Nobody has ever said: “I could really do with some time in the hospital.” Hospitals are scary and lonely, impersonal and full of strange smells and sounds. And patients are there because they are ill, so the external factors are magnified by them feeling unwell, maybe scared. Now multiply all that by a small child and hospitalisation becomes an ordeal.
If you are a quiet introvert, someone who eases through life hoping not to be noticed, who settles for a little Marie biscuit rather than a steak sandwich, the Santa Fe is not for you. If you want the full buffet of life, like to laugh and go with friends, don’t mind spending a bit, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a good choice.
Every motor show is filled with creative innovations, dreams and aspirations from car manufacturers around the globe. The 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show is no different as there have been many interesting projects and concepts including the new Hyundai Electric Race Car.

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.
Now at the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing, Hyundai has declared: “A small step for a valve, a giant leap for valve kind.”
Okay, that is a bit of a stretch, but some kind of valve timing control has been around for fifty years, and Hyundai has just added the crucial next step.
Technology can be both good and bad. Flight has allowed us to break the bonds of gravity and travel easily to far lands, to space. It has also led to aerial warfare, the horrors stretching from Guernica to Hiroshima, Indochina to 9/11. Flight is not good or bad, it’s how you use it…
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.
