Stirs Owners’ Emotions and Excitement
Based mostly on its sporty design and outstanding performance, the Hyundai Tucson has won the title of most appealing small SUV. The JD Power research organization made the announcement recently that the Tucson took first place in the Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study. Now more than two decades old, this study measures the emotional attachment an owner has to his or her vehicle, as well as the level of excitement the vehicle demands. The study examines 77 categories ranging from the thrill of stepping on the accelerator to the comfort and security the vehicle delivers. See what’s most appealing about the Tucson in your own eyes by taking a test drive at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Tucson Has Strong Showing in Economy and Comfort
By delivering up to 32 mpg on the highway and providing customers excellent handling and a comfortable ride, the Tucson left all other SUVs in the dust. “We are thrilled with the recognition of Tucson in this year’s J.D. Power APEAL Study,” said director of Hyundai product planning Scott Margason. “The new Tucson looks great, has two fuel efficient engines and a roomy interior that satisfies a wide range of SUV buyers. The team did a great job launching the all-new Tucson this year.” Along with economy and comfort, the Tucson scored high for the HVAC system, exterior design, interior quality and storage.
2017 Tucson Offers Four Trim Levels
Whether you choose the base SE, ECO, Sport or Limited models, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson has a little something for everyone. Starting at just $22,700, the SE comes with a 2.0L engine that produces 164 horsepower. When teamed with the 6-speed automatic transmission, it delivers 30 miles to the gallon. Other standard features include air conditioning, a 5-inch color screen infotainment system and 6-way adjustable seat for the driver. The rest of the trim levels pair a 1.6L engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission. This not only provides more power, but adds a couple of miles a gallon to the highway fuel estimate. Features like projector headlights, LED running lights, larger wheels, heated seats and a larger touchscreen to control audio, navigation and hands-free communication become available as you move to the higher-priced models.
Don’t Forget Industry’s Top Warranty
While other manufacturer’s give you a 36 month or 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty, Hyundai is known for its generous 60-month, 60,000 mile coverage. The powertrain warranty is even longer, covering 84 months and 100,000 miles. Now’s the time to head to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road and see why Hyundai is recording record sales almost every month.
Innovative Automaker Moving Forward With Concept
Hyundai unveiled the Santa Cruz pickup last year as a concept vehicle, drawing such rave reviews that it looks like the vehicle will become a reality for the 2019 model year. “We have made the decision,” Hyundai CEO Dave Zuchowski told Motor Trend magazine. “We have not made the announcement.” According to Motor Trend, the new Santa Cruz would share the same chassis as the Hyundai Tucson. Preliminary design reviews are over and Hyundai is close to signing off on the final design before the next steps can begin. Stay tuned to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road for more information on when the Santa Cruz will be available for sale.
Could Include Diesel Engine
The new Santa Cruz pickup could include a diesel engine option, as Hyundai is busy on design for a diesel to add to the luxury Genesis models in Europe. Studies estimate that the automaker could sell as many as 70,000 pickups a year, which Zuchowski said “makes sense for us.” The introduction comes after the redevelopment of the Honda Ridgeline. Although the Subaru Baja had some success as a car-based pickup truck, no other automaker offers such a radical departure from the conventional pickup truck. The concept vehicle had an expandable bed, offering an alternative to people who didn’t want a big truck but had occasional hauling needs. The Santa Cruz would help Hyundai take a bigger share of the huge U.S. truck and SUV market. That category accounts for 62 percent of all U.S. sales, but right now is just 25 percent of all Hyundai sales. No decision yet on where the Santa Cruz will be manufactured, but could be part of the restructuring of the Montgomery, AL plant, adding more U.S. jobs.
