Hyundai UK introduces Atlantic brand
The Korean car maker is going to bring to the UK market its new Hyundai Atlantic umbrella brand, which will cover a set of three special edition models of Accent, Getz, and Coupe.
Available at the same price as the outgoing models, these cars will be available with a load of equipment previously only available at an additional cost.
The new Hyundai Accent Atlantic replaces both older Accent and Elantra models in Hyundai UK’s model range. The three-door hatchback features a 1.4-liter petrol engine, an air-conditioning system, and alloy wheels. Aerodynamic kit also includes a high-mounted rear spoiler with stop light.
Standard equipment includes electric front windows, driver and passenger airbags, remote central locking, 60/40 split folding rear seat, front fog lights, stereo RDS/CD player, a trip computer and so on.
The new Hyundai Accent Atlantic will cost £8,995 on the road.
The Hyundai Coupe Atlantic will be based on the current Coupe 2.0 SE model equipped with a manual transmission. The car, which will soon be replaced with second-generation Tiburon model, will be offered in a choice of colors, including the Dark Navy Blue, Samba Red and Smart Silver paint job.
The Atlantic-branded models will also feature a standard set of color-coded floor mats, 6-disc CD changer, climate control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and automatic lights-on control.
The Hyundai Coupe Atlantic will set you back at £17,170 on the road, but that’s OK for a light flavor of exclusivity: Hyundai UK plans to sell no more than 500 of these tamed beasts.
Oh, and then there is Hyundai Getz Atlantic. The baby Hyundai features a set of alloy wheels, air-conditioning, body-coloured door mirrors and handles, electric heated door mirrors, front fog lights, remote central locking, side airbags and an alarm.
The tiny car, which based on the five-door 1.1 Getz CDX, also sports a rear roof spoiler with brake light, color-coded carpet mats and carbon grain interior trim and all for just £7,990 on the road.
