At Pohanka Hyundai, our Hyundai Dealership in VA, we have always said that the Hyundai Genesis and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport are two of the best bangs for your buck out there, and we’re pleased to learn that they recently earned the “Best Buy” awards from Consumer Guide Automotive in their respective divisions. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport was awarded the “Best Buy” award for the midsize crossover/SUV category, and the Hyundai Genesis was awarded the “Best Buy” award for the large car category.
“The Best Buy accolade from Consumer Guide Automotive demonstrates the unprecedented value across our lineup—from the Santa Fe crossover to the Genesis midsize luxury sedan. We won this award two years in a row, which is a testament to our continued emphasis on producing vehicles with high value and driving experience,” said Brandon Ramirez, senior group manager, product planning, Hyundai Motor America.
The criteria used by Consumer Guide Automotive to evaluate vehicles included price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability, and resale value. In addition, drivers for Consumer Guide Automotive test drove each of the vehicles in a variety of conditions to evaluate their practicality and adaptability.
At Pohanka Hyundai, our VA Hyundai dealer, we’re proud to offer both the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the 2016 Hyundai Genesis. Here’s a little bit of what you can expect from this year’s new models:
The practical 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport improved on the ride and handling of previous models by enhancing the electric power steering and suspension. It also updated its Driver Selectable Steering Mode with a 32-bit microprocessor and tuned it for the firmer steering feel that was made possible by the redesigned suspension system.
The sporty 2016 Hyundai Genesis upgraded its premium-market appeal when it made HID headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights standard on all 2016 models, and added ultra-premium LED fog lights to the range of options available for the 3.8 model. The 2016 Genesis 5.0 models have done away with some of the previously available trims, refining the model’s signature look to the fully-equipped Ultimate trim designation.
While we’d be happy to tell you all about it here, the best way to see the incredible value and quality of these vehicles is to drop by or give us a call at (800) 764-2652 and see for yourself!

Right off the bat, the team at our VA Hyundai dealership could provide you with a laundry list of the qualities that make driving a Hyundai such a riveting experience. From the powertrains tucked under the hoods of your favorite models to the sense of control that you find in the driver’s seat, nothing quite compares to starting up the engine and hitting the road.
Many of us, though, are so fixated on our love of driving that we tend to forget about the perks that come with being a passenger. After all, you don’t have to dislike driving to enjoy taking over as co-pilot for a while!
When you check out the 2016 Hyundai model lineup at our VA showroom, it won’t take long to see that comfort isn’t a quality that’s exclusive to the driver’s seat. With available features in many models that include heated and ventilated front seats, leather trim, and multi-directional adjustable support, it isn’t hard to get comfortable.
Of course, the mantle of co-pilot comes with its share of responsibilities. One timeless duty that comes with the shotgun seat is the role of navigator. Fortunately, Hyundai’s available touchscreen navigation systems with voice-recognition have taken the grunt work out of the equation. Even so, riding up front gives you the best vantage point for spotting the next greasy spoon diner you’ll be stopping at on your road trip!
Since you won’t need to spend your time up front struggling to fold a map back up, you can commit your full focus to crafting the perfect playlist for the road ahead. Whether you’re plugging in your MP3 player, streaming audio with Bluetooth, or kicking it old school with that perfect mix CD, everyone knows that passengers make the best DJs.
From behind the wheel to the backseat, Hyundai is focused on crafting the perfect machines for the open road. To learn more about the automaker’s latest models, or to schedule a test drive, be sure to contact us online or to call the Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg team at (800) 764-2652 today!

As the days leading up to the holidays are ticked off the calendar one by one, many drivers still have plenty of preparation to take care of. One errand that many people put off until the last minute is their holiday shopping.
While many members of the team at our VA Hyundai dealer love shopping for the holidays, we all know that this enjoyable pastime can become a bit more stressful when the stores are packed with fellow last minute shoppers.
Of course, most of the trouble you’ll encounter isn’t even in the mall; it’s in the parking lot! From finding a spot to avoiding a fender bender in a crowded lot, it’s important to keep your wits about you to help ensure a smooth start to your holiday shopping outing.
Before you even get to the mall, put some thought into how you plan to get there. As the staff at our Hyundai dealership in VA can attest, the main entrance to the parking lot is much more likely to be bottlenecked. In a lot of cases, this can even lead to added traffic on the highway outside during key shopping days.
Instead, set your sights on an alternate entrance if one is available, and plan on parking a bit further than you usually would. By choosing a less densely occupied area, you’ll avoid potential accidents, have an easier time finding a spot, and even reduce the likelihood of having another driver put a ding in your beloved Hyundai.
Finally, be sure to make a note of where you’re parking! It can be tough to find your car in a crowded lot, especially is holiday crowding has caused you to park in an area that you’re less familiar with.
Whether you’re searching for the perfect gifts for family and friends or doing a bit of shopping for yourself, taking the right approach to your visit can help keep the fun in holiday shopping. If you’re looking to buy the ultimate gift, be sure to contact Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg online or to call our team at (800) 764-2652 to learn more about the 2015 Hyundai lineup!
