Vincentric Best Value awards are based on an advanced statistical analysis model, taking into account the current market price and total cost of ownership of all 2024 model year vehicles.

In addition to securing the top spot in its segment, the 2024 M Hyundai Venue was also recognised by Vincentric for having the lowest total cost of ownership in the Subcompact SUV class.

Ricky Lao, Director of Product Planning at Hyundai Motor North America, emphasised the all-new Kona Electric’s advancements, something that we will soon experience in Australia for the first time as it rolls into our dealership showroom.

“The all-new Kona Electric is larger and more refined than its predecessor, incorporating advanced features like battery preconditioning, Digital Key 2 Touch and available Vehicle-to-Load bidirectional charging capability,” said Lao.

“As economic uncertainty continues to be a factor in today’s marketplace, we recognise the importance of providing attainable vehicles that go beyond merely meeting customers’ needs to deliver surprise-and-delight ownership experiences.”
