Hyundai Spy Shots

Hyundai is one of two automotive brands owned and operated by the Hyundai Kia Automotive Group that operates in the US, the other being Kia. The Korean company entered the US market in 1986 with the Excel, which sold well but established a poor reputation for quality. Quality concerns were addressed with the introduction of the industry's longest powertrain warranty. Hyundai has also expanded its lineup to include larger cars, luxury vehicles, sports cars, CUVs and SUVs.

    1299533400

    Hyundai debuted the refreshed 2012 Genesis Sedan at this year's Chicago Auto Show, and in addition to revised styling and a brand new 5.0-liter V8, the Korean sedan's 3.8-liter V6 gets a slew of enhancements. By adding direct injection, the V6 now makes 333 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque – gains of 43 and 27, respectively, over the ...

    2011 Hyundai Elantra peeks out ahead of LA Auto Show
    1289336520

    Take a look-see at what slipped out of Hyunda HQ via the miracle of Twitter. Despite the best efforts of one very dedicated member of Hyundai's PR team, the 2011 Elantra managed to show the internet some skin ahead of its debut at the LA Auto Show. The new Korean economy fighter is fabled to break the 40 mpg barrier across the board all while wearing the ...

    Spy Shots: Hyundai Veloster spotted on West Coast?
    1288134000

    Our gadget-filled world means we almost always have a camera at the ready. Reader James W. was out and about on the highways of Southern California when he spied a camo-clad Hyundai on the move. With his iPhone 3GS at hand, he was able to snap a few photos of what appears to be the upcoming 2012 Hyundai Veloster. The wheels and most of the lines match a ...

    Spy Shots: 2012 Hyundai Sonata (i40) wagon caught testing again
    1282942560

    It's no secret that we Autobloggers are big fans of wagons. Unfortunately, the market here in the United States isn't as wagon-friendly as those in other corners of the world, and because of this, there are very few examples to choose from – most automakers would rather introduce crossovers, as it's a significantly bigger (and growing) ...

    Spy Shots: Hyundai HED-5 making the rounds
    1282922940

    Our buddy Rich Truesdell over at Automotive Traveler was out at one of his favorite spy shot locales and came across some Hyundai prototypes under wraps. Among them was a hatchback that Rich initially figured was the new Accent. It turns out it's more likely the production version of the Hyundai HED-5 undergoing testing. The Elantra-based competitor for ...

    Spy Shots: Next-gen Hyundai Azera caught in Europe
    1281113940

    The current Hyundai Azera is not a bad looking car, but compared to the glut of new models that already are or will soon be populating Hyundai showrooms in the next year, it's starting to look long in the tooth. Hyundai appears to be on the case, as an all-new Azera has just been spotted testing in Europe. Like the current sedan, the new model will slot ...

    Spy Video: Hyundai Veloster hits the road with VW Scirocco
    1279063500

    Hyundai's new Veloster sports coupe (or is that Tiburon or something else?) aims to write another chapter in the book of Hyundai's relentless pursuit of market share when it launches next year, and in this latest video, we see a still heavily camouflaged prototype running around with the likes of the Volkswagen Scirocco – a similarly sized ...

    Spy Shots: Clearest look yet at the 2012 Hyundai Veloster
    1278444660

    Our ever-vigilant long-lens warriors have managed to snag a passel of photos of the new Honda CR-Z fighter from Hyundai. The little hatch has shed a portion of the camouflage we've seen in previous spy photos, giving us a clear look at some of the three-door's (or is that four-door's?) sheetmetal. Near as we can tell, the compact has kept the ...

    Reader Spy: 2012 Hyundai Accent hatchback caught napping
    1278371760

    Eagle-eyed Autoblog reader James spotted a camouflaged compact hatchback sitting in a parking lot in South Korea the other day, and fortunately for us, he had a camera with him. At first glance, this is obviously a new Hyundai based on the upward sweeping crease along the side that is characteristic of Hyundai's new 'fluidic sculpture' design ...

    1277420460

    One of our alert readers was driving down Woodward Avenue in suburban Detroit when he spotted a prototype and quickly snapped off a few photos. That's where the mystery starts. We're honestly not sure what this sedan is. Being in Michigan, it almost certainly belongs to either the Detroit three, Toyota, Nissan or Hyundai, all of whom have technical ...

    Spy Shots: Hyundai Sonata wagon captured for the first time
    1275319800

    We recently published some renderings of what a station wagon variant of the new Hyundai Sonata might look like, and we now have our first actual photos of the real thing undergoing testing. While it (predictably) doesn't feature the two-door shooting brake layout we might have hoped for, it actually does look quite close to the four-door image. Hyundai ...

    Spy Shots: 2012 Hyundai Veloster sneaks out, shows off interior
    1272326400

    It's still cloaked in camo, but the 2012 Hyundai Veloster is beginning to shed its winter skin before its big reveal early next year. Not only has it gone green in the process, but details on its passenger side dual doors and interior are coming into focus. As we've noted before, the Veloster (or possibly Tiburon) appears to share two different door ...

    Next-gen Hyundai Accent caught totally undisguised
    1271516460

    Looks like we were spot on in our assessment of what we happened to catch out testing near Disneyland in California. As we suspected, the car in question is the next-generation Hyundai Accent, a fact you can clearly discern by comparing our spy shots and an earlier Korean "naked" shot with the two images in our gallery below from auto.ifeng.com. As you ...

    Typically when we show you spy shots, you're seeing photographs taken by people not directly employed by Autoblog. Today, however, is different. Yours Truly and Drew Phillips were driving back from San Diego after the Aptera state-of-the-state address. We were getting off the phone with Senior Editor Damon Lavrinc when I said, "And Drew's going to pull ...

    Spy Shots: Next-gen Hyundai Accent (or Elantra?) borrows several notes from Sonata
    1269720300

    The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is more stylish, more spacious, and flat out better than its predecessor. This seems to be the M.O. for Hyundai nowadays, as it rolls out a continual stream of new and/or revised vehicles that leave any old brand preconceptions in the dust. Vehicles like the new Sonata, Tucson, and the Genesis models are casting Hyundai in a ...

    With all the new product coming out of Hyundai, the Azera and Accent are beginning to stand out like the proverbial sore thumbs. To rectify the latter, Hyundai has begun testing the next Accent in the Great White North. Since the upcoming Veloster will fill the hatch-sized space in Hyundai's line-up, there's a good chance that the next Accent will only ...

    Earlier this year we learned that the Veloster was given the green-light by Hyundai's top brass and with an on-sale date sometime in 2011 as a 2012 model, work on Hyundai's new hatch is well underway. Caught weathering the wintery climes, the camo-clad Veloster – or maybe more accurately, the next Tiburon – doesn't divulge much about the ...

    It's been nearly two years since the Hyundai HED-5 concept bowed at the Geneva Motor Show, but in late 2008, the Korean automaker announced that a production version of the compact crossover would arrive in 2010. And here it is. Spied while testing in Northern Scandinavia, Hyundai's unnamed answer to the Opel Zafira gets substantially toned down from ...

In its current form, the Hyundai Azera (known as the Grandeur outside the U.S.) has been around since 2005, and despite the new Sonata's push upmarket, Hyundai apparently still sees the need for another model to slot in ...

    Hyundai is busy turning over its product lineup with significant redesigns already done or slated for some of its most important models. The 2011 Sonata has already had its coming out party, and the 2011 Elantra will follow shortly with a design seemingly inspired by its big bro based on these spy shots. The most telling design cues are the steeply raked ...
