HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA CELEBRATES 30 YEARS IN THE UNITED STATES

What Began With Excel is Now Something Special

If you remember 30 years ago, “That’s What Friends are For” was the number one-selling record, Ronald Reagan was U.S. President and Hailey’s Comet made a rare appearance in the sky. That was also the year that Hyundai made its debut in the U.S. auto market with the inexpensive Excel, a little gas miser that had few frills. Now celebrating its 30th birthday in America, Hyundai has come a long way with 14 vehicles in its lineup and a strong position as the world’s fifth largest automaker. “Our vision for future mobility focuses on choice, with a variety of vehicle options – from our all new luxury brand Genesis to our advanced alternative-fuel vehicles like the all new IONIQ,” according to Hyundai North America CEO Dave Zuchowski. “We are challenging automotive paradigms to reflect customers’ varied lifestyles, without compromising on design, safety, technology or driving enjoyment.” See the complete Hyundai lineup at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Anticipating Needs Driving Future of Mobility

It used to be enough for an automaker to build a dependable car with styling and features geared toward consumer desires. With the auto industry racing to solve the personal mobility crisis of the upcoming decades, that is no longer enough. The Genesis luxury line is geared around human-focused innovation that will meet the needs of future drivers. By creating cars with balanced performance that maintain an athletic elegance while still providing technology that helps move people from point A to point B, the new Genesis lineup is on the cutting edge of solving transportation problems.

IONIQ Offers Three Different Powertrains

Whether you’re more partial to pure electric, plug-in hybrid or strict hybrid powertrains, the new Hyundai IONIQ lineup has you covered. The first available version will be the IONIQ hybrid. A new 1.6-liter engine delivers the highest thermal efficiency in the world, resulting in outstanding gas mileage. Hyundai has developed a lithium-ion polymer battery that promises to set a new standard for charge and discharge performance. Check with Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to see when the new IONIQ will first appear in the showroom.

No Longer Just a Foreign Automaker

Thirty years ago, every Hyundai sold in America was imported. Now, more than 60 percent of all the cars the company sells in the U.S. are built on American soil. The Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama plant is the busiest manufacturing facility the company has, charged with the production of the Sonata and Elantra. The Santa Fe Sport will soon be added to the HMMA’s production line.

Sporty Sedan Delivers Family Fun

If you’re loathe to admit that life would be infinitely easier with two more doors, the Hyundai Genesis sports sedan lets you hang on to your wild side while providing a safe, comfortable ride for your family. “Motor Trend” magazine was so enthralled with the Genesis and its available all-wheel drive that it named the vehicle to its “All-Weather Family Car” list. Along with its sporty design, powerful engine and comfortable interior, the roomy 15.3 cubic foot trunk has plenty of room for groceries, soccer balls and anything else a family needs to move. Stop by Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale to see why the Genesis should be on your list of family car options.

Fluid Look Makes Genesis Appear More Expensive

The 2016 Hyundai Genesis has a beautiful design with classic lines that make it appear much more expensive than its starting $38,750 price tag. The Genesis comes with a 3.8-liter V6 engine that delivers a zippy 311 horsepower, but you can choose to move up to a V8 that pumps out 420 horses. The interior has a roomy 123 cubic feet with room for five adults. Choose the HTRAC all wheel drive with intelligent drive mode and the system continuously monitors road conditions and wheel slippage to automatically adjust acceleration, shift points and steering to help you stay on the road. You can choose from four different modes to save gas, have a more comfortable ride, unlock the vehicle’s aggression or stay in better control on ice and snow.

Safety Features Keep Precious Cargo Safe

Hyundai technology is not confined to power and comfort, the new Genesis is also on the cutting edge of automotive safety. Features such as rear cross-traffic alert, rearview camera, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking and lane keep assist all help avoid collisions and reduce the chance of injury should a wreck occur. Smart Cruise Control automatically adjusts your speed to keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. The Genesis is also the first rear-wheel drive midsize luxury sedan to be awarded a Top Safety Pick Plus from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Genesis Cockpit Engages All the Senses

The combination of wood trim, aluminum accents and leather all create a luxurious interior that makes comfort the top priority for each passenger. Heated front seats are standard, providing a warm welcome on those chilly winter nights. A power rear sunshade, side window shades and an available 17-speaker Lexicon surround sound stereo system all help set the Genesis apart from its competitors. It’s okay to let someone else drive your Genesis as the integrated memory brings your seat, steering wheel and mirrors back to your favorite position. If you’re looking for a comfortable ride for your family that still provides plenty of driving thrills, stop by Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale and take a test drive in the new Genesis.

2016 Tucson

Chosen for Design, Versatility and Value

Each year the Automobile Association of America designates “Top Pics” in its January-February issue of “Highroads” magazine. The new Hyundai Tucson captured the award this year in the small SUV classification, earning marks for value, design and versatility. “The 2016 Tucson represents a massive step forward for Hyundai in the small SUV category,” according to AAA writer Jim Prueter. “The car’s design is guaranteed to turn heads, and with a massive selection of standard equipment, the vehicle delivers excellent value to customers.” See why the Tucson is AAA’s top choice by taking a visit to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Athletic Exterior and Roomy, Sophisticated Interior Add to Appeal

The new Hyundai Tucson is a well-appointed combination of aggressive styling and a quiet, comfortable interior. The sloping nose, angular headlights and muscular stance announce its presence with authority, while the rich combination of high-end materials makes the interior as comfortable as a warm living room. The Tucson comes in four trim levels, starting at just $22,700 for the SE, which includes a great audio system with 5-inch color touchscreen. Move up to the Eco model and you get standard power windows and an 8-way power driver seat with lumbar support. The Sport model has heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, but it’s the Limited edition that really packs on the goodies. For less than $30,000, the premium Tucson comes with all the other listed features plus dual temperature control, power passenger seat, leather seats, premium instrument panel, Blue Link telematics, auto-dimming rear view mirror and an HD radio with multicasting.

Sport, Limited Come with Driver Assistance Features

Choose the Limited or Sport model of the 2016 Hyundai Tucson and you not only get more creature comforts, but more safety equipment as well. Blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist is standard on both models. The Limited offers optional safety help such as lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and rear parking sensors.

Tucson Comes With Industry-best Warranty

Chances are you’ll fall in love with the Tucson for its look, comfort and driving experience, but it doesn’t hurt to have the industry’s best warranty. The powertrain is warranted for 10 years or 100,000 miles. The 5-year/60,000 mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranty is 2 years and 24,000 miles longer than most new cars. A 5-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance guarantee provides peace of mind that you’re not on the road alone. Stop by Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale and give the new Tucson a once-over to see why AAA made it a Top Pick this year.
