Hyundai is a Korean automotive manufacturer that is known for being the first brand to offer a 10-year warranty on their cars in some markets. They are the most prominent carmaker in Korea, and among the top five largest automotive companies in the world. Some famous Hyundai cars sold in Malaysia include the Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Hyundai Ioniq.
Hyundai cars are mainly made in Korea and exported to other countries worldwide. In Malaysia, Hyundai Malaysia opened its own facility to assemble Completely Knocked Down (CKD) Hyundai cars in Kulim, Kedah.
According to Consumer Report, Hyundai was ranked the sixth most reliable brand for the year 2021, while Hyundai Kona was ranked the seventh most reliable car. Meanwhile, the Hyundai i10 ranked sixth place on the top 100 most reliable cars list, according to a Reliability Index survey.
Hyundai vehicles come with a five-year or 60,000km warranty in Malaysia. Maintenance costs incurred after the warranty period range between RM200* and roughly RM1,200*.
*Estimates based on service repairs without major engine or gearbox overhauls.
The road tax for a Hyundai depends on the engine displacement in cubic centimeters (cc). The road tax for a Hyundai Ioniq 1.6 (1580cc) is RM90, while the fee for a Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2 (2199cc) costs around RM579.
Hyundai vehicles depreciate between 29 and 36 percent on average in the first three years after purchase. However, the five-year depreciation rate is predicted to be about 46 to 53 percent of their original price.
The insurance rate is calculated based on the market price of your car, coverage type, location, engine capacity, and your No Claims Discount (NCD). For example, a used Hyundai Elantra 2.0 (1999 cc) in Peninsula Malaysia with zero percent NCD costs roughly RM1,223* yearly to insure, compared to a brand new Hyundai Elantra which can be insured at RM3,950 annually*.
