“The CUV growth trend for Hyundai continues as customers are able to find the right size, versatility and performance from Tucson and Santa Fe in highly competitive segments,” said John Angevine, director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “With two months remaining in the year, our focus is on maintaining retail market share and working closely with our dealers for a strong close to 2017.”

In October, Hyundai displayed its commitment to making things better for its customers with several corporate and product initiatives. Earlier in the month, Hyundai launched its new Shopper Assurance program in Dallas, Houston, Orlando and Miami, offering customers a streamlined and modernized car buying experience. Hyundai also introduced a new Rear Occupant Alert system and showcased the aftermarket potential of its vehicles by unveiling four unique custom-builds at the SEMA Show, while drivers of its Tucson Fuel Cell accumulated more than 3 million zero-emission miles since the vehicle’s launch.
