2017 Hyundai Tucson Offers Efficiency and a Smooth Ride

If you’re in the market for a new SUV, head in to Keyes Cars and take the 2017 Hyundai Tucson for a spin. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did. Both the SE 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and the 1.6 Turbo GDI engine offer an optimal balance of performance and efficiency. A 6-speed automatic transmission comes standard and delivers a smooth ride. But if you’re looking for a more direct connection with the road, you’ll want to opt for the class-exclusive available 7-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission.

A multi-link rear suspension provides incredible response and a comfortable, composed ride, even on rough road surfaces. In the front, you’ve got an independent strut design with coil springs and gas-pressurized SACHS® shock absorbers. Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) brings it all together to give you a more natural driving feel.

To take traction and cornering ability to the next level, you can add in available Active Cornering Control All Wheel Drive (AWD). In situations where you could use a better grip on the road, it transfers engine torque to the rear wheels and applies braking force to the inside rear wheel. For particularly slippery conditions, or when you’re out off-roading, a driver-selectable AWD lock allows for a 50/50 split of available torque between the front and rear wheels.

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson is just the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty of great new Hyundai SUVs waiting for the right driver here at our dealership near Beverly Hills, CA. Come see if one of them is right for you. And right now, during our 2017 March Sales Drive, take advantage of one of three great offers with approved credit: $0 down, 0 payments for 90 days, or 0% APR financing. That’s some real March madness!

Release Your Inner Driver in the 2017 Toyota Corolla

Remember when you got your learner’s permit? Remember the first time you got behind the wheel of a car? And the first time you were finally old enough and experienced enough to get behind the wheel by yourself? Driving was fun back then, providing an undeniable feeling of freedom and possibility. As you get older, and focus more on more on the things you have to do when you get out of the car, the act of driving becomes more humdrum. But in the 2017 Toyota Corolla, driving is fun again. To see for yourself, head in to Keyes Cars today.

Available on the 2017 Toyota Corolla SE, XSE, and the 2017 Toyota Corolla 50th Anniversary Edition, the sport button allows you to switch into Sport Mode with ease. As soon as you push that button, the Engine Control Unit and simulated shift points are adjusted to deliver a sportier ride to an already agile automobile. Available paddle shifters are another great add-on, giving you the ability to shift gears without ever letting go of the steering wheel. With lightning fast gear changes at your fingertips, you can really sink your teeth into the experience of driving. CVTi-S Valvematic technology not only delivers a smoother, more in-control driving experience, it also boosts fuel efficiency so you can stay on the road longer.

We love the look and feel of the 2017 Toyota Corolla. Toyota Corolla SE, XSE, and 2017 Toyota Corolla 50th Anniversary Edition models in particular boast an aggressive, redesigned front end. Standard Bi-LED headlights on all Toyota Corolla models exude style day or night. And the Toyota Corolla is much more than a pretty face. Its sporty design has been tested and honed in a wind tunnel to deliver optimal aerodynamics.

Head in to our dealership near Santa Monica,CA to learn more about the 2017 Toyota Corolla!

Hyundai Enlists Special Effects Artists to Create Incredible Drivers

After a day of helping people find the perfect vehicle at Keyes Cars, we like to put our feet up and watch a little TV. “Face Off” on the Syfy channel is always a good time. The show features special effects makeup artists battling to put together the coolest looks each week for a chance to win a host of great prices, including a brand new Hyundai Veloster. Each week, the artists are given a specific mandate, and earlier this month, that mandate came from the Hyundai brand.

After six rough-and-tumble roadsters cascaded over a hill to face the contestants, the show’s host emerged from a Hyundai Veloster to tell them their task: Using Hyundai’s slogan—“We make things better”—as inspiration, the artists would need to outfit the drivers with looks worthy of their post-apocalyptic vehicles. With that, the drivers were off and running, working spare car parts into their designs to give the drivers looks that would fit nicely in a “Mad Max” movie.

While the Hyundai Veloster may not be the perfect choice for an end-of-the-world battle royale, it’s got you covered for just about everything else. You can head in to our dealership near Beverly Hills, CA to take the 2016 Hyundai Veloster for a spin yourself.  The Hyundai Veloster’s 1.6L gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine is powerful and efficient. The Hyundai Veloster Turbo, R-SPEC, and Rally Edition use the same advanced GDI technology, combined with twin-turbo scroll and best-in-class power to weight ratio, for a satisfying ride with a little extra “oomph.”

Then there’s the modified, sport-tuned front suspension, featuring gas-filled hydraulic monotube shock absorbers. Add in Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS), and you’ve got a sporty, responsive vehicle to hit the streets in.

To unleash your inner driver and “make the morning commute better,” be sure to head in to Keyes Cars today and check out all of our new Hyundai vehicles

Enjoy Peace of Mind in the 2017 Honda Odyssey

If you’re on the hunt for a new minivan to keep your family safe and sound, head in to Keyes Cars today here in Van Nuys, CA. We’ve got a great selection of new vehicles for you to check out, like the 2017 Honda Odyssey. Packed with great features to help you avoid collisions, the Honda Odyssey provides added confidence when you hit the road.

Some of the biggest dangers when you’re driving come from the things you can’t see. That’s why the engineers at Honda have worked hard to give you as complete a picture of your surroundings as possible. The Honda Odyssey features one of the most helpful features we’ve seen: Honda LaneWatch™. With Honda LaneWatch, when you flip on your right turn signal, a small camera displays live video feed on your Intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) screen to reveal nearly four times more than the passenger-side mirror alone. The Blind Spot Information System is another great tool to have, giving you a heads up when it detects a vehicle in your blind spot. And your last set of extra eyes comes in the form of the Rearview Camera with Guidelines, giving you a clear look at what’s behind you from three angles: normal, top-down, and wide.

In the 2017 Honda Odyssey, tell your co-pilot they can take a nap. With advanced features to monitor possible collisions and lane departure, you’ve got all the help you need. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) lets you know immediately if you’re in danger of colliding with the car ahead of you. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) uses a small camera to track lane markings, alerting you when it detects an un-indicated lane departure.

In the Honda Odyssey, you’re in good hands.
