Family Focused

Whether you’re expecting your first child, or you’re looking to keep pace with your growing family, the new Hyundai lineup offers a plethora of Cars and SUVs that fit the bill. The biggest factor when looking for a family vehicle should always be safety, probably followed by space/seating, luckily Hyundai has multiple options that hit both checkmarks. If you’re interested in a sedan look no further than the 2019 Hyundai Sonata, an IIHS Top Safety Pick +, and with seating for up to 5 you have enough room for the parents and 3 little ones. If you need a bit more space or are looking for an SUV check out the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade, with seating for up to 8 and another winner of the IIHS TOP Safety Pick +.

Adrenaline Seeker

For those that are looking for something with a bit more excitement behind the wheel meet the 2019 & 2020 Hyundai Veloster Turbo. With the efficiency to get you anywhere on your adventure with 28 City and 34 Highway Miles per Gallon, and the power to make passes a breeze thanks to the 200+ HP producing Turbo Charged engine, this is one fun car you won’t want to miss out on. When it comes to performance, the Veloster holds nothing back. Experience precise handling with a Sport-Tuned suspension and hear the engine power through gears on select models (Turbo R-Spec).

Sometimes the best fit for your lifestyle is a vehicle that is capable of handling everything. Meet the 2019 & 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. Hyundai redesigned the Santa Fe heading into 2019, lending to a sleeker and sportier look while also improving on every aspect of the previous generations and the results speak for themselves. Also, a winner of the IIHS Top Safety Pick +, Hyundai was mindful when redesigning to ensure the Santa Fe is as safe as it is capable. Unique to 2020 Models, Hyundai introduced a new Blind View Monitor to provide drivers real time imagery of the Santa Fe’s blind spots. It’s just one of the many safety features from Hyundai to keep you and your family safe at all times on the road.
