PostHeaderIcon 2018 Genesis G70 Sports Sedan Revealed

Hyundai is expanding the range of its Genesis luxury brand with the addition of a mid-size sports sedan. After the G90 and G80 we now get the 2018 Genesis G70 which is about the same size as a BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class. The car looks dynamics, has a ton of features, and comes with a range of good engines. 

All of that makes the 2018 Genesis G70 a goodly contender in this busy segment of the market.Upon launch customers will be able to select between a turbocharged 3.3-liter gasoline V6, a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline I4, and a 2.2-liter I4 diesel models. The options list also offers such high-tech goodies as Highway Driving Assist (HDA), best-in-class safety with nine standard airbags and active hood function, and a high level of connectivity with server-based voice recognition technology, using Kakao Corp’s artificial intelligence platform.

The V6 version is the sportiest Genesis G70 you can get with 370 horsepower, 0-100 km/h time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 270 kph. The 2.0 liter Turbo is also decent, with 252 horsepower,but the 202 horsepower diesel is for the eco-minded customer. Among the dynamic features of the G70 there are Launch Control, Dynamic torque vectoring system, Mechanical limited slip differential (M-LSD), Dynamic torque vectoring system.

True to the image of the brand as a luxury marque, Genesis G70 boasts a rather magnificent interior. the main highlights include including aluminum door handles, quilted leather door panels, metal speaker grills and high-quality soft touch surfaces plus Nappa leather seats. There is also a range of exciting colors for the exterior, reflecting the sporty nature of the compact sedan. The list include Platinum Silver, Carbon Metal, Marble White, Titanium Black, Racing Gray, Graceful Gray, Lapis Blue, Royal Blue, Blazing Red and Umber Brown.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Next-Gen Fuel Cell SUV

Some automakers are dead set on battery-powered cars being the way of the future, but others – like Hyundai – are leaning more toward hydrogen powered cars like the Next-Gen Fuel Cell SUV you see here. It’s not Hyundai’s first foray into the very limited hydrogen niche, but it will serve as the brand’s second hydrogen-powered model next to the Tucson Fuel Cell (known as ix35 in markets outside the U.S.) Dubbed as a preview for a production model, it is said to be a huge improvement over the current Tucson Fuel Cell, offering up more power, more reliability, more efficiency, and more range for every fill- up. As a near-production-ready concept, this SUV delivers 160 horsepower, an improvement of 26 ponies over the Tucson, and even offers better cold-start ability with reliable starting occurring in temperatures as low as 22 degrees Fahrenheit (-30 C) and it does all of this while boasting a unique look in comparison to the rest of Hyundai’s SUV lineup.

That’s right, the upcoming FCEV SUV isn’t based directly on the Tucson or the Santa Fe, so it’s a true-to-life standalone model. Well, unless Hyundai wants to get lazy and use it as the basis for either of those models down the line. It does sport some cues from the new Hyundai Sonata and Elantra on the outside, but under the metal, it’s busting at the seams with updated hydrogen technology. The biggest problem is the lack of hydrogen infrastructure in most areas, which is why the Tucson FCEV is limited to areas like California where there are some filling stations. But, the upcoming production FCEV is shooting for a range of about 800 km or nearly 500 miles – that should be more than enough to ease the pain associated with anxiety over the availability of hydrogen.

With that said, let’s dive on in a take a good look at this concept and talk about what we can expect from the upcoming production model.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Ioniq Roadable Synapse

Sometimes the whackiest ideas turnout to the most ingenious ones. That is why you need to pay attention to the Hyundai Ioniq Roadable Synapse, the first neuroscience-applied concept car. Born in part from ideas of conceptual artist Jonathon Keats the concept was presented at Art+Technology LAB.

Hyundai Ioniq Roadable Synapse imagines an alternative  to driverless cars by bringing cognition into play. They say the user’s cognitive processes could be interpreted to provide novel sensory experiences while driving. One way to manifest this is through adjustable audio effects.

Vehicle speed is conveyed to the driver by adjusting the tempo of the soundtrack playing on the stereo system; autobody aerodynamics are conveyed by adjusting the left-right speaker balance, vehicle RPM with an increase or decrease in soundtrack pitch, and driving efficiency by the level of audio distortion.

