The 2015 Hyundai Sonata was named the Best Midsize Car for the Money and the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe was named the Best 3-Row SUV for the Money in 2015 by U.S. News & World Report.
‘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.
In a statement issued on Wednesday in Accra and copied to the BUSINESS GUIDE, he said , ‘Hyundai will continue to innovate to deliver a spectrum of award-winning products that deliver high value and driving experience.’
The Best Cars for the Money methodology combines quality and value data into a composite score.
Within each of the 21 categories, the vehicle with the highest score is named the Best Car for the Money in that category. Quality is measured by the overall score achieved in the U.S. News car rankings at the time the awards are published. Value is measured by five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle at the time the awards are published.
The all-new seventh-generation 2015 Sonata offers a more refined look through a new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise, vibration and harshness and advanced safety and convenience features.
Sonata truly democratizes the premium design and convenient technology of the Genesis sedan for the mid-size class.
The 2015 Santa Fe features an upgraded interior and sportier exterior, designed to provide optimal performance and comfort for families.
It continues to offer front or all-wheel drive and is equipped with the acclaimed 3.3-liter Lambda II V-6, using gasoline direct injection and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT).
Upgraded safety features for the 2015 model also include retuned suspension enhancements and a driver’s blind spot mirror, along with standard safety equipment such as Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System.
