The study by the Southern California-based automotive research firm summarizes the results of responses from over 52,000 new vehicle owners. AutoPacific’s VSA awards objectively measure owner satisfaction, with 51 vehicle attributes covered, ranging from interior comfort and convenience to fuel economy and performance.

“Winning AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Award confirms that the Hyundai Genesis has joined the big league,” said George Peterson, President, AutoPacific. “Out-pointing all other Aspirational Luxury Cars, Genesis has won this award four out of the last five years. This proves that Genesis is a smart buy for drivers wanting an excellent car and excellent value.”

“The Hyundai Veloster is a sporty car with extremely aggressive styling that resonates with its buyers,” continued Peterson. “With an attractive price point and head-turning styling, Veloster tops the AutoPacific satisfaction ratings, with its owners giving very positive reviews.”

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe features a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CWT), dual asymmetrical chrome exhaust tips, LED tail lights and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls. The Veloster has a unique three door design, and the turbo model features a 1.6 litre direct-injected twin-scroll turbocharged engine, aggressive bodykit and 18-inch alloy wheels.

“The AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards are an important indicator that Hyundai is continuing to hit the mark when it comes to pleasing consumers,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “We are pleased that both Genesis and Veloster owners rank their purchase decisions so highly – an excellent reflection on both of these class-leading vehicles.”

The next-generation Genesis Coupe will be produced in right-hand-drive and Hyundai Motor Company Australia has confirmed that it will be sold in this market.
