Geneva Auto Show Prime Spot for Unveiling
The annual Geneva Auto Show is one of the industry’s highlights, allowing automakers to unveil new production and concept vehicles that may one day make their way onto American shores. Hyundai took the opportunity of this year’s Geneva show to unveil a New Generation i30 Wagon and the concept hydrogen FE Fuel Cell Car. Hyundai also showcased the new IONIQ plug-in hybrid, which will be making its way soon to the sales floor at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.
Europe Ready for i30 Wagon
Although there are no plans for immediate release to the U.S., the i30 New Generation Wagon shows the level of design and engineering for which Hyundai has become famous. The i30 has one of the largest boots in the European wagon category, with additional room under the boot floor. “The i30 Wagon speaks the language of the i30 family in terms of design and carries the new Hyundai family identity – the Cascading Grille,” according to Chief Hyundai European designer Thomas Burkle. “The tapering roofline and dynamic proportions give the Wagon an almost coupe-like silhouette. The sleek and dynamic profile is further emphasized by a rich chrome frame surrounding the side windows.”
Future Eco (FE) is Next Generation of Hydrogen
The reality of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles taking up a major market share of the U.S. auto industry is a step closer with the unveiling of the FE Fuel Cell concept by Hyundai. With a range of almost 500 miles before refueling, the FE Fuel Cell is a major step toward’s Hyundai’s goal of creating a zero-emission society. “Hyundai Motor has a heritage of building innovative, fuel-efficient vehicles and aims to become a global leader in sustainable mobility through its leadership in hyrdogen fuel-cell technology,” said Woong Chul Yang, Hyundai Vice-Chairman. “We want to realize our dream of a Hydrogen Energy Society and call upon stakeholders from various sectors, not just carmakers, to combine their efforts to ensure that hydrogen production, delivery and infrastructure are aligned.”
Plug-in Hybrid Final Leg of Triple Powertrain
The new Hyundai IONIQ, which will be available soon in the electric and hybrid versions at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale, also has a plug-in hybrid model that is coming later this year. An autonomous version was on display at the Geneva Auto Show, offering riders a virtual tour in the world of self-driving cars. “With the launch of the IONIQ plug-in hybrid, we are completing the IONIQ family and making e-mobility more accessible for everyone,” said Hyundai VP Jochen Sengpiehl. “With the choice of three electrified powertrains, the IONIQ is a unique offer.”
Recognizing Those Who Protect America
In an effort to give a little something back to those who serve and have served in the military, Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale and the Hyundai Corporation are giving an additional $500 discount on all eligible new vehicles through the end of this year. “We have the greatest respect for the men and women who make sacrifices to defend our country,” according to Hyundai Motor America VP Derrick Hatami. “We are proud to offer this incentive as Hyundai’s way of recognizing the hard work of our U.S. Military personnel and the support of their spouses.” The offer is exclusively for active and retired military members and current spouses.

Hippest Car Just Got More Affordable
Voted as one of the coolest cars under $18,000 by Kelley Blue Book, the sporty Hyundai Veloster just got more affordable with the release of the Value Edition. You’ll receive $950 in savings and a host of special features including a panoramic sunroof, push button start, navigation, automatic climate control and 18-inch alloy wheels with special sport tires. “The Value Edition epitomizes our desire to provide consumers more for less,” according to Hyundai product planning manager Mike Evanoff. “These are amongst the most sought after options in a car, in one convenient value savings package.” Check in with Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to see when the new model will be available for a test drive.
Peppy Veloster Offers Choice of Transmissions
Starting at just $18,100, the Hyundai Veloster is a solid sports car choice with a fun-to-drive attitude. The Veloster is powered by a 1.6L dual overhead cam engine which is either turbocharged or not, depending on your choice. Without the turbo, the engine produces a peppy 132 horsepower, but the addition of the turbocharger boosts that output to a very health 201 horses. If powering through the gears is your thing, you can choose the short throw six-speed manual shifter. Otherwise, the naturally aspirated engine comes with a six-speed automatic while the turbo Veloster has a seven speed automatic transmission.
High Strength Steel Provides Safety Cage
The fun Hyundai Veloster is constructed from 65 percent high strength steel, which not only makes for a safe environment, but also cuts down on road noise. The sport tuned suspension takes full advantage of all the power the Veloster can muster, providing firm handling through tight corners. Brake-based torque vectoring helps eliminate understeer and gives the driver a great handle on navigating the dips and turns of a weekend country run. Every Veloster has earned a 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and includes six airbags, vehicle stability management, electronic stability control and traction control. The Veloster is a fun car that protects occupants in the event of a crash. See the entire Hyundai Veloster lineup by taking a visit to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.
Veloster Includes America’s Best Warranty
One of the advantages of buying any Hyundai is you won’t have to worry about the cost of major component repairs for many years to come. Hyundai offers America’s best warranty program, including a 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty and coverage on the powertrain that includes 10 years and up to 100,000 miles.
Models Top List in Competitive Categories
Whether you’re looking for a comfortable four-door sedan or a sporty, adventurous SUV, it’s time to head to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale. Both the 2017 Hyundai Sonata and 2017 Santa Fe Sport were named by BestRide.com to its list of “BestRides.” Citing comfortable seats and maximum value, BestRide says people should not overlook the Hyundai lineup when shopping for a new vehicle. “Plenty of cargo room, a comfortable interior and an intuitive infotainment system put the Hyundai Sonata at the top of the list for midsize sedans,” according to BestRide’s Nicole Wakelin. “It’s a great value, even with the base model including a touchscreen for the infotainment system.”
The Sonata is an affordable alternative to other vehicles in the midsize sedan category, offering the choice of three different powertrains and features like a hands-free trunk, electronic emergency brake, 8-inch navigation color display and the ability to pair with your smartphone using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
Santa Fe Sport a ‘Screaming Bargain’
Packed with features that generally come in SUVs that cost thousands of dollars more, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a great choice for families or those who like to head off on weekend adventures. “The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Ultimate with AWD is a screaming bargain at $41,000. It is also the perfect size,” said BestRide reviewer John Goreham. “With plenty of knee room for the driver and a large second row, the Santa Fe Sport is nearly as large as the three-row crossovers on the market, but without the back row.” He added that the 2.0L turbo charged engine is a “gem” that makes the Sport “fun to drive.”
Power Choices Plentiful for Santa Fe
When you head to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to test drive the Santa Fe Sport, take notice of the choice of engines. The Sport comes standard with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that provides a peppy 185 horsepower. If you like, you can add an additional 55 horses by stepping up to the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. The 2017 Santa Fe three-row seating configuration offers a Lambda V6 that pumps out 290 horsepower. “The 2017 Hyundai Sonata and 2017 Santa Fe Sport are affordable, fun to drive and equipped with advanced safety technologies and infotainment systems,” according to Hyundai group manager Brandon Ramirez. “Having two Hyundai vehicles named as favorites by BestRide.Com shows that we are committed to providing better for our customers across our diverse lineup.”
