Hyundai News

Hyundai is one of two Korean brands competing in the U.S. market. Imports to the U.S. started in 1986 with one model and have expanded to over 15 models today which include hybrids, plug-in hybrids, all-electric and fuel cell electric vehicles. Today, over half of the Hyundais sold in the U.S. are American made.

Kia, the brand’s Korean counterpart, offers a sportier lineup while Hyundai presents a more premium one with models like the Palisade, Sonata, and Santa Fe.

In the past, many associated the Hyundai brand with affordability and lower build quality. However, that is not the case today. Although still affordable, Hyundai vehicles now have the build quality, safety, technology, and design expertise that rivals the best in the industry.

Popular models include the Elantra and Sonata (also offered in hybrid and plug-in hybrid) sedans and the Tucson and Santa Fe SUVs. The Venue, Kona, and Palisade SUVs are the latest additions to the lineup. Other models include the fun-to-drive Veloster and Elantra GT, the efficient Ioniq models (hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and EV), the little Accent sedan, the Santa Fe XL, and the only fuel cell electric SUV on the market, the Nexo.
