Dubbed the Palisade, for now, this eight-seater SUV will sit above the upcoming Sante Fe XL to boost the automaker’s lineup that’s filled with all sizes of SUVs. Despite being caught heavily camouflaged, the Palisade couldn’t hide its design cues, and here’s everything we know about this new South Korean beast.

What is what you pay for a basic 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe in Britain, where it is only available with a 2.2 CRDi diesel engine.

As we reported a few days ago, the new Hyundai Kona Electric is hitting the UK market with a base price of around 30 grand. If that is a bit too rich for you though, There is also the Hyundai Kona Diesel, a frugal version of the crossover which at £19,750 sounds like a better way of steering clear of petrol. 

The 2019 Hyundai Kona Diesel is known as the 1.6 CRDi, referring to the engine that is available in two power outputs: the 115PS 6 speed manual 2WD or 136PS 7 speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) 2WD. So this is not a gutsy engine, but it is clean, thanks to exhaust gas purification system using AdBlue selective catalyst reduction (SCR) alongside lean NOx (LNT) and existing diesel particulate filter (DPF). THe Kona diesel emits no more than 111 g/km of those nasty CO2.

As with the other variants of the car, the Hyundai Kona Diesel is well equipped, even in the base trim. Standard kit includes DAB, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 17” alloy wheels, body coloured bumpers, door handles and wing mirrors, as well as rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Kona Electric Priced from £29,495 in the UK

With the new 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric the Korean car maker has truly kicked its electrification efforts into high gear. The cool thing about the Kona EV is that it looks, goes, and is even marketed like a any other Hyundai, which means it is just as convenient and nice to live with. Mind you, it hasn’t been priced like a Hyundai. 

Yes, the big price tag is probably the only drawback of this fine electric car. Hyundai Kona Electric will be available to order from the 2 August with a base price of £29,495. It is expensive, but then the Kona EV is a feature-rich product. It is also an excellent electric car, with a 300-mile range, 135 or 204 PS output, and really cool and modern looks.

Hyundai Kona Electric is also very well-equipped. The standard kit includes 7” display audio including DAB, Apple Car Play and Android Auto™, rear parking sensors with rear view camera, Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls and a leather steering wheel. Automatic lights, climate control, driver’s side electric lumbar support and keyless entry with start/stop button. And that is not counting the safety features, which include Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition (AEB), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with individual tyre pressure display.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Hyundai i20 from £13,995 in Britain

There used to be a time when a small Hyundai hatchback was the farthest thing from premium. But things have changed and today the new 2019 Hyundai i20 is indeed one of the most premium choices in its segment, and it is priced accordingly. This tiny little thing starts from £13,995 and can be specced up to £18,645. 

For all the progress it has made, 2019 Hyundai i20 is still not a very desirable car. It’s a good car, period. It looks decent, built well, and comes with a lot of up to date features. And that’s frankly, what most people want out of a super mini. The standard kit on this car includes a 7” display audio with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear view camera, Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls and automatic headlamps. And all models, except for the basic S version, also get standard safety equipment such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Alert and High Beam Assist.

The choice of engines available for the 2019 i20 in the UK market include a 1.2 75PS unit with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and a 1.0 T-GDi 100PS which can be paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT. The 5-door hatchback comes with a bunch of fun and vibrant colors including Tomato Red and Champion Blue, and if you spec it right you can get some high-end features such as smart key with push button engine start/stop, panoramic sunroof, heated front seats and steering wheel. Below is the price list for the 2019 Hyundai i20 in UK along with the specs for each trim:

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Hyundai Veloster

When Hyundai debuted the 2019 Hyundai Veloster at the Detroit Auto Show jaws hit the floor, stars glowed a little brighter, and robes in hotels all around Detroit opened for high-level Hyundai execs. Okay, that’s a little extreme, but it was pretty jaw-dropping, and it grabbed a ton of attention. The Veloster was back, and it came back with a vengeance, sporting a whole new look, more powerful drivetrains (including an N-tuned model,) and a pretty nice interior for a car coming from a company that was once known for economy cars. This time around, the Veloster is here to serve as a very strong proposition in the hot-hatch market, aiming to put cars like the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Fiesta to shame. Power output comes from a 2.0-liter that’s good for 147 ponies or a turbocharged, 1.6-liter mill that’s good for 201 horsepower. And, now that we’ve had a chance to look back on it, we thought it was a good idea to pay it a little tribute and make it our wallpaper of the day. Check out our hand-picked favorite below.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai and Audi Partner Up for Fuel Cell Development

If you were still in doubt as to whether Hyundai has made it as a big, respected, international car maker, this new ought to convince you once and for all. The Korean company has teamed up with a German giant, Audi, for the development of fuel cell electric vehicles components and technologies. 

