Once considered an also-ran among mainstream auto brands, a recent product revolution has transformed Hyundai into a growing success story. Read on to learn more more about all of the new Hyundai cars and SUVs, as well as updates to existing models.
2013 Hyundai Accent
Hyundai's entry-level model gains new standard features for 2013, including air conditioning, power heated mirrors, keyless entry and a USB port. SE models also gain standard mirror-mounted turn signals.
2013 Hyundai Azera
Although Hyundai hasn't yet revealed changes to the upscale Azera sedan for 2013, we'd be surprised to see many updates after last year's full redesign.
2013 Hyundai Elantra
The Elantra adds two new body styles for 2013: a five-door hatchback dubbed the Elantra GT, and a two-door coupe offered in GS or SE trims. The Elantra GLS also gains standard air conditioning, cruise control and 16-inch wheels for the new model year.
2013 Hyundai Equus
The full-size Equus luxury sedan enters 2013 with no major changes.
2013 Hyundai Genesis
While the Genesis sedan is mostly unchanged, last year's 4.6-liter V8 engine is gone, leaving only the 3.8-liter V6 and 5.0-liter V8. The Genesis is also now available with Hyundai's Blue Link infotainment system.
2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
In addition to revised front end styling, a refreshed interior and a new 8-speed automatic transmission option, the Genesis Coupe also gets more power for 2013. Four-cylinder models now have 274 horsepower, up from 210, while the V6 jumps from 306 hp to 348.
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe
Hyundai's midsize Santa Fe crossover is fully redesigned for 2013, offering two body styles: a 5-passenger Santa Fe Sport and a long-wheelbase 7-passenger variant simply called Santa Fe. Sport models come with a choice of 4-cylinder engines, while the Santa Fe uses a 290-hp 3.3-liter V6. Hyundai's Blue Link infotainment is standard, while new options include heated rear seats and a panoramic sunroof.
2013 Hyundai Sonata
The Sonata loses its standard 6-speed manual for 2013, leaving a 6-speed automatic as the sole transmission. Other changes are minor, but they include the addition of heated seats to all models except the base-level Sonata GLS, and a newly available panoramic sunroof for the Sonata Limited.
2013 Hyundai Tucson
Following a recent redesign, the Tucson receives only minor changes for 2013, including newly standard keyless access and push-button start for the upscale Limited model.
2013 Hyundai Veloster
While the standard Veloster is unchanged, the 3-door hatchback's lineup gets a new turbocharged version for 2013. The Veloster Turbo offers a 201-hp 4-cylinder, more muscular styling, 18-inch alloy wheels and heated leather seats.
