“These four performance awards demonstrate Hyundai’s commitment to making vehicles that meet the unique needs of customers and deliver exceptional efficiency, quality, value, and technology.” – Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America
We at Preston Automotive Group are proud to say that the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, and the 2019 Hyundai Kona have all earned Performance Awards from the Automotive Science Group (ASG). These awards in their respective categories came from ASG, a company that reviews a model’s environmental, economic, and social impact. The Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in took over the full-size car segment, earning the ASG Best All-Around Performance and Best Environmental Performance awards in that category. This is due to the fact that the Ioniq Plug-in has the smallest carbon footprint in the entire class. It also received Best 5 All-Around Performance for this incredible feat.
The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid also earned a Best 5 All-Around Performance Award for the same reason, dominating an SUV segment that has over 400 other vehicles. The Santa Fe also earned this award in the same category. When it comes to owning an SUV that you can rely on, you can see that the Hyundai brand has you covered.
The Hyundai Kona earned a Best Economic Performance for 2019 mini crossover models. The Kona has a cost-to-own that is 27% less over the course of the first 6.5 years of ownership when you compare it to competitors. Come to Preston Hyundai today, and test drive these models so you can experience this elite performance for yourself.
ASG uses a data-driven assessment to analyze the social, economic, and environmental impact of vehicles. They examine a vehicle over the course of an entire life cycle using Automotive Performance Index™. This system works off a combination of conventional vehicle specs, along with economic, environmental, and social performance indicators. The team at Preston Hyundai is incredibly proud that these vehicles earned these great awards, and we can’t wait to show off these award-winning models to our customers.
