When Hyundai Motor Group announced that their brand-new plant located on the outskirts of Jakarta, Indonesia will focus on sedans, compact SUVs and compact MPVs, it got us thinking, is there a possibility we will see Hyundai offering up a compact MPV in Malaysia?
At the moment, Hyundai still does not have a compact MPV to offer, the only MPV they have is the Grand Starex, which is a full-size higher end MPV. But earlier this year, spy shots of a heavily camouflaged Hyundai MPV surfaced in China.
It is believed that the MPV will be priced as a mid to high-end MPV and will most probably be manufactured in Hyundai’s Cangzhou facility in Beijing. Rollout is predicted to begin in the second half of the year in China, but the India market believes that the MPV will also be making its way to their shores as well. Our sources also told us that the MPV will also be produced in Indonesia, and will be exported to other neighbouring countries.
