According to Korean auto maker Hyundai, its new Accent vehicle was the best-selling sub-compact car for the month of July. July was the first full month of sales for this vehicle, which combines modern style and good fuel economy for the road. In an August 8 press release, Hyundai presented a very minimal chart (without sourcing or orienting data) showing the Hyundai Accent at the top of the list of small cars, with a figure of 6,938 that, while not labeled, is probably supposed to represent units sold per month. The Nissan Versa comes in next with just over 5000 units, followed by the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit.
In discussing why the Hyundai Accent beat the Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta models, staffers at Hyundai mentioned the fuel savings that this car generates, as well as a guarantee on trade-in value from participating dealerships. Generally, consumers are selecting these kinds of small cars anticipating that gas prices might be all over the chart through this year and the next.
The 2012 Hyundai Accent is part of a full 2012 lineup appearing on American lots this season. Other models include the Hyundai Elantra, the Sonata and Sonata Hybrid, and the 2012 Hyundai Veloster. All of these are becoming attractive choices for car buyers who are looking for something new and different, as Hyundai has been edging up to the big Japanese car makers for years. Staffers also cite the 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty as well as roadside assistance as other incentives for buying one of their high miles per gallon vehicles. All of this seems to really appeal to American buyers as the Hyundai Accent dominates consumer reports lists and puts its mark on today’s auto industry.
When you want one of these top-selling vehicles, take a look at current financing offers from the maker to get a better deal and walk away from your purchase with less debt. Right now, some analysts are claiming that 0% is available in some areas, but you’ll need to find specific offers in your area to really know the market and how to get a bargain on financing one of these new models. Don’t forget to also take a look at pre-owned Hyundai vehicles to get just what you need without extra cost.