Hyundai SUVs More Popular Than Ever
If you can’t wait a couple of years for the Santa Cruz pickup, consider buying one of the popular Hyundai SUVs. The compact Tucson and mid-size Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport are more popular than ever, offering outstanding efficiency and power along with plenty of room for people and stuff. Whether you need to take your kids and equipment to soccer practice or want to light out on a camping trip to the mountains, the Hyundai SUV lineup offers an attractive price and plenty of comfort. Hyundai also has the best new vehicle warranty in the industry, with 5 years and 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage. The 7-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty gives you additional peace of mind for the engine and transmission. Check out the Hyundai inventory of SUVs today at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
First Installment is All-Electric
When the Hyundai Ioniq debuts this fall at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road, it will be in the form of an all-electric vehicle that reaches a healthy 110 miles on a full charge. The all-electric version of the Ioniq will be followed by a hybrid this winter, with the plug-in hybrid available next summer. Ever since the inception of electric-based vehicles, there has been a debate as to what type of power is the best. Hyundai has settled the debate by offering virtually the same car with all three electric power options. This is just the beginning for Hyundai, which promises to have a vehicle lineup by 2020 that includes two hydrogen models, two all-electric vehicles, six hybrid plug-ins and a whopping 12 different hybrid models. Compare the entire lineup at your Phoenix Hyundai dealer.
Quick Charge Gets You on the Road
Opt for the 28.0 kwH charging unit and you can bring the new electric Ioniq up to an 80 percent charge in about 20 minutes. A standard household charger is also available but charges more slowly. The electric Ioniq comes with a 43 horsepower alternating current motor that has plenty of low-end torque to get you going and keep you moving at highway speeds. The lithium ion polymer battery pack is located under the rear seats and delivers 1.6 kwH of power. You’ll notice little differences between the electric Ioniq and the two hybrid versions. For one, the electric version doesn’t have a gasoline motor that needs cooling, so there is no open area where the grille is normally located. The rear lights of the electric vehicle are also a little different, and there’s a hint of copper coloring on the outside and interior to “create the impression that electricity is flowing through the whole car’s interior,” according to a press release from Hyundai.
Hyundai Looks to Attract New Demographic
“Ioniq will attract an entirely new group of eco- and efficiency-oriented buyers in the U.S. market,” according to Mike O’Brien, Hyundai VP. “With outstanding powertrain flexibility, design, connectivity, and advanced technologies, Ioniq meets the needs of a large and growing group of buyers needing a highly efficient, low-emissions vehicle without compromise to their daily lifestyles.” The futuristic design of the Ioniq interior signals a transition from the old to the new, just as the powertrain options are marking a new era in fuel efficiency. The controls are all laid out with an eye for intuitive operation, enhancing the driving experience. Test drive the new Ioniq electric vehicle this fall when it hits the showroom at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Efficient Eco Still Provides Plenty of Pop
As you might expect, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson Eco delivers the greatest fuel economy in the entire Tucson lineup, but what may be a surprise to you is that it is also the most inexpensive way to get your hands on the peppy 1.6L turbocharged engine. When paired with the dual clutch 7-speed automatic, the Eco is rated at 33 mpg on the highway for the front wheel drive model and slightly less if you choose all-wheel drive. Because the Eco has fewer standard features than its siblings, it is lighter which translates into quicker times at the track. At 7.4 seconds, the Eco beats the other Tucson models by two-tenths of a second in the race to 60 mph. Feel the power of the Eco for yourself by visiting Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
A Little Money Buys a Lot
For about $1,450, you can upgrade from the base Tucson SE to the Eco. That not only gets you the turbocharged engine that increases your performance by about 10 horsepower, a power driver’s seat with lumbar support, LED running lights, illuminated mirrors and outside mirror turn signals. “Car and Driver” magazine editors evaluated the Eco and found a lot to like, including a spacious rear seat and a well-designed cargo space. The Tucson Eco “is well suited to the daily grind in any form, so we’ll continue to sing its praises,” the editors wrote.
Four Models Offer Wide Selection
Whether you choose the Eco, the SE, Sport or Limited trim package, the Hyundai Tucson offers a lot of value in a vehicle that’s adept at maneuvering through tight urban traffic or providing comfort on a long road trip. The SE, with a listed starting price of $22,700, comes with an automatic transmission, 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rearview camera, air conditioning and an adjustable steering wheel. The Sport model provides the turbocharged engine, 19-in sport wheels, hands free lift gate and proximity start. If luxury in an affordable package is more suited to your taste, chose the Limited. Along with a more upscale interior, it features heated front seats and a slew of sensor-supported driver assistance features.
