Earning Top Marks of Excellence

U.S. News and World Report bases its Best Cars for the Money Awards on data from reliability surveys, as well as the safety ratings of each car and the consensus among other automotive publications. These awards are also based on everyday transaction prices for vehicles in their respective categories, considering the five-year cost to ownership. Since new Hyundai models near Vista, CA come priced affordably, and take little time to pay off, it makes sense that these models would earn high marks in this category.
