Hyundai Makes a Safety Mark on Perth Motor Show

April 22nd, 2008


Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s (HMCA) presence at this year’s Perth Motor Show coincides with an offer of free Electronic Stability Protection (ESP) stability control on Elantra, Tuscon City and Getz.

“Our vision is to see ESP mandated across all new vehicles in Australia. Our research shows that ESP Stability Control can reduce the risk of single car accidents by as much as 68%,” said Hyundai’s director of sales and marketing Kevin McCann. “We invite WA residents to come down to the Hyundai stand to discuss and ask questions about the importance of ESP technology.”

Also being showcased on the Hyundai stand this year will be the company’s recently released Hyundai iLoad (van and crew van) and Hyundai iMax. The iLoad and iMax signal HMCA’s first foray into the light commercial vehicle class. While the iLoad has been designed with the Australian tradesmen in mind, the iMax, an executive shuttle, is proving popular with Australia’s music industry.

Due to its good use of space and fuel efficiency the iMax CRDi will be used by up and coming Australian bands Amy Meredith and Van Shee in the Boost Mobile’s Rock the Schools tour, visiting Perth later in the year.

Hyundai’s industry leading diesel technology will also be on show in the Sonata CRDi and the Cars Guide Car of the Year and Green Car of the Year, the i30 CRDi.
