Thursday, January 30, 2014’s Family Car of the Year: The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

On January 14, 2014, held its annual “Best of” award show and the winner of their Family Car of the Year award is the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Not only did it surpass other family cars on the market for its interior flexibility and safety features, experts said it is “Fun to drive.” This is a win-win for the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Mark Medinger, owner of Savannah Hyundai, agrees, “The new Santa Fe Sport is a crossover with plenty of space and great handling.” The other nominees in the category for Family Car of the Year were the Buick Enclave and the Honda Odyssey.
Let’s look at the features that set the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport apart:

More Cargo Space. The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is great for hauling around the family and all their stuff. It has a whopping 71.5 cubic feet of cargo space when the second- row seats are folded down. Compare that with the Toyota Venza at 70.2, the Ford Edge at 68.9, and the Honda CR-V at 70.9.

Easier U-Turns. Agility is what sets a crossover apart from a standard SUV. The 2014 Santa Fe Sport has a tighter turning diameter than its competitors. The Santa Fe can do a 360 degree turn in 35.76 ft.

7 Airbags. The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport takes safety seriously. That is why they have one more standard airbag than the Ford Edge and Chevy Equinox. This includes a driver’s knee airbag.

Stain- Resistant Fabric. Every parent knows that spills happen in the car. That is why Hyundai has outfitted the Santa Fe Sport with stain-resistant fabric to help keep that new car look for as long as possible.

Vehicle Stability Management. This system integrates and coordinates the Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System, Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Brake-force Distribution with Brake Assist to create an active-safety system to help avoid accidents.

Hyundai is no stranger to awards and is honored to have the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport named Family Car of the Year. The Hyundai Santa Fe is a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS and made Kelley Blue Book’s top 10 list of Best SUV under 25k. If you need a larger crossover, Hyundai also offers the 2014 Santa Fe which features an additional row of seating. Savannah Hyundai has a great selection to choose from on the lot today.

Hyundai Programs for Our Military Service Men and Women

Savannah Hyundia Discounts for Military
U.S. service men and women sacrifice a lot for their country and it’s important to acknowledge their support by helping them adjust back into the civilian world.  Hyundai has made it a priority to support our troops through the Military Rebate Program.  This program provides special financing and rebates for active duty, reservists, National Guard, veterans with honorable discharge, or retired military.  This year, active military and veterans account for an incredible 1 out of 10 Hyundai sold.  Hyundai also has an active program for the military recruitment of service men and women for employment opportunities around the country.  This Hyundai program was named Best of the Best by the U.S. Veterans Magazine.
“Hyundai Motor America offers veterans the opportunity to quickly and easily transition into civilian life by providing engaging and rewarding career opportunities,” said Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher, U.S. Veterans Magazine.  “The goal of our annual evaluation is not only to bring information and guidance to our readers, but also to encourage active outreach and diversity policies among corporations and government agencies.”
Reliability is a key feature in Hyundai’s line-up.  Each Hyundai is backed up by America’s best warranty. Introduce on 2014, the Hyundai Tucson is one of Hyundai’s featured vehicles and has been making waves against competitors such as Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape.  This in-demand Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) gets an estimated 29 MPG. The Hyundai Tucson offers drivers the latest technology, like Home Link, that allows drivers to switch on lights and open garage doors of their home - all without getting out of their your car.  The 2013 Hyundai Tucson is available at Savannah Hyundai for test drives.

The Best Time to Buy a Car?

We all want a great deal on a new car.  But when is the best time to buy?  Are there any tricks to getting the best deal?  According to JD Power and Associates, as well as, the key to getting a great deal on a new car is all in the timing.  Their expert advice ... buy your new car at the end of the day, end of the month and if possible, the end of the year.

We all know that the new model year begins sometime in the summer and goes through the end of the year.  This means that the new 2014 cars are arriving on the dealership lots daily.  The 2014 are on the lot before a dealer can sell all of the 2013 models.  Right now, on car lots across the nation dealers like Savannah Hyundai are offering exceptional bargains on all of their 2013 Hyundai Inventory. 

Whether you are looking for a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Fit or the all new Hyundai Accent, the end of the year is a great time to buy.

But this begs the question, if dealers want lots of inventory on their lots and the 2013s are such great cars, why would they really need to move them off the lot?  Why worry right?  Answer:  It's all about lines of credit.  Dealers have to buy their inventory from the manufacturers.  And there are very few dealers in the US that can afford to pay that kind of money out of pocket.  They get lines of credit in order to buy more cars.  At the end of the year they are accountable for that inventory and taxed on that inventory.  Financially, it would be devastating to end 2013 with all of that inventory on the lot.  Car dealerships like to be as lean as possible by December 31st of each year.  As usual, the deals are all about the money!

Additionally, car dealership sales representatives usually work on commission.  Those commission reports are due at the end of each day, week and month respectively.  There is a huge advantage to a salesperson if they can close the deal by midnight!  

Another point to consider about working with a dealership sales person is that you are starting a relationship.  That person will likely be your contact for all of the follow-up to buying your new car.  Why not start the relationship out right by making their month a little better.  You never know what incentives and extras you might receive in the future from cultivating that business friendship.  Remember, professional car sales people, like those at Savannah Hyundai, have changed over the years.  Gone are the pushy stereotypical car salesmen.  Today, your auto professional has to have a wealth of knowledge and is responsible for a number of services after the sale of the car.  Think smart and treat them right.  It always pays off!

