2013 Hyundai AJAC Awards
The results from the 2013 AJAC awards are in and one thing is for sure, Hyundai is a big winner! The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) is a professional organization created to promote, encourage, support and facilitate professionalism in Canadian automotive journalism and to ensure factual and ethical reporting about the automobile and automotive issues.
During the 2013 AJAC awards, it was clear that the star of the night was the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T. Taking home two 2013 AJAC awards, the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T wasn’t the lone Hyundai vehicle to bring home an award, with the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT also claiming an award as well.
The three 2013 AJAC awards for Hyundai on the night were as follows:
- Best New SUV / CUV ($35,000 – $60,000) – Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T
- Best New Small Car (over $21,000) – Hyundai Elantra GT
- Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year – Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
While any recognition from the AJAC awards is noteworthy, to be named the 2013 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year is truly an incredible accomplishment. The AJAC is a prestigious organization whose members strive to provide honest, informed, accurate and original perspective of the vehicles they review and the subjects that they cover.
AJAC members who review vehicles base their opinions on first-hand experience behind the wheel, which may be supplemented by data produced independently by AJAC at its annual Canadian Car of the Year program, information supplied by the manufacturer as well as other credible sources.
Honesty, integrity and credibility are cornerstones of both the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T, the Hyundai Elantra GT and indeed the entire Hyundai vehicle lineup. To be recognized and awarded by such a prestigious organization is a distinction that clearly puts Hyundai at the forefront of the Canadian automotive industry.
