Used Hyundai cars
Hyundai is a relatively new player in the country’s automotive market compared to established Japanese brands such as Toyota, Mitsubishi and Honda. Despite this, the Korean car brand has proven to be quite the competitor and is currently the country’s fourth largest car company in terms of sales performance.
It currently has a 7 percent share of the local automotive market despite being in the Philippines for just 13 years and has dethroned names like Ford and Isuzu. The company’s success can be attributed to its most popular van model the Hyundai Starex, whose strong sales have boosted the company to where it is today.
Expanding into different divisions
For the past decade, Hyundai has worked its way up to become a respectable auto player in Asia and even North America. The company has broken into different segments such as the sports utility vehicles (SUVs) class with the Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Tucson. It has also begun marketing fuel efficient subcompact cars such as the Hyundai Getz and Hyundai i10.
Integration of new technologies
Newer models of the subcompact Hyundai Accent have engines equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) that enhances the car’s driving performance.
Hyundai has also started upsizing and downsizing their car models’ engines to adapt to the everchanging needs of its Asian customers. It has also upscaled some features with only a slight price adjustment. The entry level Accent, whose price is now around P650,000, has a similar price to the Nissan Sentra.
Where to find second hand Hyundai models
Metro Manila is teeming with car dealers that offer second hand Hyundai units at justifiable prices. These dealers often target a wide variety of customers such as private car owners and transportation companies. The Starex is the preferred non-metered taxi model in the nation.
Hyundai’s dealerships and influence also extend to provinces such as Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal and the Central Luzon Region. One of the reasons why car buyers from these regions buy Hyundai models is because they offer a great balance between affordability and decent features and amenities.
