Hyundai is busy refreshing its entire range, to save everyone some time they’re even doing it in pairs now with the Creta and Tucson.
Most people would dismiss an affordable Hyundai hatchback as dreary but our tester begs to differ.
It seems like Hyundai is on a mission to keep all its products fresh ‘n crispy – we recently attended the launch of their face-lifted H-1 bus range.
Hot on the heels of the Grand i10 refresh, its bigger brother i20 just received an injection of youth.
How do you improve on perfection? While it may seem odd to use that term for the report of a Hyundai i20 refresh, I struggled to see where (or why) they even bothered. The outgoing model only arrived 2,5 years ago and in my humble opinion, it still looked perfectly modern while offering a great value proposition.
Hyundai nóg ‘n stap voor
Hyundai het pas die derde beste verkoper in Suid Afrika verbygesteek en met goeie rede. Hoewel die ekonomie steeds hinder, is Hyundai se algehele verkope steeds goed. Dié week het ons die nuwe Grand i10 getoets, wat dalk net presies die rede vir Hyundai se sukses weerspieël.
Hyundai se wakker Elantra
”Kalm, eenvoudig, prakties, bekostigbaar en familievoertuig.” Hierdie is die vyf gedagtes wat gewoontlik sinoniem is met Hyundai se Elantra. Dit het nog altyd gedien as deeglik ontwerpte, dog praktiese familie voertuig vir die langpad.
A new engine and clever updates underline this car’s excellent value proposition
The Hyundai Grand i10 has always been one of my first recommendations in the compact hatchback class. Its price, specifications and ease of use make for a great combination, although I felt that the last one I tested (less than a year ago) was getting eclipsed by some of its newer competitors.
The extinct attributes
Not too long ago, things looked rather different on our roads. Only farmers and plumbers drove bakkies, Moms would zip between extramural activities in Kombis or station wagons, nobody had heard of crossovers or hybrids and occasionally you’d see something which is now almost extinct: a sports sedan.
The rosy time
Roughly three years ago I reviewed the then-new Hyundai Grand i10 and, besides a few upset Getz owners, had nothing but praise to bestow upon the accomplished Korean. Now though, after a mild facelift, things didn’t seem as rosy as when I first got acquainted to the compact hatchback.
The epic trip
I’m sure you’ve heard of the custom that bumping into a friend for the second (or third) time in quick succession means you should go for coffee together? Well, I firmly believe in this and when it comes to cars, the new Hyundai Tucson and I are going for coffee, muffins, cappuccino and a light brunch.
