We’ve known it for a long time and now the awards are agreeing with us! The Hyundai Sonata and Santa Fe have just driven off with more awards, and this time as “Best Midsize Car for the Money” and “Best 3-Row SUV for Money” respectively.
“Sonata and Santa Fe being recognized by trusted site U.S. News & World Report means Hyundai has successfully been able to offer shoppers class-leading safety features, the latest technology, fuel economy and bold design, all at an outstanding value” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Hyundai will continue to innovate to deliver a spectrum of award-winning products that deliver high value and driving experience.”
The awards, “The Best Cars for the Money”, are determined by taking into account both the quality and value data. While the quality is easy to see – with Hyundai it is pretty obvious – the value is measured by looking at the five-year total cost of ownership. Winning the awards means that the vehicle’s quality and value are together top of the list.
The Hyundai Sonata that won the award this year is the seventh generation, and features a more refined shape thanks to the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language that was used in the design process. But it is not only on looks that the Sonata won, the Sonata also featured a stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise and vibration, as well as advanced safety and convenience features.
The award winning Hyundai Santa Fe features an upgraded interior as well as a sportier exterior. With regard to design, the Santa Fe provides optimal performance and comfort and is aimed at families looking for ride comfort and quality. Powering this beauty is a 3.3-liter Lambda II V-6, using gasoline direct injection and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT). On the safety side, the Santa Fe includes retuned suspension, driver’s blind spot mirror, as well as the standard safety equipment that you’ve come to expect from a Hyundai, such as Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control System.