If you think about this hard and long you might be able to make some sense of it. Of course, Hyundai Ioniq Roadable Synapse is only a speculative idea, but as we said before sometimes you get marvelous insights from your oddest thoughts. Will this technology be applied to production car in near future? Well, it isn’t a really a technology to begin with. It’s an artist’s flight of fancy. But it is admirable nonetheless. Kudos for thinking outside the box.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Next-Gen Fuel Cell SUV Preview

Hyundai Next-Gen Fuel Cell SUV-0

This rather bulky but still cool SUV is the vehicle with which Hyundai wants to give us a glimpse of their future Fuel Cell efforts, both in terms of design and technology. Hardly anyone pursues FCEVs these days, but Hyundai Next-Gen Fuel Cell SUV is going to win back the public by offering excellent range, performance and durability.

A production version of the Hyundai Next-Gen Fuel Cell SUV you see here will be released early next year with hydrogen power and a design inspired by nature. To replace the ix35 Tucson Fuel Cell, the FC SUV boasts an efficiency level of 60%, or a 9% increase from the ix35’s 55.3%. With enhanced system efficiency, the new model targets a driving range of 800km on a single charge. That is great, but the question of where are you going to get your hydrogen remains unanswered as the infrastructure is still non-existent and there seems to be no real will and effort to remedy the situation.

Still, Hyundai Next-Gen Fuel Cell SUV wants to be the best it can be, so that when hydrogen fuel pumps finally became widespread it’d be ready to pounce. That is why it comes with a tank package that features three equally-sized tanks, as opposed to two of different sizes. What’s more, at 163 horsepower the new model’s maximum output is enhanced by 20% compared to its predecessor. This SUV is an important car in Hyundai Group’s ambitious plan to launch 31 eco-friendly models (Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors combined) to global markets by 2020.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis Google Assistant Has Some Cool Tricks

Genesis Google Home Remote Start

I know, you are probably thinking how did we survive this long with a digital assistant to remotely open our car doors and put the air con on, but actually now that we got them we may get so used to them that we can’t live without them. This new Genesis Google Assistant seems to be one of those things. 

I mean, the features this service offers are pretty cool and can become handy in a number of situations. The video below tries to portray a couple of occasions where Genesis Google Assistant can make life a lot easier. The system utilizes Genesis app for the Google Assistant to remote start, lock or send a destination to their car via voice commands on Google Home, eligible Android phones or iPhones.

So you have a number of ways to communicate with your Genesis Google Assistant: Voice commands via the Assistant on Google Home, Voice commands via the Google Assistant on eligible Android phones or iPhones, and Text commands via the Google Assistant on a smartphone. You are going to need a PIN number to make the assistant run your orders, and you better keep it protected because your car can get hacked with it. The Genesis Connected Services available through this service include: Sending a destination to the car’s navigation system, Remote Start with Climate Control, Remote Lock & Unlock, Remote horn/lights.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis Virtual Guide Is an Augmented Reality User Manual

Genesis Virtual Guide

Being the luxury sub-brand of Hyundai, Genesis is constantly on the lookout to improve their game and make their cars comparable to the European rivals. This time they have found an area improvement that doesn’t really have anything to do with the actual car. Genesis Virtual Guide is really a fancy user manual that is only harder to figure out than a traditional one if you are older than thirteen. 

But hey, it’s something they can flaunt in the face of the competition and maybe even impress a few customers enough to consider the Genesis G80 as their next luxury sedan over the established Merc or Bimmer. Genesis Virtual Guide makes use of augmented reality technology so any part of the car you know nothing about or can’t figure out how to operate you just point your smartphone camera on it and the app, recognizing the bit you are seeking information on, loads up the appropriate part of the user manual. And best of all, it’s interactive and has movies and stuff so you won’t even have to read text.

Genesis Virtual Guide app contains a number of informational guides including: 135 how-to videos and 25 3-D overlay images that appear once users scan areas of their vehicle, like the engine bay. It’s a pretty smart thing, but the truth is most Genesis buyers are not anything like the young and tech savvy woman featured in this video, but men who have gone past their middle age and many of them have trouble dialing a number with a smartphone, let alone use augmented reality. Still, it’s a pretty good effort on Hyundai’s part and definitely a plus for Genesis cars in those comparison tests.

PostHeaderIcon Genesis’ Rush To Separate From Hyundai Has All The Makings Of A Hasty, Ill-Timed Decision

It’s never a good feeling when you wake up to news that immediately raises your eyebrows. But that’s exactly what happened earlier this morning when I clicked an alert on my phone about Genesis’ decision to separate from Hyundai long before it intended to. Apparently, the news is legitimate, too, because according to Automotive News, Hyundai’s two-year old luxury brand is all set to introduce a new retail strategy in the U.S. that will “accelerate” its separation from Hyundai, thus cutting down the number of Hyundai dealerships that are authorized to sell Genesis models.

