Hyundai Has The Most Popular Super Bowl Commercial

Superbowl

It might be difficult to judge what the most popular Super Bowl commercial was. One good measure might be counting the number of folks who go over to Youtube to rewatch the commercial. If we do indeed use that yardstick, then the most popular Super Bowl commercial would Hyundai’s “The Chase.”

It’s not hard to see why this spot quickly became so popular. First of all, the commercial is shot just as well as any box-office thriller. We see two young hikers desperately running through the forest. The camera cuts between one hiker, who has tripped over some brush, to the bears chasing them. These hikers have pissed off some seriously big and angry bears!

What the bear doesn’t know is that one of the hikers holds a trump card. It’s a smart watch! He speaks to the one of the apps, “Start my car!” and we see his 2017 Hyundai Elantra light up with life!

Remote Start is just one of the awesome technologies that Hyundai has developed. It’s great for warming or cooling your car in extreme weather (and getting away from bears).

Contact us when you are interested in learning more about the 2017 Hyundai Elantra! Until then, schedule your opportunity to test drive the 2016 Elantra!

Key Details Announced for Upcoming Hyundai Super Bowl Commercials

2017 Hyundai Elantra Super Bowl 50

Football season is almost over, and you know what that means: It’s about time to start obsessing over Super Bowl commercials. Hyundai recently revealed some key elements about their upcoming advertisements, which look seriously promising.

For one thing, they’ve got seriously big names attached to direct the ads, including Peter Berg – director of “Lone Survivor” and “Collateral.” Why such a gritty filmmaker, Hyundai? We will have to see.

We also know that the ads will prominently display the luxurious Genesis model as well as the 2017 Elantra, which is particularly exciting. The Elantra hasn’t been seen by a lot of folks, but that’s sure to change after the Super Bowl.

Whether or not any of these Hyundai ads will become “that Super Bowl ad” that everyone talks about for weeks after the big game, we will have to wait and see.

In the meantime, while we wait for the Hyundai Super Bowl commercials, come make predictions here with us at Joe Holland Hyundai!

Keep These Tips for Driving in Snow in Mind This Winter Season

So when you first hit the road, it was all clear – but now, you realize that snow is slowly starting to fall all around you, sticking to the road and causing you to worry. Before you find yourself in this situation, check out these tips for driving in snow:Tips for Driving in Snow

  • If snow starts to accumulate, the first thing you need to do is slow down and be wary of black ice, which forms quickly.
  • Maintain a slower speed that is much lower than the speed limit, and avoid any vehicles that appear to be going faster.
  • In general, increase the distance between your car and the cars around you. If someone has to stop quickly, you’ll be glad you left additional room.
  • Reduce any distractions such as music or a navigation system. The time for any distraction is not now.
  • Lastly, keep your cool, and try not to make any sharp turns or brake quickly, which can cause you to lose control.

Be safe this year, and for more winter weather advice such as tips for driving in snow, visit us at Joe Holland Hyundai.

Follow These Holiday Decoration Safety Tips This Festive Season

Holiday Decoration Safety Tips

Each year, many more accidents are caused by holiday decoration related hazards than one might image. To keep your home and family safe, be sure to check out these holiday decoration safety tips:

  • Though many artificial trees are fire-resistant, plenty are not. And, of course, real trees are highly flammable—be sure to keep your tree away from the fireplace.
  • Keep your real tree hydrated throughout the season, as a dry tree is much more likely to catch fire.
  • Double check your lights from last year, and throw away any lights that appear to have significant damage, especially if they have frayed wires.
  • Keep any holiday candles on a secure base so that they are much less likely to get knocked over.
  • And lastly, when using a ladder to decorate outside, always have a spotter to watch out for you!

Drive the i30 N on Highland Scenic Highway’s New Tour

Hyundai has been hyping up their new N sub-brand, which will focus on a lineup of athletic performance cars. The company recently released a teaser for the new Hyundai i30 N sports car, showcasing the vehicle being test-driven at the Nurburgring track alongside the announcement that the production model will come with all-wheel-drive and the Theta 2.0-liter turbo engine.

Coincidentally, the beautiful Highland Scenic Highway has been given a new self-guided tour for drivers in the area.

