Hyundai and the UK Market
Tony Whitehorn, Managing Director of Hyundai Motor UK Ltd, said: “The Arnejs heralds the beginning of what will be a very exciting 12 months for Hyundai. We are confident that the modern European styling seen here will provoke a positive response in the UK market.”
Hyundai’s new C-segment car will share the same quality and performance that has seen Hyundai become the world’s sixth largest manufacturer. The C-segment is hugely important for manufacturers, representing the most popular cars among UK buyers.
For this reason, Hyundai’s new C-segment car is an important step towards increasing its market share in Europe, in a segment that demands both quality and affordability.