The play at independence is surprising, not because Genesis wants to do it (there were already plans for it) but because the initial plan called for this separation to happen two or three years down the road. Instead, it could happen as early as next year even though the current dealership setup between the two brands is still itself a work-in-progress. Neither Hyundai nor Genesis have provided details on how Genesis plans to establish its own dealership network, but it is telling that Genesis’ decision may have some half-baked elements to it when its own general manager, Erwin Raphael, admits to Auto News that the company has to make “very difficult decisions in the short run in order to ensure that we take care of our… dealers in the long run.” However this story unfolds, it’s clear that this is not what Hyundai intended when it decided to launch a sub-brand that will provide its customers a distinct lineup of luxury vehicles in the mold of Lexus and Infiniti.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai i30 N TCR Customer Racing Car

ADAC GT Masters, 9. + 10. Lauf - Nürburgring 2017 - Foto: Gruppe C Photography

This past weekend during the ADAC TCR Germany Hyundai had brought along the new i30 N TCR, a customer race car, a new competition model from Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing division, which attracted a lot of attention. The race car is based on the i30 N hot hatch which is already being praised as hit. 

While details and specs of the Hyundai i30 N TCR are yet to be revealed, the race car will be pretty close to the road-going model both visually and in terms of mechanical underpinnings. Of course, the TCR version boasts a competition-grade aero kit, suspension, wheels and tires as well as upgraded engine. One of the purposes of this car, after all, is to give the i30 N some motorsport prestige and make it even more irresistible to the hot hatch buyers.

Hyundai i30 N TCR evne features a livery that is inspired by a production color featured on the road-going version. The Sky Blue, with highlights of Active Red and darker ‘Hyundai’ Blue, is a signature of high-performance models from the Korean car maker and is even used on their WRC models. The TCR is still being tested by Hyundai Motorpsort and BRC Racing, but it will be ready to be handed over to the customers and teams in early December.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Elantra GT

Hyundai introduced the Elantra for the 1991 model year, but at that time, even this now well-regarded model was considered a throw-away econobox at best. Hyundai has evolved as a brand a lot over the last 31 years, as has its long-running Elantra nameplate, which entered its sixth generation for the 2016 model year. As was the case with the previous-gen model, the new Elantra has been expected to spawn a GT model, and sure enough, Hyundai showed up to the 2017 Chicago Auto show with not one, but two variants in tow. Offered with either a 1.6-liter, turbocharged mill in Sport trim or a 2.0-liter NA mill in the entry-level trim, the GT can be had with either 201 horsepower or 162 horsepower, respectively. The new GT is now more rigid than before (by 22 percent,) sits lower, is wider, and shed a total of 62 pounds. Because of its hatchback nature, the GT can hold 25 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats in the upright position and more than double that the rear seats laid down.

What’s more important here is that the new Elantra GT will have its work cut out for it on the market. After all, the Elantra GT doesn’t exactly spring to mind when someone mentions hot hatches, despite the fact that it competes against some strong models like the Mazda3 and Ford Focus hatchback, among others. So, will the new Elantra GT have what it takes to drive folks into Hyundai dealers for the brand’s latest hatch? Well, things look promising but Keep reading to see what we think about it and to learn more about how it compares to the competition.

Update 08/03/2017: Hyundai has announced pricing for the 2018 Elantra GT. Prices start out at a relatively low $19,350 and increase to just over $24,000 for the range-topping model. Check out the details in the Prices section below.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai i30 N Creates Smashing First Impression As First Edition Models Sell Out In Two Days

If there were any concerns about Hyundai’s N performance division’s goal of conquering the ultra-competitive world of hot hatchbacks, those questions and concerns should be put to bed. Not only did Hyundai make a smashing first impression with the i30 N, it created a vacuum of demand and interest in the hot hatch that culminated with the first 100 First Edition models of the hot hatch selling out in Germany in a matter of two days.

Two days. That’s all it took for German customers to scoop up all 100 units of the i30 N First Edition models. It may not sound too impressive at first glance, but considering that the i30 N is a completely new model that’s looking to break ground in a market dominated by so many competitors, and the narrative surrounding the surprisingly hot-selling hot hatch starts to change. The truth is that while the i30 N has been developed to compete against the best of the best in its segment, there are no assurances that it would be successful from the get-go. That’s how competitive the hot hatch market is. Turns out, the i30 N is more than up to the challenge as shown by the demand for the 100 First Edition models. There’s no word yet on whether Hyundai Deutschland plans to add more First Edition models to accommodate this who missed out on it, but it is offering the same people the chance to have their names on a waiting list for the hot hatch in the event one of the 100 models becomes available.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai i30 N Fastback Render Looks Intriguing

Hyundai i30 N Fastback

While the hatchback Hyundai i30 N has captivated fans the world over with its cool blend of performance, practicality and value, its sister the Fastback is not getting as much attention as it deserve. Maybe they shouldn’t have unveiled them simultaneously. In any case, there is a solution to that and that is what you are looking at here, the Hyundai i30 N Fastback.

