The New South Wales-based motoring organisation, NRMA, has announced Hyundai's Getz S and i30 SX CRDi as the most cost effective cars to own and operate when comparing private vehicle whole of life costs.
“We are delighted that Hyundai product is continuing to win recognition and awards in Australia,” said Kevin McCann, Hyundai’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “To win these categories is tremendous and demonstrates that in these challenging times, the range of high quality award-winning Hyundai vehicles is more relevant than ever.”
“Hyundai vehicles – including the i30 SX and iMax, which also recently collected Australia’s Best Cars 2008 awards – rated well, offering the cheapest whole of life costs.” said Brad O’Hara, NRMA operating costs expert.
Calculations are for private ownership in New South Wales, based on an annual distance of 15,000 kilometres travelled over an ownership period of five years.
