Hyundai i30 5-Door: Built To Travel The Speed Of Life

Hyundai i30 5-Door: New Online Video

Hyundai claims that its i30 5-Door family car is “built to travel at the speed of life”. The manufacturer is emphasising this message courtesy of a light hearted, online, video.

It shows a potential customer – a blonde lady in her thirties – being shown the car by a salesman at a dealership. She claims to need it for “the family” but inner dialogue reveals her true intentions. The customer would rather use it to “escape” the family than for family escapes. She suspects that the salesman recognises this fact. “Busted”, she thinks.

The salesman tries to emphasis the car's strengths such as its cargo capacity but is interrupted by her jokes, odd behaviour and misunderstandings. “You can't put a dolphin in a suitcase”, she exclaims - and: “would it be wrong to ask to stroke the dashboard”?
