Mid-Size Pickup Truck Drag Race: Honda Ridgeline Vs Hyundai Santa Cruz
There’s something to be said about a drag race between pickup trucks. Straight-line performance is not really the main selling point of these types of vehicles, but it still gives you an idea of how good the powertrains are at propelling them. Last time, Sam CarLegion had a RAM 1500 TRX vs Ford F150 ROUSH drag race, instore. This time, it’s the Honda Ridgeline vs the Hyundai Santa Cruz, and here’s what happened.
2022 Hyundai Sonata N Line Night Edition

The latest Honda Civic takes on the Hyundai Elantra at the drag strip. The results might surprise you
This Failed Moose Test Confirms That The Ford Mach-E Is Actually A Mustang!
For the longest time, I’ve refused to acknowledge the Mach-E to have the Mustang spirit. But, it looks like I’ll have to change that now. The Mach-E just gave us solid proof that it has the Mustang DNA by failing a moose test that its rivals passed without breaking a sweat. The Mach-E swayed across and fishtailed its way into the cones at the first turn. The original Mustang must be smiling with tears in its eyes looking at the Mach-E.
Battle Of The Hot Budget Hatches: The Hyundai i20 N vs Ford Fiesta ST vs Volkswagen Polo GTI
Mat Watson and his team from ‘Carwow’ brought three hot budget hatches to the drag strip. The contenders were the Hyundai i20 N, the Ford Fiesta ST, and the Volkswagen Polo GTI. All of them make in the whereabouts of 200 horsepower. The fact that every car has an aspect where it shines the best and is better than its competitors makes up for an interesting race. Which hatch do you have your money on?
Could Hyundai bring Hydrogen back in style?
Hydrogen was declared by many to be a lost cause and a waste of time and money. However, Hyundai has apparently been investing a lot of both of those things in the advancement of hydrogen. Coming September 7th, Hyundai will release something pretty significant.
2022 Hyundai Elantra N
Hyundai is pretty aggressive in launching their new version of the already popular Elantra, with an "N" at the back of its name which ensures breathtaking performance for a price tag that won’t break the bank. It has yet to hit the market, but this is what you need to know about it.
Hyundai Isn’t Done With the Mid-Engined RM19 Superhatch
Hyundai’s mid-engined halo car has a history that dates back nearly a decade, and that’s just the history that we know about. It’s been more than a year since we really last heard about what was going on with the car – now known as the RM19 Concept – but we’ve finally heard something fresh. As it turns out, Hyundai didn’t forget about it. On the contrary, the company has actually been busy making some modifications that includes a new engine. Does that mean more power?
2022 Hyundai Elantra N - The Elantra Joins the Kona and Veloster in the ’N’ Range
The 2022 Hyundai Elantra N was initially slated to make its North American debut at the New York Auto Show. However because the event was canceled for the second year in a row, owing to the pandemic, the Korean automaker chose to debut its newest high-performance N-line sedan via an online presentation.
2021 Hyundai Venue Test Drive
The Hyundai Venue isn’t only one of the brand’s newest cars, but it’s also the smallest SUV or crossover the brand currently sells. As a subcompact model, it competes with models like the Mazda CX-30 and Honda HR-V, but there’s a catch, because the Venue is significantly smaller, sitting on the lower border of the subcompact segment. With that in mind, we have been itching to find out if a smaller, more affordable Hyundai can actually hold its own against the larger, more expensive competition. It does have its faults, but you’ll be surprised as to what those faults really are.
Hyundai Veloster N DCT vs Honda Civic Type-R - Can The Small Korean Run With One Of The Best?
Most would probably agree that a drag race is a good way to determine which one of two (or more) cars has superior performance. Sam CarLegion – a YouTube channel that drag races (mostly) new vehicles – has given us a proper quarter-mile brawl between two of the hottest hot hatchbacks currently on sale. It’s the Hyundai Veloster N DCT versus the Honda Civic Type-R. Although a drag race only tells you so much about a car’s overall performance, the two are more evenly matched than you might think.
