Hyundai changes

HYUNDAI has cut prices of Elantra models by at least £1,000 in a bid to boost slow sales.

The entry-level 1.6 GSI has fallen from £12,195 to £10,995 on-the-road, while a new 1.6 CDX model has been introduced at £12,495. The 2.0 CRTD (formerly known as the TD GSI) drops from £13,195 to £11,845, while the CDX version falls from £14,995 to £13,345. The 2.0 CDX has been cut from £13,995 to £12,995.

Top Santa Fe SUV models have also been given a standard equipment boost with heated mirrors, cruise control and climate control as standard on the V6 CDX, while the Coupe 2.0 litre has been upgraded with variable valve timing, giving a power boost from 136bhp to 141bhp.

The new engine also brings an improvement in fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, with 35.3mpg on the combined cycle instead of 33.6mpg, and 193g/km instead of 202g/km – an improvement of two BIK tax bands.

Meanwhile the Trajet large MPV has gained dual-zone air conditioning, heated door mirrors and side airbags as standard on entry-level models for no extra charge and the Sonata has been given the Trafficmaster Smartnav navigation and live traffic information system as standard.
