Surprisingly Quick: 2018 Hyundai Kona 1.6T Test Drive

Competition in the subcompact crossover segment is getting pretty heated. Leading the segment are the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-3, and the Toyota CH-R. New additions like the Nissan Kicks and the Hyundai Kona are hoping to grab a piece of the pie. Now, most of these crossovers are available with an engine that produces around 140 horsepower, but the 2018 Hyundai Kona is one of the few models out there available with a second, more powerful engine option.

2018 Genesis G80 Sport Test Drive Review

In late 2015, Hyundai announced that it was creating its own luxury division called Genesis. This standalone brand made its formal debut with the introduction of the 2017 Genesis G80 and 2017 Genesis G90, which were rebadged versions of the Hyundai Genesis and Hyundai Equus, respectively. Genesis plans to have a six-model lineup by 2020, and with the smaller G70 on the way and three additional promising concepts (the New York Concept, Vision G Coupe Concept and GV80 Concept) previewing future cars and crossovers, that shouldn’t be a problem.

The mid-size luxury sedan segment is heating up and may have the most exciting offerings we have seen in quite some time. While there are some legends in the segment including the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 3 Series, and the Lexus GS, the segment is heating up with newcomers like the Hyundai Genesis (now known as the Genesis G80), the upcoming all-new Lincoln Continental and Volvo S90 along with the recently upgraded Cadillac CTS. With that in mind, we decided to take a look at the offerings and break them down…
