“At Hyundai, we are incredibly proud of the Santa Fe and humbled it was named the best-in-class mid-sized SUV by the New England Motor Press Association. For the 2020 model year, Santa Fe includes additional safety features and repackaged equipment to better meet the needs of our buyers, especially in winter conditions.”

– Scott Margason, Director of Product Planning, Hyundai Motor North America

How does a vehicle win?

Each year, members of the NEMPA analyze a number of vehicles throughout the winter months in order to test things like their agility and other abilities during the harsh road conditions associated with the season. The New England area is a great place for these tests, considering the area’s population and geography, which is what makes these awards so important. In order for a vehicle to win, it must showcase an enjoyable experience each time you slide behind the wheel during these conditions, but also a safe one and, of course, the vehicle must offer several winterized features as well.
