Crete is a compact SUV, a strategic model developed to target emerging automobile markets such as Russia and India. It has a sleek and sporty image, a stable and confident design, and provides a casual driving life at a reasonable price.

In particular, it ranks first among Russian SUV models, and last year, thanks to its high popularity, it introduced a limited edition model’Creta Rock Edition’ that emphasized luxury.

Then, like Crete, Solaris is a Russian strategic model. Solaris is a model name determined through a local competition, meaning’sun’ and was sold as an accent in Korea.

In February of this year, a new model applied with Hyundai Motor’s design philosophy’Sensure’s Sportiness’ is unveiled, and it is expected to record higher performance than last year with sophisticated design and enhanced infotainment functions.


India is the so-called’hottest’ emerging automobile market. It has as many populations and vast territories as China, and the demand for automobiles is increasing rapidly in recent years, so it is attracting much anticipation. Some consider it an attractive automotive manufacturing market that can replace China.

Hyundai Motor Company is launching several strategic models that take into account the emotions of local customers in India, and at the same time promoting the brand through advertising that stimulates emotions.

Based on last year’s sales, the most popular model in India is the Venue, i10. It can be seen that they primarily prefer small SUVs and small hatchbacks, which suggests that Indian customers want a feature-rich vehicle at a relatively affordable price.

Venue is the best model with about 70,000 units sold last year. With its small but strong exterior, compliant performance and various convenience functions, it has captured the hearts of Indian customers. As a representation of this, Venue won the Best Quality Award in the ‘2019 Indian New Car Quality Survey’ announced by JD Power.

In particular, India is famous for poor road conditions. Venue is a compact SUV, so it has the advantage of more stable driving and lower maintenance costs due to tax benefits. In terms of tax benefits, cars less than 4 meters long have less tax, which is why they are a bit shorter than the Venues sold in Korea.

In the Indian version of the British automobile magazine Car,

‘Fresh design and excellent interior and exterior quality are merit, and daytime running lights are luxurious.’
‘Compared to competitive cars, the interior finishing materials are superior, and the interior space is ergonomic and spacious.’

Also gave an evaluation. As such, it can be interpreted as a car suitable for Indian customers.

The two media compared the Venue and several competitive models of the same class and scored after a test drive. It has been well received for its excellent driving performance, comfortable ride, styling, and space.

The model that is popular in India is not only Venue, but also i10. The i10 is a regional strategic model for Europe and India. It is classified as a light model and has a cost-effectiveness ratio and a variety of advanced safety/convenience specifications, which has led to the satisfaction of Indian customers for a long time. The i10 is a popular model with 120,000 units sold last year alone, and this year, two models are being sold as the main axis: the GRAND i10 and the GRAND i10 NIOS.

In particular, the GRAND i10 NIOS is a model released after Venue and Kona Electric, raising its marketability with a larger body and a completely new interior and exterior design.


In Vietnam, one of the emerging markets, Hyundai Motor Company’s performance is also outstanding. As of the first half of this year, Accent and the GRAND i10 led the way, surpassing the Japanese brand that remained at the top.

In the case of Accent, it was ranked 2nd in Vietnam’s best-selling car in the first half, and Kona, Tucson, and Santa Fe were among the top 10, leading the performance. The reason why small models are so central is that Vietnam charges very high taxes on cars, and most of them are under 1,500cc.

Particularly, the GRAND i10 has a compact size and excellent practicality, replacing the two-wheeled vehicle and becoming the Vietnamese national car.

Meanwhile, this achievement is related to the decrease in sales volume caused by Corona 19 in addition to its excellent quality. For the top-ranked brand, 27 percent fell sharply, while Hyundai Motors showed a big difference at 17 percent.

From the end of June, the Vietnamese government is implementing a consumption revitalization policy that cuts the registration tax of local assembled cars by half. Thanks to this, the demand for Hyundai Motors is also expected to increase rapidly. In addition, expansion of the second factory in Vietnam is planned, which will become a global production base targeting the ASEAN market.
