Diesel power units are inherently more efficient than petrol engines. They produce more torque, use less fuel, generate fewer emissions, and, lucky for you, they’re pretty fun to drive as well. Today’s turbo-charged diesel engines are better for the environment thanks to a combination of clean-burning low-sulphur fuel, improved control of particulate emissions and refined performance.
Diesel power is all about great fuel economy – around 18% better than petrol on average. This means more kilometers per litre, fewer stops and bigger savings for you.
Powerful & quiet
Super low-speed torque makes the modern diesel vehicle very drivable around town, with great acceleration and better responsiveness. What’s more, diesel clatter, vibration and “torque lag” are now a thing of the past.
In fact, Hyundai now has some of the most advanced and reliable diesel engines on the planet. Little wonder then that we have had the Number One selling diesel passenger vehicle range in New Zealand since 2006.
To ensure your diesel vehicle stays in tip-top shape, it’s very important to maintain it regularly. With proper maintenance, the Hyundai diesel range keeps running costs low without compromising power and performance. And it all starts with servicing.
The service intervals on Hyundai diesel vehicles are exactly the same as on our petrol vehicles: the first month after purchasing, and then every 15,000kms or yearly after that, whichever comes first. This service
schedule may differ for vehicles being used under severe operation conditions, like dusty, salty or unpaved roads, or in very cold weather. Refer to your owner’s manual for further information.
