Road Trip Destinations

Since the weather isn't oppressing during the fall, this is the time to take road trips. If you want to see some of the best fall foliage, you need to head out to the mountains. If you prefer more action, then you can head out to a place with tons of music venues and other places with something going on just about every day.
Before you head out, be sure to have your vehicle serviced at Superior Hyundai South. And, if you are considering a new vehicle, what better way to celebrate your new car by taking a road trip. Head over to our sales department to pick up your next vehicle now.
Plan a road trip over the Cherohala Skyway. The Skyway is 42 miles long and it reaches a mile above sea level. Starting in Tellico Plains, Tennessee, the Skyway crosses the Great Smoky Mountains into Robbinsville, North Carolina. The Skyway is comprised of two highways: Tennessee State Highway 165 and North Carolina 143. You'll follow a mile-high ridge in the Unicoi Mountains. Tellico Plains is at 930 feet and the highest point at Santeetlah Overlook is 5,390 feet - just over a mile.
The road starts at the Cherohala Skyway Visitor Center at 225 Cherohala Skyway. Pick up maps, information, a picnic lunch, drinks and top off the tank. There are no restaurants or gas stations on the Skyway. However, there are plenty of great views including a side trip to Bald River Falls; hiking, fishing and camping in Nantahala National Forest; Santeetlah Overlook; and the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest.
The Old Blues Highway
Starting in Memphis, you can take Highway 61 along a legendary route that follows the Mississippi River. Follow the route to Vicksburg to find plenty of music including soul, R&B and gospel.
In Memphis, be sure to visit the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, located at 926 E. McLemore Ave. The museum is named after the famous record label that recorded Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding and the Staple Singers.
Take a tour with Tad Pierson of American Dream Safari (americandreamsafari.com) of Memphis nightclubs to hear live Blues music. Before you leave Memphis, stop at Downtown's Rendezvous at 52 S. Second Street or Tops Bar-B-Q located at 1258 Union Ave. for some of the best barbecue. Head out to Tunica, Clarksdale, Rosedale and Vicksburg for more music and great food.
Before you head out on any of these road trips, make sure your vehicle is in shape for these trips, especially the trip over the mountains. Have everything including the brakes checked at Superior Hyundai South.

Fun Road Trip Games
Image by Tobias via Flickr Creative Commons
After getting your vehicle serviced at Superior Hyundai South
- or buying or leasing a new vehicle from us - you're ready for a road
trip. One of the things you should think about "packing" is some road
trip games to keep the kids busy. Otherwise, they're going to get bored,
even with a DVD player in the vehicle and they'll start driving you up
the proverbial wall. Keeping them busy will keep them from arguing with
each other and will also give them an opportunity to learn. Who ever
thought homework could be fun?
If you have younger kids, get their spelling list from the teacher. You can use those words or mix them with other words. If you want to make the game more exciting or you run out of school words, you can have the kids spell the names of things you see on the road. You might see a sign and have them spell "sign." You might see a motel and have them spell "motel." Just be sure to pick words that are age-appropriate. For example, you wouldn't have a 6-year-old spell "rambunctious" even though the kids might be acting that way.
I Spy is an oldie but goodie. One person starts with saying, "I spy? and then give a clue such as a color, the first letter of the item, etc. That person gives clues until someone guesses. The person that guesses goes next. Make sure the things everyone picks are within everyone's vision for at least a few minutes. Pick things in the car or farther down the road.
Group Story is also an oldie, but goodie. One person starts with a line, then another person adds to it and so on, to make a story. You can make this more challenging by ruling that the last word of the sentence must rhyme with the last word of the previous sentence. You can also create poetry this way, instead of doing a regular story.
Keeping the kids busy during a road trip makes the trip entertaining, relaxing and fun for all. And when you don't have to worry about your vehicle that just tops it all off. Be sure to have your vehicle serviced at Superior Hyundai South if you haven't recently - or if you haven't bought or leased a new vehicle this summer.

