2017 Hyundai Ioniq review

As one of the biggest players in the hybrid segment, Toyota has dominated with the Prius. But, Hyundai's Ioniq offers an equally green product, without the science project looks. Can it offer buyers a decent alternative?

2017 Hyundai i30 review

The third-generation Hyundai i30 is bigger and loaded with more tech than ever before. Does this Korean hatch have the goods to take on the Corolla and Mazda 3?

2017 Hyundai Sonata Active review

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Active is a comfortable mid-size sedan that would would be well suited to singles, couples and small families. So why isn't it on the radar?

2017 Hyundai Ioniq review

Read the full article here. There's nothing that screams hybrid more than a Toyota Prius. In fact, it's so popular across that world that over 10 million Prius liftbacks have been sold since the car was first revealed in 1997. Hyundai wants a slice of that lucrative green vehicle pie, which is why the company has invested millions into this car, the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq...

Honda Civic RS v Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo comparison

It was only July when the Honda Civic VTi-S outshone both the Skoda Octavia Ambition and Hyundai Elantra Active. Here though, we have just two rivals going head-to-head: the 2016 Honda Civic RS and 2017 Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo. And, based on their most recent individual reviews – the Civic RS scoring 8/10 from Mike Costello, the Elantra SR Turbo scoring the same from Matt Campbell – this has the potential to be a rather close-fought little battle...

Medium wagon comparison: Hyundai i40 v Mazda 6 v Volkswagen Passat

At the risk of flogging the proverbial horse, we often wonder why more people don’t buy mid-sized wagons over medium SUVs. We understand the appeal of the latter body type’s high riding position, with its greater visibility, ease of access and feeling of safety. But with some equanimity we'd counter that passenger car alternatives often offer more, for less...

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander (AWD) review

I honestly thought I would never see the day I would buy a Hyundai. This isn't to say I didn't think the brand had come a long way since the era of the Excel and Accent. I must also say that I am/was a station wagon man prior to having a family. I know debate rages about SUVs not being a driver's car and I get that...

2014 Hyundai Veloster Sr Turbo Review

Going from driving a BMW 525i to driving a SR Veloster Turbo over the last two years - which do prefer - The Veloster Turbo without question! Surprised? Well my Veloster is a heck a lot more fun to drive, it handles beautifully, and is more practical for my lifestyle...

2008 Hyundai Getz 1.6 Sxi Review

A Getz SXI. Who knew they made a “sporty” model. Don’t be jealous now. I recently handed it over to my sister as a runabout, the little Getz was a great idea at the time, but in reality didn’t work out. It was purchased about 12 months ago at 180,000kms to provide cheap transport for my 100km daily work commute while the other vehicle I owned (HSV Avalanche XUV) stayed home waiting for the weekend...

2001 Hyundai Grandeur XG review

Bought this car for NZD$2000 two years ago instead of the taxi fare from Auckland to my home. It had 180K on the clock and I've added another 30K. I had intended selling it but hey, sold my old Mercedes S Class instead. Great features on the Hyundai – memory driver's seat, electric seat adjustment, fantastic sounding stereo, dual zone climate control works as well as any can, auto dipping mirror...
