2012 Hyundai Genesis Sedan
Very nice car for the money, and more! Would have given 5 stars, but not fully satisfied with the throttle response... although this car is very powerful. There is no "sport mode" for throttle/transmission. I find that I have to dip my toe ...

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe
I just purchased a 2013 Santa Fe and love it. This is my fourth consecutive Hyundai purchase and see no reason to make a change. I have owned a GS 500, 2007 Azera (loved that car), 2012 Santa Fe and now the 2013 4 cylinder turbo sport. As with al...

2011 Hyundai Equus
Our new 2011 Equus was put to the test travelling close to 8,000 km from Vancouver down the west coast of Washington, Oregon, California, to Newport Beach (Balboa Island for a swim in the Pacific Ocean), then east to Palm Desert, up to Las Vegas, Hoo...

2010 Hyundai Accent
I've had my car since September of 2011 and I'm very happy with it. I was in a car accident back in august 2011 and was in need of a new car. We went to all of the OpenRoad dealership and found Hyundai had the best price, with people eager ...

Even niche cars like the unusually brilliant three-door Veloster have hit the ground running, but not quite as fast as the superbly executed Genesis Coupe. Now that I've spent time in this 2.0T version, albeit nicely fitted in Premium trim, I've enjoyed all three iterations of Hyundai's performance coupe. From the spine tingling performance of the 3.8-litre V6-powered GT to the equally engaging 2.0T R-Spec I'...

Photo: Trevor Hofmann, Canadian Auto Press its stylish Elantra. From the sporty two-door Elantra Coupe and the ultimately functional yet even sportier (with European i30 underpinnings) wagon-like five-door Elantra GT, to the bread and butter (albeit freshly baked hot and steamy garlic bread) Elantra Sedan it's a small car triumvirate unparalleled in the industry. Most rivals only offer one or maybe two body styles under the same nameplate, and despite concentrating all their energy one or two models few measure up to the Elantra. One glance and you'll know the Elantra is different....

The South Korean automaker has come so far in such a short amount of time that I'm almost left speechless. It's a good-looking car, but its styling isn't what has me enamoured. After all, except for a few bland models (the XG comes to mind) Hyundai has always had an element of style in its designs. Its first "luxury" sedan was penned by the great Giorgetto Giugiaro himself, and while it pulled much of its angular inspiration from his fabulous Maserati Quattroporte that came just prior, from all accounts living with the early '80s to early '90s machine was hardly a...

While it’s fun to dream about high-powered supercars or rock-crawling SUVs, most of us need a car that’s easier on the wallet just to get to work, haul around the family, go out with friends on weekends, and just live life. To that end there's a lot to be said for buying something brand new instead of another pre-owned problem. Mostly trouble-free driving backed by low- to no-cost warranted service is more than just a bonus; it's a luxury most used car buyers can only dream of, and that's what Hyundai has for you in its fuel-friendly yet fun-loving Accent. The 2013 ...

What makes a luxury model a luxury model? Why does a vehicle with a fancier badge demand a higher price than one from more humble roots despite offering similar levels of features and refinement? That's a question Hyundai wants you to ask yourself as you consider its new midsize Santa Fe, especially when taking in its new stretched seven-occupant XL version. This is one handsome SUV. From chrome-laden, LED-enhanced nose to beautifully detailed tail, the 100 mm longer wheelbase Santa Fe XL might just look even more appropriately proportioned than its smaller, lighter Santa Fe Sport sibl...

Photo: Simon Hill, Canadian Auto Press Car buyers these days want it all, and they want it at a price that doesn't cause buyer's remorse. At the bottom, middle and top of the "regular car" charts, the automobiles from Hyundai, in my humble opinion, line up as the best overall values in each car class. Consider the Accent, Elantra, Genesis and Equus. With base prices ranging from 16 to just under $70K, you are choosing from a wide range of size and feature options. Just line up the top-of-the-line Equus against the vaunt...
