  The Hispanic Motor Press is among the most respected institution when it is a question of rating vehicles by and for the Hispanic community in the United States. Last week was the 13th of its annual awards program, where cars are rated by their styling, driving satisfaction, technology, safety, environmental impact, mechanical reliability, and value. The jury panel is composed of 22 national Hispanic journalists.    There are six ...
  As a car journalist and a car enthusiast, I love watching a documentary about car history. If you are like me, here’s one to put on your list, as Hyundai just released its all-new documentary called ‘‘Defying Convention’’ about the IONIQ brand\'s origins.    The documentary itself isn’t that long at 5:49, but it is indeed rich in information and full of interesting facts.   Here is a bit ...
  Never would I have thought in my life that Hyundai would reach the level it’s at today. When things first started for the Korean manufacturer in the 1960s, reliability was an issue. Hyundai went thru a challenging time in the 1980s and 1990s. Then, some products started to become attractive in the 2000s, and the Korean manufacturer has never stopped improving since then.    Hyundai has proven to be a very successful car manufacturer ...
  It is safe to say the Hyundai Ioniq 5 undeniably became one of the favorite electric cars on the market. I mean, look at it. It is the perfect interpretation of what a futuristic car would look like in the 80s. On top of that, the Ioniq 5 is full of tech and very practical. However, what helped the Korean EV SUV to stand out from the rest is its autonomy which is above average. These elements led to a nearly two-year-long waiting list to get ...
When you look at the Nexo, it seems to be usual and even very appealing. It is not too compact and not too spacious. It offers a modern interior and a high-quality finish. Then, why does nobody talk about it, and why have you never seen one on the road or even in a dealership? The Nexo isn’t just a concept car, and it is very real. The only thing is the Korean SUV is powered by a fuel cell system. In other words, it is a hydrogen vehicle.    Even ...
I like to say there are two types of car manufacturers when it comes to the design of a new model. Some play it safe, and they offer something that is not so different than the rest of their lineup. Others, like Hyundai, make a bold move by reinventing the wheel each and every time.    The Ioniq 6 is by far the most audacious and creative vehicle presented by the manufacturer. I mean, Hyundai showed us a plethora of unique concepts over ...
The Hyundai Kona quickly became one of the favorites in its category, and the subcompact Korean SUV\'s popularity hasn\'t stopped increasing yet. We can attribute the Kona\'s success to too many elements, but what makes the small SUV really stands out from the competition is the variety of models and powertrain it is offering. It is even available in the N version, which packs 276 hp and 289 lb-ft of torque which is very impressive.    However, ...
The 2023 Hyundai Palisade\'s popularity hasn\'t stopped growing since it was first introduced on the market a couple years ago, thanks to its relatively low price for its size. The Korean SUV is also full of high-tech systems, and it is pretty luxurious too.    The Palisade lineup has slightly changed for 2023 in Canada, with the SUV now being limited to three trim levels. The Essential entry-level trim has been slashed, leaving the Preferred ...
  First things first, we should start by identifying what EV can mean. In some cases, this can make the reference to fully electric vehicles, but it can be used for electrified vehicles as well. This means anything that is powered partly or entirely by electricity, including hybrid and plug-in hybrid systems.    There are a lot of acronyms in the automobile industry, and this can be confusing when talking about electrified vehicles. ...
Some studies recently showed that the average price for a brand-new vehicle is around 45 000 $ which is a lot of money, especially for the average household. Luckily, there are some options, such as the Hyundai Venue. This is by far the most affordable SUV on the market, with a base price of 20 853 $ and we are talking about Canadians’ dollars here. How is that even possible, you might say?   Well, Hyundai has always been a believer in ...
Hyundai recently unveiled two very interesting concepts in the form of a performance EV sedan and coupe. One is called the RN22e, which is basically a high-performance version of the upcoming IONIQ 6. The second concept is a Coupe based on two other concepts called the N Vision 74, and this one as a fuel cell powertrain. With all the love these concepts received when they were unveiled, Hyundai proved there is a place for performance EVs on the market.    Since ...
  If there is one thing I admire about Hyundai, it is the audacity and the innovation the Korean manufacturer put in every new vehicle. Hyundai succeeded in pretty every new segment it went in, and this led to the creation of two new brands, Genesis and Ioniq. There is literally no other car manufacturer that was able to accomplish the same thing in the modern car era. And not only that, but Hyundai is also one of the only car companies capable ...
  Following Audi, Volkswagen, and many others, Hyundai recently announced that they would no longer work on the development of new combustion engines. This decision might seem radical, but the Korean manufacturer is a fear believer in an all-electric future for the automobile industry. Well, this is one way to do things because there are many rumors surrounding Hyundai about hydrogen fuel cell cars. We know that the Korean manufacturer recently ...
