OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. – Earlier this month, MAMA welcomed Hyundai to Redstone American Grill in Oakbrook Terrace to talk about the redesigned 2015 Hyundai Sonata.
Mike O'Brien, Vice President of Corporate and Product Planning for Hyundai, and John Shon, Manager of Product Planning, stopped by to talk about the new Sonata. O'Brien spoke to gathered MAMA members, giving a slide presentation that took an in-depth look at Hyundai's redesigned Accord- and Camry-fighter.
ELKHART LAKE, Wisc. – Perhaps as a make-good for 2013's cold and rainy weather, the sun welcomed MAMA to the famed Road America racetrack in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, for this year's Spring Rally.
The festivities actually started the night before, as out-of-town media, manufacturer reps, and MAMA Rally Committee members gathered for a Wisconsin fish-fry dinner at Lake St. Café, just blocks from the Osthoff resort, which was home base for Rally attendees.
To qualify for the award, vehicles had to have four doors, start at less than $50,000, appear at one of MAMA’s two annual rallies, and be new or significantly updated within a year of the 2013 Spring Rally, which took place last May. The MAMA Spring and Fall rallies feature up to 100 manufacturer vehicles for journalists to drive and evaluate.
Voting took place at each rally, creating a list of 12 2014 contenders: the Acura MDX, Cadillac CTS, Chevrolet Impala, Dodge Durango, Fiat 500L, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Cherokee, Mazda Mazda3, Mazda Mazda6, Nissan Pathfinder, and Subaru Forester.
And the winner is ... The Chevrolet Impala. => Read more.