Buying a New vs. Used Car
When you head out to Superior Hyundai South,
you can buy a new or used car - and this is a personal choice. Often
people who want something with more bells and whistles will buy a used
car as they can get more vehicle for their money. Often, you can find
vehicles just a couple of years old with decent mileage on them.
Instead of having to settle for a Sonata, you just might be able to find a Genesis with all of the bells and whistles, just the right financing, and low mileage to boot.
You'll find that buying used has other benefits, too - depreciation is a big one. A used vehicle that is just a couple of years old doesn't depreciate as fast as a brand new car. And, when you buy a used car from us, we make sure the vehicle is in excellent working condition and is up to date on service.
When you go to trade in your new-to-you car in a few years, you won't lose as much money as you would if you were to buy a brand new vehicle. And, if you keep it in great condition and keep the mileage low enough, you could make out pretty good.
Right now, Superior Hyundai South has a 2011 Hyundai Genesis for just over $24,000 - and it has just over 15,500 miles on it. This model has tons of bells and whistle including illuminated entry, distance pacing cruise control, a power moon roof, steering wheel memory, automatic temperature control, a memory seat, remote keyless entry, a navigation system, a 17-speaker audio system, heated and ventilated front seats, a leather steering wheel, auto-dimming door mirrors, heated door mirrors, a 4.6-liter engine that makes 385 horsepower, parking sensors, high intensity discharge headlights, rain-sensing wipers and more.
Stop by Superior Hyundai South today to test drive this or any other used vehicle on the lot. Be sure to ask your salesperson about all of the features with each vehicle, and whether the vehicle you are test driving has any added options included.

Why Choose Superior Hyundai South
When you are ready to purchase or lease a vehicle, you must consider several things, including what kind of vehicle you want, the price of the vehicle, what make you want - and finally, where you're going to get the vehicle. Not all dealerships are the same when it comes to easy financing and customer service.
Superior Hyundai South has salespeople who care about what you need - you are not "just another sale" to them. Our sales team is experienced and courteous, allowing it to guide you to the proper vehicle that fits your needs and your financial situation. The sales team is also knowledgeable about every vehicle on the lot and will willingly answer your questions.

You can also get more vehicle for your money when you lease as the monthly payments are typically lower than when you finance. If you don't plan to drive the vehicle for more than a few years before you upgrade, then ask our sales team about leasing options.
One of the best reasons to buy or lease your next vehicle from Superior Hyundai South is because of the specials we offer. We offer special rates on some leases, special financing on some purchases, and we offer service specials. Service specials often include deals on required maintenance, service and even repairs.

Hyundai Buys Solo Sponsorship of Hulu's Mario Batali Show
of the best ways to market a product is to use unconventional
marketing. This makes people pay attention to the ad campaign. Hyundai
has done just that for the Genesis, which is available at Superior Hyundai South.
its newest ad campaign, Hyundai bought sole sponsorship rights for "The
High Road" series on Hulu. The series is shot in New York and is filmed
in black and white. Mario Batali interview celebrities on the show.
This season's shows will include Jimmy Fallon, George Stephanopoulos,
Rachel Ray and Isabella Rossellini. Part of Rossellini's interview will
be shot in a Hyundai Genesis.
According to David Matathia, the
director of marketing for Hyundai, people want content on their own
terms, they want "what they want when they want it." Maatathia says that
branded content such as the ad campaign with Hulu and "The High Road"
gives the auto maker a huge advantage.
Because Hyundai puts a
lot of effort into its launches so that it can build awareness for
consumers. He also needs to sustain the launch activity when it's time
for the next new model to come out. Creating a sole sponsorship allows
just that, it allows the auto manufacturer to cater to a specific
audience and to make sure that audience sees every new model that comes
out, including vehicles with changes, whether significant or
Using branded content is a benefit to Hyundai and its partner. In this case, Hyundai benefits because it will be the sole commercial on the show; and "The High Road" benefits as it needed a single, large sponsor for the show.
This is not the first time Hyundai spent this kind of money on an ad campaign. It bought advertising in the Super Bowl and is one of seven official World Cup sponsors. Matathia is hoping to reach a different crowd.
"The High Road," according to Batali, is to "capture conversation with interesting people outside of their personal and professional domains. He also stated that the series is his love letter to New York City.

