Hyundai may have just given its Sonata a mid-cycle refresh for the 2018 model year, but that hasn’t stopped the automaker from thinking about what’s next for the family sedan. Spy photos show a heavily camouflaged Sonata sitting amongst its rivals – a Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Chevy Malibu. Even with sales dwindling, it doesn’t appear Hyundai is abandoning the car market just yet...

Hyundai stunned the 2018 Geneva Motor Show when it previewed its new "Sensuous Sportiness" design language in the form of the impossibly sleek HDC-1 Le Fil Rouge design study. Now it's providing a second peek into the future with the HDC-2 Grandmaster. This concept SUV isn't quite as effortlessly stylish as its predecessor but is indeed a dramatic departure from contemporary Hyundais. The future at Hyundai will be nothing if not interesting...

The 2018 Hyundai Kona has certainly impressed us, at least in its turbocharged, all-wheel-drive form. It makes healthy power — 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque — to hustle around town and up on-ramps. It also has a playful chassis and suspension that provide responsive handling with minimal body roll. But Hyundai also offers the Kona with a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder making just 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. And no matter what engine you choose, if you pick a front-wheel-drive Kona it'll be saddled with a primitive torsion-beam rear axle instead of the AWD's independent multi-link setup. All of this sounds like a recipe for disaster, but as it turns out, the 2.0-liter Kona is mostly as good as its force-fed iteration, just slower and cheaper...

The first thing you need to know about the Genesis G90 luxury sedan is that it's definitely not a Hyundai, even though it's made by Hyundai Motor Group.

Genesis is the young, high-end brand from the South Korean auto conglomerate, which has been careful to distinguish the luxury division from its more affordable Hyundai and Kia lines of sedans and sport utility vehicles...

All Veloster models offer torque vectoring control (TVC), an active cornering feature that uses the electronic stability control and powertrain control systems to improve cornering during more “enthusiastic” driving. TVC uses wheel-speed sensors coupled with ESC algorithms to apply braking force to the inside front wheel during high-speed cornering. This active braking redirects power to the outside front wheel in the turn, reducing wheelspin and improving corner-exit acceleration. One thing’s for certain — this Veloster is far better equipped to tackle the twisties than Gen One, maybe even good enough to run stages in the Targa Newfoundland rally...

The Ioniq is offered with a choice of three powertrains: Hybrid, Plug-In Hybrid, and Electric. Hybrid models are available in three trim levels: Blue, SEL, and Limited. The Plug-In and Electric Ioniqs are offered in base and Limited trims. Electric models are only available in California at of the time of this writing.

The 2019 Ioniq is a very likeable little car and competes well in the segment, despite going up against mainstay contenders like the Toyota Prius. Hyundai has done a good job of making the Ioniq look and feel like a normal car—something the elder statesman Prius has yet to completely pull off...

...Now Hyundai is in the market with an all-new version of the Elantra GT that, with the addition of the Sport name, now comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that produces 201 horsepower along with 195 ft.-lbs. of torque. It spins up quickly, hitting the power band at just 1500 rpm, giving the Sport more spirit that we would have ever thought possible...

This year, Hyundai has come up with its own version of what is quickly becoming a popular new segment of vehicles. We, of course, are referring to the segment known as a “Hot Hatch”! Volkswagen has always been somewhat of the rogue leader in this department with the Golf GTI, which is a very affordable way to get to over 200 horsepower in a hatchback...
