Here at Kearny Mesa Hyundai, we welcomed in the New Year with open arms. We always love to get that fresh start at the beginning of a year, and look back on past successes for our dealership and brand. Last year was a great one for us and Hyundai Motor America overall. In fact, the December and year end sales are in, and we are proud of what Hyundai has accomplished in 2014.
Last year was the fifth consecutive year of record sales, showing that Hyundai vehicles are becoming more and more popular. As for December, sales were up two percent compared to the record setting December 2013 sales. Many individual models set their own records as well. Hyundai Sonata sales were up 24 percent in December over the previous year, and the Hyundai Genesis saw an increase of 17% compared to last December. The Hyundai Santa Fe also did spectacularly, and saw an impressive year over year increase of 21.5 percent. In addition to the records set by the new Hyundai cars, Certified Pre-Owned Hyundai sales were up 26 percent compared to 2013.
We look forward to continuing this success into 2015. Our sales team is ready to help you find your next new model right here at our dealership, so you too can be a part of the 2015 success. Once you get that model, we will help you to keep it in great shape this year and for many more to come with regular Hyundai service appointments. We hope to make you one of our satisfied customers very soon.
