    A rare beast indeed at the moment, I've yet to see one on the roads. Proper luxury cruiser?
  10. 2016 Tucson fitting extra spotlights.....

    Unless there is anything from Hyundai, you'll likely need to fabricate something yourself. The mounting points will be the issue. Is the Tucson sold elsewhere around the world? Could be worth checking other international markets.
  11. The New i10 has been awarded What Car?’s Best City Car award for the 4th consecutive year, holding off both a new challenge from the Suzuki Celerio and the established competition from the Skoda Citigo. Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor said: “We have no hesitation in singling out the i10 as our winner: it’s cheap to buy and to run, comfy, and easy to drive in town. But it also has luxuries that you rarely get in this class, plus a five-year warranty. The i10 feels like a class above the rest, with the most room, the smartest interior and the smoothest engine. The i10 is a proper, grown-up car, not just a mere runaround, and that’s why it’s our favouritecity car.” The New i10 1.2 Premium SE also won “Best buy for more than £10,000”. Huntingford commented: “we recommend top-spec Premium SE trim, which now gets class-leading infotainment on a 7.0 inch touchscreen, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and a DAB radio. You also get climate control, heated seats and a heated steering wheel – all on a city car. The rest of the i10 remains as appealing as ever.” Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK said “Since its launch in 2014, i10 has continually received praise from both industry and buyers alike and has become one of the stalwarts of our range. For 2017, we have introduced New i10 which not only introduces a fresh new look but also brings technology to the segment that is usually only found in the classes above.”

  13. Hyundai has launched a new clear and consistent servicing offer called ‘eSENSEtials’ for out of warranty Hyundai vehicles. The new hassle-free ‘maintenance menu’ follows the launch of ‘Hyundai Sense Service Plans’ last autumn, and brings similar benefits to Hyundai owners whose cars exceed the generous five-year warranty period. Owners can choose from three eSENSEtials servicing tiers: Base, Interim and Full. The three tiers include the same core benefits, with all work completed by trained Hyundai technicians, plus all applicable engine management software updates, and a two-year Hyundai warranty on all parts fitted during the service. In addition, owners receive an official Hyundai stamp in the vehicle’s service book and have the car’s Digital Work Record updated. One of the most significant benefits is the inclusion of 12 months of free AA Roadside Assistance, offering year-round cover for breakdowns that occur more than 0.25 miles from home. Nick Tunnell, Aftersales Director of Hyundai UK, said: “Our new eSENSEtials plan bolsters the existing Hyundai Sense servicing programmes, offering customers peace of mind with genuine parts, Hyundai trained technicians and two years of warranty on parts fitted. The peace-of-mind approach, plus the addition of 12 months free AA Roadside Assistance helps to make ownership as straightforward and rewarding as possible for our customers.” The servicing packages are priced from just £99 for the Base service, which incorporates a 24-point check on the vehicle as well as an engine oil and filter renewal. A 29-point check is standard for Interim level servicing, which also includes brake- and clutch-fluid renewal for a total of £159. The Full service option involves a 35-point check, the replacement of spark plugs, climate filter, and additional vehicle fluids for £219. Owners can opt to add a fixed-price MOT to any service plan for £40. Last year’s launch of Hyundai Sense Service Plans added new features to the company’s existing fixed-price service offers, most notably giving new vehicle owners the option to pay in advance or spread the cost of servicing with bite-size monthly payments. Available over two, three or five years and starting from £249, the plans cover all scheduled servicing for cars in warranty. What’s more, if an owner upgrades their Hyundai before the plan ends, they can transfer it to their new vehicle. Unlike other conventional plans, a Hyundai Sense Service Plan can be purchased up until the day of a vehicle’s first service, allowing customers the choice of spreading the cost of their vehicles servicing, even if their decision isn’t made until the day their vehicle is serviced.
  14. The IONIQ has been awarded Best Small Hatch at the UK Car of the Year Awards 2017, beating competition from the Renault Megane and MINI Clubman. The IONIQ received praise from all the COTY judges for its green powertrains, combined with a chassis that delivers a good driving experience and its stylish body design. UK COTY judges said: “IONIQ scores for its choice of three good eco drivetrains and is also decent to drive, with a good ride and refinement.” Paul Hudson “Hyundai has produced a solid model to take on the competitive segment.” Olivia Gauch “It’s an intelligent proposition for its flexible electric technology – and the design is edgy enough to reflect this.” Nargess Banks “Technologically pioneering in terms of the range of powertrains, and the car is stylish and without the compromises offered by other alternative-fuelled vehicles.” Paul Barker “Out-Priuses the Prius with a three-car range in a single swoop. A very impressive first effort.” Nat Barnes “The fact it offers three greener powertrains is a masterstroke. Why has nobody done this before? A great reputation for reliability, decent real-world economy from the petrol engine and looks that are sufficient to make a statement without looking polarising.” Keith Jones “With hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electric options, the IONIQ takes on the Toyota Prius (hybrid & plug-in) and Nissan Leaf (EV only) and arguably offers greater attributes than both – from lower prices to better driving and visual appeal.” Guy Bird Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK said “IONIQ has only been available since October yet has already received praise for its eco credentials and also its more mainstream capabilities. The award for Best Small Hatch from the UK COTY judges once again proves that Hyundai is offering exactly what the market wants – eco-friendly vehicles that drive well and look good that are also cost effective to run.” Ioniq – along with 11 other winning cars – will now go forward to a final category to decide the overall UK Car of the Year 2017. The winner will be announced on 24th February 2017.
