For the second year in a row, Hyundai ranked as the second-highest non-premium vehicle brand in the 2019 study. This is thanks to Hyundai owners reporting three fewer problems per 100 vehicles than in 2018, improving upon an already successful year. 

Various Hyundai vehicles also made their mark throughout the study, as models such as the Santa Fe received the midsize SUV award, as the model was one of only three models to win one of the 21 segments in its launch year. Other vehicles such as the Tucson, Accent, Veloster and Elantra also each finished second in their respective segments, as other popular Hyundai models such as the Kona and Sonata ranked third in their segments.
