The Hyundai Elantra GT Is The VW Golf Competitor You Keep Forgetting

Commuter cars are supposed to be affordable, reliable, and practical. That makes the default choice the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla.

My Dinner With Hyundai Product People

This past week, Hyundai brought me and a bunch of other auto journalists to a fancy, wood-slathered resort in San Diego to show off some of the new cars they've been building like the Veloster Turbo. As you'd expect, they did lots of feeding of us hungry, hungry writers. I took advantage of the opportunity with the… » 6/29/12 2:00pm 6/29/12 2:00pm

This Is The New Hyundai Elantra

If this isn't the new Elantra, then can someone please tell us why Hyundai's Dan Bedore is toilet-papering a Saturn? Or, maybe Bedore knows this is the only way we'll write about the new Elantra. Well played. [via Hyundai] » 11/09/10 3:20pm 11/09/10 3:20pm

We saw a sneak preview of sorts for the Hyundai Elantra Touring with the Beach Cruiser Concept at SEMA, and again in hastily taken amateur spy video in November.
