PRLog - Sep. 11, 2012 - TINLEY PARK, Ill. -- Hyundai invests in their drivers and passengers by making their vehicles some of the safest on the road. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has confirmed their confidence in Hyundai vehicles by recognizing Hyundai as having made 7 Top Safety Picks for 2012 — one of the most coveted awards in the automotive industry. The standout models are the:
Family Hyundai Tinley Park.
• Santa Fe
To earn such a designation, Hyundai made sure that these cars and SUVs had superior performance when it came to high-speed frontal crash tests, rollover evaluations, and side-impact ratings. Family Hyundai is proud to celebrate this achievement, and they have many of these vehicles in stock now for drivers at their Tinley Park dealership.
The 2012 Hyundai Elantra was also named one of the 10 Best Green Cars for 2012 by Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com. This is the second consecutive year it has been singled out for achieving over 40 mpg highway in the non-hybrid category thanks to its fuel-efficient 4-cylinder engine. There are many other factors that go into earning this distinction, but it's worth noting that the Accent, Sonata Hybrid, and the Veloster are also designed to reach the 40 mpg mark.
Hyundai vehicles also earned 4 “Best Value in America” Awards issued by Vincentric in 2012. Receiving top honors in the Crossover Compact Entry-Level category for the second year in a row was the Tucson, and it was joined by the Accent, Elantra, and Genesis Coupe. Vincentric is a leading automotive data compilation and analysis firm; they measured eight different cost factors to determine the award recipients. The categories are:
• Opportunity cost
• State fees.
This award recognizes which vehicles had lower-than-expected ownership costs for each specific market segment. All 50 states and Washington D.C. were included in their data pool, and they use a wide range of insurance profiles and mileage intervals for their study.
Family Hyundai is proud to represent an automaker that’s committed to excellence throughout the lineup. To view or schedule a test drive in one of these award-winning vehicles, visit Family Hyundai at 8101 W 159th Street in Tinley Park, IL.
