Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept

Amazing Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept

Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept has a great design, inspiring perfection by its aluminum grille, low roofline and long hood.

At the rear we observe amazing taillights, heat extractors and wide exhaust outlets. The wheels attract by the carbon-fiber trim and the exterior was styled in California, at the Hyundai’s US Design Center.

I think that being a part of william hill online bookmakers can help me buy one beautiful Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept in the near future.

Now, let me speak about the engine. HCD-14 Genesis Concept by Hyundai uses a 5.0 liter V8 engine, a direct injection unit with 8-speed automatic gearbox. Just imagine that this concept has a recognition system, knowing the driver and its preferences. This powerful engine offer the perfect “roar”. The look, the engine, performance, all the concept is amazing, don’t you think?

At the interior, the Hyundai HCD-14 it’s luxury. It offers milled and laminated wood into the center console, 3 screens offering information screens for the driver and front passenger and an instrument panel display. Good enough for your taste?
Hyundai offered this concept as a Kia competition, and I think that the design offers Hyundai first place, with the HCD-14 concept, the future premium sedan.

Just take a look at the new HCD-14 Genesis Concept by Hyundai and you’ll see that this is the evolution of cars, which will be into future series production.

The Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept was presented first time at Detroit Auto Show, this year, and it is really one of the future Hyundai’s premium cars.

Fresh News On The Best Korean Cars!

In the world, things happen at the speed of sound, so don’t be surprised to hear that many elements have changed since last week. Especially in the car manufacturing business which tries to surprise its buyers with new and interesting stuff. Let’s see together if they actually manage to do this or not.

The biggest and latest fact about our beloved Korean cars revolves around Kia and Hyundai. These two companies are faced with another lawsuit due to their incorrect mpg claims that have misled the buyers. This problem appeared in the U.S. Central District Court in Los Angeles and people declare they have been led to believe that the mileage will be smaller. Surprise! It didn’t happen this way and now the two companies want to compensate the ones that had to suffer. But, since no job is that easy, the declarations states that the compensations offered will not cover the lost value of the vehicles.

“Plaintiffs and the Class have been damaged by Hyundai’s and Kia’s misrepresentations, concealment, and non-disclosure of the incorrect fuel economy numbers, because they were misled into purchasing Hyundais and Kias of a quality different than they were promised, and paying higher fuel costs they would not otherwise have paid.” This is a quote from the suit that hopes to bring in the amount of $775 million. Don’t know if they are going to make it, but the models who are kept under observation are the 2012 Hyundai Accent, 2012/13 Elantra, 2012/13 Veloster and from the Kia lineup Optima Hybrid, Rio, Soul and Sportage.

We don’t know how this is going to end, but we do promise to stick to the news and find out more. However, this lawsuit will probably not affect Kia and Hyundai as much as the “enemies” would want. And as a proof we have the Kia K3 that has revealed its quality looks. Built on a  Cee’d platform, this car will feature a 1.6 l  GDi petrol engine that can deliver up to 140 hp. Among features, buyers will enjoy chrome body mouldings, big alloys, satnav, trip computer and leather seats. Pretty interesting if you ask me. For the US this K3 will be known as Forte while for the rest of the world it will wear the Cerato name.

 

And last but not least, Hyundai (the Veloster model) comes up with a dual clutch gearbox that plans to improve fuel economy and give sports drivers a better experience.  The intention is to offer a new satisfaction to those with a serious driving background that are looking for something new from a car. With the suit and all, comes a bit ironic, but life goes on and everyone must move with the flow.

Well, pretty much this is the news that will keep the car fans wondering what is going to happen next. Plenty of people are eager to learn about the new updated brought to the models but a mistake like this might cause real disappointment among buyers.

We will try to come back with fresh news and see what will happen next. Until then, have a fabulous weekend!

Hot News From The 2012 SEMA Auto Show!

We haven’t even erased the Paris grin of our faces that we are already in for another treat: the 2012 SEMA Show! For those of you who are not very familiarized with the insights of this show, here you have some general notions about this lovely event.

