You’ve heard the expression “you get what you pay for.” This used to apply when it came to car buying, but not anymore. Thanks to a demand for more economical vehicles and innovations in engineering, it is now entirely possible to get more for less.
You don’t have to drain your bank account in order to drive off in a stunning, safe and reliable vehicle that is built to last. If you thought a brand new car would be over your budget, think again. Consumer Reports recently compiled a list of the “Best New Cars for Under $25,000.” Three top-selling models from Hyundai made the list:
Best Value Cars 2013
The Hyundai Accent GLS was one of the top buys under $20,000. Although low in price, the chic and sporty exterior of the Accent doesn’t cut corners like other subcompacts. The Accent embraces the Fluidic Sculpture design theme signature of Hyundai. This includes a distinctive front fascia, bold rear bumper and smooth flowing lines that you typically wouldn’t expect to find on a car in the subcompact class. In addition to being bold, beautiful and budget-savvy, the Accent will continue to save you money at the fuel pump with its eco-efficient 1.6L Gamma GDI engine which achieves 37 MPG HWY.
The 2013 Elantra offers a lot of bang for your buck with an MSRP that starts under $20,000. Standard features include iPod®/USB and auxiliary input jacks, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and the most front legroom in its class. With more standard offerings than many other compacts, the Elantra has been renowned for providing incredible value for quite some time. This year, it was the winner of the prestigious ALG Residual Value Award. This means that the Elantra is not only a best buy right now, but it is also forecasted to retain the highest MSRP in its class after a three-year period.
The Hyundai Sonata is a midsize sedan with a whole lot to offer and an MSRP below $25,000. Comfort comes standard in the Sonata with the roomiest interior in its class. Every Sonata seat has been meticulously sculpted to provide extra leg support which reduces discomfort and fatigue. The Sonata seats up to five, plus provides plenty of space for your gear with ample trunk space. This makes the 2013 Sonata perfect for daily commutes, weekend excursions or even longer road trips. Whatever your destination, this is a car you can count on to make the journey for many years to come. The Sonata was recently ranked “Most Dependable Midsize Car” in the J.D. Power and Associates 2013 Vehicle Dependability Study.
