Like 'em big? The Hyundai East London showroom is the manufacturer's largest in the UK
Like 'em big? The Hyundai East London showroom is the manufacturer's largest in the UK – and it is now officially open. As such, its 595m2 floor can accommodate seventeen vehicles. Probably more, if they were crushed first. The showroom - which is in Romford Essex on the site of a former truck workshop – had its ribbon cut by Bill Cook, the Director of Essex Motor Company. All witnessed, of course, by Hyundai European President Tak Uk Im.Mr Cook revealed: “We are honoured to have President Im here to unveil our flagship dealership. The site has been completely transformed into what is an attractive and professional facility where customers can benefit from top-class new and used Hyundai vehicle sales backed-up by a dedicated team of service and maintenance technicians.” Hyundai produce a range of vehicles to fill its showroom. So, if you like 'em big, try the i40 Estate. This has a cavernous 1,719-litre cargo capacity, high equipment specification, and composed handling. Not bad from only £18,650. The Veloster earns plaudits too. This coupé is easy to drive, looks stylish, and could be extracted from the East London showroom from £18,000. This fashion statement also has one door on its driver's side and two on the passenger's, so it feels special. Hyundai also fills its floorspace with the i10 city car from £8,345, the i20 supermini from £9,995, and the i30 from £14,500. This small family car is a worthy alternative to rivals such as the Ford Focus. Plus, every Hyundai is backed by a five year warranty. I wonder how long the guarantee is on that big showroom?
