The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric: Ranked Most Efficient EV on the Market

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Hyundai’s all-new Ioniq at Hyundai Riverside in Corona has officially been classified by the EPA as the most efficient electric vehicle on the market.  The Ioniq received a rating of 25 kWh used per 100 miles driven. The lower the kWh number, the more efficient. That rating translates to 136 miles per gallon equivalent. You can drive the Ioniq on a single charge farther than most rival EVs.  This model boasts 124 miles of driving range on a fully charged battery.

Spacious and Efficient

The Ioniq’s distinguishing feature is its desirable space efficiency. The Ioniq Electric is a prime example of how hatchback models are wonderfully space-efficient vehicles. The Ioniq features 23.8 cubic feet of space making it the most voluminous trunk in the EV category.

This model’s lithium-ion battery pack is mounted beneath the rear seats.  This placement frees up space for an ample amount of cargo room and helps keep its weight low to the ground. The Ioniq is also one of the more affordable EVs in the market making it a solid value. All of these points make the Ioniq Electric both a smart and green vehicle pick.

Hyundai EV Affordability

The Hyundai Ioniq Electric is one of the more affordable electric vehicles in its class based on MSRP. Don’t forget to factor in possible federal tax credits and rebates.  These incentives help the Ioniq Electric’s bottom line drop even more making it accessible for many buyers who might not have considered an EV previously. The Limited trim features rear cross-traffic alert features and blind-spot monitoring.

Are You Street Sign Smart?

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017


One of the most essential parts of driving safely is being able to decipher street signs, and doing it quickly. Hyundai of Corona took a quiz recently and we thought our Hyundai California family in Corona, CA should too. Do you know what an orange road sign means? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who doesn’t know! Signs can be a little confusing and it can be dangerous to yourself and others on the road if you’re unaware. Ready, set, go! But no peeking at the answers before you’re finished.

Take The Test:

  1. Which color sign designates temporary conditions such as reduced speed limits, detours or road work?
  2. A blue sign on a highway gives Hyundai Riverside what information?
  3. What does a yellow diamond with an arrow bent, pointing to the right mean?
  4. What does a red octagon with STOP written in white mean?
  5. If you see a yellow diamond with a black vehicle and squiggly lines behind, what does that mean?
  6. Which sign shape means you are entering a school zone?
  7. True or False: It’s okay to accelerate when you see a speed limit sign up ahead.


Know What’s Right:

  1. Orange you glad you picked the right color?!
  2. Colors of signs always mean something. Blue signs are for services, not warnings. They typically point out hospitals or gas stations, indicate tourist info or inform drivers of evacuation routes.
  3. A yellow sign means warning, such as road conditions ahead, dangers or potential machinery and animal crossings. This sign with a bent arrow means slow down, as you are approaching a sharp right turn.
  4. State laws say that if there is a white line, or before an intersection if no line, you must not roll or pause but come to a complete stop.
  5. This is a warning sign letting you know the roads are slippery when wet.
  6. A pentagon-shaped street sign means there’s an upcoming school zone, so be aware of children and slow down. There are often blinking yellow lights as well. This means you are to reduce your speed until outside of the zone.
  7. Speeds do not change until you are actually at the location of the sign so don’t speed up prior or you might find yourself with a speeding ticket. Don’t worry, Hyundai of Corona got this one wrong, too.

Did You Score Better Than Hyundai Riverside?

We didn’t get 100% on the test but that’s why we took it! It’s always best to brush up on your skills, especially when it comes to driving. Safety is, after all, Hyundai of Corona’s number one priority. See what else we care about at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com. We’re the best among Corona car dealers!

2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid : Go Green at Hyundai of Corona

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

 

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is the fuel-efficient counterpart to the  standard Sonata sedan at CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona, CA. It delivers a long list of standard features, the same smooth ride plus a comfortable and spacious interior.  The Sonata Hybrid takes fuel efficiency further than its Sonata counterpart with a hybrid powertrain rated for 40-plus mpg. This Sonata model is a well-rounded and affordable hybrid sedan.

The Sonata Hybrid Overview

The 2017 model is the second year of the new generation Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. This vehicle features a roomier interior and more traditional styling of the recently redesigned regular Sonata and has a sturdy platform. This model boasts an environmentally friendly, new hybrid powertrain for enhanced fuel economy. Hyundai includes a long list of features with this year’s model, including a new 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen display standard on all models plus audio, entertainment and telematics upgrades. There is also an optional 8-inch touchscreen available.

