Despite a few recent hiccups, Hyundai continues to extend its reputation for delivering high-value products, most recently seeing two vehicles—the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT and 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport—earn recognition from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance as two of the “10 Best Values in New Car Models, 2013.”
The honors are based on a comprehensive analysis of vehicle value, safety, fuel-efficiency, passenger room, and cargo room, as well as driving impressions of each entry. Kiplinger’s then sorts the data to provide both a top-10 list for vehicles making their debuts during the 2013 model year.
And note: While the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT is batting leadoff for this year’s New Car team, capturing the value crown in the “Cars under $20,000” category, it was the Blue Oval with the most players on the squad overall, with three: The 2013 Ford Fusion, 2013 Ford C-MAX and 2013 Ford Escape.
Naturally, a quick look at this year’s award-winners, broken out by automaker, can be found below.
