Hyundai Models Review
Investors founded the Hyundai Motor Company on 29 December 1967. The company's headquarters is in Seoul, South Korea, and it is a multinational corporation. Kia Motors is the other company that makes up the Hyundai Motor Group. As of the close of sales in 2012, the Hyundai Motor Group had the fifth highest amount of sales in the world. Their design philosophy is fluidic sculpture, which means that buyers should expect fluid designs and streamlined features, especially in models to come.
Hyundai Motor Company manufactures an impressive lineup of compact vehicles. These models include the Accent, Elantra, Elantra Coupe, Elantra GT and the Veloster. The Sedan and hybrid line of automobiles sold through Hyundai include the Sonata, Azera and the 2015 Sonata Hybrid. The Sonata Hybrid offers and impressive 8,8 L/100 km rating and comes with a lifetime hybrid battery warranty. This model also comes equipped with a 7-inch touch navigation system for easier operations for both driver and passengers.
The latest line of crossover vehicles offered by Hyundai includes the ever popular Tucson model and the Santa Fe model. The 2008 Santa Fe was a top pick in the US magazine, Consumer Reports, which reviews everything from cars to appliances. The magazine compared the top 10 SUVs and decided based on features, price and safety that the Santa Fe was the best. When it comes to performance vehicles; the Hyundai team continues to impress. Their line of performance vehicle is the Genesis, Genesis Coupe, and the Equus models.
Hyundai vehicles have been awarded seven top safety picks on all of their new 2015 models. Hyundai vehicles have top safety ratings in terms of crashes and airbag reliability. Even their hybrid offering received the NHTSA 5-star overall safety rating. Their vehicles have above and beyond the recommended safety equipment, and their dedication to keeping their customers safe, wins them repeat business year after year. In fact, in 2011, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded Hyundai six Top Safety Picks.
When it comes to vehicles, consumers have many options. It can be difficult to find a car within your budget that has all the features you want plus low mileage. Getting a new or used Hyundai sedan is a different story. Korean automaker Hyundai strikes a rare balance of affordability, style, performance and reliability in its line of sedans offered internationally. In South Africa, Hyundai sedans include the Accent, Elantra and Sonata.
Hyundai Sedan Safety
The Hyundai Accent is the most basic car in Hyundai's fleet of sedans. It is recognised for its reliability and low maintenance costs, but it is not so strong in safety rating. The first two generations of the Hyundai Accent delivered below-average results in safety crash tests. The third and fourth-generation models come with front and side airbags, which makes them a little safer, but even so, the Accent only passes marginally on standard safety tests for frontal collisions, side impacts and rollovers. The story with the Hyundai Elantra, which is Hyundai's second-level sedan, is similar. Hyundai produces the Elantra in four generations. The first two generations have only front airbags, while the third and fourth-generation editions have front airbags as well as side airbags for all passengers. Despite these features, the Elantra squeaks by in safety tests, managing ratings of acceptable rather than good. Of all the sedans that Hyundai offers, the Sonata is the best bet for safety, provided consumers select the later models. The Sonata comes in five generations, with production dating back to the 1980s. The first three generations offer bare-bones safety features, which include only airbags for the driver and front passenger. The fifth generation Sonata has front and side airbags for all occupants, and received ratings of ?good? (the highest level) by the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for front and side impacts, but only ?marginal? for rollovers. Hyundai paid more attention to safety with the sixth generation model: this Sonata aced all U.S. NHTSA crash tests.
Hyundai Sedan Body Styles
The family of sedans offered by Hyundai feature an identical generic sedan body style, which is that of a four-door cabin that rests on a low rectangular platform. All sedans seat five passengers: two in the front row and three in the back. They all include a rear boot as well, which opens with a separate fifth door. Among the vehicles and across generations the size of the passenger cabins and boots are different. The Accent has the narrowest cabin and offers less room for passengers than the higher-end models. What it lacks in size, however, the Accent makes up for in fuel efficiency and reliability. This makes it a popular choice amongst commuters and people with small families who do not need extra room. The Elantra is a bit larger than the Accent and has a longer body, which includes a longer front bonnet and roomier cabin. It is available with several choices of engines, including 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre engines on the standard versions and a 1.6-litre turbo-charged engine on the higher-end versions. The combination of a larger cabin and solid performance record make the Elantra a top choice for people with small families and for those who enjoy going on vacations and need a bit more storage room for luggage and gear. The Sonata is the most luxurious in Hyundai's sedan lineup, and. not surprisingly, it has the largest cabin. Although it seats five like the other vehicles, the Sonata gives passengers room to move their elbows. It also has more space between the two rows of seats, which gives backseat passengers a bit more legroom.
Reliability of Hyundai Sedans
While they have room for improvement in the safety department, the family of Hyundai sedans with petrol and diesel engines consistently rank near the top for reliability among competitor cars in the global class of compact sedans. The different models come with various engine options; most start with a 1.6-litre engine in the base version and may have up to 2.0-litre engines in the highest trim editions. Regardless of power output, the engines in Hyundai's sedans are praised for their longevity and require little maintenance beyond standard oil changes and check-ups. While the diesel and standard petrol cars in the Hyundai sedan family are good bets for reliability, the sixth-generation Hyundai Sonata hybrid needs a bit of attention. This car operates on a lithium battery as well as petrol. The dual energy combination makes the Sonata hybrid more fuel-efficient, but it also makes it susceptible to problems involving the engine.
