New Hyundai 4x4 for 2012?

#1 Postby borderspeed » Wed Mar 02, 2011 5:26 pm

Hi,
Last summer at the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh I spoke with a Hyundai Executive about the range, who said that in 2012(late 2011) there would be an effective replacement for both the Santa Fe and the Terracan.

The Santa Fe replacement would be of a similar size but that the overdue replacement to fill the gap left by the Terracan would be aimed at the Discovery market sector and would have a 3.0 Diesel engine and be a genuine 4x4 built for towing and heavy duty work!

Has anyone heard anymore about this or even seen any pictures or mock ups?

Just been on the Hyundai Worldwide website and think I found what I was looking for!

The Veracruz/iX55 with 3.8 V6 Petrol or 3.0V6 Diesel

Very nice looking vehicle, UK dealers not got any info on arrival yet.

Doesn't meet the spec for heavy 4x4 use though!

They've had the Veracruz for some time now. It's their high end suv.
