FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 – Hyundai’s award-winning Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Program added to its accolades as Velsoter and Santa Fe won their category in the 2014 Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards. Hyundai’s three-door sporty coupe won in the subcompact coupe segment, while Santa Fe beat out all other CUV competitors in the mid-size crossover category.
“Hyundai’s CPO program gives customers an added level of comfort, satisfaction and peace of mind in their vehicle purchase,” said Steve Flood, director, Sales Planning and Retail Operations, Hyundai Motor America. “By selecting a Hyundai CPO vehicle, consumers receive $2,066* of added value over a comparable non-certified used Hyundai. Velsoter and Santa Fe are both excellent vehicles offering stylish design and functionality for different lifestyles, and as these awards show, great value.”
The Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards are vehicle-specific honors that determine the best value certified pre-owned model in each segment. Using a statistical analysis, the company identified the Vincentric Best CPO Value in America winners by measuring which vehicles had lower-than-expected ownership costs given their market segment and price.
Vincentric measures cost of ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs. Each CPO vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus D.C. assuming each has been driven 15,000 miles per year, with the expectation that they will be driven an additional 15,000 miles per year over the coming five years.
