2019 Santa Fe: Redesign of the Year

Shopping for a family-friendly SUV? This year, the newly redesigned 2019 Santa Fe fits the bill better than ever, having snagged the Redesign of the Year award from ALG.

In one of the largest and most competitive segments in the industry, the Santa Fe earned this award for its bolder design language, both inside and out, along with its refined and refreshed safety and technology features.

This bold midsize SUV looks more aggressive than ever, with power to match under the hood: An optional turbocharged 4-cylinder provides 235 horsepower for an energetic drive. With roomy seating for five and more than 71 cubic feet of cargo space, the new Santa Fe is a force to be reckoned with!

2019 Kona: North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™

This subcompact SUV is relatively new to the scene, but it’s drawn attention ever since it was first released last model year. So much so, in fact, that the 2019 Kona and Kona Electric have earned the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™ award from the North American Car, Utility, and Truck of the Year automotive media jury.

It’s the first Hyundai SUV to win this award, a testament to the vehicle’s fun styling, cutting-edge features, and advanced safety tech. From busy city streets to the wide-open highway, there’s no road this SUV can’t handle. The Kona Electric does it quite efficiently, with an EPA-estimated range of 258 miles.

The Hyundai SmartSense suite is packed with available safety features. In the 2019 Kona, Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and High Beam Assist can help you detect and avoid potential accidents on the road.

2019 Sonata: Readers’ Choice Award

Sedans aren’t going out of the game anytime soon, and the 2019 Hyundai Sonata shows why. This midsize car has captured the Reader’s Choice Award from The Detroit News in the “Most for Your Money” category at the 2019 North American International Auto Show.

This car does everything right, from its stylish design to the full slate of standard technology. Advanced features, such as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, come standard for smartphone connectivity, while Qi wireless phone charging and a heated steering wheel are additional convenient amenities.  

Plus, with the option to equip a roaring turbocharged 4-cylinder under the hood, you can enjoy a thrilling drive wherever you go, with a potent 245 horsepower on tap. As Detroit News readers confirm, it all comes at top value to you!
