Hyundai sales soar in U.S. amid Toyota recall

South Korea’s top automaker Hyundai Motor said on Feb. 3 that its U.S. sales jumped by almost a quarter last month, as Japanese rival Toyota grappled with a massive recall.

Hyundai Motor America said it sold 30,503 vehicles in January, up 24% from a year earlier. It said the new figure accounted for 4.7% of the total U.S. auto market in January.
