2016 Hyundai i40 Tourer Diesel review

It’s one of many almost forgotten cars in an almost forgotten segment. Medium passenger cars are being outsold dramatically by small cars and all forms of SUV’s. We’re casting many of them out into the wasteland but are we making a mistake? This is the Hyundai i40 and if you take a closer look, it will give you a lot to think about...

2014 Hyundai i20 Active Review

The Hyundai i20 Active appealed to me, as it appeared to be built well, and it was awarded a five star safety rating. Since traveling 40,000km I've noticed the interior isn't of the best quality, its constructed from hard black plastic, with cheap silver painted plastic, in my experience the silver painted plastic on the A/C knob and the stereo has worn off...

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander CRDi (4x4) Review

Nearing 2 years and my highlander hasn't missed a beat. It has lived up to all rave owner reviews, which turned out to be more honest and objective than the paid reviewers who are constrained in giving this car too much praise, lest they offend the brand snobs that make up good percentage of their readership...

2015 Hyundai Tucson Elite (AWD) Review

I need to preface this review by stating that I don't own this car (as it is a company car) and as such have no bias towards writing a glowing review (as some might suggest) because I feel the need to do so to justify why I bought the car to begin with. I've driven many company and rental cars over years and have to say I've never been a fan of Hyundai because of performance and quality until now...

For the last few months I have been in between cars, and have been handed the keys to a number of vehicles while I await my new chariot.
