(May 1, 2022) Hyundai has created an eye-appealing N Line package for the 2022 Tucson, its popular crossover that has been met with rave reviews since it entered the marketplace late last summer. It doesn't need enhancements to look good, but the N Line takes the compact crossover to the next level in terms of driveway appeal.

(March 20, 2022) Buyers looking for their first electric vehicle should put the 2022 Hyundai Kona on their short list. It checked all the boxes for us after a week and 200 miles behind the wheel. It has stylish proportions, it's easy and fun to drive, its gauges and switchgear work exactly like a standard gas engine vehicle, and perhaps at the top of the list — it gets 258 miles on a single charge.

(March 9, 2022) Remember back to the mid 80s when the Yugoslavian-built Yugo was hyped as the least expensive new car on the market? Why buy used, when a new car is within reach at a very affordable price, Yugo dealers argued. That turned out to be very bad advice because the Yugo proved unsafe and unreliable. A five-year-old Civic or Corolla were much better purchases at the same price — hugely more reliable and with a better trade-in value.

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(January 30, 2022) The Hyundai Tucson compact crossover has been a perennial best seller for Hyundai, but it has encountered a difficult time making inroads against such rivals as the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4. That may change with the all-new fourth generation Tucson. The 2022 model is larger creating adult-sized passenger space in the second row, it has a striking new exterior design highlighted by a head-turning grille, and it gets significantly more gas mileage with two new hybrid variants.

(October 31, 2021) Hyundai is a bit late to the hybrid game, but based on four new vehicles — the Santa Fe and Tucson crossovers and the Sonata and Elantra sedans — the Korean company has mastered the gas engine/electric motor concept quite well and now offers a viable alternative to Toyota, the king of hybrids.

Hyundai Santa Cruz — A new kind of truck

(October 24, 2021) Our initial impression — it's a four-door 1970s Chevrolet El Camino. The idea back in those long-ago days was to take a mid-sized car and slam a bed on the back. It was popular at the time, and the El Camino can bring a lot of cash in restored condition today. In the case of the all-new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz, attach a bed to the back of the new Tucson — and abracadabra you have a truck. But, Hyundai says, don't call it a truck even though it has all the makings of a smallish compact pickup with its miniature four-foot-four-inch bed.

(October 10, 2021) The sub-compact Hyundai Kona crossover was named North American Utility of the Year in 2019 beating out such vaunted finalists as the Acura RDX and Jaguar I-Pace. Now in its fifth year of production, the 2022 Kona is a delightful blend of style inside and out, considerable capability with a stout turbocharged engine, and a value in the N Line performance trim with a starting price coming in below 30 grand.

(September 26, 2021) The Tucson compact crossover has been a perennial best seller for Hyundai, but even so it has encountered a difficult time making inroads against such rivals as the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4. That may change with the all-new fourth generation Tucson. The 2022 model is larger creating adult-sized passenger space in the second row, it has a striking new exterior design highlighted by a head-turning grille, and it gets significantly more gas mileage with two new hybrid variants.

Hyundai Santa Fe — A noteworthy refreshening



By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(August 8, 2021) Hyundai has a solid slate of crossover SUVs for most family's needs from the sub-compact Venue and Kona to the compact Tucson to the small mid-sized Santa Fe to the mid-sized three-row Palisade. It's a fresh lineup — the Tucson is all-new for 2022, the Kona has been significantly refreshed, the Palisade was introduced in 2020 as an all-new SUV — and the Santa Fe gets a big dose of freshening for 2022.

Hyundai Elantra — A compact car standout



By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(March 21, 2021) Compact crossover utility vehicles make up one of the hottest segments in the industry, but there's still demand for the once wildly popular compact cars such as the Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, Toyota Corolla — and the all-new 2021 Hyundai Elantra. The seventh-generation Elantra is a standout for its head-turning exterior design, advanced safety systems and infotainment connectivity, and the best overall warranty in the business.
