Hyundai To Redesign Current Sonata Due To Poor Sales Start

Jan 16 2015 08:15 AM | Hyundai News
Hyundai seems to be going backwards with the current Sonata. Unlike the previous model which was stealing sales from competitors, the newest model doesn't have the same effect. The reason? Looks.

“I told the story to our parent company (of driving the old Sonata) home, (and) people were rolling down their window at stop signs, following me, (asking), ‘What is that? Where can I get it?", said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America CEO to Wards Auto.

“And I don’t get that” with the new one. “That was free advertising, right? People would seek us out because we look different. And we don’t get that now.”

When the current Sonata was shown at the New York Auto Show, Zuchowski said that the Sonata didn't have to...

Spying: Next Hyundai Equus Makes Its First Appearance

Sep 15 2014 10:25 AM | Hyundai News
At first glance, a new set of spy photos shows what appears to be a Hyundai Genesis sedan that has been stretched. But according to Automobile Magazine, what we are looking at is the next-generation Equus flagship.

The mule appears to be riding on a longer wheelbase. This is hinted by a large piece of sheetmetal riveted behind the rear doors. Also giving some credence that we're looking at the next Equus. Driving along with the mule was a BMW 7-Series.

Not much is known about the next-generation Equus, but Automobile Magazine speculates that the model will share the Genesis' platform and come with the option of all-wheel drive. As for when we'll see the model, 2016 or 2017 seems very likely.

An unnamed Hyundai executive tells GoAuto.com.au that the company is currently debating whether or not to do a second-generation Veloster.

“It still has not been decided. There is still debate as to whether it will happen.”

Last year, the Veloster sold 60,000 units worldwide. Over half of those were delivered to North America where the model experienced a decline.
