The Hyundai Motor Company has announced its new roadmap, Strategy 2025, with a focus on securing their position as industry leaders in smart mobility. Strategy 2025 will underpin the automaker’s core business pillars – Smart Mobility Device and Smart Mobility Service.
There used to be a time when it was assumed that things were noisy out there on road – horns blaring, trucks passing in a flurry of sound, wipers, wheels on tarmac, wind whipping past, you name it; noise comes at you from everywhere when you get on the highway. Happily, forward-thinking auto manufacturers like Hyundai have made it their mission to find a way for motorists to enjoy a quieter, more comfortable ride.
What is your driving style? You may think you know, but you are most likely wrong. The reason for this is that Hyundai has done the research and found there are 36 750 ways to drive. So, what is your driving style?
There is a new word in the self-driving lexicon: platooning. Specifically, this refers to large freight trucks in convoy at the speed limit, each less than 17m behind the one in front. Sounds crazy? Let’s talk about it.
In the States, they are talking about meeting the unspoken needs of urban adventurers. In Australia, they say a Ute had better be a Ute, a commercial bakkie sitting on a ladder frame. So two totally different vehicles for two totally different markets. Let’s look at these options.
South Africans love a nice SUV, and with good reason – there are so many wonderful places to explore in our beautiful country, and many lie somewhat off the beaten track. As such, even if you’re an urban dweller with a yen for all things glamorous, there may be some occasions on which you’d like to take the road less travelled to enjoy some time away from the bustle. This is when a good-looking SUV with some seriously attractive fuel consumption stats is just what you need.
The highly anticipated Korean Hyundai i30 N performance hatchback is set to arrive in South Africa as early as January 2020. Upgraded brakes and a limited-slip differential are true indicators that it’s ready for the track while claiming a speedy 0-100km/h in just 6.1 seconds.
The problem with disasters is that the terrain often becomes disastrous. Earthquakes, forest fires, hurricanes, avalanches, floods and man-made major oopsies usually leave the terrain impassable, even for the most rugged off-road vehicles. Weather and smoke can prevent the use of helicopters, even when there are enough to go around. First responders are often dropped at the edge of the debris field, then scramble for kilometres over broken terrain to find, stabilize and retrieve victims. And yet minutes are crucial when it comes to saving lives.
Entry-level should be a description of the price, not the car. The newly-relaunched Hyundai Atos is plenty of car at a very good price. A welcome return after its lamented 2012 departure.
There are many good reasons why some drivers prefer a small entry-level car over a hulking SUV. They are cheaper to buy and cheaper to run if your budget is tight or you simply prefer to spend your money on other things. Whether you are looking at fuel consumption or new tyres or anything in between, smaller costs less.
Let’s face it, bakkies are a popular sight in many countries across the world and now, there’s a new addition to the market. The Hyundai pickup truck not only looks spectacular but its ladder-frame chassis also promises to be tough and rugged.
