Hyundai Veloster changing the rules

THE 2017 Hyundai Veloster is a mix of sportiness and practicality. But yet, somehow, it manages to be its own thing.

On the outside, the Veloster is able to pull off the unusual paradox of being non-descript and eye-catching. At first, its sloping roofline says coupe; however, the rapid transition to the trunk screams hatchback, which it is. Then comes the next step that would have everyone doing a double take.

Hatchbacks are traditionally classified as either three door (passenger, driver side and trunk) or 5 door — passenger, driver side, two matching rears, and trunk. Yet, the Hyundai bucks the standard vehicular symmetrical design trend for what is ultimately the Veloster’s ‘killer app’. It’s a four-door hatchback.

Magna Motors hailed for most improved market for service in Latin America

Hyundai Motor Company, Miami, has hailed Magna Motors Dealership Limited as the most improved market for service in the Latin America region for 2016.

The recognition is based on Magna Motors’ After Sales performance in the categories of customer satisfaction, parts performance, training certification and collaboration; and puts Magna Motors on the leader board among 41 countries of the region in just its first full year of operations.

Elis Jimenez, After Sales Manager, Magna Motors Dealership Limited, said he is delighted that the team’s work has been recognized. "We are happy with the recognition as our team of Hyundai-certified technicians work meticulously to uphold the standards of the global Hyundai brand. Our job is to satisfy our customers and this award has proved just that,” he said. Jimenez added, “Our mission is to have devoted customers and that means delivering first class service every time. We will continue to embrace that philosophy for 2017 and the coming years.”

You can now control your Hyundai through Google Home

Hyundai’s Blue Link service, in addition to offering automatic emergency support, lets owners control various aspects of their cars remotely through a connected smartphone, Apple Watch, or Android Wear device. At CES 2017, the car company announced a new partnership with Google to add voice control for your car through the Google Home.

That means that various Blue Link remote access functions like starting your car or unlocking the doors can be controlled simply by talking to your Google Home. Additionally, Blue Link supports Google Maps, so Home can look up addresses using Google’s mapping data, deliver the results, and send directions straight to your car all through voice control.

None of this is exactly new, per say — Hyundai’s offered similar support through smartphones and smartwatches for a while, and we’ve even seen an Alexa-controlled Tesla hack. That said, Hyundai’s implementation is one of the first official integrations for controlling a car with a digital home assistant. Additionally, Hyundai claims that it’ll be adding more features before it launches the Action for Google Home, but currently isn’t offering an estimate as to when it will be available.