Hyundai Warranty is Top-of-the-Line
All Tucson models come with the famous 5-year, 60,000 mile Hyundai Limited Warranty that includes roadside assistance. Hyundai’s also have a 7-year/100,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, giving you the peace of mind of many years of driving before having to worry about major repair bills. See the entire Hyundai Tucson inventory when you take a short drive to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Performance and Efficiency Make Perfect Urban Commuter
If you’re looking for a vehicle that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, gets great gas mileage and still provides the performance you need when battling freeway traffic, consider the 2016 Hyundai Accent. Now available in sedan, hatchback and sport hatchback configurations, the Accent beats its competitors in horsepower, fuel efficiency and interior space. All Accents come equipped with a 1.6L, 137-horsepower engine that provides plenty of pep for passing or a day out on a winding road. At 38 mpg on the highway, the Accent beats competitors such as the Honda Fit. Its 21.2 cubic feet of cargo space is greater than either the Fit or Toyota Yaris. Head to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road to take a test drive of the new Accent today.
Fluid Design Provides Sophisticated Look
Although the Accent is on the lower end of the automotive cost spectrum, you couldn’t tel by looking. The 2016 Hyundai Accent has a refined design with sculpted sides, an aerodynamic slant and features like alloy wheels and projector LED headlights that contribute to an overall feel of sport and sophistication. The design of the hatchback models flows all the way to the back, where a rear spoiler adds a little flair while contributing to the excellent gas mileage. The Accent hatchback cuts through the wind efficiently, delivering a smooth ride and superior efficiency. Even though the Accent is in the subcompact category, it has a longer wheelbase than either Yaris or Fit, giving you more room inside to stretch out.
Sport Hatchback Loaded With Standard Features
The Accent Sport Hatchback starts at $16,495, but comes packed to the gills with features that aren’t even options on competitor vehicles. Heated side mirrors, rear spoiler, rear wiper, LED projector headlights and fog lights are all part of the package. Move to the interior of the Sport and you’ll find power windows, power locks, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise control, Bluetooth streaming, leather-wrapped steering wheel and a killer stereo system with six speakers that also has inputs for an MP3 player.
Accent Engineered to Outperform Competition
From the Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing in the engine that improves torque to the aerodynamics that take drag to a minimum, the Hyundai Accent is engineered to provide the power and efficiency that people need in the modern age. Choose the automatic transmission and you get an active ECO system that governs the way the engine and transmission work together to get the best efficiency. Low rolling resistance tires and an alternator system that manages power delivery add to the high tech way the Accent gets the most out of every drive. Stop by Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road to see how the Accent fits into your transportation needs.
Loads of Features Make Sporty SUV Popular
Whether it’s the hands-free liftgate, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection or spacious 71.5 cubic feet of cargo room, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport offers a load of features to go along with its dynamic handling and great gas mileage. The cubic feet of volume is larger than the Honda CR-V, Nissan Murano and Dodge Journey. Lane departure warning, available on the Sport, isn’t even offered on the Murano or Journey. Braking with pedestrian detection is not available on either the Murano or Chevy Equinox. See all the great features that come with the Santa Fe Sport by taking a drive to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Smart Cruise Control Makes Long Road Trips Easy
If you’ve ever tried to use regular cruise control during a long road trip, you know there are inevitably times where the vehicle in front of causes you to turn the cruise off. It may happen so much that you just decide to forego the aggravation and turn cruise off for the entire trip. Smart Cruise Control, which is not available on the Equinox or Murano, uses sensors to measure the distance to the car in front of you. It will automatically slow down to keep a safe distance, and then resume speed when the time is right. In the case of a traffic jam, it will stop the vehicle and then start up again when traffic clears.
