Hyundai will roll out a new subcompact crossover, targeted at Nissan Juke

Article by Christian A., on August 1, 2014

In an attempt to steal some sales from the Nissan Juke, Hyundai will roll out a subcompact crossover. Set to hit the dealerships by 2017, the new vehicle will follow the same path as the Veloster as it will be designed for Gen Y a.k.a. first-time younger buyers.

Hyundai already showed the Curb Concept back in 2011 at the Detroit Auto Show and said that the vehicle was designed for Generation Y living an urban lifestyle with an active night life.

The concept looked really good but so far we didn’t see a production version, which means that Hyundai might delay it or build a new one.

The Curb Concept was powered by a 1.6-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) four-cylinder engine, bolted to a Direct Shift Gearbos (DSG). The engine delivers 175 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque and was capable to deliver a fuel economy of over 30 mpg city and over 40mpg highway.
