If there is one word to sum up Hyundai’s lineup, it would likely be “value,” and that reputation helped the automaker add to its impressive list of ALG Residual Value Awards last week.
ALG, a consulting services firm for the automotive industry, named the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Hyundai Accent the winners of their respective classes – the Santa Fe Sport for the midsize utility vehicle segment and the Accent for the subcompact car segment.
Here’s what Eric Lyman, vice president of editorial at ALG, had to say about Hyundai:
“The Accent and Santa Fe Sport are great examples of how the brand’s strong emphasis on feature content and value for the money helps avoid the use of purchase incentives, bolstering resale values and keeping owners happy when it comes time to sell their vehicles.”
Now in their 14th year, ALG Residual Value awards are selected based on which vehicle in its segment retains a worth that is closer to its original MSRP. Here’s a list of Hyundai models that have won since 2011:
- Santa Fe Sport – midsize utility vehicle (2013, 2012)
- Accent – subcompact car (2013)
- Elantra – compact car (2012, 2011)
- Azera – midsize luxury car (2012)