Buying vs. Leasing a Car
When you visit Superior Hyundai South
to test drive a vehicle, one of the choices you'll have to make is
whether to lease or buy. Each method has its own positives and
negatives. Figuring out which method suits you best is how you will
determine the answer to whether to lease or buy a vehicle.
The benefits of buying a vehicle include the ability to keep the vehicle as long as you want, the ability to change something on the vehicle, and equity in the vehicle. Alterations might include upgrading the wheels, adding some "go fast parts" to the engine, changing the paint color, or even adding bumper stickers.
Additionally, when you buy a vehicle, you don't have mileage restrictions. If your commute is a long one or you like to go on road trips fairly often, you might be better off buying. Or, if you are the type that has to change something, such as adding pin striping, changing out the stock air filter, adding an MSD or any other modification, buying might be better than leasing for you.
Some of the drawbacks of buying a vehicle include having to take a loss because the resale value of the vehicle you like is not as high as some other vehicles, having a chance that you will be upside down on the loan when you decide you want a different vehicle, and not getting to get a new vehicle every few years without possibly having it cost you thousands of dollars.
The benefits of leasing a vehicle including getting to upgrade every few years, getting more vehicle for the money since lease payments are lower than purchase payments, getting something with a smaller down payment and getting a new vehicle before the warranty runs out.
Some of the drawbacks of leasing include
mileage restrictions, if you go over the amount allowed in the lease,
you pay a per mile fee at the end of the lease. You won't be able to
personalize the vehicle unless you add something that can be removed.
The biggest drawback is that you're paying payments on something that
you don't get to keep. If you would rather have a new car every few
years or if you want the new technology as it becomes available, that
might outweigh the drawbacks for you.
Furthermore, while you should make it a practice to do the maintenance on a vehicle whether you buy or lease, if you do not do the maintenance on a leased vehicle, you may be charged a fee. Another downside to leasing is that your credit usually has to be great.
Before you head down to Superior Hyundai South,
look at the benefits of buying and leasing and make up your mind which
way is better for you so that you are ready to strike a deal when you
find the vehicle you just have to have.
Road Trip Activities
Getting ready for a road trip encompasses several things, including having your vehicle checked or serviced at Superior Hyundai South.
If you have kids, you'll also need to plan for some road trip
activities or your head might explode about halfway through the trip
because the kids are bored and are starting to argue and nit-pick at
A phone or tablet might keep the kids occupied for
some of the time, but eventually they will get bored with that. If your
vehicle has a DVD player and LCD screens in the back seat, be sure to
bring a favorite movie or two, this will help with keeping them occupied
during the trip.
If you don't have a DVD player, the kids can download movies and videos on a tablet. Otherwise, you should have some activities planned, such as the Alphabet Game, Yellow Car, I Spy or License Plates.
To play the Alphabet Game, players shout out
something they see that begins with a letter of the alphabet. You can
start at A or Z. Yellow Car, or choose any color, is played by tallying
points whenever someone sees a yellow car. The person to get the points
has to be the first to call it out, and it can't be a taxi or a school
bus. There are several variations of License Plates, with each type
earning a certain number of points. To make it harder, have the kids
find rare plates, specialty plates or even plates from Alaska or Hawaii.
a deck of cards with you, you can play some games that don't require a
lot of space. Two kids can play Go Fish or War. If the children are
older, they can play a form of Rummy where you hold all the matches in
Additional activities might include hand-held games, such as the PlayStation portable. Be sure you have more than one or two games so the kids can switch out when they get tired of one game.
Before you leave, be sure to stop at Superior Hyundai South to get your vehicle serviced. If it was just serviced, stop by to have us check everything including the fluids.

