100,000 expected to attend the show
Hyundai is to become the official partner of ‘The Motorhome and Caravan Show’ which takes place from the 15th to the 20th October; it is the biggest show of its type in the UK with expected attendance of around 100,000 people. The show takes place at the Birmingham NEC and exhibits all of the latest technology and products from the camping, caravanning and touring market.
On show will be three Hyundai models the Santa Fe, the ix35 and the i40, all these models will demonstrate their abilities through the shows innovative ‘Towing Experience’ feature. As part of this, attendees can have a fifteen minute towing lesson in one of Hyundai’s vehicles, with expert towers from the Camping and Caravan club on-hand to offer advice. Hyundai has a history of producing highly capable towcars, with the i30 winning ‘Best Value Hatchback’ in the 2012 Practical Caravan, The Camping & Caravanning Club & What Car? Towcar Awards. More recently, the Hyundai Santa Fe picked up the prize for ‘Best Large SUV’ in the Auto Express Awards. With a four-wheel drive version available, 194 bhp and up to 322 lb/ft of torque, along with a braked towing capacity of 2,500kg, the Santa Fe is the ideal vehicle for touring. Hyundai has expanded its popular i40 model line-up following the addition of a new range topping trim the ‘Premium SE’ which will be available on both the i40 Tourer and the Saloon. The addition of the Premium SE trim to the line-up means customers now get even more comfort, luxury, convenience and safety features as standard, most of which are on-cost options with other rival mainstream D-segment cars.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO of Hyundai UK, said “being the official partner of The Motorhome and Caravan Show offers motorists a unique opportunity to test the considerable towing abilities of Hyundai’s cars, and enables them to gain some expert guidance on towing best practice. The Towing Experience feature also allows more people to experience Hyundai’s cars up-close and see for themselves the high levels of quality and standard equipment. Our 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty package also benefits those owners planning to take their car on holiday. With five years’ warranty, vehicle health checks and roadside assistance, it is the ultimate way of keeping your vehicle in the best shape for towing.”
