Hyundai has been key to changing global perceptions of the Korean automotive industry, from basic utilitarian machines to well-built and highly capable cars. Pick almost any car from the current Hyundai range and you’ll be assured of sharp styling, efficient engines and decent performance, all backed by an impressive five-year warranty.
Hyundai builds a more traditional selection of city cars, hatchbacks and saloons as well as a pair of larger SUVs and the massive, eight-seater, i800 MPV.
Both the Tucson and the Santa Fe offer a good combination of practicality, commanding driving position and decent value for money in the face of fierce competition. The compact yet surprisingly spacious i10 supermini is one of Hyundai’s highest rated cars.
