Hyundai

While Hyundai started out as a purveyor of budget-priced economy cars, it's now a big hitter in the automotive world with many impressively engineered and handsomely designed vehicles on offer. Models such as the Elantra compact car and the Santa Fe SUV still offer good value but make no excuses compared with their close rivals, making them solid choices in their respective segments. The upcoming 2020 Sonata mid-size sedan takes things up a level with daring styling and an impressive array of technology features. There's plenty of variety in the lineup, too, with vehicles including fuel-sipping Ioniq and the sporty and quirky Veloster.
