2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD Hybrid l Review

2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD Hybrid

It’s pretty much fact that Hyundai and it’s various brands are absolutely slaying right now. I saw a Twitter reply that said “It’s kind of crazy how Hyundai releases more killer, cutting-edge designs in a week than some automakers do in a year.” That resonated with me, because yeah, that’s exactly what’s happening. And it’s […]

2021 Hyundai Venue Denim Edition l Review

Howdy hoons, it’s me again, back with some more crossover review hotness. After a palate cleansing go in a 2005 Alfa Romeo 147 GTA, I’ve decided to just own it, the car-based SUV is likely here to stay after all. At least this week’s ride was a fun looking little crossover, the Hyundai Venue. It’s […]

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Calligraphy l Review

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Calligraphy

Hey guys, it’s me again, back with another crossover review! This time it’s the latest Hyundai Santa Fe and it’s tippy top trim level, the Calligraphy. If you can imagine, 2021 marks the Santa Fe’s twentieth birthday! Twenty years of the midsize (formerly compact) crossover has come to our shores across four generations, the latest […]

Shopping for an atomic toaster – 2017 Hyundai Ioniq EV

At this moment, the electrified car I find the most suitable for my commute and budget is the Hyundai Ioniq Electric. It is about as far from enthusiast cars as the Prius and the second generation Honda Insight are, and it also shares its side profile with those cars. It’s absolutely, completely forgettable, but luckily that is by design.

2021 Hyundai Veloster N l Review

2021 Hyundai Veloster N

It’s funny, I just of waxed poetic about the Hyundai Veloster Turbo not too long ago. With the big “long live the hot hatch” tagline attached, I noted that it delivered a “best-of-both-worlds mix of spirited performance and day-to-day comfort” but also pointed out that the “biggest issue with the Veloster Turbo Ultimate for the […]

2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited: New Class Standard?

2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited

About a decade ago one of my podcast co-hosts, the infamous Roundabout Show’s own Craig Cole (now with Roadshow), and I attended a local ride and drive of a previous generation Hyundai Tucson.  He kept referring to it as the “Tuckson”.  And damn you, Craig Cole, that has stuck in my brain so hard I have […]

2021 Hyundai Veloster N: Yup, it’s still great!

Hyundai added the option of an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission to the Veloster N. Does that sap the joy? Nope! In fact, it opens up the appeal of the car to a wider audience. Here in the States, the 2021 Hyundai Veloster N is *the* hot hatch to buy, no doubt about it. [Disclaimer: Hyundai tossed […]

2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited – Hyundai is killing it!

2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited

Seriously, the title of this article couldn’t be more true. I say this with no specific preference or bias regarding the Korean automaker. It’s just that this ongoing car-review-story that I’ve been telling has a hero emerging, and its name is the Hyundai Motor Company. Between their various badges, Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis, they are […]

2020 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line: Half Measures

Preamble When a five-door hatchback like the Elantra GT, rolling on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires and with a manual transmission is dropped off for you, you have expectations.  More so, given that Hyundai, for more than a decade, tends to deliver a lot of value for the money. To that value point, this is […]

2020 Hyundai Veloster Turbo – Long live the hot hatch

2020 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

It’s not hard to get nostalgic for the hot hatchback, they deliver a great mix of performance and practicality. Many of your favorite automotive TV presenter-types have pined for an original Mk1 GTI over the latest supercar while on camera. I like to try and tell a running story during these reviews, and my history […]
