Hyundai Elantra — Loaded with technology and safety

By David Finkelstein

Competing with the likes of the Ford Focus, Mazda3, Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic, Hyundai Motors America has introduced the all new 2017 Elantra four door compact sedan. This newest addition is spotlighted with a striking and bold aerodynamic outer design. The car itself further includes an extensive array of safety features plus a modern yet comfortable interior coupled with class-above amenities.

2017 Hyundai Elantra



SAN DIEGO — I want to be perfectly clear: As much as automakers want you to believe that their particular brand and models are special and years ahead of the competition, the truth is, most all of them have state-of-the-art design, tech centers that employ essentially the same functions, close to the same horsepower and same fuel economy at about the same price. Virtually, they are the same cars with different logos emblazoned on the grille and rear deck lid.

Hyundai Genesis — Luxury and value combine

By David Finkelstein

Competing with the likes of Cadillac, Lexus, Infiniti, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi is the 2016 Hyundai Genesis sedan. Quite honestly and worth noting, there is a value story here as well! The base model has a starting price of $38,750. When we look at the bigger picture including creature comforts, performance, interior space and the level of luxury, Genesis is a “must consider” on you new car shopping list.

2016 Hyundai Tucson



ANN ARBOR, Mich.  — In the past year, car registrations have dropped 3.9 percent while light truck registrations have increased by 10.7 percent. Why then have Hyundai’s crossover utility vehicle sales fallen 14.5 percent over that same period? “The U.S. market is currently 56 percent truck and CUV,” says Dave Zuchowski president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America, “and this has made it hard for us to keep our sales momentum. It’s not that we don’t have the capacity to build these vehicles. It’s that we have to reallocate our current production from cars to light trucks.”

MINNEAPOLIS — Hyundai Motors has generated its sales momentum on the building blocks of reliability, attractive pricing and value for the money, its product mix, and an outstanding warranty that blankets their entire line-up. This tradition carry's forward for 2016 with its latest entry, the 2016 Tucson compact crossover SUV.

Hyundai Sonata Eco — Best of both worlds

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Perhaps the new 2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco is mislabeled. Yes there's an element of "Eco" — as in economical — to the new model, but we also discovered more than a hint of performance from the rather unique combination of a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid



HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — With a rolling bed of on-board advanced technologies, Hyundai Motors first took the wraps off of the all new 2016 Sonata hybrid and its sister product, the Sonata Plug-in hybrid, earlier this year at the Detroit International Auto Show. The 2016 version is here now and will soon go on sale representing the seventh generation of the award-winning and attractive sedan, and by far the most fuel efficient.

Hyundai Sonata — A more sophisticated appearance

By David Finkelstein

After a very successful run with the outgoing version of the front-wheel-drive Hyundai Sonata sedan, the company elected to completely re-engineer this popular five passenger automobile for 2015. The car's outer body design was respectfully dialed back somewhat and now has a more straight forward look to it.

Hyundai Sonata — Now with a more conservative stance

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

More than four years ago Hyundai answered the criticism that all mid-sized sedans look the same by stepping away from the stereotypical styling with the 2011 Sonata, a car so daringly different that it set a new tone for the design future of the popular segment. It was a smash hit not only for its good looks, but for its above-average performance, generous standard features, and improved build quality.

Lost in the vast array of new compact crossover products is the stylish, affordable and competent 2014 Hyundai Tucson. Although the Tucson was last redesigned several years ago, it stacks up well against such nameplates as the Escape, RAV4
, CX-5, CR-V and Cherokee.
