For the past 21 years, J.D. Power has analyzed the emotional attachment and level of excitement that car owners have for their vehicles across 77 separate attributes. These attributes include things such as how a person feels as he or she is getting into the driver’s seat and how much power an individual feels when the person accelerates. J.D. Power rates vehicles and brands using a 1,000-point scale to determine which automobiles will receive its Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout, or APEAL, awards in their respective classes.
Everyone at our Hyundai dealership in Calgary, AB is thrilled to tell you that the 2016 Hyundai Tucson won this year’s J.D. Power APEAL award in the small SUV category of vehicles. The Hyundai Tucson outdid its competitors and shined exceptionally bright in the following areas during its evaluation:
- Fuel Economy
- Audio, Communication, Entertainment, and Navigation
Available in four attractive trims, the Hyundai Tucson is a five-passenger crossover SUV that has plenty to offer. Even the base trim comes with a bevy of standard features which include 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, a rear spoiler, a trip computer, and stain resistant upholstery. The vehicle also has Bluetooth and audio connectivity, a five-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, and a sound system that has six speakers, a CD player, a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack, and satellite radio.
In addition to having plenty of standard and available features, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson has been recognized as one of the safest vehicles in its class. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Hyundai Tucson its Top Safety Pick+ rating, the highest rating possible. This means the compact SUV earned top marks in crashworthiness tests performed by the IIHS and the vehicle’s front crash prevention system earned a score of “advanced” or “superior.”
