Four New Hyundai Models Earn "Best Value in America" Awards from Vincentric

Every year, the automotive data compilation and analysis firm, Vincentric gives out its "Best Value in America" awards. More than just a measurement of the upfront price tag that many consumers are presented with when taking out a car loan or lease, the "Best Value in America" awards are an exploration of many aspects that factor into the total cost of ownership for a vehicle. These include depreciation rate, fuel economy, average insurance premium, opportunity cost, financing, maintenance costs, taxes and state fees, and even repairs that may come up.

And how did Hyundai do in the 2012 "Best Value in America" awards? Quite well. In fact, the South Korean automaker managed to take home top honors for four vehicles. The 2012 Hyundai Accent bested the subcompact segment. Meanwhile, the 2012 Hyundai Elantra won in the compact category. The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe impressed the judges the most in the mid-size coupe category. And lastly, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson swept the competition in the crossover compact entry-level category.

"Hyundai's four Vincentric Best Value in America winners reflect the gains Hyundai has shown over the past several years in terms of sales, styling, and overall market acceptance," said David Wurster, president, Vincentric. "This creates strong residual values, which in turn reduces depreciation cost, thereby lowering total cost of ownership for Hyundai vehicles."1

In other words, the benefits of winning the 2012 "Best Value in America" have yet to truly even be realized within the new Hyundai lineup.
