Despite a record year of sales for the South Korean brand, Hyundai’s large SUV, the Santa Fe and its new offering in the medium car segment, the Sonata, have fallen short of making a big impact in their respective segments.

Hyundai Australia is expecting that more aggressive pricing and a lift in sales of other models will counteract the departure of the i20 light car and the unavailability of the i10. In 2014 Hyundai sold 14,979 i20s compared to just 7,561 Accents, meaning the company will need to push its new entry vehicle aggressively if it intends to reclaim that marketshare with a more simplified single offering...
