So Hyundai has decided it wants to put a smile back on its customers’ faces, not only by freezing the VAT increase like other retailers have done, but by actually paying the 20% VAT on selected i10, i20 and i30 Comfort models as part of the offers' range for 2011. The offer will only available on certain models and will be valid until the end of March and applies to the UK mainland.
Under the VAT cut, Hyundai’s smallest model, the i10, now costs just £7,109 (€8,412) for the Comfort 1.2-liter 5-door model, a saving of £1,410 (€1,668). The i20 city car will set you back £8,809 (€10,422) for the Comfort 1.2-liter 3-door model, a saving of £1,750 (€2,070), while a brand new i30 mid-sized family hatchback in Comfort trim with a 1.4-liter and 5-door configuration will cost £11,605 (€13,727), a saving of £2,285 (€2,702).
“Hyundai begins 2011 by offering fantastic deals on a great range of products that are backed by our class leading five year unlimited mileage warranty. Making selected models VAT free as well as offering competitive PCP plans should make buying a new car more affordable,” explained Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK’s managing director.
