Hyundai entered the Australian market in 1986 with just one model – the first-generation Excel – and wouldn’t become the official Hyundai Motor Company Australia subsidiary until 2003.

Company milestones can be traced all the way from its more humble beginnings when, at one point, the Excel was Australia’s best-selling car. More recently, Hyundai entered the high-performance market with its 2017 i30 N and, before that, it produced one of the world’s first production hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles with the 2013 ix35 Fuel Cell.

From an initial modest range of price-driven vehicles, the contemporary Hyundai couldn’t look more different with a vast range of models covering passenger, SUV, commercial, electric, and sports segments. Quality and features frequently threaten to encroach on some traditional premium players.

Hyundai is also one of only a handful of manufacturers that develop and tune the suspension of almost all its models specifically for Australia’s unique roads and demands. Its most popular model is the i30 small hatchback.
