'Low-selling' Lantra gains increased spec

HYUNDAI has added extra specification to a mildly-facelifted Lantra but pegged or reduced list prices. The move comes after the company admitted Lantra sales had been 'disappointing' since it was launched in the UK three years ago.

Speaking at the Geneva Show, managing director David Walker said every other car in the Hyundai range had beaten the Lantra's 6,000 sales. New versions join the Lantra range at both 1.6- and 2.0-litre engine levels and all models get a new grille - apparently in response to customer demand for more 'character'.

At 1.6 level, the LSi is replaced by the Siena, which carries the same £10,599 price, but now has alloy wheels, an electric sunroof and a boot spoiler as standard. The 1.6 GLSi saloon is dropped, but both LSi and GLSi versions of the estate continue at £11,599 and £12,599 respectively.