Keep Your Hyundai Looking and Running Cool This Summer
Whether you have a brand new Hyundai from Superior Hyundai South
or you have an older Hyundai, you still need to keep it maintained
throughout the summer, including special maintenance for the summer.
During the winter, you don't think much about the air conditioning as
you don't need it, however, when the heat arrives, you're definitely
thinking about that!
If you haven't had your air conditioning checked recently, and you feel it's not working up to par, you need to have it checked. Once the super-hot heat arrives, a system that is working sub-par is going to quit on you.
The air conditioning system has several components including the compressor, dryer/accumulator, orifice tube or expansion block, condenser and high- and low-pressure hoses. Of course, you have switches and other electronics and fans that go along with that. In many cases, your vehicle may simply be low on Freon. Topping it off takes care of the problem.
However, you may have a slow leak, or if the
system is not cooling at all, but it comes on, you could have a large
leak or a blockage. The experienced technicians at Superior Hyundai
South have the equipment to diagnose the air conditioning system and to
Spring and summer bring about tons of pollen and dust that build up on your vehicle's paint job. Keeping it washed and waxed makes the paint job stay brighter longer and helps to keep the clear coat from peeling and dulling the paint.
If you have polished aluminum or chrome wheels, be sure to
keep the wheels clean. Chrome tends to "pit" if it's not kept clean, and
the only way to repair that is to buy new rims or to have the rims
The sun's rays love to destroy vehicle interiors. Keep a sunshade in the windshield if you park your Hyundai outside. The rays will crack the dash pad, fade the carpet and even the headliner, and, depending on the seat material, could fade it or even cause it to crack and tear.
Maintenance Beyond Hyundai's Recommendation
beyond Hyundai's recommendation, such as keeping the vehicle washed and
waxed, protecting the interior, cleaning the wheels and additional air
conditioning service checks is an important part of keeping your vehicle
up. Stop by Superior Hyundai South for maintenance and service.

Could This Be the New Tucson?
Soon enough, you will see a new generation of the Tucson when you visit Superior Hyundai South.
While the new generation crossover hasn't been seen in the U.S. yet, it
has been seen being tested in Germany where it's known as the ix35.
new prototype features include five-spoke alloy wheels and a sportier
design. Peter Schreyer and his design team have been working diligently
on making eye candy out of the Tucson. This means that the new
generation should have a significant build quality improvement. You may
see a new grille, thinner panel lines and new outer shape.
Additional expected changes include LED headlights with a circular design and two triangular pipes with 3D-effect tips for the exhaust. If Hyundai keeps these things, the Tucson will definitely be set apart from its competition, who likes to hide its vehicles' plain-Jane exhausts behind the bumpers.

Road Trip Must-Haves
You just bought or leased a new vehicle from Superior Hyundai South,
or you just had your current vehicle serviced. Either way, it's time
for a road trip. Whether it's a couple hours or a couple days to your
destination, you should be prepared to spend some time in the vehicle.
The less you have to stop for breaks, including food and drink breaks,
the sooner you'll get to your destination, and this is a good thing when
your time is limited to a day or a weekend. Packing for a short or long
road trip is the same; you just change the amount of supplies you bring
Keep a cooler full of ice, soda, water or tea within reach. This will keep you from stopping every couple hours for a drink break. If you plan on traveling through a meal, pack some sandwiches and snacks. If your trip is just a couple of hours, you might want some snacks, especially if you have kids.
Pack sandwiches into airtight snap-lid containers so they can ride in the cooler with the drinks. If you choose snacks that melt easily, put them in containers and in the cooler, too.
Make sure you have plenty for the kids
to do. Whether they use their phones, a hand-held game console or you
play games such as Yellow Car or the Alphabet Game, make sure they have
something to stay entertained or you'll keep hearing the old "Are we
there yet?" question over and over and over?
Pillows and blankets are great items for a road trip, especially if you have kids. If they start getting tired, they can fall asleep easier with their own pillows and blankets. If it's cool outside, a pillow and blanket for an adult passenger will keep you warm when you fall asleep.
Make sure your first aid kit is updated before you head out on the road. Even in a brand new vehicle, you never know if you're going to be stranded. Mother Nature could show her mean streak at the drop of a dime, so it's best to be prepared. In addition to bandages, antiseptics and other typical first aid kit items, you should have extra batteries, a charger for your cell phone and a whistle.
Stop by Superior Hyundai South before you leave to have everything checked, especially if it's been some time since your last service appointment.

