2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

The Santa Cruz is neither a pickup truck nor an SUV, but has created its own niche and it looks strong

The Santa Cruz was one of the most anticipated vehicles from Hyundai for the better part of the last decade. The company unveiled it as a concept back in 2015 at the Detroit Motor Show and there were a lot of eyes on it since it was the automaker’s first pickup truck. Fast forward to 2021, the Santa Cruz is finally unveiled and the automaker has taken a different approach to it. Hyundai is referring to the Santa Cruz as a Sport Adventure Vehicle and not a pickup truck. We don’t know what the reason for this is, but the Korean automaker is coming across as a little defensive here and not as a niche-maker.

That said, the truck, err., SAV, does look pretty fancy and seems to be quite rugged and tough. The truck will be available from the summer of 2021. Also, doesn’t BMW also call the X7 an SAV? The ‘A’ there stands for ‘Activity’, I believe.

2021 Hyundai Sonata N-Line - Driven

2021 Hyundai Sonata N-Line - Driven

At $33,300 does the sportier, more powerful Sonata N-Line live up to all the hype?

Outside of the likes of BMW, Mercedes, and a few others, the concept of sporty and quick sedans is slowly dying off as people look to either bigger, similarly quick, vehicles or smaller two-door sports cars. Then you’ve got brands like Hyundai that seems to either not care or wants to keep the thrill of driving alive, and this is where the Hyundai Sonata N-Line comes in. It’s based on your typical midsized family sedan but is injected with enough sporty DNA that it stands out both visually and in terms of performance. Of course, we’re not talking Porsche Panamera or Dodge Challenger levels of performance, but affordable performance – something that, arguably, gives you a bigger bang for your buck. Here’s what you need to know about the Sonata N-Line and why you should consider it for your next daily driver.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

The South Korean’s first pickup truck will be a unibody construction and is expected to feature a starting sticker price of $25,000

Hyundai has a fairly long lineup of sedans and SUVs. With that covered, the company now plans to enter the pickup truck market, too. Back in 2015, Hyundai revealed the Santa Cruz truck concept at the Detroit Auto Show. Not a lot is known about the production model yet, but it will be based on the new Tucson SUV and will have a unibody construction. The truck has been spotted a few times over the years during its test runs, but we’re yet to see it without camouflage. The production is set to begin this year, and Hyundai could debut it sometime next year with deliveries starting soon after.

2021 Hyundai Tucson N-Line

2021 Hyundai Tucson N-Line

Plenty of aesthetic upgrades and nothing underneath that hood

Remember those rumors late last year that Hyundai was planning to release a 300-horsepower Tucson N Line? Well, you can put those rumors to bed. Hyundai has released the Tucson N Line, except that the 300-horsepower engine we expected to see in the Tucson N Line is nowhere to be found. Instead, eager beaver customers will get aesthetic upgrades and, well, that’s about it.

The Tucson N Line still looks like a saucy crossover with more sporty bits to show off, but if you were expecting those rumors to come to fruition, we regret to inform you that those seeds bore no fruit.

Hyundai’s latest offering to race-eager customers is here

Like the other TCR cars before it, the Elantra N TCR is a race car you can’t get to drive on public roads. It has been developed to serve private racing teams and it’s underpinned by the popular Elantra sedan; although not much is carried over from the original car except the chassis and well, the name.

2021 Hyundai Kona N Line

The Kona N Line is not a proper N car, but it’s a sportier option that will stand out

The 2021 Hyundai Kona N Line is a sportier looking version of the company’s subcompact SUV. Introduced alongside the facelifted Kona, the N Line is just a styling package that adds sportier features on the outside and unique upholstery on the inside. The 2021 Kona N Line is available with the same engines as the regular crossover, with no option for a more powerful unit. What sets it apart from the standard Kona? Let’s find out in the review below.

2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid - Driven

When economy, comfort, and practicality blend together into a nice package

When Hyundai introduced the eighth-gen Sonata in 2019, it essentially built on top of the already awesome styling that was brought with the seventh-gen’s mid-cycle facelift. Today, the car looks like it sits in a higher price bracket than it does and in hybrid form it delivers some pretty impressive fuel economy figures too. Does the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid have the looks, comfort, and driving experience to nudge itself above cars like the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Honda Accord Hybrid? Well, we just spent a week with the Sonata Hybrid, and we actually have a lot to say about it. Here’s what you need to know.

