Why all the Attention on Hyundai?
The more recent Hyundai used cars are the most sought after as the recent model redesigns largely on two points. The first reason is the current sculpted designs that has grabbed so much attention at auto shows, show rooms, and on the road has only been on American roads within the last two years. These sleek flowing lines have elevated Hyundai from just another import to the dark horse favorite.
The other is shift in emphasis on fuel economy. For example a 2009 Elantra gets 25 city and 33 highway mileage, where a 2011 used Hyundai Elantra gets 29 city and 40 highway mileage. Combine these two factors with the fact that Hyundai has traditionally been a very affordable vehicle and you have a lot of used Hyundai Sonata, Santa Fe, and Tucson that suddenly look even more attractive when buyers wander onto the used car lot.
