FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA -- Aug. 1, 2014: Hyundai Motor America, recently ranked the highest non-premium brand in J.D. Power's APEAL and IQS reports, posted its best July sales ever. Sales for the month were 67,011 units, up 1.5 percent compared with the same period in 2013. The Sonata had another strong month with sales of 22,577 up 19 percent while the Santa Fe recorded sales of 8,655, up 26 percent.

"As the summer weather heated up across the country, so did the selling season," said Bob Pradzinski, vice president of national sales, Hyundai Motor America. "With 2015 models beginning to hit showrooms, incentive spend up across major brands and competitive financing available, it's a buyers' market that many shoppers took advantage of."

The 2015 Genesis and Equus, Hyundai's premium models, both saw sales gains for the month, up 5 percent and 76 percent, respectively.
