Demand for the Hyundai ix35 has been unprecedented not only across Europe, but also worldwide, placing supply under intense pressure and resulting in long waiting lists for the 2.0-litre diesel derivative in particular.
The Hyundai ix35 1.7-litre diesel model is more freely available so Hyundai has taken action to ensure that its 200 longest waiting customers receive an interim solution. The offer will enable customers to own a new 1.7-litre diesel manual Hyundai ix35 immediately, and run it until their original Hyundai ix35 2.0-litre diesel is ready. Customers can then move to the new 2.0-litre car - all for the price of their original order. Hyundai sees this as a good way to keep its customers mobile in the same vehicle that they ordered, although the engine is slightly smaller, and the 1.7 is two wheel drive, this still offers a great opportunity to drive the new Hyundai ix35 now.How The Hyundai ix35 Offer Works
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai UK's managing director commented: "The demand for ix35 and long waiting list demonstrates the popularity of the vehicle, but we are very aware of the inconvenience that these delays are causing our customers. We are doing all we can to improve the situation and constantly looking at ways to alleviate the wait. Customer satisfaction is our priority and we hope that this offer of an alternative ix35 will be attractive for our longest waiting customers".
Hyundai is currently looking at the feasibility of rolling out this offer to other customers.
