Hyundai Santa Cruz ute a "speculative product"

The Hyundai Santa Cruz ute concept shown at the Detroit motor show in January this year remains a “speculative product” that isn’t in the company’s mid-term Australian launch plans. That’s the line from Hyundai Australia COO John Elsworth, who told us this week that any prospect of a much-needed utility vehicle of any stripe remained up in the air at best...

Hyundai Tucson to chase Mazda CX-5

Hyundai Australia is confident of making a big splash in the medium SUV segment when it launches the new Tucson around July 2015, seeking to outsell all rivals with the possible exception of the dominant Mazda CX-5.  The Korean brand appears to be pulling out all the stops to ensure its new SUV staple capitalises on Australia’s obsession with high-riding soft-roaders...

Hyundai i30 Turbo ruled out for Australia  

There will be no Hyundai i30 Turbo sold in Australia. The newly developed Hyundai i30 Turbo debuted at the 2015 Geneva motor show with a punchy 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine producing 137kW/265Nm and six-speed manual transmission. Such a model would have given Hyundai Australia a more sporting option than the current SR variant, which is powered by a 2...

The new-look 2015 Hyundai i30 Series II brings a major range restructure that will likely make the South Korean brand’s small hatchback more enticing to new car buyers. The Hyundai i30 line-up now kicks off with the Active base model, while a new Active X variant builds upon that specification with some extra niceties, and is tipped to take the majority of sales - 50 per cent, by Hyundai's estimates...
