Hyundai has been racing to become the world’s most efficient and reliable automaker since 1967.

This South Korean car multinational automotive company only has one thing in mind: getting better, more reliable, and more attractive vehicles to consumers ASAP.

Hyundai doesn’t hide behind stories of 100-year-old car design traditions or anything of the sort. Everything you know about Hyundai comes from the quality and performance of its vehicles.

You’ve come to the right place if you want to import some of their modern craftsmanship to Los Santos.


1. Hyundai Accent (2010)

The cars on a city’s streets tell a story about its people and their circumstances. You can tell a lot from whether everyone’s driving a Tesla 3 or a mid-range car from a couple years ago.

A Hyundai Accent from 2010 is the perfect car for someone who’s seen better days financially and can’t seem to catch a break.

Crime, destruction of property, and death are common occurrences in Los Santos, so you’d definitely see some of these driving around town.

Almost makes you feel bad about hijacking their car at gunpoint. Almost.


2. Hyundai Equus VS500 (VI) (2015)

If you want something a little more “executive,” try the 2015 Hyundai Equus.

That bold, chromed front grille and luxurious hood ornament give this luxury sedan a prestigious look that’ll be hard to match by any other Hyundai model.

It’s a car for somebody who’s not afraid to show they’re a VIP. In a place like Los Santos, that has to be a real bad-ass, because criminality is through the roof.

This mod is highly detailed, with smooth animations for everything in the car, from the suspension to the engine vibration. It’s a real digital luxury.


3. Hyundai Sonata Limited (2020)

Most of Hyundai’s cars are a lot more sporty than the Equus.

Take the Hyundai Sonata, for example.

Looking at this beautiful four-door mid-size sedan, I think of every man and woman’s right to own a car that they like. This sedan is a sleek, sporty vehicle for people who want top-quality without breaking the bank.

It’s a lot more low-profile than the Equus – but in terms of performance and reliability, they both demonstrate Hyundai’s commitment to excellence.


4. Hyundai Kona (2018)

For something even more sporty, we’re looking at the Hyundai Kona.

This subcompact crossover SUV is perfect for the outdoorsy city-dweller who likes to escape into Blaine County occasionally but not often enough to justify owning an off-roader.

The prevalent use of matte black materials on some parts adds to its sporty personality. There’s something athletic about the interplay between its styling and the car’s compact size.

The Kona remains a relatively rare sight worldwide, making it a unique addition to Los Santos.


5. Hyundai Genesis Coupé (2013)

The Hyundai Genesis Coupé is a rear-wheel drive sports coupé introduced to South Korean and American markets between 2008 and 2010.

In 2011, it received a facelift incorporating Hyundai’s more recent design ideas, including a couple extra air intakes on the bonnet that give it a distinct racing edge. The front bumper was also tweaked to accentuate this effect.

This was one of the last Genesis vehicles launched under the Hyundai brand before Genesis Motors consolidated into a standalone luxury brand.


6. Hyundai Genesis Coupé (2013) Rocket Bunny

You can upgrade the Hyundai Genesis Coupé from “slightly racing-inspired” to “100% straight out of Need for Speed” with this wide-body kit by Rocket Bunny.

Designed by the sublime Kei Miura, Rocket Bunny body kits tend toward aggressive and beefy looks. With it, the Hyundai Genesis Coupé looks ready for a season of street racing and high-speed chases.

The downside to driving something like this is that the LSPD will have its eyes on you in no time. The chances of someone in a car like this being shady are pretty high in Los Santos.


7. Genesis G90 (2021)

Genesis Motors may have split from Hyundai to focus on luxury vehicles, but its design language maintains a lot of that clean and modern Hyundai style.

The Genesis G90 is the successor to the Hyundai Equus. It’s also one of the first cars ever made by Genesis as an independent automaker.

Like the Equus, it projects strength and prestige. They share similar classic-styled wheel rims, and the front grille is just as much of a focus point in its design.

This 2021 model belongs to the G90s second generation, incorporating a two-line lamp and cubical projection lights. You’ll notice two matching rows of rear lights as well.


8. Hyundai Santa Fe (2019)

SUVs are one of the most popular car types in the US. By proxy, this makes them popular in Los Santos as well.

That means the Santa Fe is the perfect Hyundai for the local market in the City of Saints.

It even has “Santa” in the name! It’s a match made in heaven.

Hard-working criminals carrying guns, illicit substances, and dirty money will quickly fall in love with its spacious, upscale interior.

The clean and modern exterior should also be a hit.


9. Hyundai Veloster N (2018)

Hyundai N has been the name for Hyundai’s high-performance brand since 2016.

One of my favorite cars carrying the “N” badge is the Hyundai Veloster N, the first “N” model sold in the United States.

It’s a performance-enhanced counterpart of the second-generation Hyundai Veloster introduced in 2018. Not only does it look more sporty, but it pushes the Veloster’s 2.0L engine to the limit with a turbocharger that raises its power output to 275hp – a whole 128hp more than the base model.

Its light weight and compact size make it perfect for tackling the off-road around the outskirts of Los Santos to shake off the police.


10. Hyundai Elantra (2021)

The Hyundai Elantra has been celebrated among those in the know as one of the best affordable options for discerning drivers – but what drove me to put it up here is its visual design.

The 2021 Elantra looks straight out of a Black Mirror episode. There’s something almost oppressively modern about its angular body shape, gorgeous rear light setup, and enormous front grille.

Its wider fastback rear makes me want to play Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Baby Got Back as I drive around Los Santos.

Oh my God, Becky. Look at his Hyundai Elantra!
