2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
Super Bowl LIV Commercial: 2020 Hyundai Sonata - Smaht Pahk
Super Bowl LIV is just around the corner and ads from car manufacturers are starting to kick in. The latest commercial comes from Hyundai, which advertises its new Remote Smart Parking Assist feature with a handful of celebrities and the help of Boston accents. Yes, Smaht Paht isn’t a typo, it’s the actual name of the ad.
The Hyundai Santa Cruz is FINALLY Heading to the US Market
The Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup concept was unveiled in 2015 at the North American International Auto Show and, despite being well received, Hyundai has been on the fence about it - until now. After over four years, Hyundai has finally announced that it will be manufacturing the truck at its U.S. factory. Is it too late to the party, though?
2020 Hyundai Sonata
The 2019 New York Auto Show was not a very exciting event this year, perhaps because it clashed with the Shanghai Auto Show. But out of the few positives from the show, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata managed to hog a lot of limelight. Hyundai has taken a big stride in terms of the design and technology of the Sonata, and the results are evident. There is nary a thing that goes wrong with this car. So, will Hyundai be able to tip over the rivals with this new sensation?
Hyundai Has a Sonata N Line in the Works and It Will Have More than 275 Horsepower
The midsize Hyundai Sonata has been around since 1985, and the latest eighth generation is definitely the most exciting of the bunch. However, it looks like Hyundai will add even more heat to the four-door with a new N Line edition next year, as revealed during the 2020 Sonata’s debut at the New York Auto Show.
The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Debuts With a Look That Proves It’s Stepped Into the Premium Segment
As one of the most essential Hyundai sedans, the new 2020 Hyundai Sonata debut marks a pivotal moment for the Hyundai brand. With a revolutionary and bold design, new technology on board, and all-new architecture under the metal, some would even say that the Sonata reaches for the premium segment. While completely redesigned, and now inspired by the gorgeous Le Fil Rouge concept, the Sonata features a few bold styling novelties we have never seen before. More importantly, Hyundai stretched its wheelbase and length a little bit, while lowering the car as a whole. This is the trick everyone takes into account when making a clean, planted car. As a final touch, Hyundai reworked the interior to offer significantly more upscale ambiance and equipment.
Hyundai Santa Fe U.S. vs China Comparison: Which Taillights Look Better?
You should know by now that many European or U.S. vehicles are launched with longer wheelbases in China. Sadly, most of them aren’t available outside this country. Hyundai recently jumped on the bandwagon with a slightly longer variant of the Santa Fe, but there’s more to this SUV than a few extra inches between the front and rear axles. Hyundai went wild and completely redesigned the rear end.
The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe represents the fourth generation of Hyundai’s most noticeable SUV. On the market since 2000, we’ve seen it transform from a basic, compact SUV into something that’s a little closer to being midsized but also closer to the premium category. For 2019, it’s more attractive and more advanced than ever. With a new exterior look, more upscale cabin (with more space than ever), and a lineup of fuel-efficient drivetrain choices, you really can’t go wrong with the Hyundai Santa Fe. We actually got our hands on a 2019 model and put it through the paces. Our tester was a 2.0T model, so we had the turbocharged engine that was very enjoyable to drive. As you’ll find out from our driven review below, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is easy to enjoy.
2019 Hyundai Tucson N Line
The Hyundai Tucson N Line is a slightly beefed-up version of the company’s popular SUV. However, just like the N Line versions of the i30 and Elantra, this Tucson is more about sporty upgrades inside and out, as the engine remains unchanged compared to the standard model. Introduced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Tucson N Line boasts a sportier appearance and features a few extras inside the cabin. While the bundle is far from impressive, it marks the debut of the N Line package on the company’s SUVs. Not only will this package extend to other haulers, but it also previews a full-fledged Tucson N model. This SUV will have more power and will be able to tackle high-performance SUVs from Mercedes-AMG and BMW M. Until that happens, let’s have a closer look at the Tucson N Line.
The All-New 2020 Hyundai Sonata Has a Striking Face and Upmarket Interior
Hyundai has lifted the veil off its all-new eighth-generation 2020 Sonata sedan in Korea and what we’ve been shown is a new and revolutionary direction for the model. Not to say the outgoing seventh-gen Sonata isn’t a striking car, but it frankly isn’t aging that well (it looks like a melted Subaru,) and this 2020 model has a completely different vibe about it both inside and out. Hyundai has improved on its design a whole lot.
