(April 21, 2024) The second-generation Hyundai Kona compact crossover is here and I found it improved in almost every aspect from the first generation including technology, interior size, and styling. The styling part is, of course, in the eye the beholder and it has garnered some negative reviews. There wasn't much — other than interior space — to gripe about with the first-generation Kona. Don't forget it was named North American Utility of the Year in 2019.

(April 7, 2024) As car buyers are shying away from purchasing fully electric cars they are not abandoning electrified vehicles, voting with their pocketbooks for hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions that in addition to featuring electric motors and batteries are backed up by gas engines. Makes sense at least until the public EV charging infrastructure is expanded and the myriad of other EV concerns are put to rest.

2024 Hyundai Kona N-Line



PHOENIX — Originally introduced and launched for the 2018 model year, Hyundai Kona, the subcompact crossover gets fully redesigned for its 2nd generation 2024 model year.

(February 24, 2024) Hyundai seems to have hit a hit a sweet spot in the plug-in version of its Tucson Plug-in SUV with only minor updates the last couple of years since introducing the PHEV model in the 2022 redesign. The Plug-in (or PHEV) Tucson comes with a nice catalogue of standard features and actually provides a perkier ride than gas-only versions with the 1.6-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder gas engine-electric motor drivetrain delivering a combined 261 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Hyundai Ioniq 6 — A compelling EV sedan

(April 30, 2023) The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 6 is the  stylish twin of the Ioniq 5 crossover, but in sedan clothing. While most people — it would seem based on sales of crossover SUVs — would prefer a hatchback and a slightly higher stance, we have not fallen out of love with the once-ubiquitous sedan. And if driving electric was as simple as picking out a product we could afford, we would right now be quietly slinking around town in our 2023 Ioniq 6.

Hyundai Elantra Hybrid — 50 mpg without a cord

(April 23, 2023) In less than a year we've driven the two Hyundai Elantra models on opposite ends of the automotive spectrum. The performance-packed Elantra N on one end and the extremely economical Elantra Hybrid on the other. Talk about 180 degrees. The N can churn out 286 horsepower and scoot from 0-to-60 in 4.9 seconds. The Hybrid can achieve 50 miles to the gallon if driven sensibly. An Elantra for dad on his weekend hijinks and a car for mom picking up the kids from school and doing the grocery shopping.

Hyundai Santa Fe — A great family value



By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(April 9, 2023) The Hyundai Santa Fe, which was all-new for the 2019 model year, is a stylish and practical crossover that offers a roomy two-row cabin, an ample selection of features, decent performance and gas mileage from three engine choices, and very competitive pricing. And all Hyundai vehicles come with one of the most generous warranties in the industry.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 — An electric vehicle with all the right stuff

(March 19, 2023) While the entire "everything electric" push continues at breakneck speed, there's considerable argument against this massive trillion dollar effort. We won't get into the negative side in this review. We will dwell on the positive, and we positively love the dozen or so electrics we have been privileged to drive and road test over the past couple of years. And some we love more than others.

Hyundai Kona N — Driving thrills in a small crossover

(February 26, 2023) Hyundai's Kona N is the "Ultimate Driving Machine" for the those of us on a budget. It's wildly fun to drive never mind that its a subcompact crossover SUV and a member of a rather large family that offers four ways to travel. In addition to the N, the Kona klan consists of the standard model that is motivated by a 147 horsepower four-cylinder engine paired to a continuously variable transmission, a turbocharged N-Line model that elevates horsepower to 195 ponies, and an all-electric.
