2.    Safety

How do Hyundai models promote safer driving and roads for passengers and pedestrians? Driver assistance technologies and a strong body provide the protection your drive needs. While driver assistance features such as Lane Departure Warning help alert you in various situations that commonly cause collisions, high-strength steel alloys concocted at the Hyundai steel plant provide ultimate protection. Check out the Hyundai safety features in the following list:

  • Lane Departure Warning alerts you of vehicles you can't see as you switch to another lane
  • Lane Keep Assist applies corrective steering when drifting is detected
  • Blind Spot Detection w/Rear Cross-Traffic Alert informs you of vehicles in your blind spot and approaching from the sides as you reverse
  • Automatic Emergency Braking w/Pedestrian Detection applies the brakes if you don't react quickly enough when a pedestrian or preceding vehicle is detected
  • Brake Assist increases brake pressure when you stop suddenly to help bring the vehicle to a stop
  • Rear Parking Sensors help you avoid hitting the car behind you as you squeeze into a tight spot

3.    Made in America

Did you know that over half of Hyundai cars and SUVs sold in the U.S. are made right here on American soil? Between the Alabama manufacturing facility, 220,000-sq. ft. state-of-the-art engineering and technology center in Michigan, and 4,300-acre test facility in California, an estimated 5,000 jobs are provided for Americans. When you consider the additional 32,000 employees and 6,000 vendors, Hyundai helps stimulate the American economy beyond selling cars and SUVs. And when you purchase a model from the extensive used and new inventory at Medlin Hyundai in Rocky Mount, NC, you are too!

4.    Hyundai Assurance

Hyundai Assurance is a comprehensive package of services that helps make your ownership experience as enjoyable as possible. If your car becomes disabled, five years of 24/7 roadside assistance* will tow, unlock, refuel, and provide dead battery

5.    America's Best Warranty

As the original owner, you will benefit from comprehensive coverage for select repairs and replacement parts with extensive warranty terms, which is why it's called America's best warranty. Check out what's included in the list below.