Headlights Follow the Road
Being out on a dark lonely highway is not particularly fun, especially when you can’t see around the next corner. The Santa Fe Sport has available Dynamic Bending Light, which is not available in the Equinox, Ford Edge or Journey. Dynamic Bending Light turns the headlights to follow the road, keeping you in the know about what’s around the next turn. Also not available on the Equinox or Journey is the hands-free liftgate that opens when it senses the proximity key is nearby. You have to be within three feet for three seconds, so there’s not much danger of the gate lifting when you don’t need it.
Biggest Feature is Hyundai Warranty
Perhaps the biggest feature that the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has that competitors don’t is the 5-year, 60,000-mile warranty. While other manufacturers generally offer just 3 years and 36,000 miles, the Hyundai warranty ensures you can have peace of mind for many more miles down the road. See all the advantages to owning a Hyundai when you stop by Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.
Hyundai Gives You Rest of Year Off From Payments

Hyundai is offering bonus cash of up to $3,000 to help take care of the down payment. Everything from the affordable Elantra to the luxurious Equus have a financing promotion that makes affording a new Hyundai easier than ever before.
Best Ever May Keeps Sales Booming
Spurred on by strong performance from the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) line, Hyundai had its best May ever last month, selling 71,006 vehicles in the United States alone. “Our refreshed CUV lineup continues to exhibit strength in this market,” according to Hyundai North America VP Derric Hatami. Tucson, the smallest CUV Hyundai offers, almost doubled its sales over May of 2015. The Santa Fe is 123 percent over May of 2015, while the Santa Fe Sport saw an increase of 74 percent above the previous May sales. Hyundai’s finance promotions are expected to keep sales on a record pace for the calendar year.

The Military Program gives both active duty and veterans an additional $500 off eligible vehicles.
Style and Affordability Combine in One Package
Consumer advocate Kelley Blue Book picked the three-door Hyundai Veloster as one of the coolest vehicles you can buy under $18,000. With a unique and sporty design combined with an off-the-charts fun factor, the Veloster is a great car for young drivers with a small budget. “With one door on the driver’s side and two doors on the other side, the Veloster is among the most uniquely configured cars on the road,” according to KBB.com editorial director Jack R. Nerad. “But what makes the Veloster so compelling is that it mixes that standout style with surprising practicality and affordability.” Sales of the Veloster at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road have been brisk. The little sportster experienced a 69 percent increase in April over the previous year’s sales nationwide.
Veloster Comes in Four Trim Levels
Although the base Veloster provides plenty of thrills with a 132 horsepower engine and standard 6-speed manual transmission, there are three other trim levels from which to choose. The Turbo R-Spec has a twin-turbo 201 horsepower engine, 18-inch alloy wheels and a speed shifter that helps you quickly power through the gears. The Rally Edition and plain Turbo models come with the same 1.6L 4-cylinder engine. The regular Turbo has the option of a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.
The Third Door is the Charm
Test your friends to see if they can find the stealthy third door, hidden behind the passenger door. Along with a 7-inch touchscreen, rearview camera and plenty of connections for your electronic devices, the Veloster is one of the safest compact cars on the road. Four-wheel disc brakes, a vehicle stability management system and six airbags helped it earn a five-star safety rating. A traction control system works in concert with electronic stability control to help keep you on the road and moving forward in even the worst conditions.
Coolest Car Comes With Best Warranty
When you buy a Hyundai Veloster from Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road, you get the peace of mind of the industry’s best new car warranty. A 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty eclipses the guarantee of 36 months given by most car companies. Unlimited roadside assistance that covers towing, battery jumps and flat tire changes and a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty are also the best in the business. Visit Chapman Hyundai today and see why the Veloster is a popular choice among Millennials and sports car lovers everywhere.
New Engine Mates With Dual Shift Transmission
A brand new 1.4L Kappa GDI turbo 4-cylinder engine works with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission to provide 128 horsepower and a hybrid-worthy 40 mpg on the highway in the Hyundai Elantra Eco trim package. The car also gets 32 mpg in the city for a combined rating of 35 mpg. “Now entering its sixth generation, the Elantra model has always been synonymous with value in the highly competitive compact car segment,” according to Hyundai project planning manager Mike Evanoff. “With the new Elantra we not only focused key development objectives on performance, ride quality and efficiency, but committed ourselves to delivering a compelling value proposition at all price points. The Eco is an all-new trim for Elantar that offers consumers enhanced fuel efficiency.” The new Eco Trim will be coming to Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road sometime early this summer.
