Chevy, Ford Have Most Segment Winners in 2013 Total Value Awards
Although Hyundai doesn’t play the value card today as much as it did in the past, the brand did bring a winning hand to Strategic Vision’s 2013 Total Value Awards. In fact, Hyundai was the top-rated brand in the industry in this year’s Total Value study, which looked to nearly 46,000 drivers for input about new-vehicle value in terms of both present and future expectations.
“Hyundai provides value that customers love with strong styling cues and interior appointments at a terrific price,” said Alexander Edwards, president of the influential automotive consultancy, while Mike O’Brien, vice president of Product and Corporate Planning for Hyundai, added that: “Awards like this from Strategic Vision reflect our hard work and commitment to customer satisfaction and value.”
Hyundai also had the highest-rated vehicle in the study—its 2014 Hyundai Equus flagship sedan—along with three other segment winners. On the other hand, it was Ford and Chevrolet that had the highest number of individual winners, with five each.
