Back in 2006, former BMW designer Thomas Bürkle joined Hyundai as the company’s head of design department.
One of the top-selling Hyundai models that Bürkle has helped redesign is the Santa Fe SUV. There are four
model trims to choose from and options galore. The exterior of the Santa Fe sports a new fascia, taillights
and dual chrome exhaust tips. It also has a hands-free automatic liftgate.
Another standout model is the Hyundai Genesis. You might also notice some stylish Euro-inspired design
elements at pay with the Genesis, as well. It's Hyundai's premiere luxury sedan. Yet, the MSRP comes in
significantly lower than it's European counterparts. The Hyundai Genesis interior has leather and wood
accents everywhere you look with well-thought-out dashboard features. In addition to affordable luxury, you
also get 3 years of Sirius XM radio, 24/7 roadside assistance and automatic updates to the onboard
Hyundai vehicles are well-known for their dependability over time and uncompromising safety features. The
Tuscon crossover SUV is at the front of the category in reliability. It's an IIHS top safety pick and was
given a 5 star rating from the NHTSA. Later models of the Tuscon come equipped with automatic Lane Departure
Warnings, standard rear cameras, and Blind Spot Detection systems. The Hyundai Elantra is another standout
vehicle in terms of reliability. It has optional heated front and rear seats. That options isn't available
on the Toyota Corolla or the Ford Focus. The Elantra also allows you to link your smart phone apps into the
car's onboard interface so your hands stay on the wheel and your eyes stay on the road.
Hyundai vehicles offer some of the best fuel economy on the market. As one of the first companies to offer
alternative fuel vehicles, Hyundai has continued the tradition with the Ioniq Hybrid. The Ioniq boasts a
whopping 690 mile range and 58 miles per gallon. Hyundai isn't just about fuel economy either. The Elantra
GT Sport is a driver's dream. It has an available 1.6 Liter turbo engine that gets 201 horsepower and 195
ft. lbs. of torque. The standard 6-speed manual transmission shifts seamlessly and you can also opt for
paddle shifters to allow for a more thrilling driving experience.
