Hyundai Car Finance: Hyundai Capital UK (Hyundai Finance) | www.hyundaifinance.co.uk
Hyundai’s formation in South Korea occurred in 1967. The founder was Chung Ju-yung who helped to guide this automotive brand on the pathway to become the market leader in their home country. The Hyundai Motor Group was created more recently when they took on their local competitor Kia. This had been a successful brand, but they were rocked during the Asian financial crisis and headed into bankruptcy. This larger company took on a 51% stake, although this share has dropped to a little over 30% today (they are still the largest shareholder). The common trend seen in Asian motoring came in late 2015 when they crafted a luxury rebadged design in the Genesis.
Over 2015 they sold 4,964,837 units whilst their fellow brand Kia also had a good year notching up 2,916,118 sales. With almost 8 million registrations between them, this combo marks the Group as the 5th largest on the worldwide stage. To run through the new cars showcased at www.hyundai.co.uk, we begin with the I10 (from just £7995). This follows with I20 (£9995), I30 (£12,995), I20 Coupe (£13,025), Ix20 (£14,145), I20 Active (£15,225), I30 Tourer (£15,495), Tucson (£18,995), I40 Saloon (£19,695) and the I40 Tourer surpasses the £20k mark at £20,945. The other models include I800 (£24,845), Santa Fe (£31,850) and finally the Genesis is also featured on the site that jumps up to £50,705.
The British public have taken the most to their very cheapest offering in the I10. This stylish city car has a similar look of the Toyota Yaris. Hyundai finance (plus that of Kia) is provided by Hyundai Capital UK. This is a joint partnership with Santander Consumer that launched in 2012. Capital had started out in their home country in 1993.
