“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” – Elizabeth Barrett Browning
There are millions of satisfied buyers in America who love their Hyundai vehicles. Hyundai recently achieved an important U.S. sales milestone, having sold 10 million cars since the first Hyundai was introduced to America in 1986. Now that’s what we call a lot of love.
Of course, the holidays are a season to celebrate love and joy. And there is plenty to love about the new 2015 and 2016 Hyundai vehicles available at Jim Hudson Hyundai in Columbia, SC. So in the spirit of the classic holiday song “The 12 Days of Christmas,” we present 12 reasons to love a new Hyundai.
1. You’ll Love the Way a Hyundai Looks
No doubt about it, today’s new Hyundai cars are some of the best looking vehicles on the road. Hyundai vehicles feature sleek, modern, and contemporary aerodynamic styling that can’t be missed. Fluid design and dynamic contours shape Hyundai’s bold silhouettes. We call our nature-inspired design “Fluidic Sculpture.” It’s a design philosophy born from our natural surroundings. Mother Nature inspires us so we can inspire you.
2. You’ll Love How a Hyundai Performs
Our global team of Hyundai engineers are passionate about performance. Powertrain efficiency, smooth power for passing and merging, and advanced Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) take performance to a new level. In fact, Hyundai’s family of engines have been named “Ward’s 10 Best Engines” list four times. That’s not surprising, considering that Hyundai tests their engines to the max redline for 300 straight hours.
3. You’ll Appreciate the Fuel Economy
Everybody talks a good game when it comes to fuel economy. Hyundai not only “talks the talk,” but also “walks the walk,” when it comes to building some of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in automotive history. Hyundai’s impressive goal is to have a fleet-wide average of 54.5 mpg by 2025. This lofty aspiration is achievable thanks to Hyundai’s innovative eco-friendly collection of vehicles.
Hyundai’s Eco-Technology Research Institute employs some of the brightest minds to imagine, design, and engineer the next generation of low-emission, fuel-efficient vehicles. Advancements such as the groundbreaking Tucson Fuel Cell vehicle and Hyundai’s first hybrids, the all-new Sonata Hybrid and Sonata Hybrid Plug-In, demonstrate this commitment. The Sonata Plug-In can go up to a class-leading 27 miles on pure electrical power. Switch to the plug-In’s peppy gasoline engine for an amazing 600 miles combined gas/electric range. Now that’s something to cheer about!
4. You’ll Appreciate the Quality
Hyundai sets the bar high when it comes to quality. No cutting corners or expedient solutions. Each and every Hyundai is tested in the world’s most extreme conditions. From a paint job that defies corrosion, to the unique “Recover Clear” that helps scratches heal, to a meticulous attention to every detail like the fit and finish of body panels, every Hyundai comes as close to perfection as we can make it. But what makes each Hyundai special are the people behind the process. Hyundai’s dedicated team of designers, engineers, and the folks on the production line have one goal: to make your Hyundai the best Hyundai ever.
5. You’ll Adore the High-Tech Features
Technology drives every facet of our modern life. From smartphones and tablets to social media, our world revolves around the latest “gotta have it” innovations. Today’s Hyundai cars take technology to a whole new level. Connect, communicate, entertain, and engage in the social media universe like never before. Whether via touchscreen or voice commands, Hyundai lets you control a dizzying array of technological wonders designed to make your life easier. Take Android Auto™, for example. This latest addition to Hyundai’s formidable suite of technology features transforms your driving experience. Connect to your smartphone and put a world of advanced features at your fingertips. Make calls, manage your playlists, get turn-by-turn navigation, make and receive calls, and much more.
Hyundai’s exclusive BlueLink app takes technology further. Imagine being able to access your Hyundai from your smartphone to remotely lock or unlock your doors. You can even remotely start or stop your Hyundai, set the temperature, and locate your Hyundai in the unfortunate event that it’s stolen. All in one powerful, versatile app. There’s even a BlueLink app for the Apple Watch™. Plug into tomorrow and stay ahead of the technology game with BlueLink.
