First shown as a 2005 concept in Chicago, Hyundai is hoping its R-Class-like crossover will fill all the niches where Mercedes and Chrysler’s Pacifica failed.
Flexible seating for the Portico means two rows of seating with seating for 4 or 6 – depending if the centre seat is folded down or upright.
With six passengers in two rows - the Portico will offer more cargo area than similarly sized vehicles.
The Portico is expected to be offered with a V6, as well as with a hybrid powertrain, and will be built in Alabama.
Hyundai Australia has not announced any plans to bring the Portico here, however depending on its success in the United States, there is a possibility of this six-seater making its way to our side of the world.
