Award season is definitely upon us in the automotive world. Last month we spoke about how Hyundai was named the 2021 Best SUV Brand by U.S. News & World Report, and now Kelley Blue Book has announced its selection for the 2021 Best Buy Awards. Were any Hyundai vehicles named as winners of these prestigious awards? The short answer is yes, in fact three different models did. The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe, Kona Electric and Elantra.

“We are thrilled to win three unique Kelley Blue Book Best Buy awards in the eco, car and SUV segments for 2021. Our Kona Electric, new Elantra and significantly enhanced 2021 Santa Fe are breakthrough products and we heartily agree with the editors of KBB.com in their decision to give these standout vehicles one of the most prestigious awards in the industry. We believe these awards clearly reflect our ‘Progress for Humanity’ vision to design and build vehicles that make our customers’ lives better in every way.”

Best Mid-size SUV (2 Row)
The 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe received even more significant updates this year, despite having just entered its current generation two years ago. Providing a truly well-rounded vehicle, it was a shoe in.
Best Electric Vehicle
Unfortunately, the Hyundai Kona Electric still isn’t available in our neck of the woods. But perhaps such a prestigious award will begin spreading it out to new places across the country!
Best Compact Car
We would’ve been surprised if the all-new 2021 Hyundai Elantra wasn’t highlighted by KBB.com, to be quite honest. An astounding overhaul from bumper to bumper, the new Elantra is truly something special.
