Take the Advice of Consumer Guide® and Drive a New Hyundai SUV

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe and 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport took home the 2017 Consumer Guide® Automotive Best Buy Award in the Midsize Crossover/SUV category. With power, strength, and style to spare, it’s easy to see the appeal of these standout SUVs.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport feature an update of Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design that makes them practically leap off the lot. An aerodynamic exterior design helps to cut down on wind resistance and boost efficiency. And the available Hands-free Smart Liftgate just makes life easier. Stand within three feet behind the vehicle for more than three seconds with the Proximity Key on your person and it’s “open sesame!” With a height-adjustable feature that allows you to stop the tailgate at various heights, and the capability to let you access more than 70 cubic feet of cargo space with ease, this is a feature you’ll never want to be without.

Available Active Cornering Control All Wheel Drive (AWD) is another great tool to have at your disposal. The system boosts traction and cornering capability by transferring engine torque to the rear wheels while applying braking force to the inside rear wheel. This is a great feature all of the time, but it comes in especially handy on slick roads. Both vehicles feature Hyundai’s 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, which works to balance power delivery with fuel efficiency.

One of our favorite features here at Keyes Cars is the ability to choose between Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes, allowing you to optimize your vehicle for every ride. Head in to our dealership near Los Angeles, CA today to learn more about these great Hyundai SUVs.

Do More in a New Honda SUV

The Honda brand has always made some of the most reliable vehicles on the road. And while most folks know the automaker for their sedans, like the Honda Accord and Honda Civic, more and more drivers are coming to our dealership near Glendale, CA to test drive a new Honda SUV. And they’re not the only ones taking notice of these standout SUVs. Earlier this month, both the 2017 Honda CR-V and the 2017 Honda HR-V won their respective categories in U.S News & World Report’s 2017 Best Cars for the Money awards.

The 2017 Honda CR-V was named the 2017 Best Car for the Money in the Compact SUV category. And that’s not the only award the vehicle has earned. During Car and Driver’s 2017 10Best Trucks and SUVs award, the Honda CR-V was named the Best Compact SUV. And while the Honda Accord and Honda Civic may steal the spotlight, the Honda brand  is certainly not the “new kid on the block” when it comes to SUVs. On the contrary, the Honda CR-V has been America’s best-selling SUV over the past two decades. The fifth-generation 2017 model offers a stylish exterior, a wealth of convenient interior features like a heated front seat and rear USB charging ports, and the adaptability you need to accommodate whatever the day demands.

The 2017 Honda HR-V was named the 2017 Best Car for the Money in the subcompact SUV segment, marking the second consecutive year that the Honda SUV has taken home the award. One of the best parts about this rugged crossover is its versatility. The interior can be configured in Long Mode, Tall Mode, and Utility Mode to cut down on your trips to and from the front door. High-tech features boost comfort and safety, helping this Honda vehicle check all the right boxes.

2017 Hyundai Sonata Declared Best Car for the Money

When you head in to a Keyes Cars dealership, you want your money to go far. It’s easy to get caught up in bells and whistles that take you beyond what you need, and beyond what you budgeted for. But you don’t want a car that’s “cheap.” After all, you’re going to be driving your new car every day. You need something you can count on. What you’re after, then, is “value.” That’s the name of the game. But how do you narrow your choices down? Well, first and foremost, you’ve got the great staff at our dealerships here near Woodland Hills, CA to point you in the right direction. 

And now, you have some help from U.S. News & World Report as well. They have a long history of doing their research and helping readers make the best choices when faced with their biggest decisions, whether that’s which college to apply to or which car to buy. And according to them, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is the Best Midsize Car for the Money. Intrigued? We thought you might be.

The midsize car segment is one of the auto industry’s most competitive fields. The Hyundai Sonata faced off against 18 other foreign and domestic midsize sedans in U.S. News & World Report’s search. And they came out at the front of the pack. The magazine formulates its rankings by compiling quantity and value data to create an unbiased composite score. Among the variables that led them to their selection were the Hyundai Sonata’s impressive quality and versatility, and the fact that “usable technology litters the [Hyundai] Sonata's lengthy list of standard and optional features."

Here’s Brandon Ramirez, senior group manager, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America, on the accolade:
“The recognition by U.S. News & World Report highlights out commitment to providing better for our customers. From technology to driver experience to overall performance, we are proud to have the Sonata represent the standard of value in this class.”

But that’s what everybody else thinks. Head in to our dealership today and tell us what you think. And don’t forget about the rest of the great automobiles we have for sale. Make your money go the distance in a brand-new Hyundai vehicle.
