According to a study done by J.D. Power, Hyundai offers some of the best in-car tech in the mass market. This was the first study of its kind and asked new car owners to rate their car’s technology within the first 90 days of ownership.

Car owners rated their cars based on its entertainment features, overall connectivity, navigation, collision avoidance, driving assistance features, and comfort and convenience technology. With the results of the study, J.D. Power found that drivers were most satisfied with their collision avoidance technology. In addition, it was the most-used in-car tech. These features were also something that buyers were willing to pay more for to get.

J.D. Power used surveys from 13,269 consumers who purchased a leased a 2016 model. Both the Hyundai Genesis and Tucson achieved the highest rankings in their respective segments.

“Advanced safety and convenience technologies are top of mind for many drivers, and we are thrilled that our models are exceeding expectations in these crowded segments,” said Mircea Gradu, director, engineering & quality for Hyundai Motor America.

Here at Gossett Hyundai South, we are proud of all the technology offered within the Hyundai lineup. If you have any questions about the technology inside your Hyundai, we are here to help.

Genesis Luxury Brand as Good as BMW and Mercedes, According to Reviews

Genesis BrandHyundai’s new Genesis subsidiary, a luxury brand selling vehicles that was first introduced as a standalone brand late last year, has released its first-ever vehicles for the 2017 model year and received wide positive reviews from the biggest names in journalism and the auto industry.

Bloomberg’s review said that the Genesis G90 is “of the caliber of rival cars from BMW, Mercedes, and Audi” and compares it directly to the much pricier Mercedes S Class. The G90, the reviewer said, is “$10,000 less expensive and just as nicely done in the rear cabin, where it counts.”

The 2017 G90 comes with either a V6 engine or a more powerful V8 for only $1600 more, as well as available all-wheel drive. The G90 has four drive modes, including Sport mode, and an eight-speed automatic transmission with manual paddle shifters. The G90 comes standard with HID lights, daytime running lights, and even ambient-lit mirrors.

Reviewers noted the incredibly noise cancellation in the G90, and it has plenty of standard technology, including the 12.3-inch touchscreen, adaptive cruise control, and heated front and rear seats. With simple yet elegant styling and great city fuel economy, the Genesis G90 is the perfect car for city drivers.

Competing in quality with brands priced higher, the Genesis luxury brand and especially the flagship G90 are sure to challenge the premium car market.
