  Hyundai Motor America today reported October sales of Hyundai and Genesis branded vehicles of 53,010 units, a 15 percent decline in comparison with the company’s all-time best October in 2016. Hyundai’s lineup of CUVs continues to drive growth as it sets monthly October sales records for combined CUV sales (up 12 percent), Tucson (up 8 percent) and Santa Fe (up 15 percent). The reduction in fleet sales, down 23 percent from a year ago, is a contributing factor to the overall sales decrease.
