Kia got the Stinger but Hyundai got the i30N so who’s the winner in this family feud? Neither, they both did well in the race for pace with the Stinger appealing to a completely different audience to the i30N. Having driven both, I’d gladly have either. The twin turbo, rear wheel drive, V6 Stinger is a GT style ‘sedan’ [...]

But the sedan format does have merit especially if you don’t necessarily want to drive around in a practical box, preferring something a little sleeker. Apart from being a good looker, Hyundai’s latest Sonata (aka [...]

The i30’s cauldron has brand new ingredients cleverly blended with a touch of old. They’ve even tweaked the recipe racing-style, and called it “N”, as if it sits [...]
