Magna celebrates second anniversary

MAGNA Motors, local dealers for the Hyundai automotive and commercial brands, celebrated their second year in Jamaica with a church service at the St Andrew Parish Church in Half-Way-Tree last Sunday.

“Recently we commemorated our second anniversary with a church service at the St Andrew Parish Church to give the Lord thanks for the continued blessings bestowed on the Magna team, under the guidance of Father Orlando Gayle,” Carlos Geourzoung, sales manager at Magna Motors Dealership Limited, told Jamaica Observer's Auto magazine.

According to Geourzoung, since Magna's start in August 2015, the brand has made great strides in changing the perception of the Hyundai brand in Jamaica.

“Our good work has certainly given rise to industry growth, contributing to what was at the end of 2016 a 29.5 per cent growth in the market. We finished the year remarkably in fifth place among the top competitors in the island, and we have moved up to fourth place currently. Last year we were ranked number three within the Latin American market and received awards for 'Most Improved' and great performance in customer satisfaction,” he said.

Their efforts haven't gone unnoticed by the parent company as well.

“Our service department has performed exceptionally well and their efforts have been recognised by the Hyundai Motor Company in South Korea,” he said.

Geourzoung went on to elaborate on the company's plans for 2017 and beyond.

“We're now coming to the end of what was a three-month 'Unwrap', an early Christmas present sale which was an opportunity for our customers to save for an end of year bonus, while we took care of their monthly payments up to December 2017. We will continually give you #reasonstodrive. In the short term, we'll unveil product enhancements, feature developments, and as usual, great deals. In the long term new models and exciting ventures.”

Santa Fe, all the way

IN automotive circles the 1:1 ratio is a major achievement — be it horsepower to weight, or front-to-rear distribution. For the Hyundai Santa Fe it comes close, offering the same in terms of haulage capacity. For just a little over $7 million, depending on which trim one goes for, it's possible to get a seven-seat Sport Utility Vehicle. At roughly a million dollars a passenger, this places the Santa Fe in the very good bargain category.

However, value per passenger isn't the only trick up the Hyundai's sleeve. While styling is similar to the smaller Tucson, it retains the taut muscular lines that give it a rakish, slimmed, hip athletic look. In all, a handsome machine that does turn a head or two as it offers an upscale Euro-appeal from certain angles.

Value For The Dollar - Santa Fe SUV

Named after the city of Santa Fe in New Mexico, the Santa Fe SUV was introduced to the world in 2001 and was a hit with American buyers. Since then, Hyundai has more or less kept the same formula, by trying to provide the most bang for the consumer's buck with third generation model.

For the present model, the character lines throughout the body have become sharper and the vehicle's overall appearance seems slimmer than previous generations.
