Best Cars Of 2021

Best Cars Of 2021

Our list is made up of some of the most significant models that stood out this year

With the pandemic still looming over our heads, 2021 was a pretty action-packed year for the auto industry. Sure, you had challenges, with automakers having to contend with issues like chip shortages, causing delays to consumers. But regardless, the show had to go on and we got some pretty cool cars making their debut, predominantly towards the latter half of 2021.

Hyundai Veloster N DCT vs Honda Civic Type-R - Can The Small Korean Run With One Of The Best?

Hyundai Veloster N DCT vs Honda Civic Type-R - Can The Small Korean Run With One Of The Best?

Hyundai Veloster N DCT takes on the Honda Civic Type-R; will quick shifts be enough to beat the Japanese hot hatch?

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.

Hyundai Promises More N Performance Models, And I'm Not Sure It's a Good Thing

Hyundai Promises More N Performance Models, And I’m Not Sure It’s a Good Thing

Unpopular Opinion: Hyundai Doesn’t Need More N Models – At Least Not The Ones It’s Going To Make Anyway

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….

The 2022 Hyundai Kona N IS Basically A Bigger Veloster N

The 2022 Hyundai Kona N IS Basically A Bigger Veloster N

Veloster N power, nearly 300 horsepower, and a 5.5-second sprint to 60 mph are among the highlights

The “hot SUV” market might be slowly but continually growing with more and more manufactuers starting to offer performance SUVs, but most of them fall outside the affordable category. The Mercedes-AMG GLA 45, for example, starts at $54,500 while something larger like the BMW X6 M commands six-figures. And, that’s where the Hyundai Kona N comes into play – you can have decent performance, sporty styling, and a price tag that probably won’t go much higher than the $35,000 mark. So what does the Kona N bring to the table?

Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

Can the Volkswagen Golf GTI still manage in the increasingly crowded hot hatch market?

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered the forefather of the hot hatch segment. The first Golf GTI was introduced in June 1976 and has been going strong ever since. Nowadays, the Golf GTI is in its eighth generation and is still one of the best all-around performers in the segment. It’s also sold both in Europe and North America, which is not something that can be said for all the cars on the list. With that being said, the modern hot hatch scene is as dynamic as ever and many new contenders for the best hot hatch title. Here are some of the best alternatives that aim to de-throne the GTI.

Brace for another crossover that’s been drinking from the performance spring

Hyundai May Have Just Priced the Veloster N Out of Relevance

Hyundai May Have Just Priced the Veloster N Out of Relevance

Is Hyundai’s new hot hatch more expensive than it should be?

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?

2021 Hyundai i30 N

2021 Hyundai i30 N

The 2021 Hyundai i30 N packs more punch with the Performance Package and the VW Golf GTI might be in trouble

The 2021 Hyundai i30 N is the facelifted version of the high-performance hatchback that the Korean company introduced back in 2017. The mid-cycle refresh doesn’t bring radical changes, but it does improve the car’s exterior design and adds new technology inside the cabin. The 2021 i30 N also comes with a more powerful Performance Package. But is it finally good enough to take on the popular Volkswagen Golf GTI and Ford Focus ST? Does it have what it takes to go against the new-for-2021 BMW 128ti? Let’s find out in the review below.

The Hyundai i20N Could Shake Up the Subcompact Segment

It’s been four years since Hyundai launched its high-performance N division in 2016, and the Korean brand already introduced two models. The i30 N debuted in 2017, while the Veloster N arrived in 2019. Come 2020 and Hyundai is preparing the release of the i20 N.
