COSTA MESA, Calif. — Financial services provider USAA named the 2012 Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan as a 2012 “Best Value” vehicle pick. USAA rated cars in 16 categories with a proprietary vehicle rating system using quantitative data that factors in cost, safety, reliability and fuel economy. The Genesis won in the large luxury sedan category, and its smaller economy cousin, the Elantra, topped the small sedan category.
“The goal of the list is to help members identify vehicles that typically offer better safety ratings, lower insurance premium costs, higher fuel economy, better overall reliability and lower MSRP compared to other vehicles in the same category,” said Steve Thompson, assistant vice president, USAA. “
Hyundai’s Genesis sedan, the 2009 North American Car of the Year, continues its segment leadership in 2012 with exterior design improvements, new direct injection technology for its Lambda V6 engine, new eight-speed automatic transmissions, and enhanced chassis tuning. In addition, a new 5.0-liter direct injection V8 engine is now available exclusively with the 5.0 R-Spec model, which includes unique 19-inch machined-finish alloy wheels, optional Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position summer performance tires and sport-tuned transmission, suspension and steering calibrations for exhilarating vehicle dynamics.
USAA “Best Value” vehicles are vehicles ranked highest in each vehicle category, obtain "Good/Acceptable" crash test ratings from IIHS and represent vehicles which are determined to be the best financial value using a USAA-developed proprietary statistical model. The model relates MSRP to vehicle features (engine type, drive train, electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, number of airbags, transmission, body additions, curb weight, horsepower-to-curb weight, height and vehicle category), fuel economy, insurance cost, additional warranty cost, depreciation, and IIHS Top Safety Pick to determine the value. In providing this analysis, USAA does not consider factors other than those disclosed.
USAA provides insurance, banking, investment and retirement products and services to 9 million members of the U.S. military and their families. Membership is open to all who are serving or have honorably served our nation in the U.S. military – and their eligible family members.
