FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Dec. 1, 2017 – The leading Spanish-language automotive radio show, Ruedas ESPN, named the 2018 Hyundai Sonata best midsize sedan and the 2018 Elantra GT best hatchback, both leading vehicles within the Hyundai lineup for Hispanics.

The Ruedas ESPN Awards were presented this year at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

'The stylish, value-oriented 2018 Hyundai Sonata and 2018 Elantra GT are affordable, versatile, and fun to drive with fresh exterior designs, enhanced infotainment, convenience and safety technologies,' said Mike O'Brien, vice president of product, corporate and digital planning, Hyundai Motor America. 'It's an honor for the Hyundai brand to receive this recognition from Ruedas ESPN, reflecting how we are delivering on both the practical and lifestyle needs of our Hispanic customers.'

Defining the benchmark for mid-sized sedans, the redesigned 2018 Sonata builds on the success of previous generations while introducing a number of dramatic design changes, resulting in a bolder, more sophisticated exterior, segment leading interior space and standard safety features including blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert. The 2018 Hyundai Sonata earned the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety's highest accolade for safety, receiving a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award when equipped with optional front crash prevention and dynamic bending headlights.

The all-new 2018 Elantra GT adds a more aggressive stance, an attention-grabbing new cascading grille design and interior volume to its clean European style and driving dynamics. Excellent functionality in terms of roominess, visibility and comfort is complemented by a sensuous and confident design expression and fun to drive element.
