Hyundai Motorsport was fined €50,000 (approximately $56,540) from the World Rally Championship for accidentally using the wrong rear side windows on their car. They didn’t just grab the wrong ones for one event, either. The wrong windows have been in use for all of 2016.
My friend Tom was driving around in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles yesterday, and spotted this well-disguised mule. No badges were visible, of course. Well, none on top. Below, it’s full of Hyundai-tagged bits, and this seems to be the next Elantra GT.
This week Jalopnik’s driving the 2016 Hyundai Genesis. Don’t worry, we’ll get to “how it compares to a 5 Series.” What do you want to know that you can’t find in the brochure?
Fatherhood offers the opportunity to no longer feel compelled to be cool or fashionable. My Brooklyn neighborhood seems to be split between dads who embrace this freedom and those who consider their kids another expensive accessory. The Hyundai Veloster Turbo Rally is that dad still trying hard to be cool.
If seeing that a vehicle has a zero-star safety rating isn’t enough to frighten a person out of his or her mind, seeing said vehicle in a wreck probably is.

Up and coming World Rally Championship driver Hayden Paddon rolled his Hyundai off the Ponte de Lima stage of this weekend’s Rally Portugal, starting a fire in the dry brush past the road. Ford Fiesta driver Ott Tänak rolled minutes later at the same spot.

Hayden Paddon got his first ever World Rally Championship win last weekend at Rally Argentina after Jari-Matti Latvala rolled out of the lead. The final epic power stage that sealed his win is a mesmerizing downhill descent on rough roads with no shortage of fans lining the surreal, rocky landscape.
The new Hyundai Ioniq family of cars is so green, they’ve made the interior panels with powdered wood and volcanic rock. They whipped out the crunchiest of the Rothschilds to introduce it and presumably lend it some environmentalist cred. Today, they unveiled an all-electric model with a range of over 100 miles.
This is not an 18-foot-long Hyundai, it’s an 18-foot-long Genesis. There’s a difference. But, like many of the biggest ships in the world these days, it’s still from Korea.
Hyundai calls this the New York Concept, but it’s actually the Genesis G70, the new luxury brand’s 3 Series fighter. I think it looks a like that Aston Martin Lagonda, but I’m okay with that.
Kiwi Hayden Paddon is a rising star in the top level of real-cars-on-real-roads motorsport, the World Rally Championship. And he has some surprisingly good advice on what to look for when you buy your first car.
This is the world’s first vehicle platform with three electrified powertrains, the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ.
We have no idea how much the 2017 Genesis G90, the first flagship of Hyundai’s new luxury brand, will actually cost. But just judging from the back seats, it’s going to be definitely up there. It does not have two chairs back there. It has two thrones.
Hyundai’s first Genesis-branded luxury yacht will hit the market with a 365 horsepower twin-turbo V6 and a 5.0-liter V8 with 420 ponies. Meanwhile, the Korean brand promises five new Genesis models to follow the flagship in the next five years.
