Hyundai Blue Link gets Google Home support, is now standard for 3 years

Hyundai has announced that Blue Link, its connected car service, now works with Google Home and, therefore, with Google Assistant. Thanks to this support, certain Hyundai owners with a Google Home are able to control aspects of their vehicle using voice commands, such as firing up remote start or locking the doors from within your home. As well, Hyundai says that Blue Link is going to be a complementary, standard feature for three years on all of its 2017 IONIQ models and all of its 2018 vehicles.

2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric and Hybrid First Drive: Reaching past the Prius rainbow

2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric and Hybrid First Drive: Reaching past the Prius rainbow

Hyundai's Ioniq initiative is more than just a green flare rising up from the sea of increasingly electrified automotive options. The decision to introduce a family of not one, not two, but a trio of new environmentally-friendly automobiles - the Ioniq Hybrid, the Ioniq Electric, and later this year, the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid - is the second wind for Hyundai's self-celebration as a major automotive player after last year's launch of the Genesis luxury sub-brand. In many ways, this eco after-party is even more significant than the Genesis project, given that the premium market promises eventual profits. No one, it must be noted, makes anything resembling real money on hybrids and EVs, which means that Hyundai is building these cars in large part to demonstrate to the rest of the world that it can afford to do so - and do so comfortably.

Hyundai will soon follow voice commands via Google Home

It may sound a bit ironic but soon Google Home will also be able to control things outside your home in the near future. Granted, your parked Hyundai car will most likely still be on your property anyway. Always at the front lines of integrating Google’s new technologies, Hyundai will be demonstrating at CES 2017 how it plans to link their cars to your living room via Google Assistant in Google Home. In a nutshell, this means that you (or anyone else), will soon be able to remotely lock or start the car on (voice) command.

Hyundai developing next fuel cell SUV with 348-mile range

Hyundai's first fuel cell was the 2014 Tucson SUV, and despite it already being overpriced and lacking in range compared to rival vehicles, the car maker is hard at work on a successor that ups the ante. According to Nikkei, the Japanese business publication, Hyundai is planing to debut a second generation fuel cell SUV in early 2018, boasting a range of 348 miles on a single tank.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review: Affordable SUV more than matches its 7 passenger peers

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Review: Affordable SUV more than matches its 7 passenger peers

There's no way to avoid it: every mainstream car company needs a three-row SUV in its line-up to be taken seriously these days. We're long past the first-generation efforts of automakers unsure of how best to tackle the extended family demographic, which means if you're going to seat seven or more in 2017, then you're going to have to do better than merely go through the motions. More to the point, you're going to have to beat rivals like the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Learning to walk with Hyundai’s incredible exoskeleton

Leaning forward, trying to put my weight on my left leg, I gingerly tap one of a small cluster of buttons on the crutch helping support me. With a faint electric whine, my right leg snaps up and then forward. I've just taken a step with Hyundai's H-MEX and, while I'm lucky enough to have no issues walking on my own, this "Medical Exoskeleton" could represent a whole new world of mobility for those currently confined to wheelchairs.

The Las Vegas Strip does its best to grab your attention, but it's the displays inside Hyundai's Ioniq Autonomous Concept that are holding my gaze as the car drives itself. Nevada's loudest, shiniest city is trying to make a name for itself as more than just gambling and Celine Dion impersonators, aiming to wrest the title of "most tech-friendly" from San Francisco. That means self-driving cars plowing the streets, as automakers like Hyundai attempt to crack the code on the mobility of tomorrow.
