looks nice, kills petrol

It’s a looker, but in petrol form not a dynamo driver. If you want a mid-sized family wagon that isn’t styled for the bowling club, the fit-out and packaging make it worth a test drive. But if you want more dash for your cash, your time is better spent testing the diesel.
smooth sleek look
not very efficient

Questions & Answers

2017 VF Wagon, 2 liter engine, has a very noticeable groan in the front end, especially whilst steering or mild acceleration. Dealer had car for 3 days & achieved nothing. Local mechanic suspects sub frame mounts worn. 25k's on car, steering wheel leather is cracking & peeling.

Is the 2L petrol engine powerful enough for family life?
Realistically we don't do 4 + luggage road trips very often, and don't tow trailers very often either. How do you find the power of the 2 litre petrol engine for everyday driving?
I've previously owned a 1999 Volvo V70 wagon with 2.5L 5 cylinder engine and that was *adequate* at best, but I'm aware that modern 4 cylinder engines are much smoother and powerful than engines from the 90s/noughties.

The engine is suitable for everday life.Handles city and country driving with ease. Quite quick off the mark at stop lights if that's your thing.

I agree with the above, very surprising performance, engine revs to red line very willingly. Engage "sport" mode on transmission,very quick indeed.

What do you do when your car key battery is flat. Can I change myself or do I need to come into a Service Centre?

Should be able to change it yourself, if not take it to where you bought it. If it's not a Hyundai dealer just go into one because they would know the most about them ✌

Just did it myself a couple of says ago. There are a number of youtube videos on it. But is really straight forward. I was quoted $60 by the dealer where I bought my car. $10 to do it myself. The codes didn't reset (I don't think do unless you leave it without battery for a long period of time).

Hope that helps.
