- Elantra is one of the Hispanic Motor Press’ Top Ten Vehicles for Hispanic Buyers
LOS ANGELES, Mar. 12, 2021 – The Hispanic Motor press Awards (HMPA), announced each year during Automobility LA, named the 2021 Hyundai Elantra Car Model of the Year. The 11th annual awards program continues its yearly tradition recognizing the best new model year 2021 vehicles for Hispanic car buyers based on styling, driving satisfaction, technology, safety, environmental impact, mechanical reliability, and value. Elantra is also one of the top ten new vehicles for Hispanic buyers. The winners were announced during a special virtual LA Auto Show Automobility media day with the Motor Press Guild (MPG) in Los Angeles, CA.
“On behalf of all team members at Hyundai Motor North America, I would like to thank each member of the prestigious Hispanic Motor Press jury panel for selecting the 2021 Hyundai Elantra as the Best Car Model of the Year. Now in its seventh generation, the all-new Elantra provides exciting driving dynamics and the most progressive in-car experience in its class with many segment-first features,” said José Muñoz, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor North America. “The Elantra family now also includes a first-ever Hybrid version with up to 54 MPG combined fuel economy rating (EPA estimated) and the N Line performance model that enthusiasts will love.”
The 2021 HMPA Jury Panel is comprised of 24 independent Hispanic automotive journalists, content creators and industry influencers selected by the organization’s advisory board. More than 20 juror members evaluated over 100 new vehicles during 2020 and into 2021.
“In a world where the crossovers and SUVs keep gaining market share, it is refreshing to see that a manufacturer has not forgotten the sedan class,” said Ricardo Rodriguez-Long, president Hispanic Motor Press.” “Being one of the best selling cars in the world, the Hyundai Elantra has to deliver to the most demanding customers across the globe. The all-new Elantra includes a full line up from the hybrid version to a sportier version with the N model. The build quality of built and overall performance is proof that this Korean automaker has become a force in the industry.”
