Over the last decade, Hyundai has shown a new side to its personality, moving away from dull and mundane-looking vehicles. Every new vehicle coming from the automaker's stable has stylish new looks with loads of pizzazz, making its cars rather appealing.

The automaker's offerings are also good value for money and come with extensive warranty and service plans.

The Tucson found favour with 334 new owners, while the smaller Creta sold 221 units. 

The Accent, another underrated offering, proves to be value for money as a family car, sold 168 units, while both the H1 van and the beautiful Elantra sedan moved 71 units each.

The large Sante Fe SUV found 63 new owners while the Kona moved 45 new models.