This year’s SEMA will take place on October 30th  – November 2nd  at the Las Vegas Convention Center. What better place to have fun with unique concepts if not in Las Vegas, right? Here, some of the greatest minds of “carring” will meet and spend a few fabulous days together, time during which those present here will have the chance to learn many useful things. For example, the attendees will enjoy educational seminars, cool product demonstrations, special events, networking opportunities and many other interesting things. This is to die for!

Unfortunately, the SEMA is a trade-only event and not open to the general public unless they want to leave there with a new best friend. So you will have to check info about it online, instead of actually living the dream. But don’t get discouraged, because this is fantastic too.

Last year, over 60, 000 local and international buyers were present at the show and they had the chance to see a lot of fabulous stuff. ATVs, Korean cars, luxury, muscle, offroad, sports cars, compact, trucks or exotic cars and parts, tools or components.   And speaking about Korean, which I am sure you have been all wanting to see at this show, rumor has it that we will be seeing a couple of good models.

Hyundai is the leader of course with 3 new concepts. At least, this is what we know so far. Ark Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec Track Edition, ARK Veloster “Alpine” and Veloster Velocity Concept.

The former two ones are in partnership with the fabulous ARK Performance. For the first one, these guys decided to upgrade the Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter, direct-injected engine to a fantastic 395 horsepower at 6800 rpm and  340 lb.-ft. at 5400 rpm (axle-flexing). And as you’ve probably already noticed, the exterior is pretty unique in design. They added sporty flared over-fenders, an aggressive front splitter, a carbon-fiber hood with heat-extractor vents, ARK carbon plate clutch kit and dual mass flywheel, Yokohama ADVAN RS2 wheels and Nitto NT05 tires. Stunning!

For the second concept signed by ARK,  a Veloster was used and the boom is in the interior. The theme called Alacantra is destined to the snow lovers and is decorated with leather and WeatherTek breathable fabric, includes bigger brakes, a coilover system, and a practical air motion cup suspension kit.

 

And last but not least, the Velocity concept is tuned by the guys at Cosworth and among some of its features also adds performance pistons, a great turbocharger, an intercooler, intake manifold and charging design. The engine leads 400 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, while the Kumho Ecsta SPT 275/35R19 high performance summer tires are simply amazing.

 

This is pretty much all for today folks. But don’t worry, because next week I will come back with fresh and exciting news about the SEMA 2012 Show, Korean cars and many other interesting topics. Stay tuned and enjoy a fabulous weekend!!

The Latest News on Hyundai and SsangYong!

The hot news travel quick, so here are some of the most exciting novelties about the hottest Korean cars.

1. Hyundai gets a new partner to help reinvent its racing attitude. Recently a deal has been closed between Hyundai and the famous engineering design and  manufacturer Cosworth. Their forces will unite to recreate the amazing  Genesis Coupe also known as the Cosworth Genesis Racing Series (CGRS) which will be present at the upcoming 2012 SEMA show.

The upgradings are pretty impressive, since Cosworth plays with the Coupe’s 3.8-liter, direct-injected engine bringing it to 389 horsepower at 6400 rpm and a torque of 325 lb.-ft. at 5100 rpm. But this is not all that comes from under the hood or the interior.On the inside fans are welcomed with personalized steering wheel, shift knob, pedals, shift boot, sport seats and big brake system.

The exterior on the other hand, will also shine with a perfect satin-gloss blue finish, aero front splitter, gunmetal-finish lightweight racing wheels, integrated rear spoiler, and blackout rear diffuser.According to Nicole Armbrustmacher, director of marketing at Cosworth Americas : “The rear-drive Genesis Coupe is simply a great platform from which to build our ultimate Cosworth Genesis Racing Series street model. The Cosworth Genesis Racing Series Coupe truly demonstrates the purpose-built performance potential of the affordable Genesis Coupe line. We’re proud to partner with Hyundai for this ultimate racing series model.”

I think we will just have to wait and see the SEMA show. So exciting!

2. The second news comes, surprisingly from SsangYong’s garden which returns with the ultimate model of  Ssangyong e-XIV Concept presented at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. How in God’s name have I missed it? I don’t know, but it is time to find out as much information about it as possible.

