2019 Hyundai i30 N Line manual review

The SR-replacing N-Line brings the performance N look, without quite so much go, to the i30 package. It turns out the buck-banging manual warm hatch is quite a cracker.

Hyundai debuts multi-impact airbag

Hyundai has revealed the world's first multi-impact airbag, designed to protect drivers in collisions where the first collision isn't necessarily the most dangerous. In scenarios where the airbags might not deploy after the first impact – say a car crashing into another car, below the main airbag trigger threshold – the Hyundai system is capable of detecting the occupants' positions, and firing faster than the initial airbag system...

2019 Hyundai Kona hybrid spied inside and out

The Hyundai Kona crossover is available with both traditional internal combustion engines, and a fully electric drivetrain, so it makes sense an in-between version is also in the works. According to the photographers from our spy agency, the prototype seen here was filled up at a petrol station, but drove away in electric-only mode...

2019 Hyundai Tucson Elite petrol AWD v Jeep Compass Limited petrol

You could say Jeep needs a new Compass. The US 4x4 brand has lost its way in recent years, haemorrhaging sales locally for three successive years. It hasn’t helped that its Cherokee model that launched in 2013 has struggled to fire in the all-important medium-SUV segment...

Negotiating Christmas in the 2018 Hyundai iLoad

Double demerit points, largely desolate roads and barely any traffic leave me wanting one thing over the Christmas break – a commercial vehicle that isn't likely to encourage me to get into any trouble. The CarAdvice Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series wasn't quite ready to go from its first round of mods and with the requirement that I lug my huge 80-litre Engel fridge/freezer around over the break, the 2018 Hyundai iLoad presented itself as the perfect solution...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Mike Costello: Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander

Call me boring, but the new Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander is my choice. This $60,500 large SUV impressed me in so many ways during a comparison against key rivals that I wrote earlier this year. It’s one thing to make a supercar great, but we can’t forget to focus on cars that everyday people will drive, either...

CarAdvice Winners Circle: Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander

It’s difficult to find issues with this car, and unlike a lot of other Hyundais, there’s some extra-level style elements to match the substance. This is not a phone-in job. Perhaps befitting my persona, there are enough head-turning sex machines in our Winners Circle. The 2018 Santa Fe Highlander delivers a premium experience for regular families, and to me that’s equally worthy of celebration...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Kez Casey: Hyundai i30 N

Hyundai can’t make a hot hatch, can it? From the very moment the South Korean brand announced it would be creating its own performance division, the i30 N drew a line in the sand.
