For Sale or Lease in Erie, PA

Comfortable and practical accommodations, appealing amenities, eco-friendly powertrain options, and standout styling are just a few reasons why Pennsylvania Hyundai owners love what they drive. Hyundai models also deliver confidence behind the wheel. Sophisticated frame and chassis construction and advanced SmartSense safety technologies have helped Hyundai become one of the most awarded automakers by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), with eight models earning a Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ designation for 2022.

To qualify for an IIHS Top Safety Pick award, a vehicle needs to score the highest possible rating of "Good" for all six crashworthiness evaluations. It must also offer a frontal collision mitigation system scoring "Advanced" or "Superior" and have available headlamps rated "Acceptable" or "Good." The "+" (plus) designation is reserved for vehicles that come standard with "Good"-rated headlights.

With IIHS Top Safety Pick recipients representing the industry's most popular segments, Hyundai offers confidence-inspiring vehicles to serve a wide range of needs and preferences. Here's a quick overview of the TSP models you can buy or lease from Dave Hallman Hyundai.
