Hyundai has officially launched its ‘Click to Buy’ service online, allowing customers to purchases their cars via a webstore.

The move was first announced in late 2016, and currently features the i10, i20, i30, Tucson and Santa Fe for a fixed price.

Hyundai claims the entire process of buying a car with cash can take less than five minutes. Those looking to buy a car with finance, however, will need to visit a dealership to sign any contacts before receiving the car

Home delivery is available to both cash buyers and those purchasing with finance.

The site is able to give a trade-in price for their current car, as well as the ability to use trade-in funds towards the new car purchase.

Tony Whitehorn, president and chief executive officer of Hyundai UK said: “I’m incredibly excited to launch ‘Click To Buy’ today, our new website which allows customers to buy a new Hyundai completely online through our entire dealer network across the UK.

“Click To Buy is an industry first developed by Hyundai in-house and it aims to make the car buying process easier and more transparent than ever before. Consumers today demand choice and simplicity; they already expect to be able to buy a car in the same way that they’d be able to purchase their clothes or electrical goods online. This is a pivotal time for the car industry as a whole and the start of what I think will be a transformative period in terms of how people buy and own cars going forward.”
