Hyundai, Kia Offering $1,000 Incentives on SUVs
Reviewers have taken a liking to the newly released Sorento. The 2011 model is likely to sell well based on the available features of the SUV.
Some reporters are suggesting that the incentive may be in place to increase the word-of-mouth interest in the new model.
The Hyundai Santa Fe is another economical SUV choice, made all the more so by a similar incentive for buyers through the end of the month. It recently went on sale and is available with more fuel-efficient engines that could lighten the load on buyer's wallets as well.
The incentives will knock the price of a Santa Fe down to just under $21,000 to start, although prices can range up to $30,295 with additional options and more powerful engines. Both the Santa Fe and Sorento are equipped with a variety of features, even in base models.
