Hyundai is launching a new “Click to Buy” online service – letting buyers trade-in their car, arrange finance and order a new vehicle, all from the comfort of their sofa.
Going live in January, the new website will feature ‘competitive fixed pricing’, says the company, meaning buyers won’t need to negotiate on a new car.

Although the initial buying process will take place online, most buyers will still visit a dealer to drop off their part-exchange, sign any finance papers and collect their new car.
Selected dealers will also be able to offer evening and weekend collections to help those short on time – while some will be able to deliver your new car to your doorstep.
The car manufacturer says that, for those buying outright without any finance involved, the process of buying a new Hyundai online can take less than five minutes.
Click to Buy follows Hyundai’s Rockar stores at Bluewater and Westfield shopping centres in London.
President and CEO of Hyundai UK, Tony Whitehorn, said: “It’s no understatement to say that we’ve been pioneering in the field of online car sales, thanks to our successful experience with our digital stores. Now it gives me great pleasure to launch Hyundai’s own website, Click To Buy.
“We’ve spent many years listening to customers and Click To Buy is the result: it’s a site that makes the process of buying a new car easier, simpler and clearer than ever, doing away with haggling through fixed pricing – and offering the ability to buy a car online in just five minutes flat. This is just the start of Hyundai offering even greater customer service. Over the coming months we’ll be adding even more functionality to Click To Buy – watch this space.”