Audi has toyed with the idea of FCEV for a bit, but they have never seemed terribly serious about it. They are more fond of their electric e-tron projects. But on the off-chance this whole fuel cell thing might get somewhere, they have accepted Hyundai’s hand of friendship. The Koreans have been actively developing fuel cell cars for the past decade, and though their efforts have borne little fruit as far as a proper production car is concerned, they have made a lot of headway and gained lots of valuable experience.

The cross-license agreement between Hyundai and Audi also covers their affiliates, such as Kia and VW, meaning they will equally share the patent licenses for every new technology developed, meaning said technology could be used in cars belonging to those brands as well. Audi is particularly keen to gain access to Hyundai’s FCEV parts supply chain and leverage it to implement a network for future production models.

“This agreement is another example of Hyundai’s strong commitment to creating a more sustainable future whilst enhancing consumers’ lives with hydrogen-powered vehicles, the fastest way to a truly zero-emission world. We are confident that the Hyundai Motor Group-Audi partnership will successfully demonstrate the vision and benefits of FCEVs to the global society.” Euisun ChungVice Chairman at Hyundai Motor Company

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Santa Fe – Driven

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is a perfectly suitable choice in the compact crossover segment. But with an all-new, redesigned Santa Fe coming for the 2019 model year, how competitive is the outgoing model?

PostHeaderIcon New Hyundai Tuscon Gets 48 V Mild Hybrid Powerrain

The European customers of the new 2018 Hyundai Tucson facelift can now order this affordable SUV with an efficient mild hybrid diesel powertrain. The system consists of a 2.0 liter and a 48-volt battery that assists the combustion unit and makes its operation more economical. 

To be more precise and technical, the mild hybrid system in the new Hyundai Tucson features a 0.44 kW/h 48-volt lithium-ion battery, a Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG), a LDC converter (Low Voltage DC/DC) and an inverter. The system switches automatically between mechanical use of the engine and energy recuperation to achieve the best compromise between performance and fuel saving. With a total output of 186 horsepower, this four-wheel-drive version of the Tucson is quite possibly the most capable edition of the car released to date.

You can have your mild hybrid Hyundai Tucson with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an 8-speed automatic. The former is more efficient, cutting fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 7 percent compared to normal powertrians, but the latter is more convenient. But even if this system is still not eco-minded enough for you, next year Hyundai will release a mild hybrid version of the new Smart Stream 1.6-litre diesel engine.




“With our new mild hybrid powertrain system for our best-selling model, we are further expanding the company’s electrification strategy to make clean technologies accessible for even more customers,” says Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe. “It will be available in combination with more engines in the future, as part of our highly diverse mix of electrified solutions.”

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai N Boss Keeps Throwing Shade At BMW, Now Accuses Bimmer As Being Too M Happy

Hyundai N boss Albert Biermann knows what it takes to build a range of performance cars. He did for years as the main man over at BMW’s M Division. But now that he’s switched from the M to the N, Biermann has taken great lengths to criticize his former employer every chance he gets. This time, Biermann didn’t mince his words, saying that BMW has resorted to slapping the M badge on every model it sees. Shots fired, again.

First revealed in 2011 at the Barcelona Motor Show for the 2012 model year, the i40 is Hyundai’s line of large family cars, offered in a number of body styles across multiple worldwide markets.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Hyundai Sonata+ Editions Are Value-Packed

The Hyundai Sonata is getting more facelifts, and more frequently, as a reality TV star. The latest upgrade is the addition of of the  2018 Hyundai Sonata+ Editions to the range which brings subtle new visual tweaks and extra equipment that make these model the most value-packed ever. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata+ is a mid-model year enhancement with the main highlights of which include sport front fascia, mesh grille and interior amenities, plus the availability of panoramic sunroof and Advanced Driver Assist Systems. The + range starts with  SEL+ and Sport+, which also get dual automatic temperature control, Qi wireless phone charging, heated steering wheels and auto windows. The Sport+ with Tech Package ($25,400) add to the list Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, Smart Cruise Control with start/stop, and Electronic Parking Brake with auto vehicle hold.

There is also a $26,433 Sonata Limited with Ultimate Package+  with sport mesh grille and front fascia and panoramic sunroof. But the 2018 Hyundai Sonata+ Limited with Tech Package ($27,400) is the one with the goodies you want, and it represents a saving of a thousand bucks compared to when you spec up a non+ model yourself. The features include Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, Smart Cruise Control with start/stop, Electronic Parking Brake with auto vehicle hold, Sport mesh grille and front fascia, Qi wireless phone charging, and Heated steering wheel.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid – Specs and Features

The unique and interesting Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid enjoyed a successful first year in the U.S. market, and now the company has given it a bunch of updates for the 2019 modelyear to ensure that success will continue. These upgrades have mainly to do with improved safety and enhanced convenience. 

