The Car Book Names Hyundai Sonata & Santa Fe Sport BEST BETS
Not one, but two Hyundai vehicles were selected as BEST BETS by The Car Book, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata & Santa Fe Sport! As the longest running car buying guide for nearly four decades, The Car Book has been providing consumers with information regarding the current vehicles on the market in order to help them make an informed decision on the vehicle that is the best option for them. The vehicles named BEST BETS are selected by The Car Book and the Center for Auto Safety after evaluating and reviewing each of the available models looking into nine specific categories which include crash tests, safety features, rollover, preventative maintenance, repair costs, warranty, fuel economy, complaints, and insurance. They then recognize the vehicles that they feel most meet the needs of the American car buyer.
“At Hyundai, we strive to be better,” said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “The BEST BET recognition proves that we provide our customers with the utmost in advancements when it comes to safety and performance.”
A few of the standard features that the 2017 Sonata is equipped with include Vehicle Stability Management with Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control System, Driver’s Side Blind-Spot Mirror, Seven airbags including a driver’s knee airbag, Four-wheel disc brakes and ABS with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution and Brake Assist, and Tire Pressure Monitoring System with indicators for each tire.
