Prior to its official introduction at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month, Hyundai teased the rear of their new electric vehicle concept, complete with a nice big band of animated dot-matrix taillight goodness. The car is called 『45』 and it seems like those two bracket things are part of the concept car’s official...

Why Pick A 2019 Hyundai Veloster N Over A Civic Type R, GTI or Mini Cooper S?

Why Pick A 2019 Hyundai Veloster N Over A Civic Type R, GTI or Mini Cooper S?
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

It’s an interesting era for high-performance hatchbacks. The Ford Fiesta ST, Focus ST and Focus RS have abandoned us . We have to wait a while for the next Volkswagen GTI and Golf R to drop. Small car sales are down across the board. But the remaining competitors are stronger than ever and the newest player in the mix, the 2019...

Hyundai Replaces Silver, White And Gray Paint With Silver, White And Gray Paint On The 2020 Tuscon

Hyundai Replaces Silver, White And Gray Paint With Silver, White And Gray Paint On The 2020 Tuscon

Hyundai Motor America would like everyone to know, via a press release this week, that like an artist changing out their paints for a new, ambitious project, the Hyundai Tuscon will feature a “refreshed color palette” for the 2020 model year. That color palette will replace white, silver and gray with different shades of white, silver and gray.

Truly, Hyundai is an artist ahead of its time

Is The Hyundai Nexo Available In Rose Gold? A Jalopnik Investigation

Is The Hyundai Nexo Available In Rose Gold? A Jalopnik Investigation

Look, I’m not saying rose gold will mark the final evolution in jewelry fashion, or fashion in general. I’m not saying kids won’t easily be able to tell my age or preferred era of style upon seeing my rose gold wedding ring in 30 years, like I do now with rectangularly cut diamonds encased in thick walls of yellow gold. I’m not saying rose gold is forever. But rose gold is now, and it appears...

Let's Be Realistic About The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid's Solar Roof

Let's Be Realistic About The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid's Solar Roof

Yesterday Hyundai released a version of their Sonata Hybrid car that includes a solar panel integrated into the roof, and along with it came a lot of exciting claims, like how it can recharge up to 60 percent of the car’s battery, and how it can provide enough power over the course of a year to let the car travel over 800 miles. It all sounds great, but, unsurprisingly, in reality it’s likely...

The New 2020 Hyundai i10 Teaser Hints At One Hell Of A Badass Little Car

The New 2020 Hyundai i10 Teaser Hints At One Hell Of A Badass Little Car

The Hyundai i10 has never been a particularly aggressive looking vehicle—in fact, it’s about as inoffensive as you can get—but it looks like things are about to change. The newest teaser for the 2020 i10 city car makes it out to look... actually pretty fucking cool.

This teaser has been released ahead of the car’s official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and I am in love. As...

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Has a Solar Roof

The sleek and sensuous 2020 Hyundai Sonata will have a hybrid version, which is better for the planet and your guilt. Hyundai seems like it wants to experiment with some new tech with it, too. This hybrid will come fitted a solar roof system. Now, where have I heard that one before ?

The Claim That The Karma Revero's Solar Roof Will 'Power The Car' Is Such Bullshit

Last week, we covered the...

Should I Feel Guilty for Test Driving a Car That I Have No Intention of Buying?

Should I Feel Guilty for Test Driving a Car That I Have No Intention of Buying?

As Jalopnik’s resident car buying expert and professional car shopper, I get emails. Lots of emails. I’ve decided to pick a few questions and try to help out. This week we are discussing free gifts with test drives, dual-clutch transmission worries, and how much of a hit you would take if you bought and sold a high-demand car.

First up is it wrong to test drive a car just to get the free gift...

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade Is Kind of Astoundingly Luxurious

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade Is Kind of Astoundingly Luxurious
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade isn’t the bargain-basement large-medium three-row SUV I was expecting. Well, it is an eight-seat sport utility and it’s definitely not small. But it’s also really nice. The top-spec Limited version, actually, is almost shockingly luxurious. Hyundai is not messing around here.

Hyundai Isn't Giving up on Sedans and Neither Am I

This weekend during the Nurburgring 24, I was afforded some time to speak with the local German car company Hyundai and two of its executives, Albert Biermann, Head of R&D for Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis, and Thomas Schemera, Head of Global Product Strategy & Design for Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis. Both of these gentlemen are former BMW execs who made the transition to the Korean brands, and...

The Humongous Hyundai Palisade Starts at $31,550

The Humongous Hyundai Palisade Starts at $31,550

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is the automaker’s largest son ever. It has three rows of seats and comes in either all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. And now we also have word on pricing.

I’ve copied Hyundai’s own chart below, but the cheapest Palisade—the SE trim that has FWD—starts at $31,550. The most expensive Limited trim with AWD starts at $46,400.

All of these prices exclude the $1,045...

Hyundai Might Be Aiming For Another New Model To Top All Models

Hyundai Might Be Aiming For Another New Model To Top All Models

I saw the Hyundai G Concept in the flesh last night, and for something that’s essentially supposed to be the next Hyundai Genesis it was, well, big. I don’t mean “oh this is big,” like in the industry sense, I mean BIG. Imposing. Large. But Hyundai is considering something even huger.

Yeah, huger. Is it a word? NOT IMPORTANT. What is important is that things might be about to get interesting...

Hyundai Twists Knife, Drops Manual on Elantra and Hikes Price $2,000

No matter which month, year or state of ruin the world is in, a few things have always seemed constant: at least one cat begging for food in the early hours of the morning, seasonal allergies and Hyundai offering a manual Elantra in America. Not to shake your faith in reality, but that last one is no more, as Hyundai’s dropping the manual for 2020 and hiking the base price by nearly...

Once, Hyundai Was Bonkers

Once, Hyundai Was Bonkers

Long before Hyundai spun off their Genesis premium brand in 2015, they had long dreamed of making luxurious vehicles. I’m not even talking about the Hyundai Genesis models from 2003 or so and on, nor the Equus from 1999. I’m talking about a car from an era when Hyundai was a bit wilder, a bit crazier, a bit more, um, exuberant. I’m talking about 1997's Hyundai SLV concept car, arguably the...

I Demand That Subtle Color Be the Paint Trend of the Near Future

I Demand That Subtle Color Be the Paint Trend of the Near Future

Automakers just don’t have enough fun when it comes to outfitting their cars with good-looking colors. When I prowled the show floor of the New York International Auto Show, I was not impressed by a vast majority of car colors—everything is either eye-searingly bright or a horrible, boring rental-car shade of gray, and we’re just completely ignoring the artfully colored middle ground....
