2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium review

I always liked the i30, and when this model came out, it set in stone that we needed one. The price point is perfect for what you get, and the list of standard features on this car is one of the longest I have seen. For ride comfort and lack of cabin noise, it would have to be one of the best in its class in my opinion. It just irons out bumps in the road...

2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander CRDi (4x4) review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review. This was to be my first new car. I had owned 11 vehicles before this in 50 years of driving. My wife thought it was too high, and when I would go around a corner, I could see her gripping the seat thinking it was going to roll over. Our first big trip was Sydney to Perth, and by then it had 10,000km on it...

2013 Hyundai i30 SE review

I purchased this car new in 2013 after seeing it in the Hyundai showroom. I hadn't seen a three-door i30 before, but there are thousands of five-doors! I was impressed with the look (especially in black) and the comfort when I first sat in it; the front seats are very comfortable...

2013 Hyundai i30 Premium review

  Almost four-and-a-half years ago, I bought a Hyundai i30 Premium for about $32K. My main purpose was to get a car with good fuel economy, and practical aspects like interior space, material quality and reliability. I have covered over 76,000km mostly in and around Sydney...

2002 Hyundai Accent Gl review

A phenomenal car new and used. As a kid growing up, I have many memories of the whole family squishing into the first car my parents ever purchased brand-new. It was an exciting day when dad brought home a brand-new small car. And small it was, with three growing boys squished in the back of this small two-door hatch...

2015 Hyundai Veloster SR Turbo review

  I originally bought this because I was after a smaller car. I also wanted a car with features I hadn’t had before – sat-nav, sunroof and leather seats. It had everything I was after and at a great price. Meaning, I was paying a house deposit to get all the new technology. I got mine in the matte-grey colour, which I’ve been loving as well...

2012 Hyundai ix35 Highlander (AWD) review

Well, I suppose I should stop whingeing. Going back many years, this car would have been space age, but as of today it's getting a little primitive. It still needs to be updated on a lot of features. Accessibility and seat padding seem to be falling behind compared to the old cars, but the safety features are pretty good...

2017 Hyundai Elantra Elite 2.0 MPi review

I had a Ford Territory and always owned Australian-made, and now that I do not have that option and my lifestyle has changed, I decided to go with what best suits my lifestyle and the best value for my hard-earned dollar without breaking the bank. My partner purchased an i30 and I was impressed driving that, but needed something bigger...

2016 Hyundai Accent Active review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review.   As the theory of Yin and Yang teaches us, life provides opposites for the benefit of balance. Similar theories proclaiming opposites attract also exist as justification of balance. I became familiar with the reality of the concept after a quick coastal birthday trip provided for an easy juxtaposition of two very opposing vehicles...

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander (AWD) review

I purchased a new Tucson in November 2015 as a novated leasing package through work. This worked out well for me due to my line of work and repayments. The Hyundai replaced my 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec, which had a myriad of issues. From the get-go, it was issue after issue. The interior door handle came off. The Bluetooth would drop out constantly...

2016 Hyundai Elantra SR review

Background In 2016, I decided to trade in my manual Alfa Romeo for an automatic, as my wife wasn't too comfortable with manual transmissions. We were looking for something in the vicinity of $30–$40K, not a hatchback (wife doesn't like them) and with a bit of poke. After much contemplation, we ended up with an A3, a base WRX and the recently launched Elantra SR...
