Contrary to popular belief the Super Bowl MVP hasn’t received a free car since 2015.
It’s been a long tradition for the Super Bowl MVP to get a free car since 1967 but ever since Hyundai took over as official car of the MVP in 2015, no free cars have been given out after the Super Bowl. That means, like last year and the years before that, Kansas City Chief Quarterback Patrick Mahomes will not get a free car from Hyundai for being the 2020 Super Bowl MVP.Embed from Getty Images
You shouldn’t feel bad for Patrick Mahomes for not getting a free car because he already got a free car for his golden arm this year. Patrick earned himself a 2019 Genesis G70 for his stellar performance that garnered him 2019’s Pro-Bowl MVP title.
The last time a car was given out as a free gift to a Super Bowl MVP was in 2015 when Quarterback champ Tom Brady received a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. Shortly after, the world found out that Tom Brady handed over the keys to his new mid-sized truck to the real hero of the 2015 Super Bowl, Malcolm Butler.
Like I said last year, the best MVP car in my opinion had to be 2005 MVP Champ Deion Branch’s choice, a 2005 Cadillac XLR.Embed from Getty Images
Hyundai should definitely bring back the “free car to an MVP” tradition. For one, Hyundai has a pretty stellar lineup. If Patrick Mahomes had his pick, he could choose from the 2020 Hyundai Veloster N with 275 HP or the upcoming 2020 Genesis GV80 to compliment his G70.
