Hyundai looks to rattle the Civic Si and VW GTI

The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is a revitalized version of a type of car many mainstream automakers are slowly giving up on entirely: the affordable sports car. Rivals like the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen GTI spring to mind but, generally speaking, car companies crank out more and more SUVs and crossovers while this once thriving segment dwindles in numbers.

In South Korea, we test Hyundai's latest hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

When we travelled to South Korea to test out the new Hyundai Santa Fe, we also got a chance behind the wheel of the new hydrogen-powered Nexo fuel-cell SUV. Hyundai unveiled the Nexo at CES in January as a replacement for the Tucson Fuel Cell, which logged miles and gathered data in 18 countries over the course of its generation. The Nexo is an improvement: It's more efficient, packed with smarter driver assistance technologies and, in our opinion, is more attractive.

Don’t be shy. You won’t look smug (or confused) in these hybrids.

Prius, watch your back, because the Ioniq is gunning for you.

First Ride

Our autonomous test run proved rather uneventful. And that's a very good thing.

A fine bit of affordable fun.

It's not perfect, but it is very entertaining.

This sedan takes comfort seriously.

The 2017 Genesis G90 has a short options list, lots of room in back, and plenty of comfort. The new twin-turbo V6 also brings the twist.

Improvements All Around, But Don't Get Too Excited

Hyundai has put effort in the right places in improving its volume sedan model. We take the fanciest one for a drive to see what's new.

Prepare To Not Be Blown Away

Like most new cars, the 2017 Elantra is a little better than the model it replaces in many ways. We found out just how much in our first encounter with the new compact sedan.
