If you’re shopping for a new or used car, you know that the guides at Kelley Blue Book are essential research tools. This year, the Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Kona – both the traditional and electric versions – got the revered publication’s stamp of approval at the 2020 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards.
“It is an honor to receive Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards for the Kona, Kona Electric and Santa Fe, demonstrating Hyundai’s commitment to developing a range of product offerings that deliver great customer value,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, product, corporate and digital planning for Hyundai Motor America.
Considering that the Hyundai Santa Fe is the brand’s best-selling SUV in the U.S., it’s not surprising that it has fans in the media. It drove home with the award for Best 2-Row Midsize SUV. The newer Hyundai Kona won in the Best Subcompact SUV category, and the 2020 Kona Electric conquered the general Best Electric Car segment.
It’s not easy to win a KBB.com award. The site’s team tests vehicles over a year period, watches customer reviews, and examines its signature 5-Year Cost to Own numbers to determine which new models are the best choice for American drivers. At the beginning of the process, analysts were looking at more than 300 cars, and then they narrowed the list down to a few dozen options before choosing the final Best Buys for 16 segments.
