This Santa Fe doesn't need pavement to get to Vegas.

Bisimoto built a bonkers show car.

For when you need Bugatti power in a four-door crossover.

A suspected drunk driver told a Santa Fe cop something most arresting officers never hear: 'Thank you.'

Hyundai updates the Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport for 2017, with a fresh new face and more available safety technology.

The weak markets in China and Russia caused the first drop in Hyundai global deliveries since July, but the US market set a January volume record.

Struggling to meet demand for its utilities, Hyundai has plans to turn down sedan production and boost crossover output. New crossovers will be added and at least one four-door nameplate will go away.

Hyundai will shift some production of the Santa Fe Sport to its Alabama factory this summer to adjust to growing demand for the CUV.

It has taken Hyundai nearly 30 years, but the company has just celebrated a major milestone by selling its 10 millionth car in the US. Half of them were Sonatas and Elantras.

The Hyundai Santa Fe gets a refreshed look and new tech for a model revision that's only in South Korea for now. The look could preview upcoming changes in the US, though.

Hyundai is apparently preparing an updated for the Santa Fe crossover, with revised styling and equipment to keep it relevant for another few years on the market.

Rumor has it that Hyundai is going to add a third vehicle at its Montgomery, AL factory to accommodate an SUV or CUV.

The idea of Hyundai marketing a luxury automobile might have seemed ridiculous a decade ago, but that was before the Genesis sedan, Genesis coupe and Equus came along. Now that buyers seem more accustomed to the notion of an upscale Hyundai, the Korean automaker is said to be considering launching a luxury crossover to take on the likes of the Lexus RX and Cadillac SRX.

General Motors is the undisputed king of recalls for 2014. No one is going to contest this point. The American company is far from the only one with vehicles that need fixing, though, as Hyundai has announced another recall totaling 419,000 vehicles in three separate campaigns.

Hyundai remains in hot water in its home market after the South Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport alleged that the country's largest automaker, along with Ssangyong, misstated fuel economy numbers on some of its crossovers. Now, though, the country's consumers are going after Hyundai, with a lawsuit from 1,500 Santa Fe owners.

Hyundai is, understandably, "very confused by the fine and the different results."

Trucks are king in Texas, so the annual Truck of Texas awarded by the Texas Auto Writers Association gives automakers big bragging rights. This year's Texas Truck Rodeo featured 63 trucks, crossover and SUVs, and the 2014 Ram 1500 took home the prestigious Truck of Texas, giving the pickup back-to-back wins for this award. The good news didn't stop there for Chrysler Group, as Ram, Dodge and Jeep dominated most other categories, accounting for 15 of the possible 24 awards.

Surviving a zombie invasion isn't easy, and Hyundai takes life-or-undead situations pretty seriously, as made clear by its devotion to creating zombie-annihilating vehicles. Earlier this year, Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comic series that gave birth to the hit television series of the same name, designed a Zombie Survival Machine around a Hyundai Veloster hatchback.
