Hyundai goes on sale in Harrods

The popular Hyundai ix35 is on display in the shop window of Harrods department store in central London, giving customers with a taste for stylish goods a chance to examine the car close up.

Hyundai staff members are available to answer questions about the white ix35, a premium model, from customers at the Brompton Road shop in Knightsbridge. Harrods is situated on a 4.5-acre site and has more than 330 departments across 1 million square feet.

The vehicle will be on display in the store for a week.

Hyundai has sold 2,300 of the ix35 crossover models since it went on sale in March, making it the fastest selling car in the company's history.

The company's managing director Tony Whitehorn said: "We are very proud to have our newest model on display in such an iconic location. Like everything in Harrods, the ix35 has been designed to be stylish, great value and of the highest quality."
