2016 Hyundai Genesis and Sonata Honored With “Best Bet” Awards


The Hyundai Sonata and Hyundai Genesis were recent winners of The Car Book's 2016 "Best Bet" Awards, demonstrating that Hyundai quality is at the top of its game. "Best Bet" has been recognizing vehicles that provide a superior response to American consumer performance and safety needs for 36 years, and Hyundai is proud to have received this prestigious distinction.

Decision-Making Process

The Car Book is considered an industry standard for its guidance in helping American car buyers evaluate and make purchase decisions. The company analyzes nine different safety and service categories to come up with its final rankings. The selected areas of evaluation show a heavy emphasis on safety capabilities: safety features, crash tests, rollover risk, preventative maintenance, costs of repairs, fuel efficiency, warranty coverage, consumer complaints, and insurance issues. In fact, these are the very areas that have the greatest impact on the cost of owning and insuring your vehicle.

2016 Genesis

The 2016 Genesis is loaded with advanced equipment for safety prevention and responsiveness. Some of the available technology includes Lane Change Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Electronic Stability Control, Brake Assist, and Electronic Brake Distribution. Not only does it also contain a rearview camera, but the Genesis features Sensory Surround Safety Technologies which are focused on the safety of everyone occupying the vehicle, as well as driver alertness. These technologies also have the ability to look out for the safety of surrounding drivers.

2016 Sonata

The 2016 Sonata is also noteworthy for its safety effectiveness. It includes additional safety capabilities that previous models did not have. This year's Sonata makes Automatic Emergency Braking available to models that were previously equipped with Forward Collision Warning. Vehicle Stability Management with Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System, extensive airbag protection, and anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution are just a few of the standard features on the 2016 Sonata.
