    First Drive: 2014 Hyundai i10

    THIS IS the longest and widest city car out there, and Hyundai wants to shout about it. ‘B-segment quality and practicality in an A-segment package’ is the rallying cry from the people behind the all-new i10, and a significant increase in size helps it on its way.One suited company rep even described the car as more of …

    Santa Fe Comes Early For Some (Hyundai Santa Fe 2006-2012)

    ENGINES – Big SUVs means big engines, and Hyundai’s Santa Fe is no different. In a nod to its USA market roots you can have a V6 petrol motor, while the more sensible choice for European buyers will always be the more frugal 2.2-litre diesel option.

    BABY BLOOMER (Hyundai i20 1.2 Active)

    ARE KIDS today spoilt? OK so the default answer to this question is yes, but look at it in a motoring context. If you were fortunate enough to be young and buying a new car 20 years ago, your choice was almost non-existent: it was a cheap supermini or a bus pass. And even though it was brand-new, zero miles on the clock …

    HOW does the concept of a four-door coupe grab you? Usually the door count is one less if, as is the case, you use the industry convention of counting the car’s hatchback tailgate as a ‘door’.