Hyundai Sedan Transmissions
As with many manufacturers, Hyundai produces its sedans with different transmission systems to suit the needs of drivers around the world. The first two generations of the Accent and Elantra have four-speed automatic transmissions and five-speed manual transmissions. The sixth-generation Elantra comes with a six-speed option in manual and automatic, while the third generation of the Accent comes in five-speed and six-speed versions of both. The earliest Sonata has four-speed, five-speed and six-speed transmissions, while later generations offer six speeds in manual and automatic styles.
For those who want an affordable, reliable car that delivers a solid performance and requires minimal maintenance, the fleet of Hyundai sedans are worth a look. Consumers can search for a new or used Hyundai sedan on Gumtree ZA in several styles, including the Accent, Elantra and Sonata. The Accent is the smallest of the lot, while the Sonata is the most luxurious and spacious.
Selecting a Hyundai SUV
Selecting a Hyundai SUV
For consumers in South Africa who like to get in their cars and take off on adventures and couples with children, a new or used Hyundai Standard Utility Vehicle is a good bet. The Korean automaker Hyundai has a reputation for producing affordable, reliable automobiles, and its SUVs are worth checking out. Hyundai offers South Africans two SUVs: the Hyundai ix35, also marketed as the Hyundai Tucson, and the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Tucson is the smaller and most basic of the two models, while the Santa Fe offers a roomier cabin, longer body and more features.
Safety in a Hyundai SUV
In a refreshing departure from the past, Hyundai took safety into serious consideration with the introduction of its SUVs, and the results showed. When it introduced the Tucson in 2004, Hyundai unveiled one of the most reliable, affordable and safest cars to consumers around the world. Hyundai's previous strengths were in the areas of reliability and affordability, but their cars had room for improvement in the safety arena. That changed with the humble Hyundai Tucson. This SUV has a simple design and appearance: in the area of aesthetics, it blends in with the crowd. But what it lacks in beauty, this crossover SUV makes up for in safety. It contains four airbags in the front ? two front-mounted airbags and two on the sides for the driver and passenger ? and side airbags for passengers in the backseat. When put through the rigorous safety test of the U.S. National Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, the Tucson passed with flying colours. This SUV received five-star crash test ratings (the highest possible ranking in NHSTA tests) for front and side impacts. Similarly, the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is the larger and more luxurious of the two SUVs, brought surprisingly good results when put through safety tests. All editions received five-star crash test ratings from the NHTSA, and the second-generation edition was distinguished as a top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The impressive safety records of these vehicles make them quite popular amongst families with small children, as parents want to make sure their kids are as safe as can be on the road. Their safety records and spacious interiors have earned the two Hyundai SUVs the nickname ?mom taxi,? as they are one of the most popular cars amongst female car owners with kids.
Hyundai SUV Powertrain
Although the basic shapes and layouts of its two SUVs remained virtually identical over the years, Hyundai offers the Tucson and Santa Fe with several different engines and transmissions. In keeping with tradition, the vehicles offered by Hyundai perform exceptionally well in reliability tests, regardless of engine size and transmission style. The first-generation Tucson, produced from 2004 through 2009, comes in options for petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engines in this car include a 2.0 and 2.7 V6 engine; the 2.0 is smaller and a bit less powerful, but it gets better gas mileage. The larger 2.7 engine, on the other hand, gives the Tucson faster acceleration and makes for a sportier ride. Hyundai also makes the Tucson with a diesel engine, which comes in a standard size of 2.0. Tucsons made after 2006 are available with turbo-charged engines, which makes them faster and more powerful than the base versions. The petrol and diesel versions come in five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions, while the turbo-charged engines offer four-speed, five-speed and six-speed manual and automatic transmissions with shiftronic capabilities. The Hyundai Santa Fe comes in a base edition with the 2.0-litre engine, available in a diesel or petrol version. Variations include a 2.4-litre, 2.7-litre and 3.5-litre engine. As with the Tucson, Hyundai offers the Santa Fe with a four-speed, five-speed and six-speed manual transmission style and includes a six-speed automatic version as well.
Features and Variations on Hyundai SUVs
Hyundai made several amendments to the Tucson and Santa Fe over the course of these cars' production spans. Most changes were aesthetic; both the Tucson and Santa Fe received facelifts, and in later years, they were made available in more colours. The Tucson received few external changes over the years, as shoppers reported being satisfied with its appearance. In 2006, Hyundai revamped the sound system in the Tucson to a high-performance stereo to enhance drivers' experiences while running errands, commuting to work and going on vacations. Hyundai gave the Santa Fe its last facelift in 2005, when it gave the SUV a slimmer front grill, sleeker taillights and a smaller rear bumper. Hyundai also included longer sun visors for the driver and passenger to reduce glare. As with most manufacturers, Hyundai offers several versions to consumers in both SUVs. The base model Tucson comes with a series of standard features such as air conditioning, airbags, a CD player, alloy wheels and cloth seats. The mid-range SE and premium SE edition add on more features, including heated seats and more colour options. Likewise, the Santa Fe comes with similar standard features, and higher-end versions have heated seats, heated windshields and offer more colour choices.
With the release of the Tucson and Santa Fe, Hyundai captured all the qualities that consumers typically desire when looking for family-friendly cars. These SUVs seat five passengers and have wide, spacious boots. They are as reliable as Hyundai vehicles from the past, but they offer much more in the way of safety and driving excitement than Hyundai's other passenger vehicles.
