Hyundai Ioniq, Accent earn Car and Driver Editors’ Choice recognition
As a Hyundai dealership, we naturally have a lot of great things to say about Hyundai vehicles. Sure, we may be a little partial toward them, but we’re not alone in our admiration for this incredible vehicle lineup. Over the past few years, Hyundai has accumulated plenty of awards from automotive experts around the world. Most recently, both the all-new Hyundai Ioniq and Hyundai Accent earned Car and Driver Editors’ Choice awards.
“Car and Driver is one of the most trusted names in automotive journalism,” said Mike O’Brien, Hyundai of America’s VP of Product, Corporate, and Digital Planning. “We’re honored to have the Ioniq and Accent included in their Editor’s Choice picks.”
How did the Hyundai Ioniq and Accent earn recognitions from Car and Driver?
Every year, Car and Driver tests and evaluates hundreds of vehicles based on a number of measurable criteria like performance and value, but also the subjective desirability as determined by its staff.
Car and Driver loves the Hyundai Ioniq for many reasons, but it specifically notes it being “quicker, cheaper, and better-looking than a Prius, and equally efficient.”
That’s certainly intriguing for hybrid shoppers, as the Prius has long set the bar in this class. The Ioniq shares many design characteristics with the handsome Hyundai Elantra. Available as a traditional hybrid, an EV, and a plug-in hybrid, there are flavors of this exceptional new vehicle for any driver looking to go green and significantly reduce their fuel consumption.
The economy car class isn’t known for being flashy, but Car and Driver notes the Accent is better equipped and more sophisticated than its competition. In addition to its aesthetic maturity, the Accent features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, automatic climate control, and many other upscale features you’d be hard pressed to find in other cars in this segment.
