For the11th year in a row, the Brand Keys Customer Loyalty and Engagement Index found that Hyundai inspires the greatest customer loyalty in the auto industry. For over a decade, Hyundai customers have been most likely to buy another Hyundai vehicle rather than switch brands.

5-Year Cost to Own Awards

The 2020 Elantra, Santa Fe, and Venue all won their categories in the Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, which measure cost of ownership over the first five years, including insurance costs, maintenance and repairs, fuel, and depreciation. KBB also named the Hyundai Kona and Kona Electric the Best Buy for the Subcompact SUV and Electric segments.

MotorWeek Driver’s Choice

In its annual Driver’s Choice Awards, MotorWeek awarded the 2020 Sonata the title of Best Family Sedan, and the Hyundai Palisade was named the Best Large Utility Vehicle. These awards are all about finding the vehicles that drivers want to own, not just the flashiest ones.

Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Kona Bring Home KBB.com Awards

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.
