Hyundai on the Isle of Wight began with Wight Motors in Ryde in the year 2000. Beginning with classic Hyundai’s such as the Accent and the Coupe.
It launched very successfully, proving a hit with Islanders. In 2002 Hyundai introduced the 5-year warranty, the first of its kind, and which now extends to a 5-year roadside assistance cover also. At this time, it was the 16th largest car manufacturer in the world.
With the rapid expansion of the Hyundai Motor Company, the range and the quality of the vehicles vastly improved. Today it boasts the award winning i10, which has won Which Car? Best City Car for 3 years running, among many other awards. This has now meant Hyundai are now the 5th largest car manufacturer in the world.
With having Hyundai for 16 years at Wight motors, our team have seen the vast expansion of the company, with Wight Motors and Hyundai growing together over the years. Jeff Simmonds, our long standing sales executive, has seen many years at Wight Motors and many years with Leslies now. With Sales Executive Chris Barker joining the Leslies Hyundai team just a few years ago. So if you fancy popping in for a test drive or just to enquire, come and see our experienced Hyundai Sales Team on College Close in Sandown.
