This is the second time that the Elantra has earned this prestigious award (the first time was in 2012), and the Elantra is just the third vehicle ever to win the award twice.


The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) automotive media jury, made up of 50 American and Canadian journalists, selected this year’s top car, SUV and truck from 40 different makes and models. To win, the Elantra had to come out on top of three rounds of voting.
