The 2016 Brand Keys survey measured both rational and emotional aspects and responses to the brands that respondents patron. Brand Keys then measured and analyzed brand loyalty and customer engagement, which was then used to gauge how well each brand meets consumer expectations. Robert Passikoff, found and president, Brand Keys, had this to say about the Hyundai brand:

Psychologists say that seven years is a mark that friendship will last a lifetime. It’s also the seventh year in a row that Hyundai has been named #1 in our customer loyalty and engagement index. When you’re a brand that can build that kind of emotional engagement, and a company that can build cars that meet high expectations, you can count on customers being your friends for a long, long time. We congratulate Hyundai for the great job they’ve done and will undoubtedly continue to do.

Dean Evans, Chief Marketing Officer, Hyundai Motor America, had this to say about earning the award for the seventh year in a row:

Hyundai is a long-standing history of being on top for loyalty. This means more consumers who buy a Hyundai buy another, and more than any other car at any price. Our brand mission is to make things better, from the owner to the driving experience, to keep our customers coming back.
