Veloster One of Coolest Cars Under $18K

If everything about you except your pocketbook screams “Cool,” consider the sporty Hyundai Veloster as your next vehicle. The fastback Veloster, popular with millennials and the street racing crowd, recently made the list of Kelley Blue Book’s “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000.” The list proves there are affordable options for people looking for a bit of pizzazz in their everyday drive. Check out the new Veloster today at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Pocketbook-friendly Veloster Offers Fun Driving Experience

“When we look at these rankings, we factor in not only price, but what we describe as a ‘cool factor’ represented by a vehicle being both fun to drive and fun to own,” said KBB market analyst Jack R. Nerad. “The Veloster definitely fits the bill here, with a visual styling and ownership value that gives first-time owners and other budget-conscious buyers a fun experience without having to break the bank.” With a unique three-door configuration, the Veloster stands out from a crowded market of compact vehicles that look very much alike. Offering a variety of unique color options, unique badging and chrome-tipped exhaust, the different Veloster models really let you unleash your inner cool.

Value Edition Adds Savings

For a bit more money, you can select the Hyundai Veloster Value Edition and get tons of features not offered in the base model and save almost a thousand dollars over the cost of buying the options separately. “The Value Edition epitomizes our desire to provide consumers more for less,” said Mike Evanoff, Hyundai Product Planning Manager. The Value Edition includes a panoramic sunroof, proximity key with push button start, navigation system, Blue Link telemetry with remote start, 18-inch alloy wheels and a premium audio system. “These are amongst the most sought after options in a car, in one convenient savings package,” Evanoff added.

Turbo Increases Driving Fun

While the base Veloster offers plenty of pep to please most people, move up to the top of the line Hyundai Veloster Turbo to maximize your driving experience. With a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6L engine that produces 201 horsepower, the Veloster Turbo is lightning quick. It also includes all the cool features of the Value Edition, and you can choose either a 6-speed or 7-speed dual clutch manual transmission. Torque vectoring control keeps you planted to the ground when taking corners at high speeds, while large bolstered sport seats help you remain firmly in place. Swing by Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale today to see just how cool it can be to drive a new Hyundai Veloster.

Four Good Reasons to Consider a Hyundai

Aside from stylish design, performance that takes a back seat to no other auto manufacturer and the affordability factor that few others can match, there are four great reasons for you to consider Hyundai for your next vehicle purchase:

Quality and Workmanship

Hyundai only has one rule when it comes to manufacturing their cars and SUVs: “Make it Better.” What started out as a discount alternative to the big three automakers in the American market has made remarkable headway in a short period of time. Attention to detail and quality craftsmanship shows in everything from the precise stitching of the interior to the resounding “thud” you get when you slam a Hyundai door. Hyundai leads the world in customer loyalty for a reason; people understand value and don’t want to leave a good thing once they’ve found it. Impress yourself by taking a look at the fit and finish of the entire inventory when you visit Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.


Hyundai doesn’t develop technology for the sake of technology. Every single advancement and innovation has one express purpose; to make your daily commute simpler and more enjoyable. From designing better engines with top-rated fuel efficiency without sacrificing power to keeping you in touch with the outside world through a sophisticated infotainment system, Hyundai technology continues to break through barriers. The Blue Link Telemetry system does everything from help you find your car in a crowded parking lot to getting the temperature just right before you sit behind the wheel.


Although there are a lot of things about a new car that are more fun, there is nothing more important than safety. That new car smell or premium wood trim may be what motivates you to make a purchase, but it’s the placement of air bags, the design of the chassis to divert energy away from the cockpit in the event of a crash and camera and radar technology that help you avoid crashes that will get you home safely at night. Hyundai vehicles are consistently rated at the top by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, as well as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

What’s Next?

Although your 20-year-old Hyundai Elantra is probably still running just fine, there’s nothing quite as exciting as see what’s the next big thing to come down the highway. As you can see when you view the inventory at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale, the engineers and design artists at Hyundai are having a ball dreaming up new and imaginative ideas for the future of transportation. From the all-new IONIQ to concept vehicles that are still just pencil marks on a drawing board, Hyundai is pushing the boundaries of conventional thinking to deliver safe, fun and effective solutions to tomorrow’s transportation problems.

KONA Coming This Summer

With a cascading grille and aggressive appearance that fits in neatly with Hyundai’s design philosophy, the sub-compact KONA SUV will be making its first appearance at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale this summer. The design, while still under wraps, is rumored to provide outstanding visibility, increased driving comfort and nimble driving dynamics. Named after the KONA district on Hawaii’s big island, the new SUV continues the tradition of Hyundai naming vehicles after desirable travel spots.

KONA Adds to SUV Lineup

The new KONA will be the smallest vehicle in the Hyundai SUV lineup, filling a spot on the rung below the compact Tucson and midsize Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport. It joins the IONIQ and Elantra GT as new offerings this summer, giving consumers just another reason to visit Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale. As gas prices remain at relative lows, American consumers continue to clamor for SUVs of all shapes and sizes. Although the KONA will be in the sub-compact category, look for the seating position to be elevated and the vehicle’s stance to be wide and aggressive. All-wheel drive will be an option on the new KONA.

