HIGH WYCOMBE, England – Buying a new Hyundai in the UK will soon take just a few mouse clicks through the automaker’s new website.

Hyundai ‘Click To Buy’ will launch on January 6 2017 and, the automaker says, will make buying a new car simple and transparent – “a user-friendly, no-haggle, shopping experience.

Every car will have a fixed price, however, so haggling with the salesman will, Hyundai says, “be a thing of the past”. And the website will enable the buyer to get a trade-in quote, configure their purchase, arrange finance and pay a deposit through a laptop, smartphone, tablet or home computer.

The purchase will be completed online and an appointment made for the buyers to take in their trade-in, sign any legal documents and drive off in their new vehicle – even in the evening or over a weekend.

Delivery can also be made to the buyer’s home.

Hyundai UK’s Tony Whitehorn told The Corner through a media release: “It’s no understatement to say we are a pioneer in online vehicle sales – creating Click to Buy was the next step.

“We’ve spent many years listening to customers and Click To Buy is the result; it makes a vehicle purchase easier, simpler and clearer and does away with haggling.

“This is just the start of Hyundai offering more customer service… we’ll be adding more functionality to Click To Buy.”

  • We’ve asked Hyundai for comment on the likelihood of the buy-online program appearing in South Africa.
