Elantra and Sonata weigh down Hyundai's quality scores
Feb 28, 2014 - 12:16 PM - by Helios
The Hyundai Elantra and Sonata were seen as the hallmarks of Hyundai's forward progress in 2011, but just 3 years later the two models may be doing more to hurt Hyundai's reputation rather than help it.



JD Power and Associates recently released its Dependability Study. The study examines three-year-old vehicles for problems per 100 vehicles. Since the 2011 study for 208 model year cars, Hyundai has fallen from 10th overall with 132 problems to 27th in the 2014 survey of 2011 model year vehicles with 169 problems. This year also marks Hyundai's second year in a row of an increase in reported problems. Many of these problems, according to Automotive news, are due to faults with the Sonata and Elantra. One mitigating factor is that reliability fell, on average, throughout the industry for the first time since 1998.

The Sonata and Elantra are vital to Hyundai. In 2013 they were the company's best-selling cars.

Quote:
"We'll be closely going through the data to see where improvements need to be made. Hyundai's goal is nothing short of quality leadership, and the report shows we have work to do," Hyundai spokesperson Jim Trainor said in an email to Autoblog.
Hyundai has gone and hired back engineers that left over quality control issues. That certainly doesn't seem like the right way to fix the quality problems that the company is facing.

Have you found any problems with your Elantra?

Hyundai Intrado SUV Concept Revealed
Feb 24, 2014 - 3:09 PM - by Administrator


Images and details of Hyundai’s upcoming HED-9 Intrado concept have surfaced, following a singer teaser image released in December.

Bound for next month’s Geneva Motor Show, the four-seater Intrado previews the next evolution in Hyundai’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ styling language.

The look builds on the design of Hyundai’s sharp new Santa Fe, and we can likely expect elements of the Intrado’s styling to appear on future production models.

Hyundai Europe design boss Thomas Burkle describes the Intrado as a way of connecting with young buyers that focus on function-inspired design.

“[The Intrado is about] engaging with a generation of younger buyers with active, spontaneous and opportunistic lifestyles,” Burkle said.

“They are sceptical about the car industry as it is, but respond to objects they associate with pure, functional beauty rather than decorative form.”

Whether we’ll see the Intrado itself in showrooms is unclear, but we can at least expect an extra pair of doors to appear if a production future is confirmed.

The Intrado’s design showcases Aston-like tail-lights and a long sloping C-pillar, along with sharp fins down the profile and slender high-set headlights.
