Latest News: Motorvogue Norwich opens in early 2020 with a brand new multi-brand site which will include Hyundai, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Fiat, Abarth and Fiat Professional. We are pleased to announce our expansion with work beginning on the new showroom at Cromer Road Norwich. This will be the first time that Motorvogue has had an operation in Norwich and will make this one of the largest Motor Groups in the area.  First to open will be a 7 car Hyundai showroom, following the closure of the previous Hyundai dealership in Norwich which shut the doors at the end of November. Existing Hyundai owners, and those looking to experience the brand will once again be able to do so in Norwich and can utilise this new facility for servicing, maintenance and the purchase of new and used cars. Motorvogue are experienced in the Hyundai brand as we already have a Hyundai showroom at our Bedford location. The opening of a Fiat and Abarth showroom will quickly follow, and shortly after, another new showroom for Jeep and Alfa Romeo to complete the initial re-development of the Cromer Road location. Once again, we already have existing locations offering these brands with Kings Lynn, Bedford and Northampton providing a long standing relationship with the FCA Group.  This is an exciting time for Motorvogue as development of the site is happening at a remarkable pace. The location on Cromer Road has been vacant for many years, previously a Volvo dealership which closed over 6 years ago, and has seen the derelict structure fall into an awful condition however with a large investment, Motorvogue are changing the future of this site and we are sure that our renovation of the exterior and interior will enhance the view for the local people and those visiting Norwich using one of the main routes into the city along Cromer Road and Reepham Road. Close to the new NDR road around Norwich, and the city centre, access will be ideal for those looking to purchase a new or used vehicle or visiting for servicing and maintenance. As with all of our locations, this new multi-brand site will offer customers a variety of options when buying a new vehicle, so they can test drive and experience a number of cars from various brands to find their perfect car, all in one location, an objective which led to this being the ideal choice for our next showroom development due to the amount of space on offer. We hope to have the initial phase open at the end of January and whilst members of our existing team will be moving to the new site, we also require a number of new staff members and we are recruiting.

HYUNDAI i10 WINS BEST CITY CAR AT CARGURUS BEST USED CAR AWARDS

Hyundai’s i10 wins the ‘Best City Car’ category in brand new CarGurus UK Best Used Car Awards. CarGurus, a leading online automotive marketplace, has launched the ‘UK Best Used Car Awards’ to recognise the best buys in the used car market across 13 categories. An expert judging panel made up of some of the UK’s most well-respected motoring journalists and road testers selected the winners. In addition to drawing on their extensive experience, the judges used unique CarGurus data insights around areas including stock availability and projected depreciation to pick 2019’s best used cars. Chris Knapman, CarGurus UK Editor, said: “There were several strong contenders in the city car class, but it was the i10 that stood out to our judges as the best buy. That many used i10s are likely to have the balance of the original five-year manufacturer warranty certainly played a part, but there is much more besides to recommend it. Notably, it’s one of the most practical small cars you can buy, as well as being well equipped, and available with one of the better automatic gearboxes in the city car class. As the icing on the cake, CarGurus data shows that the i10 has what are among the best residual values in the class.” The multi-award winning Hyundai i10 is available with a range of convenience and safety equipment such as touchscreen navigation, parking sensors and keyless entry. Ashley Andrew, Hyundai Motor UK’s Managing Director, said: “Our best-selling i10 continues to win awards year after year and we’re delighted that it is still being recognised as a key player in the city car segment. The i10 offers class-leading levels of space, modern design and comprehensive safety and driving assistance technologies. It’s a compelling used car proposition providing excellent value-for-money being so well-equipped and with such strong residual values.” The i10 benefits from Hyundai’s comprehensive owner-transferrable five-year unlimited mileage warranty, with prices starting from £9,325 (on-the-road from new). View our latest offers here

The Tucson N Line features exterior elements inspired by Hyundai’s N range of high-performance models, with bespoke front and rear bumpers, dark mesh-pattern grille with a dark chrome surround. The 19” alloy wheels, door mirror housings and rear spoiler are all finished in glossy black, to further emphasize the car’s sporting attitude. Black-bezel headlamps, unique LED daytime running lights and darkened window frames in combination with body-coloured door handles also create a more dynamic look for the Tucson N Line Interior changes for Tucson N Line include N-branded leather-suede sport seats with red accent stitching, which is also carried over to the N branded leather steering wheel. Alloy pedals and the leather-wrapped, red-accented N gear shift lever are also part of the Tucson N Line’s sporting enhancements. As well as external and interior styling changes, Tucson N Line T-GDi models feature dynamic modifications over regular Tucson models, with changes to the motor driven power steering software giving a more direct, linear feel at the wheel and further adjustment to suspension settings providing a 5% greater rigidity in the rear setup and an 8% increase at the front.  Prices will start from £25,995 for the Tucson N Line N Line 1.6 T-GDi 177ps 2WD manual, which in addition to the N Line specific equipment, also offers heated and height adjustable front seats, with an electrically adjustable drivers lumbar support, keyless entry with start/stop button, black cloth headlining, climate control, automatic dimming rear view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, electric parking brake and privacy glass also feature as standard specification. As with all Tucson models, the Tucson N Line offers a high level of standard safety equipment, with an Active Bonnet System, Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Downhill Brake Control, Hill Start Assist Control, Trailer Stability Assist, Speed Limit Information Function and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System with Individual Tyre Pressure Display featuring on all models.