And that’s how it should be. You didn’t expect Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid to get a facelift after just one year, did you? No, that will probably come next year. For 2019 the Ioniq will have to do with enhanced features, such as available Driver Attention Alert and High Beam Assist, a sophisticated server-based, natural-language voice recognition assistant, and standard remote charge management for Plug-in and Electric models via Blue Link. Meanwhile, the SEL trim gets standard Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist and Smart Cruise Control.



As before, the party trick of Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid remains the powertrain, which can be had in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric guises. The Hybrid Blue is a 58 mpg 139 horsepower unit, the plug-in hybrid a 160 horsepower unit that promises 29 miles of electric driving as well as 119 MPGe in EV mode and 52 MPG in hybrid mode, and finally the Ioniq Electric offers 118 horsepower, a range of 124 miles, and 136 MPGe rating. The latter has a single-speed reduction-gear transmission, while the hybrid versions use a a six-speed EcoShift dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

There are subtle visual differences between the various versions of the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid, but you’ll probably only notice them with the Electric model which has unique fascia and light design. The Ioniq is also an environmentally conscious car inside the cabin, where it makes extensive use of recycled material. There is an efficient operation mode for the air con that minimizes waste and of course there is a top-notch infotainment with the latest connectivity features.

The Hyundai i30 N Fastback was spotted in prototype form being put through the paces. It will be the second model to be worked over by Hyundai’s new N division (the i30 N Hatchback was the first) and will even feature the same engine and design cues. It will be much sportier than the standard fastback and should offer as much as 275 horsepower, all of which will be channeled through a six-speed manual transmission.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Engineers Are Working Hard to Get a Green Light for the Kona N

The idea of a Kona N has been bouncing around, well, pretty much since the N sub-brand was announced. The shot callers over at Hyundai have yet to give the official green light, but Albert Biermann – the head of the N sub-brand – has given his people the okay to start working on a test mule. He hopes that a well-built test mule will give the head honchos something to believe in and ultimately get their okay to proceed with a real build.

“I’ve told them [the engineers] to build the car, and we’ll see what happens with getting it approved,” said Biermann. “It has to be the i30 N powertrain, really. Of course, we can give Kona different specifications on suspension and steering, although there are some common components we can use in that area as well, because it’ll be front-wheel drive, like the i30 N. But we already know that it has to be that car’s engine and gearbox for the Kona N, yes.”

With that in mind, The Kona N will probably be powered by the 247-horsepower version of the 2.0-liter from the i30 N. Sure, Hyundai could go with the 2.0-liter that’s tuned to 271 horsepower for the i30 N Performance Pack, but it isn’t likely – at least not at first. There’s no ruling out a hotter Performance Pack for the Kona N as well which would unlock that extra horsepower. There’s no word as to whether or not it’ll get that electric front differential from the i30N, but it’s not exactly out of the question either.

For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens, but you can probably expect the Kona N to show up before the Veloster N or the i30 N Fastback. For what it’s worth, the i30N should have a refined suspension, refined steering, and transmission, so that’s what you should expect from the Kona N as well.

They have declared this luxury sedan utterly safe, giving it the highest possible safety rating.

It doesn’t really come as a surprise, given that Genesis G80 Sport is a quality product competing at the top end of the market. Nevertheless, the results have been pretty impressive as the sedan aced all tests, including front driver-side and passenger-side protection, side barrier and pole impact, and rollover mitigation. The G80 has a clever structural design to thank for that performance, along with a long list of safety features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Alert, and  Dynamic Bending Light with High Beam Assist.

Despite all the goodness that is packaged into the 2018 Genesis G80 Sport, a lot of luxury buyers are still skeptical about it. Everybody knows that in terms of features and equipment the G80 can go toe to toe with its German rivals. But those who buy this kind of cars also want to show off their high-end car, and if we’re honest the Genesis brand is still not up there with the best of them. There is still a strong whiff of Hyundai about it. Not that that’s a bad thing, It’s just not as cool as the other available options in this segment. Then again, the G80 doesn’t cost anything like those other options.

The new and much improved 2019 Hyundai Veloster has received its official price tag ahead of its imminent release in the U.S. The sporty city car starts at $18,500 and goes up to $28,150. The range covers the standard, R-Spec, and Turbo models, with the super hot N version to be launched later.
