COSTA MESA, Calif. — Intellichoice and AutoPacific honored the Hyundai Genesis with the 2011 Motorist Choice Award in the luxury lifestyle category. This is the second year in a row the Genesis has received a Motorist Choice Award.
“With power and technology features rivaling more expensive vehicles in the luxury segment, Genesis is a great option for car buyers seeking quality and reliability,” said Scott Margason, director of product planning for Hyundai Motor America.
Now in its sixth year, the Motorist Choice Awards were co-developed by AutoPacific, known for its vehicle satisfaction rankings, and IntelliChoice.com, the online source for automotive ownership cost and value analysis. The awards recognize the vehicles that delivered the highest consumer satisfaction and the lowest cost of ownership.
“The Motorist Choice Award methodology is designed to help consumers identify vehicles that speak to their hearts and their wallets,” said Tyler Schulze, vice president and general manager of IntelliChoice. “The 2011 award winners all share a connection with buyers from both a satisfaction standpoint and overall value as compared to their peers. Based on this compelling combination, we are pleased to recommend these vehicles to consumers as a guide for good purchase decisions.”
