"An exceptionally strong post-Christmas sales blitz enabled Hyundai to shatter our annual sales record which was set just last year," said Dave Zuchowski, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America.  "All year-end indicators appear to be signaling a robust economic environment for 2014. Home prices are back to their pre-recession levels, jobless rates are continuing to decline, and consumer confidence is on the upswing.  This is welcome news for the automotive sector and at Hyundai we're particularly excited to be ringing in the New Year."

Hyundai's all-new Genesis sedan will launch later this month at the North American International Auto Show and the completely redesigned Sonata will arrive later in the spring, taking the breadth and depth of the Hyundai line-up to unparalleled heights.
