You do not need to change the oil for the seasons,as the oil is "multigrade" (that means it gets thicker as it gets hotter.)BUT when new, you should use 5/30 and as the car gets older,or uses/burns oil it is my opinion,that it should get a higher (lower sae #)grade of oil to compensate so 5/30 will go to 10/40 if and when you start to use the "thicker" oil is dependant on your cars usage/burn rate.

What kind of motor oil uses

Change engine oil regularly, every 3000miles or 3months, whichever comes first. Make sure to use an API certified SAE 10W30 in Summer and 5W30 in the Winter. If your Hyndai has extensive engine wear, 10W30 is a suitable substitute. You must not use 10W30 if temperatures are 20F and expected to fall.

How much oil and what kind of oil

your owners manual should have something in the index such as fluid capacities that will tell you how much and usually what type too. if not its usually stamped on the oil fill cap. usually is either 10w30 or 5w30 some people choose based on the season of the year. 5w30 is usually better for winter time. 4 cylinder usually 4-4.5 quarts v6 is usually 4.5-5 (all the ones i have owned was 5)
