Simply download the app, follow instructions and point at the all-new i40 Tourer advert to trigger video content where consumers can explore the features of the car, order a brochure or book a test drive.
The application features state-of-the art image recognition technology from Aurasma which showcases the future of how we use our mobile devices by bringing the physical and virtual worlds together for the first time. It is available for download for Apple iPhone 4 and Android 2.2 and above.
Andrew Cullis, Marketing Director, Hyundai Motor UK explains: “The i40 Tourer has already created a stir within the market place by providing a stylish, technologically advanced and value for money new alternative in the medium family estate car sector – dominated by more established manufacturers. We have created a campaign that really showcases our brand philosophy of ‘New Thinking. New Possibilities’. Our fully integrated campaign ensures that every consumer touch point conveys the right message to the right people. And we’ve innovated by using cutting edge mobile technology to bring the print and poster campaign to life.”
