The Hyundai Tucson Sport needs no introduction as it has certainly made a mark. However, they only sold 516 of the previous model which means the new Hyundai Tucson Sport has to be even better (and it is). Not only does the new Hyundai Tucson range in South Africa feature new sporting design changes but it also has improved performance and added diesel power.
Car accidents happen and they are nasty to the victims and often confusing to the responders. The lag between the accident and help arriving, the responders assessing the victims and then getting them to an emergency room can be critical.
Now imagine your car not only telling emergency services that you had an accident and where it happened but also telling them of your likely injuries and suggesting the best facility nearby to treat you.
The launch of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata at the New York Auto Show earlier this year underlined just what South African motorists are missing with this mid-sized sedan. Sadly the Sonata is no longer available here. This is why it’s sad.
Now at the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing, Hyundai has declared: “A small step for a valve, a giant leap for valve kind.”

“I have spent the entire afternoon in the car, but no trip was more than four kilometres long.” This was an actual quote from a work-from-home mom in Cape Town’s southern suburbs.
If you have two kids or more at more than one school, chances are that this is your life. Every afternoon is an extra-mural merry go round.
Around a decade ago hydrogen fuel cell vehicles were considered the solution to our dirty road networks, with only water coming out the exhaust and refueling that takes the same time as filling with petrol or diesel.
Globally Hyundai cars are very popular with women as well as with traditional male buyers. Hyundai celebrates this phenomenon through its sponsorship of the FIFA Women’s World Cup currently playing off in France.
Everyone multitasks when driving, even if we’re only thinking about work. So you have an entire road network full of vehicles driven by people not quite paying 100% attention. You know you are a great driver, but others may not be so good. The result? 94% of serious accidents involve human error.
