“This feels like it was intended to be a hot hatch from the word go”
This is Hyundai reinforcing its hot-hatch credentials. First, back in late 2017, we had the i30N, now we have the i20N. Soon, a Kona N will be along, because hot crossovers are a thing these days. But the i20N is interesting,

From the brand’s beginnings until the present
Kia started out inauspiciously in 1944 as Kyungsung Precision Industry, making steel tubing and bicycle parts. It changed its name to Kia Industries in 1952 (the firm says that its name comes from two Korean characters that roughly translate as 'rising from
The brand’s newest model has been revealed

Classy
Last month, Kia got its re-branding to a hot start with the reveal of the K8. With clean surfaces, a bold face, and a few energetic design elements here and there, the vehicle is easily one of its sharpest-looking sedans
What squinty eyes you have
Welcome, budding crossover buyers, to the 754,316th entrant (approximately) into the market: the Hyundai Bayon.We'll get straight into business: It's roughly the size of a Nissan Juke, which it quite possible out-bolds in the design department. Hyundai

The first new model to feature Kia’s redesigned logo
Did Kia really need to revamp its brand? Chances are, some of you didn't think so. Sure, overhauling a company's look every once in a while is pretty standard practice in any industry. But, as they say, why tinker with
An ideal starter car?

“It simply drives like an i30N with the seat ratcheted right up”
Good point, and I'm not sure it's camouflage when it's emblazoned with the company's logo, either. It's like army fatigues with the word 'soldier' repeated all over them. But I think the point is Hyundai wants you
A hot hatch this most definitely isn’t
This is the Hyundai i30, now in its third generation since 2007 and updated earlier this year. It's described as the Korean company's 'DNA car' and the backbone of its range. But while its badge hails from the far east,
This powertrain is best suited for highway cruising
You're not the only one to have said that, which we found particularly curious. Curious because as thine eyes will attest, this is not a big, V12-engined shouty supercar, nor is it a particularly rambunctious hot hatch with fiery exhausts.