The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Is Almost $4k More Expensive Than Ford Maverick
Hyundai has announced that the Santa Cruz pickup will go on sale at the end of July 2021. It will carry a price tag of $23,990 for the entry-level, FWD, SE model, while the range-topping limited trim with the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine and AWD will command a steep price of $39,720. In comparison, the new Ford Maverick starts out at just $19,995, and it’s coming from an automaker that knows a thing of two about trucks. It will even be offered with an FX4 package that will being with it more off-road capability, but with AWD vs. 4WD. The Santa Cruz will offer up to 275 horsepower, which isn’t bad for a smaller truck, which might be its strongest selling point as the range-topping Maverick will come with just 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque from a turbocharged, 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. Click on the full-screen button on the slider above to read our dedicated webstory on the Hyundai Santa Cruz and what it brings to the table.
The Hyundai Elantra N Is Impressively Better Than Expected
Hyundai is trying hard to make its performance ‘N’ division more mainstream. The automaker has infused the Elantra with the ‘N’ steroids to come up with its first high-performance sedan. The company has taken the wraps off the global version of the Elantra N, but confirmed that it will come to the U.S. as well. The U.S.-spec Elantra N will debut at the New York Auto Show that’s slated for August 2021.
Hyundai’s Latest Move Will Change The Brand Forever
With so many automakers starting to focus on electrification, it seems like we’re constantly talking about the future and how the industry will evolve. Just recently, we learned that Porsche is about to reveal a Boxster EV Concept and Mercedes is already embacing electrification hard with the EQ lineup and more recently announcing that the C-Class would carry around a battery and a four-cylinder engine, including in the range-topping AMG C63. It’s not just premium automakers, either, as Toyota is working heavily on its investment in hydrogen technology – like this Hydrogen-powered Corolla race car – and now it looks like Hyundai is killing any and all R&D of internal combustion engines, sealing the fate of the company’s future. Here’s what it really means.
2021 Hyundai i30
If you follow what’s happening in the automotive world, you’ve probably noticed how Hyundai cars have turned from cheap and unremarkable into worthy alternatives to already established manufacturers. When it comes to mass-produced vehicles, the Hyundai i30 is right up there with the likes of Toyota Corolla and Volkswagen Golf. The i30’s rise to its current status began at the 2010 Frankfurt Auto Show, where the second generation shocked Volkswagen executives, wondering how the Korean brand could come up with something so good. The i30 is currently in its third generation, but what really makes it so good?
Hyundai Promises More N Performance Models, And I’m Not Sure It’s a Good Thing
Let’s face it, Performance vehicles as we know them like the BMW M4, Hyundai Veloster, – and by that, I mean cars with raw internal combustion power – aren’t exactly staring down the barrel of a bright future. By 2030 or 2040 at the latest, there’s a good chance that you’ll only be able to buy electric vehicles and, while they can offer some great performance as we’ve learned from cars like the Porsche Taycan, the basis behind performance vehicles is changing. That’s probably why automakers are offering so many performance vehicles that, well, probably shouldn’t even exist.
The Hyundai Kona N, as cool as it is, is one such model. The world doesn’t need a high-performance Kona, but here we are with one. Other automakers are doing the same thing, and it’s only because we’re willing to snatch them up as quickly as they can produce them simply based on the fact that this is probably our last chance. And that’s probably a big reason as to why Hyundai has just promised a whole bunch of N Performance models….

Are Hyundai Cars Reliable?
Hyundai’s cars are very reliable. In fact, a study carried out by U.S. News revealed that Hyundais are even more reliable than Hondas after bagging 3.5 out of five predicted reliability points (Honda managed to get three points out of five). In addition, Hyundai has made a name for itself by offering generous warranty packages, including a five-year/60,000-mile basic scheme that can be further extended to 10 years and 100,000 miles powertrain warty across the board. Moreover, the Ioniq comes with a lifetime warranty scheme for the battery packs. Moreover, back in 2015, CNN named Hyundai the ninth most reliable car brand. On the other hand, in 2017, The Telegraph’s survey for car reliability placed Hyundai on the 18th place. ReliabilityIndex places Hyundai on the 16th spot, with a score of 100, just a tad above the industry’s average.
