Hyundai Elantra makes Wards Auto List

The All New Hyundai Elantra has joined the inaugural Wards 10 Best User Experiences (UX) list.
  A statement from Hyundai explained that Elantra was recognized as a value leader in this year’s competition for its user-friendliness and sophistication.
 Vice president, corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America, Mike O’Brien said: “We are honored that  the Elantra is included in the Wards 10 Best User Experiences list among the likes of luxury models.”
  He added:“The Elantra was designed with advanced technology and premium convenience to bring our customers an exceptional user-friendly driving experience at a great price.”
The 2016 Wards 10 Best UX competition was created as a spin-off of 10 Best Interiors. Wards 10 Best UX drills deeply into the user-friendliness of vehicle systems designed to minimize distraction and frustration, prevent accidents and improve safety.
  Points are awarded based on a vehicle’s performance in the areas of connectivity, intuitive controls, displays, materials, infotainment and driver-assistance systems. Are there any “surprise and delight” elements to the user experience?
   Finally, there is no price cap, but a vehicle’s overall value is considered as well. Wards Auto editors evaluated 29 all-new or significantly redesigned light vehicles available in the U.S. Only 10 vehicles were honored for delivering outstanding user experiences.
The all-new Elantra truly advances ahead of the compact car class with innovative technology that enhances driver confidence and convenience, without the premium price.
