Compact Style: 2018 Hyundai Elantra Sedan Test Drive

After recent seat time with the midsize Hyundai Sonata and the subcompact Hyundai Accent, it only makes sense that Hyundai sent me the middle child for its sedan lineup, the compact Hyundai Elantra. The current Elantra sedan was just introduced for the 2017 model year, and the hatchback Elantra GT was added last year. With competition coming from the likes of the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Chevrolet Cruze, we drove a 2018 Hyundai Elantra to see how Hyundai’s compact sedan stacks up. And as an added bonus, we were…

Power Move: Genesis Tops 2018 J.D. Power Study

What a difference a year makes. The 2018 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study has been released, and one thing is clear — Hyundai is on a tear. Last year, the Korean automaker was eighth on the list, but this year, its Genesis luxury line shot to the top, knocking off venerable regulars like Lexus and Porsche. What’s even bigger news is that Hyundai basically owns the top three spots, as KIA (which it owns 30 percent of) is second, and Hyundai itself is third. Expect to see plenty of advertising pushing this…

Hyundai has clearly shown its ability to go up market with luxury sedans like the Genesis G80 and G90, but don’t think this means the automaker plans to abandon its roots. That’s where the 2018 Hyundai Accent fits in. Although car prices have definitely gone up since the 1986 Hyundai Excel – the Accent’s predecessor – went on sale for just $4,995, the all-new 2018 Hyundai Accent aims to prove that affordability is still a core value at Hyundai. We recently drove the new Accent decked out in its top…

Reverse Halo: 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Test Drive

When most automakers make a statement vehicle, it’s usually an expensive, high-performance vehicle — something along the lines of, say, a Chevrolet Corvette or an Acura NSX. Such halo vehicles are great examples of brand expression, but they’re often priced out of the reach of average buyers. Looking to put its most expressive vehicle in the hands of any driver, Hyundai has taken a “reverse halo” approach with the Veloster since 2011, and the quirky three-door hatchback ushered in its second generation for the 2019 model year (after skipping 2018)….

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Test Drive Review

As the line between small crossovers and hatchbacks continues to blur more each year, the market for traditional hatchbacks has picked up in the U.S. It isn’t hard to see why as the only major differences between the two segments usually consists of a few millimeters of ride height and slight visual cues (like grey exterior trim on crossovers). The completely redesigned 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT is lower, wider and longer than its predecessor, and unlike its rivals, the hatchback shares nothing with its Alabama-made sedan counterpart. That’s because this…
