About Hyundai

Founded in 1967 and with headquarters in Seoul, South Korea, Hyundai is one of the largest vehicle manufacturers in the world. Today, Hyundai is primarily known for its selection of sedans and SUVs, though the brand has delved into the luxury market with its branch-off Genesis label. In recent years, Hyundai has also released two all-electric vehicles and many hybrid versions of their most popular models.

The midsize Hyundai Sonata sedan is one of the company's top sellers, offering a spacious ride for up to five people and such standard equipment as a 2.4L four-cylinder engine at 185 hp (2017 model year), 16-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, and Bluetooth® connectivity. Like many of Hyundai's more popular models, the Sonata is also offered with a hybrid engine.

The Hyundai Tucson is the automaker's compact crossover SUV offering, boasting a roomy interior and a 2.0L four-cylinder base engine at 164 hp in its 2018 model year. Other standard equipment on the 2018 Tucson includes stain-resistant upholstery, a five-inch touchscreen interface, and a six-speaker sound system. The Tucson is also available with optional all-wheel drive for additional traction and control on any terrain.

The Hyundai Genesis was the automaker's first attempt at a luxury sedan, which was released in 2009. Offering a standard 3.8L V6 at a whopping 311 hp and generous features like a rearview camera, automatic dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, and a hands-free trunk in its 2016 model year, the Genesis has a lot to offer. In fact, Hyundai saw so much success with the Genesis model that it branched off to become its own luxury brand in 2017. Meanwhile, Hyundai continues to expand its offering of cars and SUVs, introducing the all-new Hyundai Palisade for the 2020 model year.
