Three Hyundai Models Awarded with Great Design and Impact on Drivers

Hyundai Vehicles Recognized with 2018 IDEA Awards 

When it comes to Hyundai vehicles, they’re more than just a way to get from point A to point B. Hyundai vehicles are often a vital part to people and families’ lives and help make their lives more convenient. Because of this, a few Hyundai vehicles were recognized with the 2018 IDEA awards. So, what do these awards mean? Let’s take a look. 

2018 International Design Excellence Awards 

The International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) come from the Industrial Designers Society of America. Each year, the society looks at new technologies and tools that generate a ton of sales, save lives, change lives and the way people think, or even some that change the way people live, work and play. The winners are then categorized into Gold, Silver and Bronze tiers, as past winners included the original iPhone, the Tesla Model S and the Oculus Rift VR Headset.

“As the automotive landscape continues to change, we are pushing creative boundaries with designs that reflect today’s vehicle drivers and owners. We are honored to see several vehicles recognized in this category, as it is a testament to our passion for ingenuity across our Hyundai lineup.”

-Chris Chapman, senior chief designer, Hyundai Design Center
