2015 Hyundai Sonata Review: Long-term report two

When the senior journos here at CarAdvice informed us that we had secured the 2015 Hyundai Sonata as our latest long-termer, I have to admit that I did not sprint over to the key bowl and beg for a drive. My limited imagination has always struggled to see where mid-sized sedans have a place within the spectrum of Australian car buyers’ needs or wants...

The 2015 Hyundai i40 sedan and Tourer range is now cheaper, more streamlined and has better fuel economy. It's still a sharp-looker, too.

Hyundai i40 Premium v Hyundai Sonata Premium: Comparison review

Australia’s mid-sized sedan market might be smaller than a few years ago, but Hyundai is one brand that for good or bad remains intent on covering the bases. In one corner is the recently released Sonata, which we’ve compared favourably against a number of segment rivals such as the Mazda 6 (as you can read here)...

Hyundai Sonata Premium v Ford Mondeo Titanium : Comparison Review

The medium sedan segment has been getting tougher with every new model. Now the equal top of the class Hyundai Sonata, goes head to head with the new arrival, the Ford Mondeo.

Medium Sedan Comparison : Toyota Camry v Mazda 6 v Hyundai Sonata v Subaru Liberty

Medium cars are struggling in the face of an SUV uprising. Quite literally, the raising-up of body height and seating position has allowed the sport utility vehicle to act both like a magician entrancing customers, and a grim reaper destroying traditional sedan and wagons. There are massive upsides for those buyers who are determined to fly in the face of fashion, however...

2015 Hyundai Veloster Sr Turbo Review

Love the veloster turbo. Hyundai made a bad choice with factory tires, but once I changed those out, the car is very smooth. Hugs the road on turns very little to no roll, and the seats keep me right where I'm supposed to be. Also, it no longer scares me when hitting a small bump in the road. I tend to use the sport shift and easily get 35-36 mpg on rural roads, 32 on high way driving spirited...

2010 Hyundai i45 Premium Review

This is my wife's Hyundai i45 and I'm not allowed to drive it too often unless it's to put petrol in or she's too tired on a country trip. We brought it as a demo unit with about 5000K's so the price was right otherwise I would not have bought it (maybe the spectacular styling might have won me over)...

2006 Hyundai Elantra Fx 2.0 Hvt Review

This is my first, and so far only car. It arrived on my family driveway through a series of weird events, and was sitting there with no one to drive it. So in a rush of student poverty, I decided to buy it from my parents at a very cheap price. Then I realised what I'd done. I'd bought a Hyundai...

2012 Hyundai i30 Elite Review

I have owned this car for 2.5 years and have covered a modest 32,000 kms. I must say that these 2.5 years have been excellent and trouble free. This is the the only car I have ever owned (amongst Japanese, Australian and Euro cars) that I have never had to raise any issues at service time for warranty or ever needed anything looked at, adjusted etc...

2015 Hyundai i40 Series II Review

People aren’t buying as many mid-sized sedans as they used to, but ironically enough, there have never been more great options out there. One of the underrated competitors is the Euro-styled Hyundai i40, which has received a mid-life update that brings a number of worthy drivetrain and suspension tweaks, and some welcome price cuts...

2015 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Series II Review : Road and Track - Read the article here. Visually, the Veloster SR Turbo is a lot more potent than its naturally aspirated siblings. The obvious giveaway is the enormous open front grille with a black finish. But it’s the oversized twin chrome exhaust tips make the brashest statement about this car’s performance intentions...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active X Review

Read the article here. This is the new Hyundai i30 Series 2. And this one in particular is the Active X, which Hyundai predicts is going to account for half of all sales of the updated line-up. What’s all the fuss is about? Let’s take a closer look and find out… The Active X is the second-tier model in the new i30 range, which has five variants in total...

Popular overseas, the motorsport series is brand-new in Australia and round one will be held in Queensland on August 4, 2015.
