    They seem to be nailing the timing of new product releases. Interesting to see how they do over the next couple years.

    I think the Kona looks good as does the Sonata.  Whoever is doing their styling is hitting the mark.  How many of these crossovers can they make though.  Venue, Kona, Tucson, Sante Fe, Palliade, and maybe I missed one of there could be more coming.

    Dude the Kona is tiny and on the edge of usefulness because of it...  I will be waiting to see how a CUV even smaller will work in the USA... I could see it working in Europe... but America?

    QFT.  The new Venue belongs in Europe or Asia, not here.

    It will probably be Nissan Kicks in size. 

    Kicks...........................Kona

    wheelbase 103.1...........102.4

    total interior volume  93.9..........94.1

    cargo room seat up  25.3................19.2

    cargo room seat down  32.3.............45.8 (how this is measured might be different between OEMs)

    Kicks and Kona are pretty darn close in size

    Hmm. The kona feels bigger, but numbers are numbers.

    People want crossovers and cars keep getting more expensive.  The Venue will sell in the USA just fine.

    Cars like the Venue are the new economy car hatchback.  But they sit a little higher so people can feel better about buying them.

    The new Accent hatchback, available elsewhere, is a good looking little car.  The Kona, is it supposed to correspond with the Elantra then?  I was thinking Kona = Accent, Tucson = Elantra, Sante Fe = Sonata.  The lower trimmed Kona interior is drab as hell.  The only Kona interior I like is the Limited/Ultimate in black leather with lime accents.  Will be interesting to see how the Venue is trimmed.

    This rendering seems to match up pretty well to the disguised spy photo.  

    I wonder if the Venue will be related to the existing ix25/Creta which is related to the Kia Soul.

      Ford is planning a dramatic change to their European lineup. Autocar reported yesterday that the automaker will be replacing the Mondeo (Fusion to us), Galaxy, and S-Max with a new "single crossover-style estate model" - think Subaru Outback.
      Not many details are known about this new model. It is expected to use Ford's C2 platform which underpins the new Fiesta and Focus. A range of gas and diesel engines will be available, along with 48V mild-hybrid system. The new wagon is expected to arrive in early 2021 in Europe. Autocar notes that this model is expected to be sold in other markets such as North America.
      While this model is quite different from three it will replace (a midsize sedan/hatchback/wagon and two vans), it is expected to outsell all of them. Last year, Ford only moved 50,000 Mondeos, 24,000 S-Maxs, and 12,000 Galaxy. Numbers according to Autocar that are too small to make any profit.
      As for the U.S., the reason is likely due to Ford to possibly keep sedan buyers in the showroom. Last July, we reported that Ford was considering doing an "Outback competitor" with the Fusion name.

      Hyundai first showed the Santa Cruz pickup truck concept at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show and has teased the truck to the public in the 4 years since its debut.  Now it seems that the Vice President of Product, Corporate, and Digital Planning is saying the Korean auto maker is expecting to enter the U.S. truck market soon with a model built in North America, and possibly in the U.S.  Hyundai already builds the Santa Fe crossover in Montgomery Alabama. 
      The Santa Cruse that was shown at NAIAS was a crossover vehicle similar to the Honda Ridgeline and featured a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine, a tailgate which could extend out further from the truck, and rear hinged rear doors. Given that Hyundai has already canceled plans for the diesel Santa Fe, don't expect one to make it into the Santa Cruz. 
      There is still no timeline for introduction or production of the consumer version, so if you're holding your breath for this truck, you'll have to keep holding a bit longer.
