A Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy represents the finest value and attributes in each respective class.

“We appreciate these prestigious product recognitions by Consumer Guide,” said Ricky Lao, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor North America. “Receiving five Best Buy product awards is a true testament to the passion and dedication of our designers, engineers and the entire Hyundai team that helped bring these impressive products to market.”

According to Consumer Guide Publisher Tom Appel, “A vehicle does not become a Best Buy based solely on objective ratings. It also needs to distinguish itself as being a good economic choice compared to others in the class. Hyundai's five 2022 Best Buy’s showing is especially impressive as the brand is represented both among entry-level vehicles and among near-luxury crossovers."
