Hyundai unveils N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo in Frankfurt

Bugatti isn't the only car manufacturer showing off their Vision Gran Turismo concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show, as Hyundai has just unveiled its impressive contribution. Dubbed the N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo, the Korean car company has cast aside its image as a maker of small, affordable vehicles when coming up with this 872-horsepower supercar. And it looks like Hyundai might be trying to permanently shed that image, as concept is also serving as a launch of their N high-performance division, which will produce cars for the real world and not just video games.

Hyundai “Vision G” Concept gives a glimpse of future luxury

Most of the time, when you hear the word "luxury", you naturally think of extravagance and no holds barred embellishments.

Hyundai provides DIY Android Auto update for 2015 Sonata

Today, Hyundai is fulfilling its promise and its boast of being the first auto maker to put Android Auto on a production vehicle. While many of its rivals have also advertised support for the in-vehicle version of Android, those are still coming in future models. In contrast, starting with Hyundai's 2015 Sonata, owners can already start experiencing the hands-free and safe driving benefits of Android Auto. They can even do it themselves if they want to, with Hyundai providing the software and the steps to perform the upgrade.

Hyundai Apple Watch app brings remote start and more

Hyundai Apple Watch app brings remote start and more

Hyundai has introduced its new Blue Link app for the Apple Watch, allowing those with Apple’s wearable to control certain functions on their car from the convenience of their wrist. One such feature is flashing the car’s lights from the Apple Watch — a convenient way to find the car in a crowded parking lot or scare away a nosy passerby. Using Blue Link, the wearable can also be used to lock the doors using Apple Watch and as a remote start button for firing up the engine from “almost anywhere”, says the auto maker.

Hyundai missed its fuel-cell target massively, but it’s not giving up

Hyundai missed its fuel-cell target massively, but it’s not giving up

Electric and hybrid cars may be most peoples' first thought when it comes to green travel, but Hyundai isn't letting underwhelming sales sour it on fuel-cells. After a year of sales, the company has sold or leased a little more than a quarter of the hydrogen-powered Tucson EV it hoped to, with just 273 cars reaching drivers since production began in 2013. Although that's well short on its 1,000 target, Hyundai maintains that fuel-cells have more potential for the company than electric cars, though its logic may be a little skewed.

Hyundai patent outlines speed bump detection system

I'd wager at one time or another most of us have seen cars that have been customized by their owners or are so low from the factory that speed bumps can be a big issue. Even more annoying are larger speed bumps that are the same color as the road around them allowing them to blend into the surroundings to the point that many people hit them at full speed simply because they don’t see them.

Google's Android Auto push to take over the dashboard has begun in earnest, with Hyundai the first car company to offer the smartphone-tethered system on a production car.

Hyundai helps astronaut’s daughter send a message that could be seen from space

Hyundai helps astronaut’s daughter send a message that could be seen from space

Hyundai has helped a 13-year-old girl named Stephanie send a message to her father. The reason sending a message is so hard is that the girl's father is an astronaut aboard the ISS. To send the message, Hyundai sent a fleet of 11 Genesis cars to write a message that spanned a space as large as about half of New York's Central Park.

Hyundai’s 2016 Tucson bets on safety and economy

Hyundai’s 2016 Tucson bets on safety and economy

If you hadn't already realized it, the crossover is the must-have automotive trinket of the moment, with just about every brand weighing in with a baby SUV of their own. Now it's Hyundai's turn, whipping the silky covers off the 2016 Tucson, its own take on the segment with a focus on cosseting and fuel economy. Set to go on sale in July, the new crossover has a longer wheelbase than its predecessor, and now sits on optional 19-inch alloys for a meatier look. Really, though, this is all about braving the urban jungle in safety.
