Hyundai Australia Hits Back With Best Ever January Result

MyDrive | Hyundai Motor Company Australia has recorded its best-ever January sales result, finishing the month with 6,816 units sold and a market share of 8%.

After a record sales year in 2012, the January result is a robust start to what is looking to be another strong year for the company and the Australian car market in general.

In a fiscal environment currently challenged by the strength of the Korean Won and a weakened Japanese Yen, Hyundai managed to increase the local January sales total by +4.7% year-on-year.
