their i20 and i30. Although details are limited, the five seat i20 MPV will measure 4.10 meters long, 1.77 meters wide and 1.60 meters high. Likewise, the seven seat i30 MPV will come in at 4.48 meters long, 1.80 meters wide and 1.61 meters high.
In 2011, Hyundai will launch a new i40 which is expected to be based on the Genus Concept. Aimed at the Volkswagen Passat and Opel Insignia, the i40 will be offered in both sedan and wagon form with a long list of fuel efficient engines.
Finally, Hyundai's sexy Veloster Concept will also head for production with a Mini Clubman-like four door arraignment (one on driver's side, two on the passenger's side, and one rear hatch). Engine options are expected to include a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 140 hp as well as a slightly larger 2.0-liter with 172 hp.
