Good news is hard to come by these days but perhaps this is a great place to start. Hyundai Automotive South Africa has announced that the new Hyundai Venue will be available in South Africa late 2019.
First introduced at the New York Motor Show by the Hyundai Motor Company, this brand new Hyundai Venue will join the line-up already consisting of top quality cars such as the Kona, Creta, Tucson and Santa Fe.
Hyundai’s 2020 Sonata Hybrid gives you the best of both worlds, with a cherry on top. It shares the sensational styling of the conventional sedan recently launched in New York. It gives you the fuel economy of a hybrid. And six hours in the sun will fully charge the battery.
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.
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.
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.
A college kid in a red Veloster pulls up at a light next to a cop car. Aggressive revving starts, cops glare in disbelief, the kid looks embarrassed and perplexed. Wheels spin, smoke. The camera pans wider – there is a very small Veloster between the big cars making all the noise. Purple body, orange flames, big tires, huge exhaust – the full comic treatment.
If you think the SUV segment couldn’t get any better, just wait for the New York Auto Show as you’re in for a pleasant surprise. The all-new stylishly ‘boxy’ Hyundai Styx will make its debut this year joining the Kona, Creta, Tucson, Santa Fe and the Palisade in the already impressive global line-up.
It comes as no surprise as the next generation of Hyundai’s top-selling hatchback has been spotted. That’s right, the new Hyundai Grand i10 was seen during a test run near the company’s manufacturing facility in Chennai.
Adding to Hyundai’s already impressive range of vehicles across all segments, we could see a WRX-style ‘N’ model by 2022. The Korean automaker has already dazzled us with sporty excitement on the Hyundai i30 N Fastback version but they are planning something incredibly special. Some believe it will be the pinnacle of the Hyundai ‘N’ brand and dubbed it a “halo car”. Early signs suggest it will have all-wheel drive and a petrol-electric powertrain.
Since it was first launched globally in the early 1990s, the humble Hyundai Accent has gone from strength to strength and proven to be one of the most versatile vehicle models in the Hyundai stable. Currently, in its Fourth Generation here in South Africa, and Fifth Generation in North America, Europe, and the Far East, the Hyundai Accent has become the mainstay of the Hyundai brand in so many countries thanks to its model variety, stylish looks, reliable nature and fun to drive features.