2021 Hyundai Elantra N - Everything We Know So Far

The rumors about a hot version of the Elantra are finally confirmed. A camouflaged Elantra with a significantly more aggressive body kit has been seen out doing tests. Similar to the European i30, the performance theme does not end with the N Line, but instead it continues with a full-blown performance version in the form of the Elantra N. Here is everything we know so far about the latest addition to Hyundai’s performance lineup.

The Hyundai Elantra N Just Made the Family Sedan A Lot More Interesting

Hyundai brings the hot Elantra N to the United States

Following the release of the i30 N, Veloster N, and i20 N, Hyundai is introducing a fourth member of the high-performance N family: the Elantra N. The first N vehicle that’s not a hatchback of a fastback, the Elantra N is the company’s first high-performance sedan (even though it’s closer to a four-door coupe).

The Elantra N is also the second N model in the United States, after the Veloster, and borrows heavily from its hatchback sibling. Just like the Veloster N, the Elantra N will pack a turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for more than 270 horsepower.

2022 Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai’s best-selling car is out for Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V blood

Hyundai has went full German on the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson’s design and that’s not a bad thing. Not at all. In fact, it shows the Korean carmaker’s competitiveness in a cloak-and-dagger segment. However, you need more than a pretty or sci-fi face to make it in this arena.

We’ll know more about what the 2020 Tucson feels like inside and out once we take it for a spin. For now, here’s what the crossover has to offer on paper.

2021 Hyundai Sonata N Line

Could this sporty Sonata redefine the affordable sports sedan concept?

It’s hardly any news by now that Hyundai has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time. What used to be a Korean budget car manufacturer years ago turned into an automotive force to be reckoned with. With the Sonata N-Line, Hyundai extends its performance lineup to its midsize sedan.

No doubt, this brings back memories from the times when we had affordable sporty sedans like the Volvo S60-T5, Mazdaspeed 6, and Subaru Legacy GT. Although the Crossover/SUV fever is still going strong, it will be interesting to see if the new Sonata N-Line marks the return of affordable sport sedans.

The Hyundai Tucson Has an All-New Look and Some Impressive Features

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson looks futuristic and packs loads of modern tech

After only five years on the market, the third-generation Hyundai Tucson was discontinued to make way for a brand-new model. The fourth-gen SUV is a big departure from its predecessor in terms of exterior design, but it also brings new and innovative technology to the table. The fourth-gen Hudson is also the first to offer a hybrid drivetrain. The SUV was launched without the usual diesel options, and it remains to be seen if Hyundai will add any later on.

This Rendering Of A Hyundai Pickup Truck Looks Ready To Take On The Likes Of Ford Ranger

It looks like a good fit to the company’s profile

Hyundai has been away from the pickup truck market and there is no logical reason for it. However, the company unveiled a pickup truck concept called Santa Cruz in 2015 and it finally looked like the automaker has realized what it’s losing out on. People would’ve expected Hyundai to launch a full-fledged, hardcore truck to leave a strong impression, but the Santa Cruz is a unibody pickup truck, which means that the automaker is offering a jack-of-all-master-of-none kind of a truck. However, a rendering artist named Enoch Gabriel Gonzales has envisioned a truck which he calls Tarlac, and it falls in line with the company’s design philosophy. Looks neat, huh?

2019 Hyundai Vision T Plug-In Hybrid Concept

It could preview the design of next-generation SUVs and hybrids

The 2019 Hyundai Vision T Plug-In concept is an SUV concept that the Korean automaker introduced at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. A somewhat futuristic design with unique styling cues, the Vision T showcases a brand-new design language. It’s also described as global, so it could inspire a new lineup of SUVs. The crossover is slightly larger than the Hyundai Tucson and it’s a plug-in hybrid. Sadly, there’s no info about the drivetrain and no photos of the Vision T’s interior. But let’s find out what it could mean for the future of the Korean brand.