Hyundai Motor Corporation Tied for Third in Best Overall Total Quality
2013 Hyundai Genesis 

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis sedan was named Best-in-Segment (tied with the Audi A4), topping the near-luxury car category in Strategic Vision’s 2013 Total Quality Index® (TQI). Overall, Hyundai Motor Corporation tied for third place with General Motors Corporation for Best Total Quality for an individual brand. The Total Quality Index measures total vehicle satisfaction among new car owners, reflecting not only the quality of the vehicles, but the emotional connections which accommodate all aspects of the ownership experience.

“Hyundai continues to be an industry-leader in terms of overall quality and satisfaction,” said Alexander Edwards, President, Strategic Vision. “The only thing that keeps the Hyundai Genesis from competing in the luxury category is its price point. The car’s ability to rub shoulders with its more expensive European rivals really shows the depth of Hyundai’s product lineup, and serves as an example for foreign and domestic brands alike.”

The Hyundai Genesis beat out competitors including the Lexus ES 350, Acura TSX Sedan, Lincoln MKS, Cadillac ATS and Volvo S60 in the near-luxury category.

“Receiving a 2013 Strategic Vision Total Quality Index award is recognition of our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, Product and Corporate Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “We strive to give our customers the highest-quality products, delivered in a package which is both exciting and engaging to drive.”

The Total Quality Index asks buyers to rate all aspects of the ownership experience, from buying and owning, to performance and driving. Results were calculated from 17,568 buyers who purchased 2013 models during September to November 2012. Strategic Vision has presented the Total Quality Index annually since 1995.

Hyundai’s award-winning Genesis sedan continues its premium segment leadership for 2013 with simplified model offerings and a new ultimate navigation system with Blue Link® telematics. The 5.0 R-Spec model and the 3.8-liter Lambda powertrain remain available with a new optional eight-inch Driver Information System (DIS) display with navigation and an enhanced multi-media controller.

Stephen Marley’s Remix of “Three Little Birds” is the Anthem for Hyundai’s New Campaign


 Building on its tradition of supporting innovation in music, Hyundai  unveils a new campaign for Assurance Connected Care with an all-new remix of “Three Little Birds” created by Bob Marley’s son and ten-time Grammy winner, Stephen Marley. Hyundai’s past music-focused programs include the RE:GENERATION Music Project featuring Skrillex and members of The Doors, partnering with the Flaming Lips for the Super Bowl and most recently the GRAMMY’s Center Stage project. Hyundai is now continuing its commitment and support of innovative music initiatives by working with Universal Music Enterprises and the Bob Marley family on the Legend: Remixed project.

Legend: Remixed is an inspired new spin on the Bob Marley classic Legend album with electronic dance music’s biggest names and producers re-imagining classic Marley tracks. The fourth track on the album, “Three Little Birds,” was remixed by Stephen Marley and DJ/producer Jason Bentley. This iconic Marley track will serve as the worry-free anthem for Hyundai’s new Assurance Connected Care program, a new suite of features that allows drivers to feel safe and secure and enjoy a stress-free ownership experience. Prior to its television debut, “Three Little Birds” will be available starting May 14 for free download to the first 15,000 fans through Hyundai's Facebook and YouTube channels and also available for sale through all digital retailers.

“’Three Little Birds,’ a true Bob Marley classic, is the perfect anthem for Hyundai’s Assurance Connected Care – you don’t have to worry about a thing,” said Steve Shannon, vice president, Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. “Assurance Connected Care was inspired by actual customer experiences – we listened to customer needs and developed tools and applications that would simplify car ownership. With Assurance Connected Care’s maintenance and safety features, your car takes care of itself and it takes care of you.”

The campaign breaks with a 30-second spot titled “Signs” which features the Hyundai Santa Fe, Sonata and Veloster. The execution takes viewers past typical road signs, but instead of the usual warnings, the signs feature worry-free sayings and helpful reminders like “Got your back,” “Care free lane ahead,” or “It’s all good.” An additional three 15-second spots each highlight a key Assurance Connected Care feature – Monthly Vehicle Service Report, Maintenance Alert and Automatic Collision Notification. Creative was developed by Hyundai’s agency of record, INNOCEAN USA, and directed by Philippe Andre.

The Legend: Remixed album is a collection of remixed Bob Marley classics from the reggae icon’s Legend album. The tracks were remixed by renowned artists including Ziggy Marley, Stephen Marley, RAC, Nicodemus and others. The full Legend: Remixedalbum will be released this summer by Island/Tuff Gong/UME.

Hyundai also supported the creation of the “Making of Legend: Remixed” documentary, a short film about the creation of the new album including interviews with the Marley family and the musicians involved.

“Three Little Birds” is widely considered one of Bob Marley’s most iconic songs. In 1984, the song was included on Legend, which is now the No. 1 selling reggae album of all time and one of the biggest selling albums of any genre in history. The collection received a RIAA Diamond® Award (ten times Platinum) in the U.S. and sold 25 million copies worldwide.

“Bob Marley remains one of the world’s most important and influential artists and with Legend: Remixed, his music will continue to live on and inspire new generations of music fans,” said Bruce Resnikoff, President/CEO, Universal Music Enterprises. “Our relationship with Hyundai is truly special as their Assurance Connected Care message ‘don’t worry about a thing’ is perfectly echoed in the new Marley remix of the iconic ‘Three Little Birds’ track. This innovative campaign serves as a new way the Marley family can share his music with a broad national audience.”

Assurance Connected Care is a suite of safety and maintenance features that now comes standard for three years on all Blue Link equipped vehicles. The new program will provide free proactive safety and car care telematics services including automatic collision notification, SOS emergency assistance, enhanced roadside assistance, monthly vehicle diagnostics reports and maintenance alerts. Assurance Connected Care makes Hyundai the first manufacturer to include built-in safety and vehicle maintenance services standard for three years.
