FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2013 Hyundai
Veloster was named the winner in the Non-Luxury Sport Car segment at the
annual Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards, presented last night at the Automotive
News World Congress in Detroit.


The Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards are presented to OEMs and brands that
demonstrate a manufacturer's ability to retain owners over repeat buying
cycles. Loyalty is determined when a household that owns a new vehicle returns
to market and purchases or leases another new vehicle of the same model or

IHS Automotive tracks owner loyalty throughout the year and regularly works
with its customers to effectively manage owner loyalty and conquest efforts
through in-depth analysis of automotive shopping behaviors, related market
influencers and development of retention and conquest strategies. This year's
awards are based on an analysis of more than 7.4 million new vehicle
registrations during the 2013 model year.

"Hyundai owners truly love their cars, so it's no surprise that Veloster is
being recognized in Polk's loyalty awards this year," said Scott Margason,
director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. "With a unique third door
and advanced technology features, the Veloster offers sporty coupe shoppers
many reasons to remain loyal to our vehicles and the Hyundai brand."
