2022 Hyundai Tucson
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
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.
2021 Hyundai i20 N
The 2021 Hyundai i20 N is the high-performance, range-topping version of the subcompact i20 hatchback. The third N-badged model from the Korean company, the i20 N joins the slightly bigger i30 N and Veloster N.
Unlike its larger siblings, the i20 N features a smaller, less powerful engine, but it looks just as mean on the outside. Does it have enough oomph to compete with popular models like the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Ford Fiesta ST? Is it a match for the new and wild Toyota GR Yaris? Let’s find out in the review below.
Hyundai May Have Just Priced the Veloster N Out of Relevance
The Hyundai Veloster N is one of the most capable hot hatchbacks on the market, and it’s about to be even more capable. The 2021 Veloster N features a higher output, a new dual-clutch transmission, and a plethora of new standard equipment - a lot of which were classified as options in earlier models. Does this shift in standard equipment and improved output justify a significantly higher price tag, though?
Despite the crossover madness in recent years, the sedan niche is still one of the most popular and competitive segments when it comes to choosing your next daily driver. This is why the Hyundai Elantra is already in its seventh generation. Over the past decade, the Korean brand has been on a crusade to steal as many clients as possible from the likes of Toyota and Honda – brands that dominate the compact sedan segment with the Corolla and Civic models.
The Hyundai Tucson Has an All-New Look and Some Impressive Features
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.
2021 Hyundai Santa Fe - What’s New for 2021?
Hyundai revealed the 2021 Santa Fe, which is supposed to be a facelift but features some big changes. The current-gen SUV was released in 2018 and just over two years later, the company has refreshed it.
You’d expect the standard aesthetic changes and upgrades, but for the 2021 model, Hyundai has moved the Santa Fe to a new platform altogether. The South Korean automaker has also added new colors to the palette. There are many changes in the tech department as well. Is it right to call this a mere facelift?
This Rendering Of A Hyundai Pickup Truck Looks Ready To Take On The Likes Of Ford Ranger
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?
2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
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 Palisade Leaked Ahead of L.A. Debut
The Hyundai Veloster N Heads to the U.S. to Take On the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus
The all-new Veloster will be introduced to the world at the Thunderhill Raceway track in Northern California, before its official market launch later this year. What makes this Veloster special is that it’s the first ‘N’ model from the South Korean brand here in the U.S. The Veloster N has been developed at Hyundai’s facility at the Nurburgring, and it poses a serious threat to the hot-hatch market.
Hyundai has come a long way. Like, a really, really, long way. Remember the old Hyundai Accent? It was a strangely underwhelming machine even when new. Last night I was strolling through the streets and suddenly came across the new Hyundai i30 (the Elantra GT.) It was dark outside, the car was black, and you know what, the new i30 did not look underwhelming. Not a bit. It’s a hatch I wouldn’t mind driving, owning or, in its most potent N form, racing. Now, the Europeans get a new version of the i30 to spice the things up a bit. The N Line! I did not use “spice up” only by chance. Hyundai actually titled the press release with “Spice up your driveway,” and I get them. With body additions inspired by the top of the line i30 N, the new i30 N Line feels lively and rambunctious. Especially in red.
When Hyundai debuted the 2019 Hyundai Veloster at the Detroit Auto Show jaws hit the floor, stars glowed a little brighter, and robes in hotels all around Detroit opened for high-level Hyundai execs. Okay, that’s a little extreme, but it was pretty jaw-dropping, and it grabbed a ton of attention. The Veloster was back, and it came back with a vengeance, sporting a whole new look, more powerful drivetrains (including an N-tuned model,) and a pretty nice interior for a car coming from a company that was once known for economy cars. This time around, the Veloster is here to serve as a very strong proposition in the hot-hatch market, aiming to put cars like the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Fiesta to shame. Power output comes from a 2.0-liter that’s good for 147 ponies or a turbocharged, 1.6-liter mill that’s good for 201 horsepower. And, now that we’ve had a chance to look back on it, we thought it was a good idea to pay it a little tribute and make it our wallpaper of the day. Check out our hand-picked favorite below.
2018 New York International Auto Show - Worst In Show
We saw loads of good stuff at the New York International Auto Show this year, including a variety of sultry luxury machines like the Cadillac CT6 V-Sport and Audi RS5 Sportback, not to mention the stunning new Essentia EV GT concept from Genesis. However, as is inevitable these days, we found plenty of less-than-desirable debuts as well, five of which we’ve listed here for your communal derision.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
Hyundai has been made its Santa Fe SUV since 2000. When it was first introduced, the Santa Fe was a compact crossover, but these days, its grown a bit closer to mid-size territory. Three generations have come and gone since the original 2001 model year, with the second-gen appearing at the Detroit Auto Show in 2006, and the third-gen debuting at the New York Auto Show in 2012. We last saw the Santa Fe in its refreshed third-gen form at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, but now, there’s a fourth-gen arriving to tempt buyers. Recently introduced at the Hyundai Motorstudio in Goyang, the 2019 Santa Fe brings with it a fresh exterior aesthetic, new gear in the interior, a premium cabin layout, extra passenger space, and a new eight-speed automatic transmission to boot.
All told, it’s a solid lineup of features, but that’s what you need these days keep pace with the horde of competition already out there. Hyundai doesn’t seem too worried, though. The Santa Fe is the brand’s best-selling SUV in the U.S. market, moving as many as 1.5 million units. Look for further SUV models from Hyundai in the future, but for now, read on to find out what makes the Santa Fe so desirable.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT – Driven
The Hyundai Elantra GT is completely new for 2018, bringing with it a very European flair to the longstanding Elantra GT nameplate. But despite its Elantra name, the GT version isn’t a hatchback version of the current Elantra sedan. Rather, the 2018 Elantra GT is a renamed 2018 i30, which is sold around the world. The i30/Elantra GT rides on a shorter wheelbase and have different interior stylings than the Elantra sedan.
So what’s that mean for Hyundai-shopping Americans?
It means the 2018 Elantra GT is a surprisingly classy and solid hatchback. Its fit and finish are impressively upscale, and its long list of features reiterates Hyundai’s value proposition. The GT even does hatchback things well, slotting between the Volkswagen Golf and Honda Civic Hatchback in cargo volume behind the second row. Fold the 60/40-split seats down, and the GT outdoes the competition by no less than two cubic feet.
Keep reading for the specifics and driving impressions of the 2018 Elantra GT.