The Tucson N Line also sees the introduction of the all-new 1.6 CRDi 48 Volt Hybrid, which will be available from the SE Nav trim level and replaces the conventional 1.6 diesel powertrain option. The technology designed for electrification comprises a 0.44 kW/h 48-volt lithium-ion battery, a Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG), a LDC converter (Low Voltage DC/DC) and an inverter. Under acceleration, the MHSG supports the engine with up to 12 kW of power, reducing fuel consumption and emissions, with the system switching automatically between mechanical use of the engine and energy recuperation. The MHSG assists the combustion engine by discharging the battery to reduce engine load with light acceleration, or to provide additional torque to the engine under strong acceleration. During in-gear deceleration and braking, energy is recuperated to recharge the battery. Tucson N Line is available in a choice of 7 colours; solid finish choices of Polar White or Engine Red, or the metallic and pearl finishes of Olivine Grey, Micron Grey, Phantom Black and Fiery red.

The N Line trim has been well received by customers since its introduction last year on i30 and combining this with the always popular Tucson range gives us the confidence that this won’t be a model that customers take long to decide upon” All Tucson N Line models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, Roadside Assistance package, 5 Year Annual Health Check, and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.

HYUNDAI MOTOR CELEBRATES LAUNCH OF NEW TUCSON N LINE WITH UNIQUE ART PROJECT

Hyundai Motor is offering customers a growing range of attractive N choices. With the launch of the New Tucson N Line, they’ll be able to drive the brand’s first SUV with the sporty N look and feel. To mark the occasion, Hyundai enlisted German artist Andreas Preis to create the ‘Drive A Statement’ Project Tucson, a unique illustration on a New Tucson N Line.  The New Tucson N Line combines the popular design, safety and comfort of Tucson with the motorsport-inspired dynamic styling and attitude of N Line. With its sportier, aggressive design elements, the model is aimed at people who want to “drive a statement” that is sophisticated, yet bold. For this special occasion, Hyundai chose to work with Andreas Preis as he is renowned for his multi-faceted works of art. He specialises in illustration, murals and live paintings and likes to draw and paint portraits of abstract shapes and ornaments through a range of different mediums including paper, canvas, walls and wood. Hyundai asked Preis to create a truly eye-catching design that turns the New Tucson N Line into a real statement, while emphasising the car’s new features. It is inspired by Hyundai N’s heritage, and takes many cues from motorsport, with references to corners, chicanes, curbs and chequered flags, as well as the livery of Hyundai’s i20 Coupe WRC and i30 N TCR models. The visual elements and lines also create a dynamic, fast look, especially along the sides of the car.  The base colour of the illustration is Engine Red, and the artist has utilised the N Line colour palette of black, white, red and light blue. Preis’ design highlights key aspects of the model, such as its more aggressive and sporty front, which includes a new grille design, refined daytime running lights and new black-bezel headlamps. It also draws attention to the car’s elegant glossy black accents on the side mirrors and rear spoiler, as well as the dark alloy wheels and N Line badge. After designing the illustration, Preis transferred the work onto the car by hand with great attention to detail, with the whole production taking 72 hours of painting.  “I was very excited to be asked by Hyundai to create an illustration on a New Tucson N Line. It is not every day you get to create an art work where a complete car is the canvas. With this project, I was able to turn the car into a statement of my own,” says Andreas Preis, artist and creator of the ‘Drive A Statement’ Project Tucson.  “With the New Tucson N Line, we are appealing to a new customer base compared to the regular version. We therefore wanted Andreas Preis to create the ‘Drive A Statement’ Project Tucson to demonstrate that this is a special new model for Hyundai. I believe he has achieved this, and it fits perfectly with our claim that you are driving a statement. We will soon be displaying this unique car at events around Europe,” says Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product Hyundai Motor Europe.  New Tucson N Line: a family SUV with Hyundai N sportiness The Tucson N Line is the first Hyundai SUV with the sporty N Line look and feel. Available in three powertrain variants, the model provides customers with the option to choose a family-friendly vehicle that suits their daily driving needs.  The new trim features exterior and interior elements inspired by N, Hyundai’s high-performance range. The dynamic design features are complemented on the two petrol models by refined chassis and suspension settings to customers can experience a more sporty drive feel.  In the interior, consumers can enjoy N-branded leather sport seats and a sport steering wheel. Other enhancements include alloy pedals and the leather-wrapped, red-accented N gear shift lever.