Yep, just give the Fastback the N treatment and it becomes just as cool as the other one. This car, of course, is just a speculative render of what a Hyundai i30 N Fastback might look like and it only shows the car from one side. But it is enough to convince us the whole thing is a good idea. I mean, what’s not to like about a sleeker, more practical i30 N? You get the sporty looks thanks to the unique aero kit and colors of the N treatment, and you get the style and class of the Fastback.

And most importantly you get the performance of the N car in an overall more desirable package. Yes, the hatchback is very nice and all that, but the thing is if you drive a hot hatchback you are sort of marking yourself as a certain type of individual, whereas a high-performance fastback could be driven by anybody. What’s more, the hatchback is not a car for every occasion, but you can take the Fastback to the best restaurants and the valet would still open the door for you.

Hyundai seems to have come up with an instant hit with the new i30 N hot hatch as the First Edition version of the car sells out completely after a couple of days of taking orders. Mind you, they are only making a 100 Hyundai i30 N First Edition and only in Germany, so…

So the achievement may not be all that impressive, but the car sure is. To be officially launched across Europe by the end of 2017, the Hyundai i30 N is the most sophisticated sporty model the Korean company has ever built and it has already made the big-time Euro boys sit up and take notice. The hot hatch comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine delivering up to 275 PS and 353 Nm torque, and sports unique high-performance design elements on the exterior and interior. Depending on the driving mood, drivers can choose from five different modes to change the character of the car by adjusting the parameters of the engine, the dampers, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Electronic Limited Slip Differential (E-LSD), engine sound, steering and Rev matching.

“The high interest in the First Edition confirms our confidence in the i30 N. Our first high-performance model under the N line up has been developed from the ground up to deliver pure driving pleasure in an accessible high-performance package for the road and for the track. It enriches the Hyundai brand with emotional appeal. People will experience a contented grin when driving this performance car.” Albert Biermann, Executive Vice President Performance Development and High Performance Vehicle Division at Hyundai Motor Company

The third-generation Hyundai i30 arrived in 2016 as a significant makeover of the previous model. Redesigned inside and out, the hatchback gained Hyundai’s latest design language, as well as a host of new features and tech that moved the i30 a bit closer to the premium market. As usual, the hatchback also received a longer, wagon version, but for the very first time since its introduction in 2007, it also got a higher performance variant developed by the company’s N division. Come 2017 and the i30 also gained its first-ever sedan version.

Dubbed i30 Fastback, it’s not a traditional four-door sedan, but it’s the closest thing to a three-box design to wear the “i30” badge. The Fastback rounds off the i30’s largest vehicle lineup in history and enables the nameplate to better compete with the sedan version of the Ford Focus, as well as extremely popular four-door compacts such as the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic. Find out how it compared to some of the world’s best-selling vehicles in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Elantra Sport – Driven

The Hyundai Elantra is completely new for 2017, including its chassis, suspension, powertrain, and interior. But Hyundai didn’t stop there. The Korean automaker added two distinctive trim levels atop the standard Elantra compact sedan. In fact, it might be more appropriate to consider them sub-models thanks to their deep changes and laser focus. They are the fuel-sipping Elantra Eco and this, the road-hugging Elantra Sport. I recently spent two weeks with the Elantra Sport, driving it around familiar roads along my daily commute and throwing it around corners on quiet country roads.

This isn’t my first foray into Hyundai’s newest Elantra. Actually, it’s my third, having driven both the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited and 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco soon after the car’s launch. These three cars couldn’t be more different despite being cut from the same cloth. As their titles suggest, each has its intended function, with the range-topping Limited trim being the swankiest and most plush, the Eco being the most frugal with fuel, and the Sport being, well, the most willing dance partner of the trio. The 2017 Elantra Sport is up against some stiff competition, found mostly in the Honda Civic Si and Nissan Sentra NISMO. But perhaps the Elantra Sport’s biggest rival will be its own recognition in this niche segment. The Civic Si rules with the weapon of a household name – something Hyundai will have to establish for its compact sports sedan. Thankfully, the Elantra Sport has all the right makings for success. Keep reading to see what I mean.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport: Highs & Lows

It’s hard to believe Hyundai has six generations of Elantra models on the road, yet, here we are. The latest model actually debuted for 2017, making it among the newest in the compact sedan segment. The sixth-generation also brings several distinct trim levels. These include the standard Elantra, the fuel-sipping Elantra Eco, and the road-hugging Elantra Sport.

