Car and Driver magazine is recognizing six Hyundai vehicles with Editors’ Choice Awards for 2019.

For these awards, an expansion of the magazine’s 10Best Cars for 2019, Car and Driver’s editors assessed nearly 500 vehicles, selecting the leading models for each segment. Winners were chosen based on criteria like safety, performance, design, and value.

“Coming off the heels of Hyundai Kona and Kona Electric being named a 10Best Truck and SUV, we’re thrilled that Car and Driver, one of the most trusted names in the automotive industry, has listed four more of our models among the top of its recommended list for those in the market for a new vehicle,” said Mike O’Brien, Hyundai Motor America’s vice president of product, corporate, and digital planning.

Here’s a look at the Hyundai models that made Car and Driver’s final cut.
