We just spoke earlier this week about the Hyundai Veloster N model’s award from Cars.com, but there’s another award that was recently announced that we’d like to cover right away today. Looking for a new vehicle that would make a good fit for your family? Well, CarBuzz.com got to the bottom of which vehicle might be the best for a family, by awarding its inaugural Family Fun Award. As it’s the first time this award has been handed out, we’re quite proud that a Hyundai vehicle will forever be the very first winner – the 2020 Hyundai Palisade!

“The all-new Palisade has been designed to give families peace of mind, whether they are setting out on a family vacation or tackling everyday life. The honor from CarBuzz recognizes not only the high level of execution of the Palisade, but also the vehicle’s fantastic value equation.”
– Scott Margason, Director of Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America
How was the winner decided?
This is a unique award in that it didn’t go to a specific segment or class of vehicle. Most annual awards from publications like CarBuzz.com hand out awards for different segments – for instance, the Small SUV, Large Sedan or Minivan segments. For the Family Fun Award, a vehicle simply had to be new for the past year and have an MSRP of under $40,000. The 2020 Hyundai Palisade didn’t just beat out other utility vehicles, but sedans and minivans as well.
The Palisade SUV’s incredibly spacious cabin – with room for up to eight passengers – and its impressive powertrain helped it to the podium for this award. If you’re interested in a 2020 Hyundai Palisade for your own family, be sure to reach out to us here at Coastal Hyundai at your earliest convenience!
