How Does Hyundai Compare With Other Brands


Hyundai has been steadily moving up the auto industry’s rankings over the past few decades, and the brand today offers many competitive models. Here’s a look at just how competitive Hyundai vehicles have become.


Warranty-Backed Reliability That’s Unsurpassed in the Industry

Hyundai has built its brand on warranty-backed reliability, and the company continues to set the industry standard for warranty coverage today. Hyundai’s America’s Best Warranty includes:

  • 10 years/100,000 miles of powertrain warranty protection
  • 5 years/60,000 miles of new vehicle warranty protection
  • 7 years/unlimited miles of anti-perforation warranty protection
  • lifetime/unlimited miles of hybrid battery warranty protection

Each of these protections is more than Lexus, Chevrolet, Toyota, Honda, Nissan or many other auto manufacturers offer on their new vehicles.


Value-Focused Design That Balances Drivers’ Needs

Rather than designing dream machines for a fantasy world where cars always go fast and SUVs constantly traverse unexplored terrain, Hyundai’s design emphasis remains highly practical and focused on real-world issues. The company’s models balance performance, features and budget in a way that drivers get what they need and want at prices they can afford.

This philosophy often means that Hyundai vehicles aren't the cheapest models available, but they also aren’t the most expensive. Their MSRPs occupy a sweet spot, where necessities aren’t sacrificed but price isn’t prohibitive.

Many Models That Meet Drivers’ Diverse Needs

Because drivers use vehicles for all different purposes, Hyundai offers an array of vehicles. The company has no less than four crossovers and SUVs, two sedans, four alternative-fuel models, and five future vehicles.

Making lots of different vehicles doesn’t set Hyundai apart from all other auto manufacturers, for lots of companies offer a variety of sedans, crossovers, SUVs and other vehicles. The model lineup does, however, distinguish Hyundai from a few other companies. For example, Chrysler currently only has three models in production. A few other companies also don’t offer enough different vehicles to meet drivers’ varying needs.


More Top Safety Pick+ Awards

While all automakers take safety seriously, Hyundai has surpassed almost every competitor in this all-important area.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave out only 21 Top Safety Pick+ awards in 2018, and Hyundai won five of them. The only other brand with as many of these awards was Kia (which Hyundai owns part of). Honda, Subaru, Toyota, and every other brand had fewer vehicles get the IIHS’ top recognition.