Eco Look Set Apart With Badging
Although it has the same basic design as other Elantra models, the Eco Trim package is identifiable by unique “Eco” badging and special 15-inch wheels. LED running lights and door handle illumination also provide a unique look. Tired of fumbling for keys with your hands full of groceries? Just approach the Hyundai Elantra Eco with your key fob in your pocket and the trunk lid will automatically pop open after three beeps. The interior of the Eco model is laid out both thoughtfully and ergonomically, putting all controls within a finger’s reach of the driver. Enjoy an infotainment system with a 7.0-inch touchscreen and rearview camera that utilizes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to synch up with your smartphone. Premium features like heated seats, push button start and dual automatic climate control are also available.
Efficient Elantra Packed With Safety Features
Although gas mileage is important, it’s not as critical as delivering everyone to the appointed destination in one piece. A seven airbag system protects your occupants in the event of a crash, but a rigid chassis and host of driver assistance features are also critical to the expected top safety rating of this popular model. The Hyundai Elantra Eco Trim model offers blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic awareness and lane assist, utilizing sensors to help you see and avoid potential obstacles. Check in with the pros at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road to see when this latest model is due to arrive on the showroom floor.
Great Gas Mileage Combines With Outstanding Horsepower
Test drive the new Hyundai Azera at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road and you’ll be stepping into a beautifully designed full size sedan that delivers both on the road and at the pumps. A 3.3L V6 engine is tuned to deliver 293 horsepower while still earning 29 mpg out on the highway. Add in the best-in-class interior room, a quiet cabin and plenty of creature comforts to create a car you’ll be proud to show off to friends and neighbors. A smooth-shifting 6-speed transmission runs seamlessly through the gears while providing plenty of power on the open road.
Fluidic Sculpture Design Philosophy Wins Admirers
Hyundai is a firm believer in a fluidic sculpture design philosophy that creates a feeling of movement even when a car is standing still. The new Hyundai Azera adheres soundly to that principle, with a sculpted body that is not only beautiful, but also sleek and energetic. LED accent lights surround available Xenon headlights to not only illuminate the road at night, but also announce your presence to other drivers who might not be paying close attention. LED taillights provide an energy-conscious solution to keep the Azera as efficient as possible while still delivering plenty of style. If letting the outside in appeals to you, opt for the panoramic tilt and slide sunroof that delivers stunning views. The sunroof not only puts you close to the environment, but also creates a more serene driving experience. Chrome tipped dual exhausts add a solid exclamation mark to the design while also contributing to the overall vehicle efficiency.
Spacious Interior Offers Room to Stretch
If you’ve ever folded yourself into a back seat for a long drive, you know how nice it is to be able to stretch your legs. The Hyundai Azera has the most room in its class, meaning five adults can pile in for a drive from Phoenix to Las Vegas and still be friends once they arrive. Leather seating, an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation and options like heated seats, 12-way driver power seat and integrated seat memory system all add to the comfort level. The infotainment system keeps you safely connected to the outside with Bluetooth and smartphone streaming. A 550 watt Infinity Logic stereo delivers concert quality sound in the cozy confines of the cabin. Power rear sunshades are a nice option to have in the Arizona summer, as are the standard second row air vents.
Premium Performance at an Affordable Price
Although it’s a premium vehicle, the Azera starts in the mid $30,000 range, thousands less than competitors. Hyundai doesn’t skip on performance, providing a technologically advanced engine that utilizes gasoline direct injection and dual continuously variable valve timing. Power is nice, but it doesn’t mean much if you find yourself losing control. When you test drive the Azera at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road, pay particular attention to the handling. Selective damping shock absorbers keep you in charge as you put the vehicle through its paces around tight corners.
