Hyundai FE Fuel Cell Concept is Inspired by Water at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

The 2017 Geneva Auto Show has traditionally been about performance and luxury.  At CardinaleWay Hyundai, we are excited that the FE Fuel Cell was presented at the auto show. The FE Fuel Cell concept is not Hyundai’s first foray into designing hydrogen-fueled cars. As recently as 2016, Hyundai was offering eco-friendly leases on a zero-emission Tucson Fuel Cell in certain parts of California and other markets. While the Tucson Fuel Cell could cover a maximum of 265 miles and hit 62 miles per hour in 12.5 seconds, the FE concept improves on one of those areas in a significant way.

Single Fill Fuel Cell Performance

The FE’s fuel cell stack is even more power dense than current designs and its hydrogen system is 20 percent lighter and 10 percent more efficient.  Due to this improvement, Hyundai claims this concept can cover 497 miles on a single fill of hydrogen. This results in almost twice the range of a Tucson Fuel Cell. A workable, wide-spread hydrogen infrastructure is still needed, but automakers are interested in exploring this kind of performance in hydrogen.

Integrated Charging Space

The Hyundai FE Fuel Cell has an integrated charging space for an electric scooter in the trunk.  The FE concept includes desirable portable battery packs that users can recharge in the vehicle plus use to charge their accessories.

Inspired by Water

In full auto show fashion, Hyundai described the design of the vehicle as “inspired by nature and water” with “flowing bodywork.”  The handsome style is inspiring future products from the Korean company, perhaps even a successor to the Tucson Fuel Cell.

Our Hyundai of Corona Family Promotes Teen Driving Safety

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

If your teen recently earned their driver’s license, they are probably enjoying some summer driving. At our Hyundai Dealership in Corona, CA, our CardinaleWay Hyundai Family recommends the following reminders to keep everyone safer on the road.

Seat Belts, Please

Seat belts are required by law to be worn by all passengers. This applies to California. Studies show that seat belts are extremely effective in protecting vehicle occupants. Remind your teen to buckle up. Ask them to make sure their passengers are always wearing a seat belt also.

Resist Distracted Driving

A phone call or text is not as important as keeping your eyes on the road. In a moving vehicle, things can change in a split second. If your teen’s attention is elsewhere, they will have no time to react to the driving situation. That could prove fatal.

Driving Is Fun – Speed Can Complicate It

Having the freedom of a vehicle, and perhaps peer pressure to “show off” driving, may tempt your teen to speed needlessly. Your teen is a new driver with developing reaction time. Remind them to follow the speed limit, and if they are not comfortable driving at highway speeds, take a different, slower route.

Weather And Road Conditions

As a new driver, your teen has not had experience across the seasons in various weather, nor in construction zones. Offer to accompany them when bad weather is predicted or happening. Point out safety tips if you’re driving with them in construction zones. It allows them to get more experience and gain confidence with an experienced driver in the vehicle.

Equip Your Vehicle With Safety Basics

A flashlight, jumper cables and a first-aid kit are good things to have in your vehicle no matter who is driving.

Choose The Right Vehicle For Your Teen To Drive

If you are about to allow your teen to drive an older vehicle, or are in the market for a used vehicle, our Hyundai of Corona Sales and Service Teams can help. Have your vehicle checked by our expert Service Team. Our Service Technicians will thoroughly inspect your vehicle and recommend any service needed. To ensure your vehicle is in its best operating condition be sure to schedule regular oil changes at your Hyundai Riverside CA. If you’re ready to get a used vehicle for your teen, visit our Sales Team to see our Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. You can also find our current inventory online at: www.cardinalewayhyundai.com. Help your teens become good drivers. Talk with them about these safety tips.

Road Tripping With Elders

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

At our Hyundai California dealer, Hyundai of Corona, we love to hit the open road.  Everyone gives you tips for tripping with the kiddos but what about when grandma and grandpa are along for the ride?  We thought you would find these tips of use should you find yourself going on a road trip with elders family members.

Consult with a Doctor for Approval To Travel

This is THE most important step to take prior to taking off with an elderly passenger onboard.  Make sure the destination is appropriate given any limitations your older rider may have.

Research Medical Facilities In Advance

Make sure you know where the nearest hospitals and care centers are should an emergency arise.

Prepare Documentation and Identification

Ensure travel documentation is in order: a passport or driver’s license, medical documentation like Medicare and insurance cards (and photocopies) and prescriptions or physician’s statements. Consider wearable identification for loved ones who are living with dementia.

Maintain a Predictable Daily Routine And Schedule

A predictable schedule is critical to reducing stress and anxiety in an elder.  If they have Alzheimer’s this is especially important.  Keep mealtimes, medication schedules and rest times consistent. This will lower the risk of agitation.  Travel when they are most likely to do well. That way everyone will have a great experience.

Hyundai Riverside CA Wants Everyone To Enjoy The Ride

We know travelling with your older family members can be challenging but also rewarding.  At Hyundai of Corona, we understand that a comfortable ride is very important.

The Psychology Of Color: CardinaleWay Hyundai of Corona Explains Why Color Is Important When Buying A Car

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

If you ever wondered if color of a car makes any difference, #CardinaleWayHyundai in Corona, CA is here to inform you that yes, color matters.  Automakers have known for years that there’s psychology involved when it comes to selecting vehicle colors.  Take a look at the vehicles passing you by on the freeway and take stock of the most popular colors you see.

Consumers Drive The Market For Colors
It comes as no surprise that consumers are the driving force behind the colors that we see on car dealership lots.  According to Kelley Blue Book, the most popular color choices among consumers determine colors churned out by the auto manufacturers.  Right now, silver leads the way among all vehicles for the most popular color choice, followed by white and then black.  Further, Kelley Blue Book reveals that if consumers are unable to acquire a car in their color of choice, “39 percent of consumers were likely to change brands if they couldn’t get the color they wanted.”

Choice Of Color Can Affect Your Vehicle’s Resale Value
It may be hard to believe, but the color of your vehicle can actually affect its resale value.  For instance, if your car’s color is among the most popular, chances are you’ll be able to sell your vehicle faster and at a good, fair price.  However, if your car is purple, lime green, orange or some other bright or odd color, these less popular colors may cause your vehicle’s value to depreciate even more.

Other Ways In Which The Color Of Your Car Matters
Contrary to popular myth, it does not cost more to insure a red car than a black car.  However, it may cost more to buy a red car than a black vehicle.  That’s because red or other bright colors cost more to make and purchase, and often require a special finishing to keep from fading.  Thieves are most likely to target cars that are silver, white, black, gold and green.  Apparently, they like the same top three colors that the general population does!  Finally, people generally believe that red cars get pulled over most often for speeding tickets.  Surprisingly, the color red placed second — the car colors most pulled over by cops were white, red, grey and silver.

Swing By Hyundai of Corona To Look At Our Colorful Lot
It would appear that selecting a car color that is silver, white, black or even gray is your best bet for resale value.  However, if you want to be bold and stand out in a sleek sedan, like the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, by all means go red!  Stop by and see us at Hyundai Riverside CA, and let us show you our colorful dealership lot.  We’ve got a great selection of the latest Hyundai models and Certified Pre-owned vehicles.  Be sure to check out our user-friendly website at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com for a complete listing of our inventory.  Next time you are in the market for a new vehicle, don’t forget to consider the psychology of color!
