Those who know me well know that I have a deep love for anything that burns gasoline. That being said, I am also someone who is curious and enjoys discovering new things. That's why I decided to test drive the Hyundai Ioniq 6.   The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is a bold car and it has caused quite a stir since its launch. It is the second model to join the Ioniq family after the Ioniq 5, a model which, by the way, is vastly different aesthetically. In ...
It can be said that Hyundai has hit a home run with the Kona, which quickly became one of the most popular models in its category after its arrival on the market in 2017. With its friendly appearance, practical size, and dynamic driving, the small SUV from the Korean manufacturer has everything going for it.   While the Kona isn't the cheapest vehicle in the Hyundai lineup, it's undoubtedly the one that offers the best value for money in the ...
The era of cars may be over as sport utility vehicles are all the rage today. Nevertheless, there are certain sedans that have survived this transition and continue to be very popular. This is the case with the Hyundai Elantra, a bold and highly competitive model. It must be said that the Korean manufacturer has gone all out in terms of both design and mechanics. Ultimately, the Elantra is also one of the most advanced cars in terms of technology ...
Hyundai is a manufacturer that never ceases to surprise us. Every time we think we've seen it all, the automaker introduces something new that can leave us speechless. The first generation of the Hyundai Kona was a complete, convincing product and a success across the board. In short, it was challenging to imagine how the Korean manufacturer could do better. Well, let me tell you that Hyundai has brilliantly demonstrated its expertise because the ...
The automotive industry has undergone significant transformation in recent years. While the massive influx of electric vehicles has marked the sector, what has suffered the most is the apparent abandonment of affordable vehicles by consumers. Is this really the case? In my opinion, it seems more like manufacturers have deliberately stopped producing genuinely interesting, affordable vehicles simply because it is less profitable. Fortunately, there ...
When we mention the word "truck," the first image that usually comes to mind is that of a heavy-duty vehicle capable of towing the moon, carrying enough wood to build a house, and even going where some ATVs dare not venture. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but you get the idea. The irony in all of this is that the majority of pickup truck owners use less than a tenth of their capabilities. Moreover, they have to deal with the inconveniences associated ...
Hyundai is a brand I greatly admire. It currently enjoys an excellent reputation for reliability, design, and technology. However, the Korean manufacturer never stops pushing boundaries, and that\'s what makes it strong. The Tucson is now a true benchmark in its category.   For 2024, Hyundai has streamlined the Tucson lineup by removing several versions from the offering, including the entry-level Essential model. This resulted in a significant ...
Photos of what appears to be the next generation of the Hyundai Santa Fe have been circulating widely on the web in recent days.   The Hyundai SUV seen in the various photos is radically different from the current Santa Fe with its square silhouette and robust look. However, this is not unusual for the Korean manufacturer, known for starting from a clean slate. That\'s exactly why we believe it is the next generation of the model.   The ...
The electrification of automobiles allows engineers to develop new technologies and sometimes rather unusual gadgets, such as the crab mode found on this prototype of the Ioniq 5.   Hyundai is not the first manufacturer to offer such a feature, which is also available on the Hummer EV and the Mercedes EQG. However, the Hyundai Mobis firm, which is responsible for the project, has taken the concept even further with the Ioniq 5.   The ...
After the regular variants of the Hyundai Elantra, it\'s now the turn of the sporty N version to receive an update. The improvements are mainly cosmetic, but they should allow the Korean manufacturer\'s sedan to stay competitive for several more years.   Although it\'s not a complete redesign, the 2024 Hyundai Elantra N arrives with a radical transformation that might make you think otherwise, especially when looking at the front. The headlights ...
Whether it\'s remote parking assistance, autonomous driving, or electrification, Hyundai has always been ahead of the competition when it comes to technology. In fact, the latest innovation that the Korean manufacturer is proposing and which could soon be found in a production model seems straight out of a science fiction movie.   It\'s a rolling and adjustable screen, the latest gadget developed by the division that deals with advanced technologies ...
While the market is full of large performance SUVs and exotic models, options are much more limited when it comes to small mainstream SUVs. Fortunately, Hyundai hasn't held back and the Korean automaker has decided to grab this market share with the Kona N.   The 2023 Hyundai Kona N is small, agile, and incredibly fun to drive. It is also very affordable given the performance it offers, making it truly one-of-a-kind. Hyundai has done an excellent ...
We can say that there was some action in New York this year, and we continue our series of unveilings with the Hyundai Kona, which gets a complete makeover for 2024. It is the second generation for the model, which has enjoyed frantic success since its launch in 2017.   The N Line and electric versions are still part of the Kona's offer, and the Korean manufacturer's SUV benefits from a larger 64.8 kWh battery.   Hyundai took advantage ...
When somebody talks about trucks, the first thing that usually comes to mind is an American icon such as the F-150, the RAM 1500, the Chevrolet Silverado, or the GMC Sierra. There are other options out there, and even though some people wouldn\'t call this a truck, the Hyundai Santa Cruz definitely is one, and one of the coolest too.   What makes the Hyundai Santa Cruz such an exciting vehicle is that it\'s not even a truck or just a truck. ...
  Hyundai went from being one of the sketchiest to one of the most appreciated and respected brands on the market.

So, you won’t be surprised to learn that not only one but two Hyundai models made a spot for themselves on the prestigious ...
Choosing the right vehicle may be easy for some people, but only for some of us. And I include myself in this second category. As a car journalist, I drive and test out so many cars within a year that making a choice for myself turns out to be a tricky task. Anyway, I am not here to tell you my odd preference, but more to help you if you have yet to decide what vehicle to buy.    An excellent way to start things is to choose a brand you ...
Hyundai recently launched a brand-new marketing campaign in which the IONI! 6 explains why electric vehicles are essential and why shifting slowly but surely to EVs is crucial.    In this campaign, Hyundai highlights that changing your gas-powered vehicle to an EV is more than changing your car. For most people, it is a lifestyle transformation.   Hyundai made a brilliant move by choosing Kevin Bacon as the star of its new commercials. ...
  2023 will be an exciting year for the American motorsport industry as Hyundai announced its return to the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge in the ST/TCR Champion division. The Korean brand will fight for a fourth-consecutive manufacturer\'s title in this series. Hyundai is already the only manufacturer that has won this title three times in a row since the beginning of the Michelin Pilot Challenge in 2004.    This series is far more ...
  It is a celebration time for Hyundai since the Korean manufacturer achieved a one-of-a-kind milestone by delivering its 15 millionth vehicle in the U.S. The vehicle is a 2023 Tucson, one of the most popular cars in Hyundai’s lineup.    The Hyundai story in North America started on 20 February 1986. The Korean manufacturer sold 168 882 vehicles in North America that first year. Believe it or not, the only model Hyundai offered ...
  The Hyundai Kona has been very successful since its launch in 2017. The Korean SUV got so popular Hyundai decided to expand its line-up with an electric version and a performance N version later. It is time for the Korean SUV to meet its subsequent evolution in the form of an all-new generation. There are many new things, but everything we liked about the first generation made its way into the new Kona.    The Brand-New Hyundai ...
With a waitlist of more than two years, it is safe to say the Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a massive success. Don\'t worry if you still need to reserve yours because the IONIQ family is just starting to expand, and the Korean Manufacturer still needs to be done with the IONIQ 5.    Hyundai recently showed us an 8-minute-long video about the N brand\'s future. Of course, the IONIQ 6 N RN22e and the N Vision 74 concept have always been part of the ...
  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.
