Hyundai spotted testing stylish new crossover set to rival the Nissan Juke

Given the presence of oddly-styled crossovers such as the Nissan Juke, it seems a good part of the market takes interest in styling that departs from the conventional format for crossovers. That said it seems Hyundai has taken notice as it appears are following in the stride of Nissan – with their own crossover with unique styling.

Likely the underpinnings of this new crossover will be based off the i20, while a mix of parts from both the i20 and the upcoming i30 will be used as well.

Options for front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive will also likely be present for the upcoming model.
