Once known for its low-priced cars and lengthy warranty, Hyundai has surged in recent years to become a top competitor in the mainstream vehicle market with excellent styling, quality and fuel economy. Hyundai first started selling cars in the U.S. in 1986, and now it builds some of its most popular models here. Hyundai is a part of the Hyundai Motor Group, which includes Kia, and it is one of the top-selling automakers when it comes to global volume.
Building on its affordability, the Hyundai Accent is still one of the lowest-priced cars in the U.S., and seven out of the brand’s 10 nameplates start at or under the mid-$20,000 range. When it comes to cars, the Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Sonata and Hyundai Azera are all proven sedans, while the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and Hyundai Veloster bring a little excitement and diversity to the lineup. The Hyundai Genesis and Hyundai Equus are shining examples of the level of refinement available from Hyundai, and these models will soon shine on their own as a part of the all-new, luxury-minded Genesis Motors that Hyundai is preparing to spin off from the rest of the brand in the same way that Honda, Toyota and Nissan all created luxury brands in the 1980s.
Like many other mainstream automakers, Hyundai’s crossover market is a key to the brand’s growth. The Hyundai Tucson was recently redesigned to compete in the red-hot compact crossover segment, and the mid-size Hyundai Santa Fe can now attract more buyers with the two-row, five-passenger Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the three-row, seven-passenger Hyundai Santa Fe.
The majority of Hyundai models have been redesigned in recent years, but the brand’s dedication to expanding fuel-efficient technology is another way Hyundai is staying fresh. In addition to advanced hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, Hyundai now offers hydrogen fuel cell technology on the limited-availability Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell. Hyundai’s current 10-car lineup ranges in price from the $14,745 Hyundai Accent to the flagship of the brand, the $61,500 Hyundai Equus.
