Hyundai car reviews

Even ten years ago, Hyundai was synonymous with low-budget, low-appeal machinery. What a turnaround the Korean company has had in recent years. It's become the darling of the retail buyer, offering record-breaking five-year warranties, low prices and lots of equipment. Its products - spearheaded by stars like the i10 and i30 - can now challenge the best that European brands have to offer.

All of our reviews included reliability information and dealer satisfaction so you can find out if Hyundai offers good value for money.

Hyundai Matrix reviews

The Matrix is a reliable mini-MPV made by Hyundai between 2001 and 2010. It has a high driving position and good visibility, but crash protection and security lag behind more modern rivals.

Latest model: Hyundai Matrix (2001-2010)

Hyundai Santa Fe reviews

The Santa Fe has always been a roomy, practical and comfortable SUV but with each model change, Hyundai has been edging it steadily up-market. Now it scores on style as well as value for money.

Latest model: Hyundai Santa Fe (2012-) 

Hyundai Veloster reviews

The Hyundai Veloster is a sports coupé like no other, with only one rear passenger door, which is on the kerb-side of the car. Launched in 2011, it's a bold return to the market for sporty cars for Hyundai, following the demise of the Hyundai Coupé in 2009.

Latest model: Hyundai Veloster (2012-)

Hyundai i10 reviews

The Hyundai i10 is a city car which was launched in 2008 and is the smallest model in Hyundai’s range. Now in its second generation from 2014 onwards, it offers good value for money and is surprisingly spacious compared to key rivals like the Toyota Aygo and Fiat 500.

Hyundai i20 reviews

The second-generation Hyundai i20 takes aim at big-selling superminis like the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa. It majors on space and standard equipment. We're first to drive it at the launch in Spain.

Latest model: Hyundai i20 (2015-)

Hyundai i30 reviews

The Hyundai i30 is a medium family hatchback, competing head-to-head with established big-name models like the VE Golf and Ford Focus. It represents a real step forward for Hyundai in both quality and performance and, along with its stable-mate, the Kia Cee'd, it has helped Korea step into the premier league of world motorcar manufacture.

Latest models: Hyundai i30 (2012-) & Hyundai i30 Tourer (2012-)

Hyundai i40 reviews

The Hyundai i40 is a large saloon and estate, taking on the likes of the Ford Mondeo, Vauxhall Insignia and Peugeot 508. It majors on value, but also represents a big step up in quality for the Korean brand.

Latest model: Hyundai i40 (2012-); Hyundai i40 Tourer (2011-)

Hyundai ix20 reviews

The Hyundai ix20 is a mini-MPV - an inexpensive, spacious people carrier that's easy to drive and use. It's aimed at the same customers as the Citroën C3 Picasso and Nissan Note, and shares much of its underpinnings with the Kia Venga.

Latest model: Hyundai ix20 (2010-)

Hyundai ix35 reviews

The Hyundai ix35 is a crossover vehicle targeting customers considering the benefits of compact 4x4s, like the Nissan Qashqai and the Skoda Yeti. Think of it as a go-between of the Hyundai i30 and Santa Fe, combining car-like driving with a raised stance.

Latest model: Hyundai ix35 (2010-)

    Hyundai Elantra Saloon 2

    The Hyundai Elantra was available from 2001 to 2006 and is a medium hatchback, competing when it was new with the likes of the Toyota Corolla and the Kia Cerato. It doesn’t cut the mustard for safety compared to its competitors, and is hopeless on security. But Hyundai owner satisfaction is good and the Elantra is cheap to buy, if perhaps somewhat rough round the edges.

    Hyundai Accent 2000

    The Hyundai Accent is a medium hatchback, only available as a used car since it was superceded by the Hyundai i30, launched in 2007. Even back then, the Hyundai Accent was technically quite a way off the mark compared to mainstream competitors, like the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, but it's cheap to buy and has a comparatively a low insurance grouping and with owner satisfaction is good.
