2017 Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo Review

Read the full article here. Who on earth wants a small, warmed-up sedan like this – the 2017 Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo? According to Hyundai Australia, there’s a chance that several thousand people do. In fact, the Elantra SR Turbo’s competitive set – including the Mazda 3 SP25, Nissan Pulsar SSS, Holden Cruze SRi-V and the recently released Honda Civic – accounts for a decent share of small car sales...

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...

Luxury sedan comparison part one: Hyundai Genesis v Jaguar XF v Infiniti Q70 v Lexus GS v Skoda Superb

What is luxury? Is it power? Is it control? Is it desirability? All-out plushness? Or just space? Is it a combination of all of those things? And if it is a combination, to what degree does cost and inclusions play a part in determining the luxuriousness of a car? That's what this test aims to find out: we have five sedans here that have some or perhaps all of those aspects covered, though none of them are the usual suspects from Germany...

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...

2015 Hyundai i30 Active X Review

Fuel economy in urban areas is disappointing, and it is always more than 10 litres per 100km. However other features far outweigh the disappointment of the real world economy not matching the numbers on the windscreen decal. For comparison, our 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5, returns around 8.0-Litres per 100Kms for urban driving...

1999 Hyundai Excel Sprint Review

In Hungary, the 1999 Hyundai Excel was known as the Pony, and wow did you want to have a ride in it. The way the sunlight cast over its sinuous, dark blue jelly bean 90's curves, those sultry headlights, and most of all, that proud 'Twin Cam' sticker that announced to the other exotica you'd just blitzed by that this, Sir, was the updated, 75kW version of Hyundai's magnificent and storied 1...

2005 Hyundai Elantra 2.0 Hvt Review

About a month ago I read an owner review of the 2016 Hyundai Elantra. This would be an unremarkable car for most readers of this site, but given that I have inherited a 2005 Hyundai Elantra as my “daily driver” (this car currently clocks up less than 5,000km per year, but I’ll get onto that later), I read this review with awe and amazement about what an accomplished car it is when compared to its ancestor...
