Online PR News – 26-February-2012 – – St. Charles Hyundai is pleased to announce that two of their models received awards from Kelley Blue Book. Both the 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2012 Hyundai Sonata received Total Cost of Ownership awards in the Crossover and Mid-Size Car segment respectively.

The annual Total Cost of Ownership Award recipients are determined by calculating cost of fuel, maintenance, repair costs, and depreciation costs. The vehicles and motor company with the lowest projected Total Cost of Ownership during the first five-year ownership period receive awards. The awards help to give consumers information on what vehicles will cost in the long-term to get a more accurate picture of true cost of a vehicle. The total cost of ownership is a great metric for consumers to use when trying to decide between vehicles.

Scott Margason, director of Product Planning at Hyundai Motor America commented, “We’re honored that Kelley Blue Book recognized two models with an award that directly influences Hyundai owners. The 2012 Santa Fe and Sonata are excellent examples of Hyundai’s commitment to delivering quality products that offer exceptional value, fuel efficiency, performance, and standard safety and convenience features.”