6. You’ll Love Feeling Safe and Secure
It’s a fact that Hyundai cars and SUVs offer great style, performance, and fuel economy. But there’s nothing more important than keeping you and your family safe and secure. Hyundai is proud to be at ior near the top of virtually every major safety list. With many models achieving IIHS Top Safety Pick ratings and the Hyundai brand earning a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, Hyundai vehicles are some of the safest you can buy.
Some of the many standard and available active safety features you’ll find include Blind Spot Detection, Forward-Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Change Assist, Smart Cruise Control, and a rear backup camera.
7. You’ll Feel Great About Our Warranty
Our Hyundai Assurance is simply America’s Best Warranty. And with good reason. Hyundai proudly stands behind every car it builds with an industry-leading 10-year/100,000 mile limited warranty. But that’s just the beginning. You also receive five years of unlimited 24/7 roadside assistance, as well as free multi-point inspections by factory-trained Hyundai technicians. We also take care of your investment with high-quality Hyundai OEM parts, and a Car Care mobile app that lets you schedule appointments, contact roadside assistance, access reference guides, and more with the touch of a finger. Now that’s what we call total coverage that can’t be beaten.
8. You’ll Salute Our American-Made Heritage
Hyundai proudly builds many of its cars right here in the U.S.A., investing more than $7 billion in the American economy. That translates to more than 94,000 well-paying jobs for our hard-working team of Americans. We have three facilities in the U.S. Our California Design and Research Center and Proving Grounds leads the way when it comes to innovation. Our Michigan Engineering Facility is located in the heart of where the American automobile was born. But our crown jewel is our $1.1 billion state-of-the-art manufacturing facility outside of Montgomery, Alabama. Recognized as one of the most advanced and high-quality automotive manufacturing plants in the world, this remarkable facility contributes more than $3.8 billion to Alabama’s economy, employing more than 2,700 workers. We’re proud to say “Made in America,” and we hope you are, too.
9. You’ll Love The Choices
When you are shopping for a new car, you want choices that fit your lifestyle, your personality, and your budget. Hyundai delivers with more than 13 models, ranging from the fuel-efficient Hyundai Accent, the well-equipped Hyundai Elantra, the sleek and stunning Hyundai Sonata, and the supremely versatile Hyundai Santa Fe to the sporty Hyundai Veloster and the ultra-deluxe Hyundai Genesis and Hyundai Equus. From hybrids to performance-bred models, you’ll also appreciate the wide range of trim levels that let you make your Hyundai uniquely your own.
10. You’ll Be Happy About the Value
We’ve established that Hyundais are fantastic cars. But you’ll also appreciate the exceptional value that not only stretches your dollar further but buys you a vehicle with features and styling that costs thousands less when compared to other brands. From the thrifty 2016 Accent at a starting MSRP of just $14,745 to the Sonata’s surprisingly low $21,750 MSRP to the Tucson’s affordable $22,700 MSRP, there’s a Hyundai that will fit both your budget and your aspirations.
11. You’ll Applaud Our Social Responsibility
Hyundai is more than just an automotive company; it’s a neighbor that’s actively engaged in local communities. For example, Hyundai’s “Hope On Wheels®” initiative has raised more than $100 million to help fight childhood cancer. We’re involved in the communities we serve, joining hands to build homes through Habitat for Humanity, help people with disabilities, provide winter coats for Detroit school children, contribute to the Special Olympics, and lend a hand to the Red Cross when disaster strikes. We’re proud to be good neighbors and good corporate citizens because we care.
12. You’ll Love The Way You Feel
When it’s all said and done, it’s about the intangibles. Get behind the wheel of a new Hyundai and it becomes much more than the sum of its parts. Start the engine, head out on the highway and you’ll know you’re driving something special. Your Hyundai is more than just a car; it’s a part of who you are.
