The Hyundai B-SUV (production-spec Intrado) will be safer and technologically stronger than the Hyundai Creta.

Hyundai has announced plans to produce a B-Segment SUV at its plant in Izmit, Turkey, from 2019, which produces the Hyundai i10 and i20 for European market. However, Hyundai is yet to decide whether the SUV to-be-produced should be the Hyundai Creta or the i20-based Hyundai B-SUV. The company plans to make 50,000 units of the new SUV every year.

A key detail revealed by Mr Yoon is that the new B-SUV is smaller than the Hyundai Creta, but "cuter". This is also apparent from spyshots of the SUV testing in Europe. It borrows cues from the Hyundai Intrado concept, featuring the new Cascading grille, separate headlamps and pilot lamps similar to the Nissan Juke, and distinctive tail lamps with LED illumination.
