Kelley Blue Book recently announced the various winners of their "2018 5-Year Cost to Own Awards," and Hyundai took home numerous honors -- including the title of Best Brand! Per Kelley Blue Book, this award recognizes the fact that Hyundai has a reputation for offering more features for less money than its competitors, and demonstrates excellent long-term value.

The KBB editors noted that Hyundai has always enjoyed a reputation as a brand with a low initial cost, but the value found in a Hyundai lasts long beyond getting behind the wheel and driving off the dealership's lot. Cost-effective over the long term, Hyundai is emerging as a solid name in a highly competitive arena. This brand win is the second in three years for Hyundai, validating the company's decision to offer state-of-the-art technologies, high-end design, and innovative safety systems in all models. Of course, the Hyundai warranty -- the best in the business -- also plays an essential role in the brand's excellent value.

Individual Hyundai models earning recognition for their long-term value include:

  • 2018 Hyundai Accent: Best Subcompact Car, Third Place
  • 2018 Hyundai Elantra: Best Compact Car, Second Place
  • 2018 Hyundai Sonata: Best Mid-Size Car, First Place
  • 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: Best Mid-Size SUV/Crossover, Third Place
