Hyundai’s Nexo isn’t the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle in America but it is the first H2 car that actually makes sense. It’s attractive (IMHO), does up to 380 miles on a tank and has about the same room inside as the average mid-sized gasoline crossover. Of course the “chicken and egg” problem is ever […]
Is the Tucson too small? Palisade too big? Then the Santa Fe might be just what the doctor ordered. Hyundai’s mid-sized 2-row crossover is a practical 2-row crossover with more room and more premium surroundings than you find in the average compact CUV like a Rogue or RAV4 but it’s still easier to park than […]
Hyundai’s Veloster is the only subcompact in America that was designed to be fun. Other subcompacts are practical (HR-V), or funky (Soul), or engineered to be low-cost (Versa). But the Veloster is different. The base model puts style and handling above other attributes, the turbo trim delivers better handling and acceleration than just about any […]
Hyundai’s newest crossover is also the brand’s largest vehicle in America and arguably the most premium vehicle Hyundai has ever built. Under the hood we get a new, larger 3.8L V6 engine, an 8-speed automatic, more cargo room than before and styling that looks more concept car than production.
The 2018 Hyundai Kona and 2018 Ford EcoSport are two of the most recent sub-compact crossovers to land in America but the two couldn’t be more different. The Kona is an all-new design while the EcoSport is a tried-and-true design coming to us for the first time. The Kona drives like a lightly lifted hatchback […]
Hyundai decided to go in two directions with the Kona. The base 2.0L model targets the sales leaders in this segment like the Trax and HR-V directly while the 1.6L turbo is for the shopper looking to put a little extra zip and a little extra zag in their daily commute. With excellent handling, a […]
Thanks to an event called the Trail Trek Tour I had the opportunity to test a variety of every-day crossovers on some back-country trails in Virginia. The results were about as I expected but there were a few crossovers that did better than I thought. Why no Subaru? Why no Rogue? Why no X? The […]
FINALLY! We got our hands on Hyundai’s newest and smallest crossover, the 2018 Kona. I’ve been very excited about this little guy for a few reasons. It’s well priced, has an available turbo engine, the same capable AWD system as Hyundai’s latest crossovers, there’s an up-coming EV version and it’s well priced vs the competition. […]