From my sources, this gorgeous model pairs a 1.0-liter two-cylinder gasoline engine with a 107-horsepower electric motor and to top that up it also adds a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. This is meant to give the vehicle a theoretical full range of about 373 miles. Rumor has it that this fiery car will be able to reach 50 miles only through its electric powers. Although a total recharge will take about 4 hours, it can also be pumped up with some energy in just 20 minutes.

The exterior is inspired from the XIV 2 CUV Coupé, which is pretty dynamic and environmentally friendly. In addition to this, the Ssang Yong concept has a high-tech solar panel and killer tires that suggest both comfort and safety. The best thing about it though, and I hope you will notice it too, is the optimism on this car. Just look at it and say it is not smiling. You can’t!

On a quick run for the interior, we find  a four-bucket-seat configuration for privacy, space and safety, carbon fiber all over the place and a deadly style that allows the driver to feel connected to the car that he or she drives. The front panels that display vital information are always clearly and easily displayed in order to ensure maximum concentration on driving.

And this is pretty much all for this week guys. The Korean cars are slowly developing and working for improved methods and concept cars that can make us the happiest owners ever. And we are not going to let them go without a proper announcement.

Have a great weekend!

Say Hello To The 2012 Paris Motor Show!

Hellooooo people! Are you enjoying this beautiful fall already, or are you too busy to think about the tiring week that is about to pass? I hope it is not the second one because boy, you are going to be sorry later. Life is too beautiful to spend it complaining or feeling sorry.

Therefore, I am here to help you see that. Well, more the Paris Motor Show, than me. You are going to love it so much!

First of all, for those of you who are not necessarily familiarized with this show let me give you a couple of information that will get you into the spirit.

The Paris Motor Show, or how it is known in France, Mondial de l’Automobile, is a biennial show, held in October and which is considered to be the first important motor show in the history. It was organized first in 1898, by Albert de Dion and has gathered around millions of people and investors. Thus, nowadays the Paris Motor Show is one of the most popular shows that unite new productions and concept car debuts under the same roof .

The 2012 edition will start Saturday, 29th of September and end Sunday, 14th of October. If you are around, then you should know that in order to get to Place de la Porte de Versailles, where the show will be hosted, you have several options. By metro and tram (Porte de Versailles Station- no 12, 8, Balard Station-no 3,2), bus and bike (no 39, 80 and no 15049-2 Rue Ernest Renan) or by car (A1, A3, A14, A10).

As for the prices that will assure you the access at the show, they are 13 € for adults, 7 € for teenagers or students and 11 € for groups of minimum 15.

Ok, now that we have cleared all this stuff, it is time to go big. Who will be there?

Starting from a general point of view, the visitors will have the possibility to check out amazing cars like BMW 3 Series Touring, Chevrolet Trax , Citroën DS3 convertible, Ferrari Enzo Successor, Fiat 500X, Jaguar F-Type, Lexus LS Facelift , Mazda6, Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake, Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid, Opel Adam , Peugeot 301 , Porsche 911 (991) Carrera 4/4S , Range Rover (L405), Škoda Octavia III or Volkswagen Golf VII.

Don’t worry I haven’t forgot about you Korean cars lovers. Among the ones which will proudly come in front of the jury will be Kia Carens , Kia pro_cee’d, Hyundai i20 WRC and Hyundai i30 three- doors.

While the former model is sleek, family-friendly, with an aerodynamic and more athletic design, the second model is a three- door format that comes with both gasoline and diesel engines, 1.2/ 1.6 and a hell of a package.   As for the i20 WRC Hyundai all we can say is: wow. A tuned, upgraded car that will stand as a model for Volkswagen Polo-R and will come with a turbocharged petrol engine of 200bhp. And last but not least, Hyundai i30 smashes the competition with its fabulous sporty look added to the already known“fluidic sculpture.” 

 All these will go on sale starting with the spring of 2013 in different areas of the world. Yey!

But there is more to come, so stay tuned for the best motor show of the year!
