Hyundai Sonata and Genesis win “Top Scoring Car” Award From Total Car Score

Hyundai was recognized for the 2012 Sonata and Genesis as top scoring cars in their respective segments.

Online PR News – 28-May-2012 – St. Louis, MO – Total Car Score, the most detailed automotive ranking and comparison website, released its first annual “Top Scoring Car Awards” for 2012. Hyundai was recognized for the 2012 Sonata and Genesis as top scoring cars in their respective segments. Sonata received the top scoring position in the midsize sedan/wagon segment and Genesis won in the luxury sedan/wagon category.

“Hyundai isn't just meeting industry benchmarks with cars like the Sonata and Genesis, they are setting it – and forcing other brands to play catch-up,” said Karl Brauer, CEO of Total Car Score.

The “Top Scoring Car Awards” cover all major vehicle categories. The scores are based on Total Car Score’s ranking formula, which offers a comprehensive evaluation of cars in each segment. Much like Rotten Tomatoes does with movies, a vehicle’s Total Car Score is its combination of scores from all the top automotive review and rating sites. These car reviews and ratings are translated into a single number that allows visitors to quickly and easily compare cars.

Additionally, the Hyundai Sonata was the second highest scoring vehicle overall among the 35 awarded vehicles. The Director of Product Planning, Scott Margason had this to say about the Sonata, “Since its introduction, Sonata continues to be the perfect mid-size sedan for families looking for quality and value with advanced standard safety features, three versatile powertrain choices and unrivaled interior convenience technologies.”

The award-winning Hyundai Sonata continues to be a huge hit thanks to its impressive fuel efficiency (24 mpg city/35 mpg estimated highway), advanced technology and overall value. Those are just a few reasons why the Sonata is the most shipped car in America.
Hyundai’s award-winning Genesis sedan continues its segment leadership in 2012 with exterior design improvements, new direct injection technology for its Lambda V6 engine, new eight-speed automatic transmissions, and enhanced chassis tuning.
