Here in Lexington Kentucky, we love our cars and we love our Kentucky Wildcat Basketball team! At Glenn Hyundai, our favorite makes of Hyundai are the Elantra, Genesis, Tucson, and Sonata, because we know they’ll get you and your family to the next Wildcats game in comfort and safety. But if we had to choose one, we think the Elantra would be the #1 pick for Kentucky Wildcat basketball fans, and here’s why:
Great track record
Both the Wildcats and the Hyundai Elantra have accomplished some pretty impressive feats. The Wildcats finished the 2010-11 season with a 29-9 record. This year, the 2015 Hyundai Elantra is #1 in safety, earning an IIHS top safety pick award.
They both go the extra mile
According to Wikipedia, “The Wildcats have played in a record 53 NCAA Tournaments and 163 NCAA Tournament games, and hold the records for most Sweet Sixteen appearances (40), most Elite Eight appearances (35), and most total postseason tournament appearances (62).”
The Hyundai Elantra can boast that it has “A highly efficient 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that gets up to an EPA-estimated 38 MPG on the highway* standard on the Elantra…The Elantra Sport delivers up to 173 horsepower.” We’re fans already!
They know what they’re doing
For the Wildcats, recruiting the right players is no problem – they had a record six players drafted in the 2012 NBA Draft, including the first time two teammates have been chosen with the first two picks. For the Elantra, it’s knowing how to do safety right. Six airbags, a Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system. 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS. and a Top Safety Pick rating, it’s no wonder this is one of the 2015 IIHS top safety pick award winners!
At Glenn Hyundai we love basketball season as much as we love the new line of Hyundais, especially the Hyundai Elantra! If you’re gearing up to go watch the Kentucky Wildcats this season, stop by on your way to the next game and let us show you how the 2015 Hyundai Elantra is the perfect car for a Wildcats fan!