The past two weeks have seen an Electric Blue Elantra Sport sitting in my driveway, so I’ve had plenty of time to develop a love/hate relationship. Fortunately, the balance sways far more to the love side of the equation. Hyundai has done a good job modifying the Elantra for spirited driving. In fact, the Elantra Sport gets an entirely different rear suspension over non-Sport models. Gone is the traditional torsion beam setup, swapped with an independent, multi-link system with stiffer coil springs and dampers. Oh, and the drivetrain is Sport-specific, too, with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 201 horsepower and backed by a six-speed manual or a dual clutch automatic. Hyundai then bolts on bodywork that’s more athletic and youthful. But not everything is rainbows and butterflies. Check out my list of Highs and Lows of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport.

Hyundai i30 Fastback-0

Along with the high-performance i30 N, Hyundai also revealed today a fancy four-door version of the i30 with a lot of curves in all the right places. The 2018 Hyundai i30 Fastback is the vehicle with which the company is taking this model to a higher market. 

The Hyundai i30 Fastback is clearly a head and shoulders above its hatchback brethren inside and out. The front-end is closer in styling to the much more expensive Sonata and Azera, while the rear-end does remind one of the Elantra, save, of course, for that lovely swooping tailgate which terminates in a cool spoiler. If you get this car just make sure you don’t ding it, because you may end up needing a whole new tailgate.

The teardrop shape of the body invariably affects the interior space for the rear passengers, but Hyundai i30 Fastback makes up for that with giving the front riders a col dashboard and plenty of kit to play with. The i30 Fastback offers customers an optional eight-inch touch screen of the new-generation navigation system including state-of-the-art connectivity features, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can even get wireless charging and five different audio systems.

Along with the high-performance i30 N, Hyundai also revealed today a fancy four-door version of the i30 with a lot of curves in all the right places. The 2018 Hyundai i30 Fastback is the vehicle with which the company is taking this model to a higher market. 

The Hyundai i30 Fastback is clearly a head and shoulders above its hatchback brethren inside and out. The front-end is closer in styling to the much more expensive Sonata and Azera, while the rear-end does remind one of the Elantra, save, of course, for that lovely swooping tailgate which terminates in a cool spoiler. If you get this car just make sure you don’t ding it, because you may end up needing a whole new tailgate.

The teardrop shape of the body invariably affects the interior space for the rear passengers, but Hyundai i30 Fastback makes up for that with giving the front riders a col dashboard and plenty of kit to play with. The i30 Fastback offers customers an optional eight-inch touch screen of the new-generation navigation system including state-of-the-art connectivity features, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can even get wireless charging and five different audio systems.

Engine-wise, you have the choice of 1.4 T-GDI turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 140 PS or the 1.0   T-GDI turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 120 PS. Later on there will be diesels with 110 and 136 PS available as well. The European made Fastback also comes with a host of advanced safety features, namely Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with cameras and sensors, Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Blind Spot Detector (BSD), Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC), Rear-Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and…

Finally, the first product of Hyundai’s new N sub-brand, the division created to make fun cars, comes out of hiding. It’s the 2018 Hyundai i30 N and it brings with it sharp and understated sporty looks, a cool and functional cabin, and 275 horsepower backed by a carefully engineered chassis. 

The Korean engineers who built the 2018 Hyundai i30 N maintain that their priority was not getting the best numbers out of this car, but rather making a hot hatch that could be used everyday and would set your pulse racing every time you drove it. To this end they started with the nice and practical i30 and gave it a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that delivers up to 275 PS and 353 Nm torque. The N is front-whee-drive, and it comes with a six-speed manual gearbox.

What makes Hyundai i30 N what its makers claim is not just the engine. They have pent a lot of time perfecting the aero kit with front and rear spoilers and carefully designed ducts. But the best part of the effort has been spent on the chassis. The goodness here begins with 18-inch Michelin or 19-inch Pirelli high-performance Hyundai N tyres and continues with a direct steering, Electronic Controlled Suspension (ECS), Electronic Limited Slip Differential (E-LSD), Launch Control and special Electronic Stability Program.

All of this makes the i30 N not just a good sports car on the street, but also a formidable weapon on the race track. This was put to the test at this year’s ADAC 24-hours race on the Nürburgring, a place the i30 N is intimately familiar with as it has spent 10,000 km going around it during development. Other highlights of Hyundai i30 N include rear spoiler with triangular brake light, dual muffler exhaust, comfy sports seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless inductive charging pad for mobile phones and the latest safety features.
