Who are Hyundai?
South Korea’s leading car manufacturers began life as a small repair shop back in 1947. Twenty years later, the Hyundai Motor Company was established. Their very first car, the Pony, went into production in 1974.
Today’s vehicles include the stylish and practical ‘i’ range, ranging from the small city hatchbacks, the i10 and i20, to the larger i30 Tourer and sleek i40 Saloon.
The newly revived SUV Hyundai Tucson offers a refined drive and reasonable running costs, making it a worthy rival for the Nissan Qashqai and Mazda CX-5.
