The 2013 Hyundai Elantra is predicted to retain its value, as is the Hyundai brand overall.
The Hyundai brand keeps growing in value, and the industry experts are taking notice.
As a brand, Hyundai finished second in ALG’s annual Residual Value Awards. ALG’s Residual Value Awards honor the vehicles in each segment that are forecast to retain the highest percentage of MSRP after a three-year period. Award recipients were chosen after a careful evaluation of vehicle criteria, including segment competition, historical vehicle performance and industry trends. This year’s awards are based on 2013 model year vehicles.
The 2013 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year Award short list has been released. These lists of cars and trucks have been edited down from a long list of 45 vehicles that we detailed back in August.
Ford has the most vehicles on this year’s short list, with 3 combined. Nissan’s most innovated year ever is off to a great start, as they have two vehicles in the running.
Soon enough the jurors will edit this list down further to three finalists that will be announced at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2013.
