Elantra Named 2013 Car of the Americas

A group of prestigious journalists determines the 2013 Hyundai Elantra to be the best car of the Americas.

Online PR News – 01-February-2013 – Bel Air, MD – Earlier this month, the Inter-American Federation of Automotive Journalists named the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT as the “2013 Car of the Americas.” To determine a winner of this award, this group of journalists evaluated every vehicle released to North and South America in 2012. After many tests throughout the year, they selected the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT as the best.
"Elantra GT truly showcases how Hyundai is redefining the compact car and setting new standards in automotive design, efficiency and functionality," said Mike O'Brien, vice president, Product and Corporate Planning, Hyundai Motor America. "We are honored that this unique and diverse group of journalists in over two continents have recognized the Elantra GT's positive impact on the global automotive industry."
The Hyundai Elantra surpassed its sales totals from 2011 and posted a new sales record in 2012 with numbers around 200,000 units sold. This makes the Elantra the second best selling Hyundai vehicle behind the highly popular Sonata.
“Adding the third shift to our plant in Alabama this year has allowed us to better meet demand for Elantra,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “Elantra buyers love its recipe of ALG-class-leading residual value, bold design, and outstanding value. With a full year of three-shift U.S. production in 2013 we hope to introduce even more American car buyers to Elantra next year.”
