    Sema: Hyundai brings 1,000-hp Genesis Coupe to SEMA, and plenty more [w/video]
    1415231400

    Hyundai has a thirst for horsepower. How else could we explain the scene you see above, in which there exists a 708-horsepower front-wheel-drive Sonata tuned by Bisimoto (black and white, above left) powered by Hyundai's 2.4-litre Theta II engine?

    1414940400

    There aren't many nameplates that have sold over 10 million units in the history of the automotive industry.

    Rumormill: Facelifted Hyundai Veloster to get new 7-speed DCT, Flex Steer
    1414612800

    No matter how you look at it, the Hyundai Veloster is an odd duck. With the vehicle's weird door configuration and styling that kind of looks like a modernized Honda CRX, the model is certainly unlike anything else on the road today. Since spotting one testing earlier this year (pictured above), we know that a refreshed version is on the way eventually, ...

    Featured: Top torque-to-weight ratios performance cars under $115k, $50k and $30k
    1412956800

    Horsepower may steal a lot of headlines, but the always-more-complex torque figure is often a critical one for both the workingman and the motoring playboy. The measure of rotational force is a function of horsepower and engine rpm, and it's also the twist that can liquefy one's tires or haul one's horse trailer. Good stuff. Sure, there's a big ...

    1411480800

    For the past two years at the SEMA show, the folks at Bisimoto Engineering have taken one of Hyundai's models and tuned it up to levels of power previously unimaginable.

    1411477200

    Coupefying hatchbacks is all the rage in the European market these days. Its what Opel and Vauxhall did with the latest Astra, and what Renault did with the Mégane, and now Hyundai is preparing to follow a similar formula, only in a smaller form.
