Elantra, Sonata, and Genesis Recognized as Top Picks for 2012
COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 10, 2012 – Three 2012 Hyundai models, Elantra, Sonata, and Genesis earned top recommendations from Vehix’s 2012 New Car Buying Guides. Elantra was selected as the number one pick for Sedans Under $20,000, Sonata was chosen as the number two choice for Sedans Under $30,000, and Genesis was acknowledged as the number two recommendation for Sedans Over $30,000.
“Choosing a Hyundai is no longer just about getting a great warranty. It’s about getting a great car,” said Michael Waterman, Executive Editor, Vehix. “The Elantra, Sonata and Genesis are attractive vehicles with top safety ratings, comfortable interiors and impressive features. For 2012, Hyundai offers truly compelling choices for car buyers.”
Vehix editors started with more than 300 models in 12 categories. Vehicles were then placed within logical pricing segments in each category and the Vehix editorial team voted based on their experiences with and opinions of the contenders. The results were 12 guides with practical and passionate advice and opinions about 75 high-quality vehicles.

“Having three Hyundai models recognized as top picks for 2012 by Vehix demonstrates our continued commitment to excellence in quality, value and design for all of the vehicles in the Hyundai lineup,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “The Elantra, Sonata, and Genesis are all prime examples of models that not only meet but exceed customer expectations in safety and performance.”
With 40 MPG highway, “class-above” interior roominess, and a starting price of $15,195 the 2012 Elantra delivers exceptional value. The award-winning Elantra continues to combat high gas prices in 2012 by adding an ActiveECO System that modifies engine and transmission control to smooth out throttle response and increase real-world fuel economy by up to seven percent. In addition, the 2012 Elantra has added several new convenience features to enhance passenger comfort.
The award-winning Hyundai Sonata continues to be a huge hit thanks to Fluidic Sculpture design, impressive fuel efficiency (24 mpg city/35 mpg estimated highway), advanced technology and overall value. For the 2012 model year, Sonata enters with even more safety, technology and convenience offerings including Blue Link, HD Radio Technology and new seven-inch touch-screen navigation. Add it all up and there’s a reason why Sonata is one of the most shopped cars in the U.S.
Hyundai’s award-winning Genesis sedan continues its segment leadership in 2012 with exterior design improvements, new direct injection technology for its Lambda V6 engine, new eight-speed automatic transmissions, and enhanced chassis tuning. In addition, a new 5.0-liter direct injection V8 engine is now available exclusively with the 5.0 R-Spec model, which includes unique 19-inch machined-finish alloy wheels, optional Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position summer performance tires and sport-tuned transmission, suspension and steering calibrations for exhilarating vehicle dynamics.
