Actually, Hyundai makes it easy for you if you have a floor jack. My car has six hard points that I'm supposed to use for jacking with a floor jack and jack stands.
Four of these hard points are near the wheels where the unibody panels meet. This is always a very strong point in unibody construction. These are where you can put your jackstands.
Hyundai also gives you a front and back hard point for floor jacks to jack up either the entire front or rear in one operation. Right in front on the crossmember which also holds the engine mounts, there's a flat spot which is a hard point for jacking. Use this hard point and jack up the front, slip your jackstands under the side hardpoints.
Same arrangement in the rear, there is a hardpoint in the middle back there.
