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...

2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium review

Let me just start this owner’s review with the disclaimer that value and practicality have, throughout the course of my life, made their way to the top of my priority list. When the time came to hand over my VW Up, I was adding performance to the list for the first time...

2014 Hyundai i30 SR review

I purchased my Hyundai i30 SR in 2014, having compared it against a number of other cars in the warm-hatch class. I made my purchasing decision based (in no particular order) on features, performance, ride, value for money, reliability and time for delivery. Almost two and a half years on, I can say that I am happy with my purchase...

2017 Hyundai i30 Premium 1.6 CRDi review

It’s not every day we get to buy a new car. And your first-ever brand-new car is important, not just because you’ve made that massive decision to buy a new car, but it has to be the right one. It makes a statement: of all the cars I could have picked, I chose this one. I bought my very first new car just last Friday...

2015 Hyundai Tucson Active X (FWD) review

Firstly, I would like to acknowledge CarAdvice for creating a great initiative for car aficionados and car owners alike to share their experiences, positive and negative. The model in review is a 2015 Hyundai Tucson Active X. For eagle-eyed readers, they would note that this is one of the four-star rated Tucsons...

2017 Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo review

About every three or so years, the yearning starts for a sportier looking car, some sleek coupe befitting my receding hair and growing flabbiness. I pitch an initial budget somewhere between a mid-range Audi, Jag or two-year old BMW with low mileage, and commence the test drives. The A5, XE and 428is are all fun, but somewhat underwhelming, then the frugal little angel over my shoulder starts in on me...

2002 Hyundai Sonata GL review

The year is 2002. Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears had just called it off, Kath and Kim aired, the VY Commodore and BA Falcon were introduced, and Hyundai was regarded as cheap and unexciting ‘Junk’. Now while that may have been the case back then, it didn’t stop the Sonata from being our first brand-new car...

2015 Hyundai Sonata Active review

I have driven Alfa Romeos for at least the last 10 years and I love them. There is a magical quality about them but they are also flawed in some ways. Recently, my wife had an operation and spent a week in hospital. The journey home was excruciating for her when I picked her up in my pride and joy with 19-inch low profile wheels and rock hard suspension...
