Dealer auction boost for Hyundai

Although August seems to be a quiet month for used car sales, Hyundai achieved a 100% success rate at a recent online dealer auction.

Dealers bought all 39 vehicles for an average 105% of their predicted value. The new ix35 crossover model emerged as the star performer, with five cars sold achieving 113% of their predicted values.

Gary Spurdens, national remarketing manager at Hyundai Motor UK, said: "August is not historically a strong month for used car sales, as dealers clear their forecourts for the part exchanges they expect to generate from September new car activity.

"The results from the online auction reinforce the strong demand our dealers are experiencing for used Hyundai cars."
