The Hyundai Reina is currently the smallest offering in the brand’s Philippine lineup yet packs big surprises. Frankly, the pint-sized sedan does seem like plain vanilla, though we’re happy to report that it does come with all the things you’ll need for you and your passengers. You are not going to get any of those fancy gizmos but it does stand strong in terms of practicality. With that said, allow us to tell you why the Hyundai Reina is qualified to be your next daily driver.
It looks like a shrunken Hyundai Accent
Like some of its larger stablemates, the Hyundai Reina sports the brand’s fluidic sculpture design language. Therefore, instead of sharp angles, the car then flaunts its curvaceous body lines which do add character to it. Upon first glance, some would even mistake it for an Accent given the close resemblance of its frontend, and that’s a good thing, as its bigger brother also has the good looks that should age gracefully over time. It’s not as flashy and overdressed as some of its competitors, but the Hyundai Reina is still a pretty face wrapped in simple yet attractive clothing.
It’s got an intuitive cabin
Car interiors have already evolved over the years, some would even get those fancy inserts and sophisticated layout which does serve as a desirable proposition for many. However, some car manufacturers still continue producing some simple yet well-laid-out interiors on their current models, and believe it or not, some drivers would prefer that. Mainly because the simpler the layout, the less the confusions are to be experienced.
With the case of the Reina, you’d expect the controls at their rightful places, from the radio which gets physical buttons to the old-fashioned air conditioning controls which are easy to use and work perfectly fine. Overall, the Hyundai Reina has a simple, well-laid-out cabin that doesn’t wow you, though it doesn’t disappoint as well, most importantly, it’s intuitive and easy to use.
Interior space is good too
Aside from its intuitive dashboard layout, the Hyundai Reina also boasts in terms of cabin space. Average-sized adults won’t be having a problem fitting inside the car. Aside from passengers, the Reina also gives you massive trunk space for precious stuff, be it a basket, bag, or any other essentials that will be used for your adventure.
Standing strong in terms of fuel-efficiency
One of the main considerations in getting a brand new car is its fuel-efficiency, so the question is how thrifty is the Hyundai Reina when it comes to fuel? Well, we’re happy to report that its 1.4-liter gasoline engine mated to a 5-speed manual was able to return 10.8 km/L during heavy city traffic. Speeding up to about 60 km/h then returned 14.3 km/L, while a one-hour drive on the highway at 90 km/h registered a whopping 23.8 km/L. Now, those are some economical figures, with that, the Reina is indeed one fuel-efficient small car.
You and your passengers’ safety is guaranteed
Of course, Hyundai didn’t forget to reinforce this car with the much-needed set of safety features. It doesn’t get any autonomous driving equipment, but it does give you the things you’ll be needing in case of unfortunate encounters. Standard safety and security features on the Hyundai Reina include dual-front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), ISOFIX child seat anchors, and a seatbelt reminder for the driver.
