HYUNDAI BRAND HIGHLIGHTS
“While July proved to be tough for the entire industry, the Hyundai Tucson achieved another record-breaking month and our CUV sales were the second best in Hyundai history,” said Sam Brnovich, executive director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “We continue to substantially decrease our fleet sales and when the 2016 comparable is an all-time best month, it leads to an overall decrease. We have a positive outlook for the remainder of the year as our brand metrics such as consideration, opinion and dealer leads are strong. With the 2018 Sonata being well-received and the success of our CUVs, we are working hard with our dealers to increase retail sales for the year.”
