Hyundai goes fully online shopping in South Africa
Hyundai has entered the realm of complete online shopping with Click to Buy in South Africa – giving you the comfort of selecting and buying your car online from the comfort of your couch, up to the point of having your new vehicle delivered in your driveway.
With its innovative new service in the local car market, Hyundai Automotive South Africa allows you to seamlessly buy a new car online. Linking to Hyundai’s web site with your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone, you can explore the Hyundai range, choose your model and derivative in its favourite colour, get a 360-degree view of the car’s interior and exterior, and compare it to other models in the range.
Throughout the process, the buyer can communicate with a representative of Hyundai Automotive SA on Whatsapp or by ways of a live chat, or one can get Hyundai to call you back. Hyundai’s efficient concierge service can help you all the way, and you will also be alerted about any special offers or maintenance and service plans.
All detail about the car of your choice is right there, at a click of a virtual button – from convenience features to engine specifications, performance figures, safety characteristics and more.
The finance application, if needed, can also be done online. And when the buyer is interrupted or have to attend to something else, all the information is saved up to that point in the process and you can continue later right where you left off.
“Hyundai prides itself with several industry-leading offerings in South Africa, such as our 7-year/200 000 km warranty. Now we have added Cl!ck to Buy, which makes the acquisition of a new Hyundai most convenient and satisfying,” says Oscar Makola, marketing director of Hyundai Automotive South Africa.
“We will still have the personal touch and interaction when needed, for instance when your car gets serviced or anything needs to be attended to, at our nationwide network of dealerships. However, we believe the ease and convenience of this new, fully online buying process will enhance many of our customers’ journey with Hyundai.”
Makola says the time was more than ripe to introduce Cl!ck to Buy, considering the proliferation and acceptance of such online shopping offerings by the public, especially against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has changed the way we do many things.
According to Makola the attraction of the Cl!ck to Buy process also lies in the responsiveness and the fact that customers can choose their mode of communication, the flexibility to pause a buying session and continuing it later from wherever it is convenient, and the ability of the customers to determine the speed of the transaction.
