The 2017 Hyundai Sonata was recognized as a market leader that continues to set industry standards. The Automotive Science Group annually awards these accolades as a result of its all-around performance assessment, the Automotive Performance Index (API). The API analyzes a vehicle’s environmental, social, and economic performance, including its cost of ownership and operating costs, over the first 6.5 years of vehicle ownership. Colby Self, founding partner and managing director, Automotive Science Group, had this to say about the 2017 Hyundai Sonata:
In a highly competitive class, the Sonata is a stand out that provides fuel efficient technologies at a best in class value. Additionally, five Hyundai vehicles earned ASG’s Best 5 All-Around Performance honors, further reinforcing Hyundai’s position as a market leader.
Four other Hyundai models were also recognized in their respective classes by the ASG: 2017 Hyundai Accent, 2017 Hyundai Tucson, 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, and 2017 Hyundai PHEV. Brandon Ramirez, senior group manager, product planning, Hyundai Motor America, had this to say about the honors:
