2016 marks the first year that the J.D. Power 2016 U.S. Tech Experience Index Study was conducted. The inaugural study measures owner experience, usage, and interaction with driver-centric vehicle technology. Both the 2017 Hyundai Tucson and 2017 Hyundai Genesis outperformed the other vehicles in their respective segments. The Hyundai Tucson ranked the highest in six evaluation categories: collision protection, comfort and convenience, driving assistance, entertainment and connectivity, and navigation. The Hyundai Genesis outperformed 20 other vehicles to earn the top spot in its class. Mircea Gradu, director, engineering and quality, Hyundai Motor America, had this to say about the new Hyundai technologies:

Advanced safety and convenience technologies are top of mind for many drivers, and we are thrilled that our models are exceeding expectations in these crowded segments. From being among the first to implement and standardize leading safety technologies as Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning to entertainment features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Hyundai is committed to providing better technological solutions for a better owner and driver experience.

The 2017 Hyundai Genesis employs a full suite of active driver safety technologies under the “Sensory Surround Safety” umbrella. Such technologies include automatic emergency braking, smart cruise control with lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, blind spot detection, electronic stability control, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and more! The Hyundai Tucson features a number of the same driver assistance technologies. Head on down to Kearny Mesa Hyundai to speak to a member of our team about these great Hyundai cars today!
