Hybrid Mileage in a Midsize Sedan Auto manufacturers can call a car “all-new” if it has gone through a complete redesign, top to bottom, inside and out. Then there is something called a mid-cycle refresh, where only certain items are changed, buying the manufacturer a bit of time before the all-new model comes out. With the 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, the Korean company landed somewhere in-between the two with the changes and upgrades far more significant than the usual refresh. The biggest take-away Hyundai wants you to know is they have increased the value on the 2018 Sonata Hybrid. Yeah, we can all get behind that. Drivetrain and Performance The 2018 Sonata Hybrid is powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, producing 154 horsepower (hp) and 140 pounds-feet of torque. The 38 kilowatt electric motor is good for 51 hp, bringing the total system horsepower to 193. Power gets to the front wheels through a six-speed electronic automatic transmission with Shiftronic, if … [Read more...] about Road Test: 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited
How long do hyundai accents last
Calling something “unremarkable” is usually a bad thing. No one likes being called unmemorable or bland. But when it comes to crossovers, which are primarily meant to haul lots of people and stuff, it’s a term that can easily be used in a complimentary manner. After all, few people are looking for crossovers that drive like tall sports cars, and no one wants something so bad that it’s remarkable. Not to mention that only a few crossover buyers want or need significant off-road capability – and only a few crossovers really offer that, anyway (which hasn’t stopped brands, including Hyundai, from touting their crossovers’ “off road” ability. More on that later). If you’re selling a crossover in 2018, all you really need to do is come up with something comfortable that isn’t terribly boring to drive. Something that has all the right safety and convenient features, has a price in line with the competition, and won’t … [Read more...] about 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe First Drive – Remarkably Unremarkable
Hyundai’s Accent might not be everyone’s first choice for a fun car, but as today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe custom Ute proves, it can be made to be so. Let’s see if this tiny trucklet’s price also puts the accent on value. Well, you did it again. Last Friday’s 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS had one of the closest votes in NPOCP history. What made it such a competitive contest? Well, it might have had something to do with its $29,995 price and the fact that it came with an uber rare manual gearbox. In the end, the nays narrowly outweighed the yeas, aas that Porsche shifted down in a 50.56-percent Crack Pipe loss. Poor Porsche, so close. Let’s start this week off with something a little less ostentatious, but just as neat as last Friday’s Cayenne. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and everyone in between, please put your hands together for the HYUNDAI ACCENT! *crickets* Okay, admittedly, the Accent has long been one of the least interesting … [Read more...] about At $3,300, Could This 2000 Hyundai Accent Pick Up Be The Cute Ute Of Your Dreams?

The Malaysian car market is fairly predictable, but every once in a blue moon, someone will spring a surprise. And as surprises go, the introduction of the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid late last year (yes, we’re in 2017!) was a huge one. It’s not just the availability of the Korean green car here either – the timing, the fact that it’s locally assembled, the pricing; everything was scarcely believable to pundits and competitor brands alike. It has been awhile since a regular, non-plug-in hybrid car was launched in Malaysia. Ever since the tax-free window of opportunity for CBU hybrids (and electric vehicles) ended in 2013, the two Japanese companies that profited the most from the battery rush have stopped promoting the genre. Understandably so, as without government incentives, prices ballooned to the usual high levels that we pay for imported cars. Hybrid cars made a recent comeback, but the proponents this time are premium brands pushing plug-in hybrids. The small … [Read more...] about DRIVEN: Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid review