Don't Miss the Hyundai Genesis and Sonata at the World Cup
Genesis and the Sonata have a special job, as they will be the vehicles
that will represent the auto manufacturer at the FIFA World Cup in
Brazil. The World Cup will be held in June and July; and it's the
perfect venue for Hyundai to amp up the entire brand. Previously,
Hyundai used the Genesis and the Equus nameplates to advance premium
market ambitions, but now the company wants to advance its entire line
of vehicles, including the Sonata and other redesigned models you can
find at Superior Hyundai South.
One of the ways to do this is to showcase the Sonata with the Genesis; and that is exactly what the Korean auto maker is doing. Both vehicles have been redesigned and both model years are launching about the same time, according to Steven Shannon, the vice president of marketing of Hyundai Motor America. Shannon also stated that Hyundai's sponsorship includes exclusive auto advertising on ESPN and Univision during the tournament coverage.
Additionally, Hyundai is putting together a program to help dealerships create golf programs of their own. The company will help dealerships find local tournaments.
The Sonata has new engineering, is more refined and quieter, has a better body structure and chassis, more technology and better fuel economy than previous versions. Shannon said that advertising the two cars together reminds people that the premier Genesis and the Sonata come from the same auto manufacturer.
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata GLS features a 2.4-liter engine backed by a six-speed automatic mode select transmission. This combination puts out 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. It gets 24 mpg* in the city and 35 mpg* on the highway.
Convenience and entertainment features include speed control, an emergency communication system, remote keyless entry, an overhead console, an MP3 decoder, SiriusXM, six speakers and steering wheel-mounted audio controls, and an AM/FM stereo.

arrangement. Hyundai got rid of the symmetrical arrangement and created a
dashboard that is more driver focused. It also changed the steering
wheel rim thickness, updated the central driver information system to
make it clearer, and sculpted the backs of the front seats so rear
passengers would have more knee room.

