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 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.”
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…
The Hyundai Motor Company has always been known for its cutting edge design, so it no big surprise that it has two finalists in this year’s International Design Excellence Awards®. The International Design Excellence Awards®, or IDEA. The IDEA is held by the Industrial Designers Society of America and recognises design excellence in a huge array of categories ranging including sporting goods, office & accessories, medical & health, outdoor & gardens, sports, leisure & recreation and, of course, automotive & transportation.
The 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) are the latest market offering from the Korean car giants. Although not readily available in South Africa yet, these two models of the Sonata sing a very sweet song.
With both your car and cellphone getting smarter and smarter wouldn’t it be nice if they can get smarter together? Well of course it would! Hyundai has already got plenty of functionality when it comes to pairing your smartphone to your vehicle, but now Hyundai is taking it a step further with its new Apple CarPlay.
We’ve known it for a long time and now the awards are agreeing with us! The Hyundai Sonata and Santa Fe have just driven off with more awards, and this time as “Best Midsize Car for the Money” and “Best 3-Row SUV for Money” respectively.
“Sonata and Santa Fe being recognized by trusted site U.S. News & World Report means Hyundai has successfully been able to offer shoppers class-leading safety features, the latest technology, fuel economy and bold design, all at an outstanding value” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Hyundai will continue to innovate to deliver a spectrum of award-winning products that deliver high value and driving experience.”
Hyundai is looking to increase its presence in its current markets in the east as well as grow its foothold in Europe and is planning to achieve this in part with its ambitious plan to sell 228 000 of its new 2015 Sonatas in Korea and abroad.
