Hyundai Reina 2019 Review in Great Detail

2019 Hyundai Reina Exterior: Remain Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0

Let’s start with the 2019 Reina's exterior styling. In advance, it follows Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, putting on a descend grille with a dark plastic framework. The 14-inch wheels are steel, but they have wheel covers and the front brakes are discs.

As a lower-class vehicle, the Reina does not have cumbersome exterior details like chrome. Nonetheless, a plus for Reina is the patterned intake on the lower lip. Reina has also completely kept up with today's modern cars, with fake vents in the head instead of fog lights. With a pretty front, Hyundai Reina also deserves to be an excellent representative of the Hyundai brand, although some people may underrate it.

Overall, the appearance of the 2019 Reina is completely acceptable and highly appreciated. With simplicity from the Hyundai Accent, the Reina does not surprise its exterior but we should still expect the new interface and technologies that Hyundai Reina brings to users.

2019 Hyundai Reina Interior: Plastic but look not plastic

The Reina's inside looks very modern. Plastic material familiar to today's entry-level cars, however, most of the Hyundai Reina interior panels are coated as such but they don't feel cheap at all. We especially preferred a portion of the subtleties they consolidated, for example, the A/C vents, the spotless, and firm dashboard. As for the steering wheel itself, it feels bulky but comfortable enough for both long and short drives. 

Moreover, Hyundai Reina owns a sizable storage compartment of about 415 liters. You can comfortably pack things in the trunk without worrying about the lack of space. However, one downside of the 2019 Reina is that the interior can be tight. For tall people, this is a bit uncomfortable when they are inside the car.

2019 Hyundai Reina Technology

With a car at the entry-level sedan, the technology of Hyundai Reina completely exceeded expectations. The car has an automatic door lock and a 2.8 inch LCD trip meter that can show how fast the car is going and there also a number of driving modes and a handy little device that lets you know when to shift gears.

But as reckoned, infotainment features only have a simple 1-DIN FM/AM radio with USB port. Besides, if you want an outsourced 9-inch Android touchscreen head unit from Hyundai dealers, you have to pay about Php 28,000.

2019 Hyundai Reina Performance: 1.4 liters Kappa MPI Inline-4 gasoline engine

Under the engine bay, the 2019 Hyundai Reina has the standard 1.4-liter Kappa MPI Inline-4 gasoline engine, which is equipped with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic transmission. With a capacity of 94 horsepower and 132 Nm of torque, Reina seems a bit inferior to the Accent. In fact, the 2019 Reina actually runs quieter than its older brother and is actually more economical as it can use lower octane fuel.

In terms of handling situations, the Hyundai Reina moves quite subtly on narrow turns and the steering on is actually very responsive even through tight turns. The suspension, in any case, can at times feel to be hardened. For some people, the 2019 Reina is appreciated for the stiffness that can be attributed to the sportiness of the car but it can also cause discomfort for some other drivers.

It is noticeable about its relatively slow automatic gearbox, which tends to take a second or two to produce power. It's often seemingly "sleeps" from the first gear that can be very stressful to the car, particularly if you're driving around town as you really need to mash down the accelerator.
