The goal of automakers today is to create mobility solutions for us, not just produce vehicles that we want to drive. This means creating vehicles, the shopping experience, the test drive and the overall ownership of a vehicle that is as ingrained in our lives as smartphones have become n the past few years. For Hyundai, this challenge will be met with the IONIQ which is coming to the US market in the near future for us to enjoy. This car is meant to answer every one of our mobility solutions that come up on a daily basis.
If I were to tell you there was a Korean made car that was able to stand out in a market that includes the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, Nissan Altima and Kia Optima you might be surprised and excited to learn what that car was.

While many economy class cars are not powerful and have a negative feeling associated with them it’s important for you to see there are some economy class cars that are actually great to drive; here are some for you to consider.
For years cars have gotten heavier because the new technology installed adds more heft to a vehicle, especially when you add a battery pack to a hybrid. In the past few years many automakers have worked to bring some of these weights down for the purpose of maximizing power and adding more fuel efficiency. You can enjoy more from a car with lower weight from every aspect, more power, more performance and certainly better fuel mileage and automakers can offer you smaller engines to increase the fuel mileage even more. To go along with that when a car is lighter and has turbochargers attached to the engine the horsepower can match higher cylinder numbers with smaller engines, giving us the best of both worlds.

With these two beauties as possible options in the nearly $30,000 range it’s hard to decide which one you might want to buy. You may be assuming someone would choose the muscle cars from Ford, Dodge, or Chevy that all come with V6 editions for this price, but these are made more for those who enjoy a calm cruise in the country rather than high performance drives that can be whipped around twists and turns. This means in this price range the choices are now down to the Hyundai Genesis and the Nissan 370Z which both offer high performance V6 engines, rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission to give you the performance you want.

Anyone who has seen a Hyundai Veloster on the road, has either marveled at the intelligence of its engineering, or been completely perplexed by its appearance. The Veloster offers the feeling of a four door sedan with the body shape and look of a sports coupe. This is achieved through the use of a large coupe door on the driver’s side of the car but a smaller two door configuration on the passenger side that offers access to the back seat by using a small door.