The 2020 Hyundai Santa Cruz Pickup Won’t Look Like the 2015 Santa Cruz Concept After All
Four years after dropping jaws on the floor of the North American International Auto Show, we learn the Hyundai Santa Cruz Concept could finally come to our lives in the next few years. Just don’t expect the production version to look anything like the concept that caused a ruckus in Detroit back in 2015. Time is the biggest culprit behind this shift. It’s been four years since Hyundai unveiled the Santa Cruz, and a lot has changed within Hyundai during that time. The company’s new decision-makers are taking a different approach from the regime that championed the concept’s production back then. It remains to be seen how the different stylistic approach affects the production model’s appeal, but that’s also just one of many questions that Hyundai needs to answer before the production pickup arrives.
2019 Hyundai Kona Iron Man Edition
Automakers are actively collaborating with movie franchises to create some stellar concepts that are definitely not real-world worthy. However, some of the car manufacturers are rolling out superhero movie-inspired editions that add a certain zing to the existing models, like the Jeep Renegade Batman vs. Superman Special Edition, Kia Sorento X-Men Edition, and the Isuzu Vehicross Iron Man Triathlon special. Now, Hyundai has revealed a tasteful example called the 2019 Hyundai Kona Iron Man Edition.
Now Unlock Your Hyundai Santa Fe Using Your Fingerprint
The fingerprint scanning sensor in phones is not a big deal anymore, but it is still a gimmick, in its baby stage, in the auto industry. It is, however, found on the Bentley Bentayga on the center console to hide and secure your precious valuables. However, it is slowly crawling into mass cars as well, as Hyundai is about going to implement fingerprint recognition technology in its premium SUV, the Santa Fe.
If You Were Excited About The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Diesel, Then We’ve Got Bad News For You
The 2019 Santa Fe created quite a furor when it was announced for the U.S. market. The reason behind it being that it was going to be the South Korean’s first model to feature a diesel engine. However, the automaker has now said that the Sante Fe diesel won’t be coming to the States after all.
2020 Hyundai Santa Fe N
Hyundai announced its high-performance N division back in 2013, and four years later it launched the first vehicle with this badge: the i30 N. With the Veloster N following in early 2018, everyone is now wondering which nameplate will get the next performance update. Some of the company’s crossovers will also get the N treatment, and word has it that the Kona and Tucson might be first in line. But, what if Hyundai also made an N version of the Santa Fe? The SUV looks quite sporty in standard trim, and those aggressive N features would turn it into a menacing hauler and a unique vehicle in the affordable market.
Although Hyundai did say that there are plans to create N-badged crossovers, these aren’t a priority for the Korean brand. The Santa Fe is probably even farther down the line, but it would be the best-looking SUV with the N badge. And, it would also be a reasonable proposition for the recently launched Ford Edge ST. Although the idea seems a bit far-fetched right now, the Santa Fe N could happen sometime in late 2019, after Hyundai unleashes similar versions of the Kona and Tucson. Until that happens, let’s take a closer look at what it might bring to the table in the speculative review below.
Continue reading to learn more about the Hyundai Santa Fe N.
The Hyundai Santa Fe just entered a new generation, bringing about much better looks, nicer materials, more luxury, more room than ever, and an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission to go with it. With that in mind, we were highly impressed by the new exterior design, so we decided to honor the new Santa Fe by making it our wallpaper of the day. We’ve included our hand-picked favorite but also threw a gallery in at the bottom of this page to give you a wide selection if you’re like to make your own choice. Go ahead and check them out – there’s not much in life that is free, but these certainly are.
Hyundai Engineers Are Working Hard to Get a Green Light for the Kona N
The idea of a Kona N has been bouncing around, well, pretty much since the N sub-brand was announced. The shot callers over at Hyundai have yet to give the official green light, but Albert Biermann – the head of the N sub-brand – has given his people the okay to start working on a test mule. He hopes that a well-built test mule will give the head honchos something to believe in and ultimately get their okay to proceed with a real build.
“I’ve told them [the engineers] to build the car, and we’ll see what happens with getting it approved,” said Biermann. “It has to be the i30 N powertrain, really. Of course, we can give Kona different specifications on suspension and steering, although there are some common components we can use in that area as well, because it’ll be front-wheel drive, like the i30 N. But we already know that it has to be that car’s engine and gearbox for the Kona N, yes.”
With that in mind, The Kona N will probably be powered by the 247-horsepower version of the 2.0-liter from the i30 N. Sure, Hyundai could go with the 2.0-liter that’s tuned to 271 horsepower for the i30 N Performance Pack, but it isn’t likely – at least not at first. There’s no ruling out a hotter Performance Pack for the Kona N as well which would unlock that extra horsepower. There’s no word as to whether or not it’ll get that electric front differential from the i30N, but it’s not exactly out of the question either.
For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens, but you can probably expect the Kona N to show up before the Veloster N or the i30 N Fastback. For what it’s worth, the i30N should have a refined suspension, refined steering, and transmission, so that’s what you should expect from the Kona N as well.
