Luxury car technology to be rolled out across Hyundai range by end of 2020

Technology typically found on luxury cars will be available on all Hyundai models by the end of 2020, the manufacturer has announced.

The news has been welcomed by Swindon dealership Pebley Beach, which says that Bluelink connectivity between the car and the manufacturer is great news for customer safety and convenience.

Hyundai’s state-of-the-art Bluelink combines intelligent automotive and IT technologies in order to provide greater comfort, safety and convenience to drivers of the brand’s vehicles.

Bluelink connects drivers to their cars through their smartphones via the Bluelink app. 

The app’s features allow customers to check the status of their vehicle, as well as offering a control mode function to make it easy for them to keep track of their car and send remote commands anytime, from anywhere.

Thanks to Bluelink, drivers can stay in control of their car even when they are not inside the vehicle. 

The app allows users to lock and unlock car doors from the comfort of their own living room, or on their way to the car park as they finish work. 

They will also receive a push notification on their smartphone if they forget to lock the car. 

Using the Find My Car function, customers can also remotely locate their car as the vehicle’s location is displayed on the map within the smartphone app – the feature also incorporates activation of horn and lights so customers can easily see their car even in a crowded area – and making vehicles less attractive to thieves.

Meanwhile, the in-vehicle diagnostic system check feature provides important information to the driver. 

And in the case of a more serious road incident resulting in the airbag sensors being triggered the eCall feature automatically contacts emergency services.

Pebley Beach managing director Dominic Threlfall said: "Drivers of luxury cars are already used to being able to remotely defrost their car on a cold winter morning while they eat their breakfast, or activating the air conditioning before they leave the office in the afternoon. 

"Now the same technology is available to drivers of Hyundai models including the Kona hybrid and EV and the Ioniq family. 

"And as the product lineup is refreshed throughout 2020, Bluelink will be available to customers of all models who choose the new optional onboard Audio Video Navigation system that comes with 10.25-inch touchscreen.

"It's just another example of Hyundai creating a better driving experience for its customers."

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