Fantastic Fuel Economy

The Sonata Hybrid’s primary appeal is its fantastic fuel economy. Design features to reduce the Sonata Hybrid’s fuel consumption include active air shutters behind the grille, special alloy wheels and a streamlined tail.  These changes enable the base Sonata Hybrid SE to return an EPA-estimated 42 mpg. The Sonata Hybrid provides you with the same sought-after advantages of the standard Sonata including a roomy interior, a smooth ride plus a green-car solid value. The cargo space is generous in this hybrid, a feature that usually forgoes the trunk area to accommodate battery packaging.

Come to Hyundai Riverside CA

Stop by our Hyundai Orange County dealership  today and test drive a 2017 Sonata Hybrid. If you are in the market for another model, we also have an extensive inventory of other new and certified pre-owned Hyundai vehicles.

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. If you need additional accessories to outfit your car, check out our genuine  Hyundai dealer auto parts.  Don’t forget to stop in for your oil change Corona CA before your trip. Visit us online at www.cardinalewayhyundai.com or stop by and let us help you prep for a trip of a lifetime.

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!

Hyundai Achieved Its Best Ranking Ever: J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Hyundai is pleased to announce dramatic improvement in the 2017 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS). Our reduction in issues reported by vehicle owners, ranked Hyundai sixth among all nameplates. Hyundai moved up 13 rank positions in the prestigious nameplate rankings compared to 2016, marking our company’s best ranking ever. At CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona, we’re excited about this achievement.

Barry Ratzlaff, vice president, customer satisfaction of Hyundai Motor America shared, “Hyundai’s dedication to product quality is a foundational part of our overall strategy. The Vehicle Dependability Study ranking demonstrates our continuous effort to be better.” He went on to say, “Quality is a priority for our customers, and we’re constantly trying to improve the indicators measured by the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS) rankings, in turn improving long-term dependability.”

In the Midsize Car segment, the stylish #HyundaiSonata was recognized by J.D. Power as the second place vehicle. Hyundai achieved these exceptional results while the industry average increased by four problems per 100 vehicles.

The Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) and Initial Quality Study (IQS) are two of J.D. Power key quality studies. The VDS measures problems of three-year-old vehicles, primarily in categories across  Audio/Communication/Entertainment/Navigation and engine/transmission and driving experience. A lower score indicates a higher quality. The IQS measures quality and assesses their studies after 90 days of vehicle ownership.

To measure customer perception on the design, layout, content, and performance of new vehicles, the Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study is used. The Tech-Experience Index Study is new and measures the customer experience overall with vehicle technology.

CardinaleWay Hyundai’s All New Elantra

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is an attractive compact sedan with a strong value proposition and impressive quality credentials at #CardinaleWayHyundai in Corona. The 2017 Elantra boasts new sheetmetal and the body is a bit larger than the previous generation all on top of a revised chassis. Its most impressive upgrade is structural. Thanks to a higher percentage of high strength steel and increased use of structural adhesive, this sedan includes 394 feet of industrial glue, making the new unitbody 30 percent stiffer. There’s something exciting and new under the hood as well, specifically, one new transmission and two new engines.  The sixth-generation Elantra comes standard with a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder, available with either a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. The Elantra’s interior and cargo volume figures place this vehicle within the EPA’s midsize bracket. With that comes midsize feature offerings, including a few items no other “compact” vehicle offers.

Improved Fuel Efficiency

The EPA-estimated fuel economy comes in at 26/36 mpg City/Highway for the Elantra SE with manual transmission and an efficient 29/38 mpg with the automatic.  This fuel efficiency is an improvement of several miles per gallon over previous Elantra models.

More Options Than Ever

The 2017 Elantra also offers drivers more options than ever before.  Hyundai is offering the beautiful 2017 Elantra SE with top-of-the-line Limited trims. The SE offers a Popular Equipment Package that includes a seven-inch touchscreen head unit with Android Auto plus Apple CarPlay functionality.  It also features Bluetooth, a rearview camera, automatic headlamps, audio controls on the steering wheel and heated side mirrors.  This stylish sedan includes 16-inch wheels and a hood insulator to keep the engine noise quiet and the ride smooth.

An SE tech package adds sought after features like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist and adaptive cruise control are optional.
