Glimpse at the Hyundai vehicles & see why they received Good Design Awards!

The Good Design Awards are an annual program in which the Chicago Atheneum: Museum of Architecture and Design, in addition to the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, recognize excellence in design in a variety of areas. For the 2015 ceremony, the panel of judges awarded Hyundai Motors with five Good Design Awards, marking the company’s consistent quality of design.

The four vehicles recognized by the awards include the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq hybrid and electric vehicle, the Tucson SUV, all-new Elantra compact car, and the Santa Cruz concept debuted at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The fifth award earned by Hyundai was in recognition of the company’s “Sculpture in Motion” art installation.

Byung-Seob Lee, Hyundai Motors’ senior vice president and head of the Hyundai Design Center, commented, “Being recognised as five-time winners in the Good Design Awards strengthens Hyundai Motor’s position as an automotive design leader.”

Thousands of international brands, manufacturers, and firms were evaluated by the awards program’s jury of architects, cultural leaders, designers, and experts across several different markets and industries. However, Hyundai Motors stood out from the competition by securing five Good Design Awards, attesting to the company’s skillful development and application of unique design philosophies.

700+ Horsepower Hyundai Tucson Prepped for SEMA Show in Las Vegas

Read about the Hyundai Tucson at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas! (2014 Model pictured)

Following its annual tradition of coming to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas with a tuned Hyundai, Bisimoto has unveiled its latest creation: a 700+ horsepower 2016 Hyundai Tucson. It’s the crossover to end all crossovers—and the craziest part is that the ridiculous power figure comes from the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder you can find in the stock Tucson at Rex Perry Hyundai!

The engine did receive extensive modifications, of course. Bisimoto added a turbocharger as well as a special ECU, and strengthened all the internals to ensure the engine could take the added stress. The group also added a six-speed manual (you know, just to spice up the driving fun) and ensured that the crossover’s newfound performance was reflected in its looks.

The Bisimoto Tucson features a much larger front grille—to provide more air to the equally colossal intercooler—as well as 19-inch wheels with R-compound tires, four-corner air suspension, a four-point roll cage, and a racing seat. We’ll get even more details—like whether it is front or all-wheel drive—at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas!
