That at least is what American website Edmunds found out during an interview with the CEO of Hyundai North America, Dave Zuckowski. With the renewal of the Santa Fe sport utility vehicle in 2012, and the introduction of the new Genesis and Sonata models this year, Hyundai can now focus on two other very important models, especially in Quebec, the Elantra and Tucson.

Hyundai plans to unveil the next-generation Elantra compact sedan in late 2015 as a 2016 model. The current Elantra has been a fierce competitor to the Civic for the title of best-selling car in the compact vehicle segment in recent years.

The new Hyundai Tucson also will be launched in 2015, again as a 2016 model Also, Dave Zuckowski said a brand new SUV could be launched no later than 2017. It will be an urban utility vehicle primarily intended to compete with the Nissan Juke, the Buick Encore and future Honda HR-V.

The subcompact SUV segment is growing, and it is therefore not surprising to learn that Hyundai plans to offer a model of this type soon.

Finally, Hyundai is preparing to unveil what could be the future Accent at the Paris Auto Show in October. Presented in sketch form, the silhouette of the next Accent will be based on the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language which governs the style of all Hyundai models recently presented.
