How Reliable Are Hyundai Cars?

Hyundai has been around for nearly three decades in India and has amassed a reputation for being synonymous with reliability. Products like the Santro and Accent in the initial years helped the manufacturer strike a chord with the buyers especially in the budget space, the toughest segment to crack.  It has been an arch-rival of Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest car manufacturer, and when it comes to sales, Hyundai clocked its highest-ever sales in FY24 with over 7.7 lakh units sold. These numbers are a testament to how much Indians love the brand and favour their cars.  Measuring Reliability Of course, there are other factors like affordability and accessibility of spare parts, we at CarLelo believe that reliability can be one thing on paper but for a real picture, it is the buyers who should always turn to. Notably, most sales for Hyundai come from hatchbacks and SUVs ranging in the Rs. 6 lakh to Rs. 21 lakh bracket.

Hyundai car buyers have often reported high mileage numbers coupled with decent performance. Cars like the Grand i10 NIOS promise a fuel efficiency of 16 kilometres per litre.  Then comes the average repair cost of their cars. As the second-largest car brand in India, Hyundai has aggressively priced their spare parts due to high competition from Maruti Suzuki. Yes, some may find the parts priced at a premium, however, you need to understand that OEMs put a lot of research and development behind them. Next up is safety and Hyundai has been in the news for its strong build quality. Verna scored 5 stars in the GNCAP. Six airbags have been made standard in all cars from the brand, even the Grand i10 hatchback. This shows how committed Hyundai is in terms of safety. Finally, the ownership cost of a Hyundai car is affordable and comes with a lot of premiumness. This is something that sets the Korean brand apart from its competitors as Hyundai has time and again shown how good quality can be achieved at smart prices. Read Also: Your Guide to Choosing the Right Hyundai Car Some of the Most Reliable Hyundai Cars Here are the key car models from Hyundai that are famous for their reliability. Santro The Santro marked Hyundai’s debut in India and has been a runaway success. Back in the day when it was in production, it had the Maruti 800 and Alto as competitors. On the inside the five-seater hatchback was spacious and felt like a class above. It was a bold move to target the budget segment with the Hyundai Santro but it went on to impress with its fuel-efficient engine that could take on any road. You may still find some plying on the roads to this day and is still popular in the after-sales market.  Grand i10 What started with the i10 culminated in the Hyundai Grand i10 about a decade back. Maruti’s segment-leading Swift saw some serious competition after the Getz which dented its sales a lot. The current Grand i10 NIOS continues to be equipped with a 1.2-litre petrol engine and has been a workhorse. Though it was positioned one step up from the budget hatchback segment, the Grand i10 felt rich and had everything right going for itself from the exterior styling to the technology-packed interior. To this day, the car retains the Kappa petrol engine that it was launched with, implying the potency of the motor. i20 Next up, the Hyundai i20 is another extremely successful product from the house of Hyundai and rivals against the likes of Tata Altroz and Suzuki Baleno. With a similar tried-and-tested engine to the Grand i10, its younger sibling, durability with the hatchback was never an issue. The introduction of BS6 has watered down the motor’s urgency feel for sure but Hyundai has not compromised at all on the never-break-down philosophy. i20 diesel continued with the same legacy but had to be discontinued due to stricter emission norms. For the enthusiasts, the Koreans had to bring in the N Line, its performance-oriented division, to India.  Venue Hyundai Venue was an instant hit and even though customers had their reservations at first, the SUV did not disappoint a bit. Venue impresses with its blend of stylish looks and potent engines, including a diesel, all of which are easy on the pocket and fun to drive. If that wasn’t enough, the Venue gets a 1.5-litre diesel engine from the Creta that’s number one, fuel-efficient, number two, super punchy and at last, extremely durable.  You can run miles on this one while getting superior mileage and peace of mind. Though the 1.0-litre turbo may not be as popular as the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol, Hyundai made sure that the added components don’t weaken the sub-four metre SUV’s reliance. Creta The final nameplate in this list has to be the Hyundai Creta. In the compact SUV space, the Creta has been an undisputed leader and is among the pioneers who popularised the section. Even in its pre-facelift avatar, the Creta’s sales were not affected when major manufacturers like Maruti, Tata and Volkswagen were constantly refreshing their SUV lineup. It gets three powertrain options: Two 1.5-litre engines including a turbocharged one and a diesel. No matter which engine you choose, the Creta offers great performance and is heavy-duty.

