Hyundai Tuscon N Model in the Works? New Report Suggest Its Happening

Hyundai’s N performance sub brand has bold aspirations for the performance vehicle market. With the i30 N and the U.S. exclusive Veloster N covering both sides of the globe with their hot hatch performance and the Elantra GT N-Line signaling the emergence of the N-Line lineup, new rumors suggest that an unlikely Hyundai offering could be the third model in Hyundai and N’s ruthless assault on the performance SUV segment. While we had our collective sights on perhaps seeing the smaller Kona CUV receive an N branded model of its own, several company insiders revealed to the folks at Auto Express that the Tuscon SUV could indeed be in the running for inclusion into the N brand family. When viewed in its current guise, the Tuscon is not necessarily the first nameplate you think of when asked to name a performance SUV. The Tuscon is a solid and capable family …

Hyundai Unleashes N-Line Range With All New Elantra GT N-Line

We are big fans of the Hyundai Veloster N and it is no secret that we were eager to see what the N-brand had up its sleeve when it first made its U.S. debut back in 2018. But what if you are a performance minded buyer that wants some of the charm and appeal that the N Brand has to offer, but might not have the pocketbook needed to sign on the dotted line for a fire breathing Veloster N? Hyundai has unveiled an interesting alternative with the all new Elantra GT N-Line. While this new model is still not the GTI style sibling that some folks wanted instead of the Veloster N, Hyundai designers still managed to add some spice to the already confident lines that define the standard Elantra GT. Like its overseas cousin the i30 N, the Elantra GT N-Line infuses more athletic prowess into its design …

Hyundai Unveils Luxurious Three Row Palisade In L.A.

Following a very meticulous teaser campaign that revealed an all new Hyundai three row SUV was indeed in the works to replace the long running and outgoing Santa Fe XL (as well as a sneak peek we received at a recent company event,) the Korean car giant has finally confirmed what many had suspected, the arrival of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade. The exterior styling of the Palisade is still very utilitarian, but Hyundai designers managed to incorporate plenty of lines and curves into the design. This is especially apparent in the front and rear fascias, with these areas featuring the bulk of the curves and creases that are in this otherwise square-ish SUV. Sleek LED infused headlights and a prominent front grille solidify its luxurious intentions, while the large taillights further amplify the strong and sophisticated character that oozes out of the Palisade when viewed by passersby. Hyundai is also …

Hyundai Confirms Palisade Name For New Three Row SUV Ahead of LA Auto Show Debut

Hyundai has so far kept a very tight veil of secrecy surrounding its new 3-row flagship SUV with only a few light teasers, and a preceding concept hinting at its existence, but with LA fast approaching, the Korean car giant has finally confirmed a small slice of information, and revealed the official name for this very important utility offering, Palisade.   Depending on who you ask, the Palisade moniker is derived from a whole swath of inspiration. According to Hyundai, the name is inspired not only by a series of coastal cliffs, but also the strength of an ancient fortress. Others will naturally point out the Palisade islands in southern California as well as the nearby affluent neighborhood of the same name. Either way, this bold name change is a clear departure from its predecessor the Santa Fe XL which will cruise off to retirement when the Palisade eventually makes …

Hyundai and Kia Unveil Solar Panel Boosted EV Charging Solution, Expected To Appear In 2020

Once limited to experimental vehicles and ultra luxury hybrids, roof mounted solar panels are seeing a resurgence as EVs slowly become a more focal piece of the automotive landscape. Hyundai and Kia aim to take them to production reality by unveiling their plans to put them on production cars in a move that could have big ramifications for the broader automotive market as a whole.   Of course, a key caveat is that they will not be on all production vehicles, with Hyundai and Kia claiming that only “selected vehicles” will be able to be outfitted with them. When the panels eventually arrive on the scene, they will play two key roles depending on the vehicle they are equipped to. For example when outfitted to an electric vehicle like the Ioniq, they will help charge the battery during driving in a fashion that is similar to a cell phone being …
