Hyundai Elantra Becomes America's Most Stolen Vehicle, Overtaking Chevy Silverado

Unexpectedly, the Hyundai Elantra will surpass the Chevy Silverado as the most stolen vehicle in the United States in 2023.

Different from what most people thought, the list's best car is from South Korea, not the U.S.

 This information comes after several Hyundai and Kia car thefts, making these brands apparent targets.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) has found a rise in the theft of Korean cars. Hyundai and Kia models are among the most stolen vehicles in the-

United States, with the Elantra, Sonata, and Optima being the most popular. People aren't as interested in cars like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500,

which used to be a top pick but is now in fourth place. Trends have changed a lot, as shown by this change.

It's only sometimes valid that more cars are being stolen in the U.S. because Hyundai and Kia cars are among the most stolen vehicles in 2023.

 The number of reported stolen cars increased by a small amount, to 1,020,729, continuing the growth trend, though only by 1% compared to the previous year.

Recovery rates are still high; police find more than 85% of stolen cars, often within a day of the theft being reported.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) says that people who own cars should park in well-lit areas, ensure the windows are closed and-

locked, hide any belongings, and never leave their vehicles running while they're not there.
