FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 4, 2014 – Hyundai’s top-selling SUV, the 2014 Santa Fe was named one of the “Best Family SUVs of 2014” in the seventh annual Parents magazine and Edmunds.com “Best Family Cars” Awards. The Santa Fe and all other winners will appear in the July issue of Parents magazine and online at www.parents.com/best-family-cars.
“Families expect a lot from their vehicles,” says Parents Editor-in-Chief Dana Points. “Safety is every parent’s top priority, and we’re excited by how many manufacturers are now offering blind-spot mirrors and collision-avoidance systems in addition to multiple airbags and government-required electronic stability control.”
Car experts from Parents magazine and Edmunds.com determine the top 10 family cars by examining hundreds of vehicles and whittling the list to the safest, most reliable, best performing family-friendly vehicles. All the cars share the features that make daily and family journeys easier, such as reliability, impressive mileage and ample cargo capacity.
“The 2014 Santa Fe is a family-friendly vehicle that combines fun-to-drive elements with the most technologically advanced safety features like Blind Spot Detection and Downhill Brake Control,” said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “We’re honored to receive this award from the experts at Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com, as it demonstrates the success we’ve achieved by introducing a truly multi-functional SUV to the market.”
The 2014 Santa Fe delivers bold design, premium comfort and a host of other safety and technology features including rear parking assistance, standard vehicle stability management, anti-lock braking system and seven airbags. The Santa Fe is powered by the highly acclaimed 3.3-liter V6 engine offering great fuel economy, drivability and a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs.
