The thing that prompts many new car purchases is a change in your personal life. Life changes, such as expanding your family, a recent graduation from college, or new empty nester status, often necessitate the purchase of a new vehicle. The car that suited you when you were a 16-year-old beginner driver likely isn’t going to be a great choice for when you’re driving your children around the Jackson, NJ area. Here are the top new Hyundai vehicle picks for each life stage from the experts at our dealership.

Teenage Drivers: When buying a new Hyundai car for a beginning driver, consider an affordable model that provides the latest safety features. Teen accident rates are higher than other groups, so crash test ratings are especially important. We recommended nimble cars with top-flight safety such as the 2019 Hyundai Elantra.

First-Job Commuter: When you first enter the workforce, you might be facing a long car commute for the first time. If this is the case, consider a car that prioritizes comfort and in-cabin tech features that allow you to stay connected to your smartphone. Our recommendation for this age group is the 2019 Hyundai Accent.

New Parents: When you add a couple of kids to your family, you’re going to want a vehicle with plenty of cabin space and creature comforts. Safety is also a priority, so consider a modern crossover SUV like the 2019 Hyundai Kona.

Retirees: Older adults should consider vehicles that are easy to enter and exit, vehicles with modern driver assistance features, and vehicles with easy-to-use infotainment systems. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe fills in all the blanks for this category of driver.
