Erwin Raphael, director of engineering and quality, Hyundai Motor America, has said:
“In one of the most competitive segments within the industry, Sonata places highest in its class. Hyundai is committed to providing customers with high-value vehicles that withstand the test of time. The quality and dependability of our models is important to reassuring owners that we care about their Hyundai experience beyond their initial purchase at the dealership.”
The J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study measures problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year-old (2010 model year) vehicles includes 202 specific problem symptoms grouped into eight major vehicle systems.
The study results include industry insights, model rankings in each of the car and light-truck segments, and full nameplate rankings. Overall dependability is determined by the level of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.
The Hyundai Sonata is a beautifully designed car with high fuel efficiency. The Sonata sets the benchmark for midsize sedans offering sleek design, class-leading interior comfort, functionality and practicality all at an incredible high value.
Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own Award accounts for nearly all expenses of car ownership, including depreciation, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for new models. The awards exist to help shoppers make more informed new-car buying decisions by breaking down typical ownership cost details and naming the brands and models with the lower projected five-year total.
But when your model is such a gorgeous and successful vehicle, there isn’t a need to change.
With Hyundai’s fluidic sculptured design, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata remains the most gorgeous sedan on the market. This year’s model adds a chrome grille, chrome door handles and larger alloy wheels to more trim levels.
The second most fuel efficient model in the world, the 2013 Mitsubishi iMiEV receives 126 mpge city and 112 mpge highway.
The 2013 Nissan Leaf was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
MSN Autos researched and studied what are the most fuel efficient vehicles in America, and on Thursday they submitted the top 37 models.
It should come as no surprise that many of our top models are the most fuel efficient in the nation. And it should come as no surprise the Hyundai, America’s most fuel efficient model, placed four vehicles in the list. Ford had 3 cars on the list. Honda also had 3 cars make the list. Kia and Nissan’s most fuel efficient models were also selected to the list.
