COSTA MESA, Calif., March 15, 2012 – Four Hyundai models, Accent, Elantra, Genesis Coupe and Tucson earned the distinction of “Best Value in America” for 2012 from Vincentric, an automotive data compilation and analysis firm. Tucson earned top honors in the Crossover Compact Entry-Level category for the second year in a row. Accent won the award in the Subcompact category, Elantra in the Compact Sedan category and Genesis Coupe in the Mid-Size Coupe 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.”
