First Drive: 2015 Hyundai Genesis

When it comes to the value equation, Hyundai usually have it spot in, be in the B or C segment of cars, Crossovers, or even Luxury.

Several years ago when Hyundai first introduced the Genesis sedan, most everyone was pretty skeptical that Hyundai, known up to that point a a pervader of cheep economy cars, could produce something worth worthwhile.  Turns out, it was a solid first effort, work to do, but solid.

With this next, all new generation of Genesis sedan, Hyundai have there eyes firmly on the prize, with their target set on Mercedes E-Class, Lexus ES and GS, Cadillac's new CTS, and also the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series.  Can they pull it off?  Can Hyundai build a car that can go toe to toe with the world best?

That's what we find out in this First Drive on Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive.

Reviewed 2013 Toyota Camry V6: The Sheeples Car! 

This is another review from 2013, that we were able to rescue from a memory card that went bad.  So, there is no driving footage, and the audio and video quality may not be the best.

The Toyota Camry is the best selling passenger car for well over a decade, the question we had going in is why.  There are a number of fantastic choices in the mid-sized family four door segment, cars such as the Kia Optima, Hyundai, Sonata, Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, Honda Accord and VW Passat. 
Is the Camry significantly better it's competitors or is it pure momentum that is the reason for the sales success? That is what we find out on this episode of Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive

Reviewed 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 

 

Another review of the fall of 2013 from our recovered videos, this time it's the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. 
With higher CAFE standards on the way, automakers are doing what ever they can to increase the MPG's of their fleets.  The Sonata Hybrid takes a solid mid sized family sedan and incorporates a good, though not great Hybrid system into it.
Does they Hybrid system take away from the Sonata, does it make it a better car?  That's what we find out on this episode of Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive.
