Type: Mid Sized SUV
Drive: Front Wheel and optional All Wheel DriveFor the past decade, Hyundai has been offering the Santa Fe. With the style and functionality of a traditional SUV, The Santa Fe provides the sporty ride quality, handling and fuel economy of a car. The reasons to buy a Santa Fe over its competition are its low price and long list of standard features. Highlighted by its contemporary appearance and upscale and roomy interior design, the Hyundai Santa Fe is one of the better values in the price bracket of the midsize crossover SUV class.
Type: Mid Sized sedan
Drive: Front Wheel DriveHyundai builds cars that are not just easy on the pocketbook, but easy to live with as well. Like most vehicles in the midsize sedan class, the Sonata offers front-wheel drive, numerous safety features and a choice of trim levels that include sporty and plush variants. Setting the Sonata apart, however, is Hyundai's lower pricing. The standard engine on every Sonata trim level is a 2.4-liter direct-injected inline four-cylinder good for 198 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A 2.0-liter turbocharged engine generating 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque is available on SE and Limited models. Sonata's fuel mileage is also impressive, consistently achieving 30 mpg in mixed driving conditions. As a family or commuter car, the Hyundai Sonata is a nice place to be thanks to its spacious cabin, comfortable seating, solid build quality and quiet highway ride.
Type: Sports Coupe
Drive: Front Wheel DriveThe Tiburon is an entry-level sports coupe offering the choice of a 4 or 6 cylinder engine. The Tiburon has nicely filled the void left by the discontinued Nissan 240SX, Mazda RX-7 and Toyota Celica coupes, offering a fully entertaining vehicle at an attainable price. The front-wheel drive gives the car some all-weather capablity when outfitted with snow tires, making it a popular choice for Colorado and other Mountain States buyers. The Tiburon sports coupe has been instrumental in transforming Hyundai's North American image from a maker of somewhat bland econo-boxes into a brand offering a complete line of vehicles from economy cars to SUVs, luxury cars, and with the Tiburon, sleek and dramatic sports cars. Because of the Tiburon's success, and other increasingly exciting designs, Hyundai is one of the fastest growing car sellers in the North American Market today.
