Hyundai Wins Two Favorite Vehicle Awards From Midwest Automotive Media Association


FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai led with two favorite vehicle awards at the Midwest Automotive Media Associations' (MAMA) recent Spring Rally in Elkhart Lake, WI. The award-winning, all-electric 2025 IONIQ 5 N was named Favorite Performance Vehicle, and the Hyundai Santa Fe was named Favorite Family Vehicle by MAMA's attending 100 media members. Each of the vehicles are now candidates for MAMA's Favorite Vehicle of the Year to be announced at the 2025 Chicago Auto Show. Around 80 new vehicles were evaluated at the Spring Rally by MAMA members.

"As we continue to celebrate Hyundai EVs being the most awarded in the industry, we are humbled to also be recognized for our redesigned Santa Fe," said Ricky Lao, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor North America. "Having the opportunity to showcase our newest vehicles at the recent MAMA Spring Rally provides Hyundai access to automotive press who represent hundreds of media outlets; we appreciate receiving two 'favorite vehicle' votes as a result."

"Hyundai's eclectic mix of new vehicles continues to impress both consumers and our organization's nationwide membership of journalists, analysts, and media professionals," said Robert Duffer, president, MAMA. "Hyundai not only brought home one coveted 'MAMA's Favorites' award, but two, showing the brand's commitment to having a winner in every segment possible. While the redesigned Santa Fe is surely a showstopper of a family hauler, the IONIQ 5 N proved its truly a high-performance track car around the infamous Road America circuit."