The Equus Takes Home A Best Interior Award!
When you stop by Superior Hyundai South
to test drive the 2014 Hyundai Equus, keep in mind that the editors at
WardsAuto.com just named this model to this year's "Ward's 10 Best
Interiors" list, and with good reason. The Equus Ultimate's interior is
not what you would expect from a vehicle that is priced much less than a
"typical" ultra-luxury vehicle.
The Equus features fine
craftsmanship, lots of leather and rear seating fit for a limousine. The
rear armrest features a button that moves the front passenger seat
forward and reclines the rear seat, all the way back. The button is
appropriately named "Relax."
Eight editors for Wardsauto review 41 different vehicles with redesigned or all-new interiors. The editors took two months to check out each vehicle's driver information center, ergonomics, materials, fit-and-finish, safety, design and value. The editors did not place a price cap on entries so any luxury car could compete for the title.
The chief designer at Hyundai Design
North America, Christopher Chapman, stated that the flagship sedan's
cabin is attractive, roomy and caters to the driver and passenger. In
addition, the quality of materials used makes the Equus look "sleek and
modern." The Equus was redesigned for 2014.
When you first get in for a test drive, you'll notice premium materials, even on the instrument panel. The newly redesigned center stack and the entire instrument panel have a new layout, which is more ergonomically correct. And, it has new icons on the buttons so drivers can better recognize what features those buttons control.
The steering wheel controls
are also new, it now features low-sheen buttons with better icons.
Depending on the trim level, rear passengers can enjoy entertainment on
dual 9.2-inch adjustable seat back video screens, in high resolution, no
less. The rear passengers can also control media, audio and air
conditioning right from the rear seat.
Stop by Superior Hyundai South
today to test drive the Equus and learn more about its convenience,
entertainment, security and safety features. Ask your salesperson about
additional options, various trim levels and whether the dealership is
running any specials on the Equus.
Hyundai Sponsors Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational
Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational was held from April 3 through
April 6, 2014. The event features A-listers from the entertainment and
sports sectors and raises money for worthy causes. This year, the event
raised over $500,000 for those causes. And, during this 13th year,
Hyundai was the official vehicle. The event was held at the Shadow Creek
Golf Course in Las Vegas, Nevada. Hyundai displayed the 2015 Genesis
premium sedan, soon to be available at Superior Hyundai South, and its flagship sedan, the Equus. Players got a chance to win the Genesis at a hole-in-one contest.
The new Genesis was the perfect vehicle for Hyundai to display at the Invitational: it is the start of something new at Hyundai and begged to be shown off at such an important event. The new Genesis has a new grille and rooflines, making the vehicle look stunning. As if that wasn't enough, the winged Genesis badge told everyone just how luxurious the vehicle could be. The sides of the vehicle were also changed.
the dash now has a horizontal orientation and a sensible layout. The
infotainment and navigation screen is in the middle and high up on the
dash to make it easier to see. The extensive wood trim and curved dash
top speak of elegance.
While the engines are the same as previous model years' engines, they were tweaked for better economy and performance. The base model features a 3.8-liter engine that makes 311 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque. The 5.0-liter engine puts out 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are backed by an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and four modes to choose from: Eco, Normal, Sport and Snow. Also new in 2015 is an all-wheel drive mode.
While the safety ratings for the 2015 Genesis have not yet been released, you can bet that it will score well. The Genesis features nine standard airbags including a driver's knee bag, a rearview camera system, high beam assist, and front and rear parking assistance. Plus it features many active safety systems like the blind spot system and lane keep assist.

Hyundai Intrado Concept
The Hyundai Intrado was unveiled at the 2014 Salon International de l'Auto show in Geneva, Switzerland. The Intrado is a concept vehicle that shows consumers how a vehicle could enrich their lives. While it may be a while until you see something like the Intrado at dealerships in the U.S., including Superior Hyundai South, this concept car shows where Hyundai is thinking of going with new models.
It shows that Hyundai believes that intelligent design and advanced vehicle technologies can be combined to have more effective engagement with the driver and passengers. The Intrado is built from lightweight materials, features an advanced powertrain and uses radical construction methods. The focus on design is shown inside and outside, and shows how Hyundai is interested in meeting the needs of the consumer.
The Intrado is based on aircraft and takes its name from the underside of an airplane's wing. This is the part that creates lift so the plane can fly. Other ideas that come from aircraft include the removal of unnecessary weight and complex challenge solutions.
When you see the Intrado, you'll notice that it has a distinct exterior shape; this is so that the vehicle is aerodynamically efficient. The car doesn't have badges and other unnecessary adornments and has very little detailing. Hyundai used super lightweight steel for the body panels. The interior is created from advanced materials. You can see the carbon fiber body when you open the trunk, hood or doors since the seals of the openings are directly against the body of the vehicle. The Intrado also features see-through air vents and the seats bolt directly to the exposed frame.
Hyundai is on a mission to create a vehicle that is lighter, stronger, is easy to repair and fun to drive. The company used new joining and manufacturing techniques to change the strength and rigidity of the Intrado; and this allows the body panels to be made from just about any material. This means that designers can be flexible in making the vehicle lighter than any other vehicle currently on the market.
The Intrado's powertrain features a next-generation hydrogen fuel cell and a Lithium-ion 36 kW battery. It takes only a few minutes to refuel it; and the Intrado has a 600-kilometer range. It's emissions? Only water.
Keep your eye on this space for more
information about the Intrado or any other hydrogen vehicles that
Hyundai may be putting on the market, or stop by Superior Hyundai South for more information on Hyundai's new technology.
