Hyundai Veloster and Elantra Win Vincentric’s Best Value in America Award

2016 Hyundai Veloster - Vincentric's Best Value in America Award

The 2016 Hyundai Veloster and 2016 Hyundai Elantra have earned Vincentric’s Best Value in America Award, marking the fourth and second consecutive year the two cars receive the honor, respectively.

Vincentric is an automotive research firm that specializes in determining the cost of owning a car. Every year, it measures the cost of ownership using eight different key factors, including financing, fuel, insurance, depreciation, opportunity cost, fees and taxes, and repairs. It measures the vehicles that had lower-than-expected ownership costs and ranks them in the appropriate segment.

The 2016 Hyundai Veloster offered the “Best Value in America” in the sports car segment and the 2016 Hyundai Elantra in the compact hatchback segment. This gives you double the opportunities to purchase a great vehicle, whichever type of car you prefer!

“The Veloster has a strong history of performing well in our awards analysis, delivering a low cost-of-ownership package that helps provide high value to consumers,” said David Wurster, president of Vincentric. “The Elantra similarly delivers class-leading value, is fuel efficient and inexpensive to maintain, offering drivers exceptional value for the money.”

Prodrive and Subaru Team Up to Set New Isle of Man Record

 

2016 Subaru WRX STI - Isle of Man Record

Prodrive and Subaru have teamed up once again, to set a new Isle of Man record on the TT Course. Prodrive is famous for building Subaru rally cars from 1990 to 2008, so there’s a lot of buzz surrounding this latest collaboration. In the last 8 years there have been many technological advancements, so this collaboration should be very exciting to all racing fans.

The engineering group is tuning a Subaru WRX STI to set a new record attempt before the 2016 Isle of Man TT kicks off on May 28th. The cabin has been stripped out of all unnecessary equipment, even including door panels and carpet. It also boasts a full body kit complete with flared fenders and a large wing at the rear.

Mark Higgins, the three-time British Rally Champion who has already broken the Isle of Man record several times in the past—and who holds the current record with a bone stock 2015 WRX STI—will be at the wheel of the Prodrive-tuned car. So far, his best time is 19 minutes and 15 seconds. That’s pretty impressive for a 37-mile circuit – that’s an average speed of just over 115 mph! At Joseph Auto, we’re hoping he can do it under 19 minutes!
