Hyundai introduces seven-year warranty as a limited offer

Hyundai has introduced a seven-year warranty across most of its model range – up from the industry-first five-year coverage it introduced 20 years ago. However, according to a confidential dealer bulletin obtained by CarAdvice, the factory-backed extended warranty only applies to certain Hyundai vehicles ordered and delivered from the beginning of October through to the end of December 2019 – with “no exceptions”.

2020 Volvo XC40 Electric sketched out, includes 'frunk'

The design of the Volvo XC40 Electric, the company's first EV, has been teased ahead of its launch on October 16, European time. Externally the electric XC40 will feature a cleaner rear bumper design as it has no need for tailpipes, while the covered up grille has plenty of space to hide the sensors required for the car's new Advanced Driver Assistance System.
