2015 Hyundai Genesis First Drive

Hyundai Has Something Luxurious up its Sleeve
by Luke Vandezande


For its second generation, the South Korean luxury sedan born to be a rule breaker is completely new and at it again.

Smashing the Glass Ceiling

America builds trucks. Italians craft supercars. The Japanese create transportation appliances carefully masked to look like cars and until several years ago, South Koreans seemed content to complete their part of the picture with inexpensive automobiles. At least that was the case in North America until Hyundai grabbed on with both hands and shook things up with a rear-wheel drive, V8-powered sedan ostensibly capable of applying a value-first philosophy to the luxury world.

The Genesis never sold in high volume, but it wasn’t supposed to. Like hiring the spin-doctors in AMC’s “Mad Men,” it served as a halo car capable of elevating its brand’s public image; but it wasn’t perfect.

Hampered by a front-engine, rear-wheel drive powertrain, the Genesis didn’t appeal to people besieged by snow through several months of the year. Especially at lower trim levels, it also suffered from underwhelming interior materials. The latter is a cardinal sin among luxury car customers.

AutoGuide.com's 2014 3-Row Crossover Shootout - Video
Mar 26, 2014 - 12:25 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Until the mid-1980s, those with large families usually bought station wagons with a who-cares-about-safety rearward facing third row of seats. But then the minivan was introduced and everything changed. For the next fifteen years, troops of kids were transported here and there in these pragmatic boxes on wheels. As is often the case though, consumer taste’s changed.

Today the three-row station wagons rival the mountain gorilla on the critically endangered species list while the minivan has become more passé than bridge clubs. Now there is a new king of big family transport – the three-row crossover utility vehicle (CUV).

And the Crossover Takes Over

After a brief foray with three-row body-on-frame SUVs in the early 2000s, the vast majority of auto manufacturers have settled on unibody crossovers to handle passenger duties of six or more. Last year, more than 1.7 million of these CUVs were sold in the U.S. compared to less than 525,000 minivans.

With nearly two million annual sales up for grabs, manufacturers are constantly tweaking their products to entice customers. Over the last year alone, all-new versions of the Hyundai Santa Fe, Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota Highlander hit the market while the Kia Sorento and Dodge Durango received significant updates. To see which CUV is the best value for the money, we gathered these five crossovers along with three older models; the large Chevrolet

2015 Hyundai Sonata Revealed
Mar 24, 2014 - 7:02 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
With a new look, a new chassis and plenty of new features Hyundai debuted the all-new 2015 Sonata in Korea today.

The popular midsized sedan has a lot to live up to, but at first glance, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata improves in every category and will surely entice current owners to consider upgrading. Borrowing plenty of the premium technologies first introduced in the new Genesis, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is also significant for the brand, having been designed using an evolved Fluidic Sculpture philosophy. The result is a refined, premium style while the overall size of the sedan grows longer and wider.

Compared to its predecessor, the 2015 Sonata uses 30 percent more advanced high-strength steel and features an ergonomic driver-focused interior layout. In addition, the cabin has become more spacious and luxurious while new technologies include: Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC), Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), a hands-free Smart Trunk, driver knee airbag, modern LED lighting, emergency stop signal, an electronic parking brake and heated rear seats. Overall, the Sonata grows nearly 1.4 inches in length and is almost 1.2 inches wider.

When developing the all-new sedan, Hyundai placed a focus on chassis rigidity to ensure it’ll deliver an all new standard for ride quality in the segment. The new model received thorough testing on the Nurburgring while reducing road noise, vibrations and enhancing driving

Check Out the Cars of the Future
Mar 18, 2014 - 5:43 PM - by AutoGuide.com
As close to an auto-industry crystal ball as any single page on the internet can be, we've launched a new Future Cars section dedicated to reporting on the latest in what's coming next.

There's an old belief that concept cars never make it to production. On the contrary, they almost always do; they just often change enough over time, evolving significantly from wild design studies to more practical people movers. The new AutoGuide Future Cars pages will let you track the development of your favorite model or keep tabs on what new an exciting cars are coming down the pipe.

From early rumors to spy photos our Future Cars pages will follow the development of highly-anticipated new vehicles until they reach the market sometimes years from now. We aim to give you the straight facts and plenty of enticing rumors on exactly what we do know about these cars, along with photo galleries of concept cars and, of course, video previews of the near-production vehicles before all the hard specs have been confirmed.