Designed and put together by Terry Hackney, whose Lens Creek Studios are located in the nearby Fort Ashby, this tour features five informational kiosks and seventy-six interpretive markers along the highway that indicate points of interest to passersby. In addition, Hackney has made an audio disc titled “43 Miles of Discovery” than can be played at eighteen different points of interest along the Highland Scenic Highway by drivers taking the self-guided tour.

Once Hyundai’s i30 N is available to the public, the Highland Scenic Highway would be an ideal location for a day trip – imagine cruising in the powerful sports car and listening to fascinating information on the area’s history, geology, and biology as you pass through this heavily forested area. The entire highway is devoid of billboards or any other marker of civilization, making it the perfect place to get away for a bit.

Hyundai Tucson Adventuremobile Debuts at SEMA

2016 Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai showed off a new concept vehicle based on the 2016 Hyundai Tucson at the recent SEMA show. The Hyundai Tucson Adventuremobile, as it has been named, has been modified through Hyundai’s collaboration with Southern California customizer John Pangilinan to be prepped for off-roading capability.

Designed for use as a practical, everyday commuting vehicle during the week and outdoor adventuring on the weekends, the Adventuremobile comes in an army-green shade that distinctly recalls the feel of vintage all-terrain recon vehicles and is equipped with a 1.5-inch suspension lift and 17-inch wheels. LED lighting and roof-rack mounts and bars that come with a roof-mounted tent increase the outdoorsy practicality of the modified Tucson.

The Hyundai Tucson Adventuremobile also sports an upgraded engine, interior, sound system, and brakes. The custom job was a unique look at the Tucson, its personalization options, and the vehicle’s versatility, in line with the overall spirit of the SEMA show, which focuses on creativity and accessorizing instead of just showing off standard models.

SEMA-Bound Veloster Turbo Will Knock Your Socks Off

Blood Type Racing (BTR), a Chicago-based tuner known best for its extreme enhancements to Korean vehicles, has previewed its Veloster Turbo R-Spec built just for SEMA. Although the SEMA-bound Veloster Turbo won’t be officially revealed until Hyundai’s SEMA press conference on November 3rd, BTR and Hyundai have revealed a very sinister-looking drawing of the sports car.

On the outside, BTR gave the Veloster Turbo a “Carbon Black” paint job with a red racing strip from the front splitter onto the hood. They then added a carbon fiber wide-body kit for a more masculine, aggressive stance, a rear deck spoiler, and front-mounted aero canards.

The Veloster Turbo is powered by a stock Hyundai-sourced 1.6-liter turbo four, and BTR added high-boost turbocharger manufactured by Garrett, new cylinder sleeves, custom connecting rods and pistons, and a custom-designed intake manifold. The result is a 500-horsepower spit-fire.

Though we haven’t yet seen the inside, we assume this Veloster Turbo is just as decked out and sinister inside as it is outside.

“The focus of this build was to boost the performance capabilities of the Veloster R-Spec while creating one of the angriest-looking Hyundai vehicles to chew up the pavement,” said Sam Lee, Director of Marketing, Blood Type Racing, Inc. in a statement.

Here at Joe Holland Hyundai, we’ll be staying tuned for the official reveal of this aggressive-looking Hyundai Veloster. Check back for more updates after November 3rd!

How to Get Your Vehicle to 200,000 Miles

How to get your car past 200,000 miles

Today’s vehicles are built to last. While we once aimed to keep our cars running to the 100,000-mile mark, we can (and should) expect more from today’s vehicles. Quality materials, improved technology, and resilient designs all play a role in keeping our cars going for longer. Here are three ways you can help your new car get to 200,000 miles and beyond.

  1. Preventative maintenance is key. The most important thing you can do to keep your car running at its best for years to come is to stay up-to-date on service. Oil changes, filter replacements, fluid top-offs, alignments, and tire rotations are just a few maintenance items that will keep your car running at its most efficient.
  2. Keep it clean. Make sure to wash your car regularly, and properly maintain the interior materials. Doing so will keep the exterior paint in tip-top shape, and keep the interior from prematurely wearing or fading. Also clean out built up dirt and leaves under the hood, and clean out sludge and grime from the engine compartment.
  3. Don’t ignore issues. If something isn’t working correctly, or you notice something doesn’t seem right (including any illuminated dashboard lights), have it looked at right away. Doing so will help you to avoid additional damage, and allow your car to continue to function at its best.

Here are even more ideas on how to get your vehicle to 200,000 miles.