Now’s the Time to Buy a Tucson

If you can’t wait for the KONA to arrive, or perhaps need something a little larger, there’s never been a better time to buy the affordable Hyundai Tucson. Hyundai’s “Better than Ever” sales event is offering up to $4,000 total savings, or $2,000 cash back and 0 percent financing for 60 months. The Tucson comes six different trim levels starting at just $22,700. Even the base SE comes with a 5-inch color touchscreen infotainment system with rearview camera. Move all the way up to the top-of-the-line Limited and the price still begins at less than $30,000 while offering a larger touchscreen, leather seating surfaces, power seats and a supreme Infinity brand stereo system.

Santa Fe Offers Even More Room

Choose the Santa Fe Sport or Santa Fe and you get comfortable seating for five adults with up to $5,000 total savings during the “Better Than Ever” sales event. The Santa Fe Sport comes with a 2.4L engine that delivers 185 horsepower and 27 mpg on the highway. The Santa Fe offers 290 horsepower from its 3.3L engine while still delivering 25 mpg on the highway. You can wait for the KONA to arrive this summer or head over to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale today to take advantage of the phenomenal cash back and finance offers available on Hyundai’s SUV lineup.

Blue Link Integrates With Google Assistant

The Google Assistant, a home electronic device that can do everything from turn on the lights to search the Internet for a good paella recipe using voice recognition technology, is now available to control Hyundais that utilize the Blue Link telemetry system. The Blue Link Agent allows you to simply tell your Google Assistant to program navigation, unlock your car or start it up and set the temperature to a specific degree. “We continue to lead the industry with these better customer-focused integrations,” according to Hyundai’s director of digital planning, Manish Mehrotra. “With the advent of Google Assistant’s capabilities, we want to provide Hyundai owners with the comfort of remote starting their car on a hot summer afternoon or the security of remotely locking their Sonata hybrid while it’s parked in the garage at the end of a long day.” This new technology will be available on the 2017 Hyundai IONIQ when it arrives soon at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Real World Examples of How This Works

Imagine you’re sitting at home and want to try out a new restaurant in town. You can simply tell your Google Assistant to “send the address of Bob’s Burger Joint to my Santa Fe.” The Assistant will find the address and confirm you want it sent to your Santa Fe. Upon your confirmation, you’ll find the address locked into your navigation unit. You can also quiz the Google Assistant about the weather, and then have it set the climate control in your new Hyundai accordingly. If you have a plug-in hybrid Hyundai IONIQ, just tell the Google Assistant to start charging your car and you’ll have a fully loaded battery when you’re ready to go out in the morning.

Features Include Honking the Horn

As with any app, there will be more features in the future, but for now the Google Assistant can take your Blue Link-enabled Hyundai and program the navigation system, honk the horn, flash the lights, start and stop charging, start the car, adjust the climate control and lock and unlock your vehicle. This service will be free for three years on all 2018 Hyundais as well as the 2017 IONIQ lineup. The Hyundai IONIQ hybrid is now available for a test drive at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale. An all-electric IONIQ and plug-in hybrid will be available later this year. The IONIQ is the first vehicle in North America to offer three different types of powertrains, emphasizing Hyundai’s commitment to clean fuels and environmental accountability.

Noting that the Hyundai “stands out” in a field of competent competitors, the Automotive Science Group (ASG) recently honored the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid for “Best All Around Performance,” and the Sonata sedan as “Best Economic Performance” in the field of full-size sedans. “In a highly competitive class, the Sonata is a standout that provides fuel efficient technologies at a best in class value,” according to the founding partner of ASG, Colby Self. “Additionally, five Hyundai vehicles earned ASG’s Best 5 All-Around Performance honors, further reinforcing Hyundai’s position as a market leader.” For the best selection of Sonata’s in the Valley, look no further than Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Selections Based on Ecological Economics

ASG has created the Automotive Performance Index (API), which combines social, economic and environmental performance when evaluating vehicles. This includes the cost of ownership for the first 6.5 years, including the initial cost of the vehicle. All three determining factors are equally important when it comes to evaluating a vehicle’s worth. Making sure that building vehicles does not overtax an already burdened resource system is an important part of ASG’s evaluation. “The recognition by ASG is a testament to Hyundai’s commitment to all aspects of performance and providing the best possible experience for our customers,” said Hyundai senior group manager Brandon Ramirez. “Our high marks across these measures demonstrates our drive to do better, not just in one aspect but across the board.

Sonata Hybrid Comes in Four Flavors

Most companies offer a hybrid model in one flavor, but the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid comes in a whole range of tastes. Choose the base SE and you still get modern features such as a proximity entry key, push button start and Blue Link telematics while still earning 45 mpg on the highway. Step up a smidge to the Limited and Hyundai adds blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, leather seats and sporty 17-inch alloy wheels. When you head to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale for a test drive, make sure and look at the Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid Limited. These two models let you bring your vehicle to a full charge at night while the car rests in the garage. The Limited model also has an Infinity premium stereo system, Xenon headlamps, rear parking sensors and smart cruise control that keeps you a specified distance from the car in front. All the Hyundai Sonata hybrids have a lifetime battery warranty to go along with the limited 5-year, 60,000-mile bumper to bumper coverage.