Yes, Hyundai cars are good for the long run and can be purchased if you want to run the car for 8-10 years without much trouble. Q3. Is Hyundai More Reliable Than Honda? Both Honda and Hyundai are superb in terms of reliability and they cannot be compared. Read Also: Why is the Hyundai Creta So Popular in India?

 What is RPM in Car & Its Importance

What is RPM in Car & Its Importance

Revolutions per minute or RPM simply refers to the number of times a car engine’s crankshaft turns in a minute. The same can be observed in the RPM metre usually housed in the driver’s instrument cluster beside the speedometer. It is very important to understand RPM to strike the right balance between engine performance and fuel efficiency. Read along to learn about the significance of RPM in cars.  Working of RPM in a Car Engine To better understand the concept of RPM, let us take the example of an internal combustion engine. We all know that the engine runs on a mixture of air and fuel and this mixture enters the motor when the driver accelerates, ultimately leading to the opening of inlet valves. The more the acceleration, the higher the revolutions of the crankshaft, causing high RPM. This also results in increased fuel consumption.  It is to be noted that the peak power and torque figures need not come at the end of the RPM range. Car manufacturers always make it a point to disclose when an engine’s peak horsepower and torque are achieved in the rev band. If a car’s engine is revving at 3x1,000 rpm, it implies that the crankshaft is rotating 3,000 times in a minute.  Turbocharged Engines have a habit of spooling up at a certain rpm producing an instant rush of torque. If you have a turbocharged car, you can learn about the peak rev band in the car’s manual. This happens because turbochargers let in extra air once they are awakened by the combustion gases. Also Read: Best Panoramic Sunroof Cars in India (Updated 2024) Making the Best Use of RPM An engine running on high RPMs will have high noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels and generate a lot of heat as well, resulting in engine wear and tear and high maintenance costs. Daily driver cars are not designed for revving high for long periods as it hampers the car’s mileage.  A good rev band for extracting the best mileage out of your car is from 1,500 to 2,000 rpm. However, you may need to rev or accelerate beyond the above range depending on the road conditions, including an incline or offroad. Another factor to consider is that in petrol cars, driving in higher gears (5th or 6th gear) means you are going at a high speed but the same may not be the case with diesel cars. They can even run at a lower RPM of 2,000 at low speeds as they produce enough torque.  Monitor your RPM and Its Benefits Monitoring your car’s revolutions goes beyond extracting mileage and power. If you were to notice your RPM fluctuating at idle, it can be cause for concern and seeking a technician’s help can solve the problem. Common causes of irregular RPM are clogged carburettor, dirty air filter and faulty spark plugs. If not addressed at the earliest, it may cause a significant drop in the mileage and may result in other engine problems.  Also Read- What is a Turbo Engine in Cars & How it Works? FAQs Q1. What is a good RPM for a Car? It is ideal to drive your car at lower RPMs, usually in the range of 1,500 to 2,000 rpm. This results in lower fuel consumption and an increase in the mileage.  Q2. Do Automatic Cars have RPM? Yes, RPM is present in cars with automatic transmissions and it is adjusted according to the road conditions by the vehicle. Q3. What does 6,000 RPM Mean? A 6,000 RPM means that the engine’s crankshaft is rotating 6,000 times in a minute.

Hyundai Genesis Luxury Car Brand India debut in 2025

Korean car manufacturer Hyundai is planning to launch Genesis, its luxury car brand in India by the end of this year. Initially, two SUV models will be imported via the completely built-up (CBU) route and assembly will begin later in India, a media report stated. Rivals of Genesis include Audi, BMW and Mercedes. Hyundai Genesis lineup In the United States, Genesis sells a range of vehicle types, including sedans, SUVs and electric cars. For the Indian market, three SUVs namely the GV70, GV80 and GV90 are being considered for launch. The decision to enter the luxury car space has been taken and the company is now moving to the execution space, said sources. If reports are to be believed, Genesis would utilise its parent company’s Chennai plant for local assembly. Hyundai Genesis GV70 First up, the GV70 mid-size SUV has a coupe-like design and features 2.5-litre and 3.5-litre turbo petrol engines and a 2.2-litre diesel mill.

The mid-size crossover shares its underpinnings with the G80 sedan and a third row of seats is an optional add-on with the five-door SUV. Genesis GV80 starts at $59,000 (over Rs. 49 lakh) in the US and it would be interesting to see how the brand prices the car for the Indian market.  Hyundai Genesis GV90 Slated for a global launch in 2026, the GV90 is the biggest in the SUV lineup being planned for India. It is estimated that it would be offered in an electric avatar, the concept of which was showcased at the New York Auto Show this year.
