News that will be music to your ears … Hyundai has responded to customer and press feedback and introduced an entirely new audio offering across its complete range of cars.

Being progressively introduced across the range from June onwards, for the first time the range will feature fully Hyundai-branded stereo radio/CD units with RDS. Since the start of 2003, all Hyundai vehicles have a CD player featured as standard.

The units have been produced in association with Siemens/VDO, and all Hyundai cars at The Sunday Times Motor Show Live will feature them for the first time.

The unit has been designed for simplicity and ease of use, with clear designations and an illumination that blends in with other colours on the dashboard. For security, part of the front of the audio unit can be removed. The unit also has a flashing LED security deterrent, visible when the front panel is taken out.

A six CD autochanger is available across the range as an accessory, although it is already standard on the Sonata 2.7 V6.

Liz Vasey, Product Planning and Communications Manager, said: "We have been listening to our customers and the media, and have responded by introducing this much improved audio offering. I am sure this will be music to their ears, quite literally!"
