Review: 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric first drive

Buyers who walk into a Hyundai dealer won't be disappointed by the Ioniq, whether they drive the PHEV or the EV. It's the Electric we're most excited about, though, because of what it represents for the local electric market. It'll be an introduction to electric power for lots of people and, rather than frightening them with an otherworldly driving experience, it manages to highlight the tech's benefits without feeling threatening, or strange...

Hyundai Kona EV, Kia e-Niro range downgraded

The long-range Hyundai Kona EV has had its range downgraded on the WLTP test cycle, after the company discovered its external test agency hadn't followed the correct test procedure.

The re-rating means the 39kWh Kona is rated for 289km instead of 300km, while the 64kWh model is officially good for 449km rather than the 470km initially promised...

2019 Hyundai Tucson Elite 2.0 GDi 2WD review

There's a lot to like about a front-wheel-drive Tucson with luxury levels of kit and a relatively reasonable price tag. But the naturally aspirated petrol engine with its six-speed auto transmission, well, that's another matter entirely.

Are track days a thing of the past? Doing a tarmac rally in the Hyundai i30 N

I remember watching Targa Tasmania one year and thinking how cool it would be to get a race car and have a crack. It wasn’t long before I realised it’s much harder than it looks, it’s much more expensive than it looks, and I’d likely run out of skill shortly before spearing off the road into a tree...
