2018 Hyundai Elantra

2017HyundaiElantraWhen equipped with available High Beam Assist and Automatic Emergency Braking features, the Hyundai Elantra compact car walks away as an IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+. The braking system can alert you and help apply brakes when you come up on a slower or stopped car, and the high beams save you from having to remember to manually turn on/off those high beams.

The IIHS gave the 2018 Elantra the highest rating of Good in five separate crash tests. In addition, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback earned a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK award, so if you like more cargo space and the hatch design, there’s a safe Elantra option for you.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

If you need the utility of a midsize SUV, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a safe choice, having earned the IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award when equipped with optional Automatic Emergency Braking and HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Lights. These powerful lights will move in sync with the steering wheel to give you better visibility on curvy, winding roads.


The 2018 Santa Fe earned the IIHS’ highest rating of Good in five different crash tests. The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has also been named a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+, so if you’re looking for a nimbler, sportier ride, the Santa Fe Sport will deliver, securely.

2018 Hyundai Sonata

HyperFocal: 0

For drivers in the market for a safety-certified midsize car, the Hyundai Sonata has earned scores of Good (the highest rating) on all five IIHS crash tests and become a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ when available LED headlights with Dynamic Bending Lights and Automatic Emergency Braking systems are in place.

Not only does the 2018 Sonata have intelligent braking and bending headlights to help avoid or mitigate collisions, but you’ll also find plenty of other available driver assist features, including Adaptive Cruise Control, to help you set and maintain a specified following distance from the vehicle in front of you.

Your Guide to the All-New Hyundai Kona

With SUVs such as the Santa Fe and the Tucson, Hyundai has long been offering drivers functional and powerful options. Nevertheless, they may be a bit too bulky for some in the Cerritos, Long Beach, Anaheim, and Downey areas.

If you’d prefer your SUV functionality in a smaller, more maneuverable package, the all-new 2018 Hyundai Kona is for you. Check out this preview by the Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos team for your first look!

The Perfect Vehicle for Adventure: 2018 Hyundai Kona

In Southern California, there’s plenty of opportunity for adventure close at hand. You might be taking a trip to the beach, or heading off-road for a day of hiking or rock-climbing. In either case, you’ll have plenty of gear to cart around.

The 2018 Hyundai Kona is an excellent choice for these outings for several reasons. To start, the size is just right. It’s slated to offer ample passenger room and plenty of cargo room. Nevertheless, the crossover’s body is compact enough to maneuver and park in a city setting.

Another big boon is that the Hyundai Kona includes a multi-link rear suspension and available all-wheel drive system. These features really lend themselves to that maneuverability, ensuring that the handling in the Kona is just as good.

The Hyundai Kona Powertrain

The standard powertrain in the Hyundai Kona comes with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission. This combo certainly generates a respectable amount of power (while maintaining good efficiency, too). However, some drivers may prefer more muscle.

Fortunately, the Kona also gas a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder option, with an upgrade to a 7-speed transmission. The presence of turbocharging is sure to greatly amp up Hyundai Kona horsepower.

Rugged & Sleek: Hyundai Kona Design

The 2018 Hyundai Kona seems to settle at the intersection between a purely rugged body and some sleeker designed options. It has an ample wheelbase and plenty of ground clearance, for example, but still adds in a heap of exterior accents.

The sculpted, swooping hood of the Kona slopes easily into a bold, black front fascia. This is complete with sharp, angular lights and a bold grille.

Equally bold are the color options available for the Kona. In this crossover, you can add in a vibrant lime green, sky blue, or a darker, classic red. Whatever suits your tastes!

A High-Tech Crossover

Technology is a key player in all the best cars these days. And it’s set to play just as big of a role in the 2018 Hyundai Kona.

First and foremost, you’ll have plenty of entertainment features to choose from. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ come standard with the 7-inch touchscreen. However, you can also add in an 8-inch navigation system, and even wireless charging.

There’s also a fair amount of intuitive safety technology. Available Hyundai SmartSense™, for instance, features forward collision/avoidance assist with pedestrian detection.

