The All New Hyundai Elantra was named to the inaugural Wards 10 Best User Experiences (UX) list. The Elantra is recognized as a value leader in this year’s competition for its user-friendliness and sophistication.
“We are honored the Elantra is included in the Wards 10 Best User Experiences list among the likes of luxury models,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America.
“The Elantra was designed with advanced technology and premium convenience to bring our customers an exceptional user-friendly driving experience at a great price.”
The 2016 Wards 10 Best UX competition was created as a spin-off of 10 Best Interiors. Wards 10 Best UX drills deeply into the user-friendliness of vehicle systems designed to minimize distraction and frustration, prevent accidents and improve safety.
Points are awarded based on a vehicle’s performance in the areas of connectivity, intuitive controls, displays, materials, infotainment and driver-assistance systems. Are there any “surprise and delight” elements to the user experience? Finally, there is no price cap, but a vehicle’s overall value is considered as well. Wards Auto editors evaluated 29 all-new or significantly redesigned light vehicles available in the U.S. Only 10 vehicles were honored for delivering outstanding user experiences.
The all-new Elantra truly advances ahead of the compact car class with innovative technology that enhances driver confidence and convenience, without the premium price.
