There’s always a lot to think about when you’re shopping for a new vehicle, but the decision becomes even harder when you have to consider the needs of everyone in your family. Hyundai offers a wealth of outstanding features that make their vehicles some of the best options on the market for families with children. From safety to entertainment, Hyundai covers it all. Learn why a Hyundai is the best pick for your family’s next vehicle.
Superior Safety Features
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded seven of its 2021 Top Safety Pick (TSP) and Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) ratings to Hyundai vehicles. The TSP+ rating went to the 2021 Hyundai Nexo and Hyundai Palisade. The TSP rating was awarded to the:
- 2021 Hyundai Veloster.
- 2021 Hyundai Sonata.
- 2021 Hyundai Kona.
- 2021 Hyundai Tucson.
- 2021 Hyundai Venue.
To receive either of these designations, a vehicle must have a rating of at least “Good” for all six crashworthiness tests, earn a ranking of “Acceptable” or “Good” for headlights, and offer front crash prevention technology that’s rated either “Advanced” or “Superior” for vehicle-to-pedestrian and vehicle-to-vehicle evaluations.
Hyundai is no newcomer to these kinds of awards. Eleven Hyundai vehicles earned IIHS TSP or TSP+ awards in the 2020 lineup. In fact, over the last five years, Hyundai has won more IIHS safety awards than Subaru, Honda, Toyota, or Nissan. This automaker is a well-established leader when it comes to keeping your family safe.
Outstanding Gas Mileage
Hyundai understands the importance of having a family budget and strives to offer vehicles that are easy on your wallet at the gas station. Many of the cars in Hyundai’s lineup offer great gas mileage.
The 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid offers an outstanding 52 mpg combined, placing it with the top-ranking vehicles among hybrid and electric cars on U.S. News & World Report’s list. Equipped with a six-speed transmission, this vehicle offers strong acceleration and power while making the most of both its battery and motor.
Also on the list is the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Blue trim, which delivers 59 mpg combined. The standard Ioniq offers 55 mpg combined, which is still impressive. This vehicle also offers 26.5 cubic feet of cargo space, making it especially handy for a family with a lot of gear to tow.
When you move into Hyundai’s electric lineup, things get even better. The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric gets 120 mpg combined, while the 2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric offers 133 mpg combined. Even Hyundai’s gasoline vehicles don’t disappoint. Consider the 2021 Hyundai Accent which offers 36 mpg combined with a four-cylinder 1.6-liter engine and automatic transmission. These vehicles make it easy to keep your fuel expenses affordable.
Ample Cargo and Passenger Space
Several of Hyundai’s vehicles are designed to maximize your interior space. The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe offers up to 72.1 cubic feet of cargo space with all the rear seats folded down. This is ideal for moving furniture or a massive load of boxes as the kids go off to college. Lugging around sports equipment with your children in the car? Behind the second row of seats, you’ll still have 36.4 cubic feet available to you. Your passengers will stay comfortable in this vehicle as well with 44.1 inches of legroom in the front and 41.7 inches in the second row.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson ramps things up even further with 39 cubic feet of storage room behind the second row and 80 cubic feet when the seats are folded down. This adds 8 cubic feet to the 2021 model. Hyundai’s lineup has plenty of room for moving groceries, sporting equipment, and everything your family needs.
Entertainment for All
It’s important to keep your family entertained when you’re on the road, which is why Hyundai goes above and beyond in terms of technology. The 2021 Hyundai Palisade features an 8-inch full-color touch screen in the SE and SEL trims, and a massive 10.25-inch screen in the Calligraphy and Limited models. Features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Passenger Talk.
The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe is available with a 10.25-inch touch screen, as well. Harman Kardon Premium Audio complete with Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology will give you the perfect soundtrack for any adventure. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are on hand here as well.
Roadside Assistance and Warranty Protections
It’s important to know that someone has your back when you’re taking care of a family. All of Hyundai’s new vehicles come with Hyundai Assurance that includes a Roadside Assistance plan for five years. Whether your toddler has locked your keys in the car or you need a jump start while you’re out running errands, Hyundai has you covered 24/7.
Hyundai Assurance also includes a 10-year 100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty and a five-year 60,000-mile limited warranty. Replacement parts and accessories are covered under a 12-month 12,000-mile warranty. For even more peace of mind, you can invest in the Hyundai Complimentary Maintenance plan. This provides you with all your factory-scheduled maintenance for the first three years or 36,000 miles, depending on which comes first. This includes oil changes, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections to keep your vehicle running smoothly on the road.
Investing in products that are made in the USA helps support the American economy and create jobs domestically. You’re actively supporting the future of American business when you put your dollars toward cars that have been manufactured right here in the country. Buying American-made products is also better for the environment because you can minimize the impacts of global shipping.
Hyundai vehicles are engineered in Michigan. The Sonata, Elantra, and Santa Fe are all assembled in Montgomery, Alabama, and all new Hyundai vehicles go through testing at the Hyundai Technical Center in Irvine, California.