Stay Up to Date on the 2018 Hyundai Kona

Though it’s not quite here yet, the 2018 Hyundai Kona, which is expected to arrive in Spring 2018, looks like a phenomenal addition to the Hyundai lineup.

Cerritos, Long Beach, Anaheim, and Downey drivers can learn more about this compact SUV by getting in touch with the Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos team. Contact us today for more information.

2018 Hyundai Tucson

The 2018 Tucson is a compact SUV that’s known for having spacious rear seats, high safety ratings, and a long list of standard and available features.

  • Front legroom: 41.5 inches
  • Rear headroom: 39.2 inches
  • Rear legroom: 38.2 inches
  • Passenger volume: 102.2 ft3

Like the Sonata, the Tucson offers heated and ventilated front seats, plus a heated steering wheel. It also offers heated rear seats, so everyone can stay warm on chillier mornings.

This SUV offers lots of driver-assisting technologies, as well, to help prevent any accidents from occurring. One such feature is Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. It’ll warn you of a possible collision with a vehicle or pedestrian detected in front of you. If you don’t react in time, the system can apply the brakes for you.

The Tucson is seen as a highly safe vehicle, as it earned a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It was also awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

It’s no secret that Cerritos, Long Beach, Anaheim, and Downey are pretty eco-conscious cities. And while this trend is known for greatly benefiting our environment, it can also benefit drivers. See, a good hybrid car will reduce your carbon footprint and save you money at the same time.

Are you unfamiliar with the Hyundai hybrid models? Not for long. The Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos team is here to give you the inside scoop.

The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

One of the things that the small sedan sector is known for is granting drivers high mileage. However, you can easily elevate this efficiency to new heights by choosing the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid as your next vehicle.

The gasoline engine in the Ioniq is a little bit smaller. At 1.6L, this inline 4-cylinder would normally churn up just over 100 HP. However, when you add in an interior permanent magnet synchronous motor, speed is really kicked up.

This comfy little car, which offers 96.2 cubic feet of occupant space and numerous entertainment technologies including Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, maintains some pretty serious mileage. In total, drivers can expect to maintain 58 MPG combined.12017 Ioniq Hybrid

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

If you’re at all familiar with the Hyundai lineup, then you must know a thing or two about the Sonata. For many years, this midsize sedan has served as one of the brand’s most well-known vehicles.

What you may not know is that the Hyundai Sonata also comes in a hybrid model. They take the standard 2.0L inline 4-cylinder that you’d normally find under the hood and combine it with a synchronous motor and lithium-ion battery. Together, this outfit generates as much as 193 HP. It can also maintain a combined 42 MPG.2

Of course, the Sonata Hybrid still maintains all the features that you know and love. With 106.1 cubic feet of interior room, it adds in a host of amenities, comforts, and neat gadgets to keep you satisfied.

The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell

Now, we know that you’re looking for a hybrid vehicle. But do you know that Hyundai offers another new fuel alternative? In the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, you can ditch gasoline entirely for a hydrogen powered vehicle.

Hydrogen fuel cells are a newer innovation, but have been generally regarded as one of the most efficient and safe methods of powering a car to date. They’re also good for the environment, as they utilize naturally abundant resources and emit nothing but water vapor.

The fuel cells in the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell take just ten minutes to fill. And on that single tank (so to speak) you’ll be able to drive up to 265 miles.3 Honestly, it’s looking like fuel cell cars may be the way of the future.

These two powerplants come together to create a combined system output of 139 horsepower. And let’s not discount its six-speed EcoShift® dual clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, either.

It’s built with bio-fabrics and recycled plastics, which you’ll find throughout the headliner, the carpeting, the door trim, and more. Hyundai’s concern for the planet is evident on every step along the way, from beginning to end.

The major efficiency feature that you can look forward to is its cutting-edge SAE combination port with DC fast-charging capabilities. This thing truly doesn’t need a single drop of gas to cruise through the city.
