Here at Haddad Hyundai, we're proud to be a Hyundai dealership that offers a beautiful new inventory of award-winning vehicles. This year, Kelley Blue Book has bestowed its Best Buy awards on the 2020 Hyundai Kona, 2020 Hyundai Kona Electric, and the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. Each of these vehicles had to satisfy a number of criteria to be honored with an award. Let's explore what makes them so special.

The Best in Seventeen Categories

The Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards are highly respected in the automotive industry. Kelley Blue Book conducts extensive testing to determine which vehicles are the best buys in several categories. Hyundai swept the floor, wining in the categories of best subcompact SUV, best electric car, and best two-row midsize SUV.

Factors that help determine the award winners range from customer reviews to pricing. According to Mike O'Brien, a vice president for Hyundai, the awards given to the 2020 Kona, 2020 Kona Electric, and 2020 Santa Fe are indicative of Hyundai's commitment to producing vehicles that offer superior value for any car buyer.

Excellence in Exterior Design and Performance

The Hyundai Kona features a sporty look that matches its high level of performance, both factors which earned it its best subcompact SUV title. The Hyundai Kona Electric debuted in 2020 offering 201-horsepower and a 258-mile range. These specs put the Kona Electric at the top of its class, earning it the best electric car title from Kelley Blue Book.

The Hyundai Santa Fe has a few more years under its belt as a popular two-row SUV, churning out impressive performance numbers, a refreshed exterior look, and a spacious, versatile interior. The Hyundai Santa Fe also incorporates the latest technology to improve driver and passenger safety, which all worked together to help it earn the best midsize SUV award this year.
