The progress of price
A quick visit to Hyundai’s Australian site to check if there had been any price movement on our Tucson Highlander CDRI since its arrival at the beginning of the year indicated a rise of $1960, to $47,450. Added to this was $4756 in NSW on-road costs, taking the driveaway figure to $52,206. But possibly pre-empting any haggling, the site offered a reduction of $4345, curiously described as a ‘Fleet Discount’, taking the on-road price to a more palatable $47,861. No doubt a persistent haggler pitched against a motivated dealer principal could trim that figure further.
