Hyundai designs its vehicles for every day usefulness and comfort, and you’ll find the same dedication to those values – and to value itself – in the accessories and clothing items of the Hyundai Merchandise Collection. Whether buying for yourself or a Hyundai-owning friend or relative, you’re sure to find something you just can’t do without.
The Hyundai Merchandise Collection is available through your dealer or online (www.cmgestore.com/hyu2/). Here’s a look at a few key items:
Some luxury sedans offer power rear window shades, which can be useful for shielding babies from the harsh sunlight, for example. Now you can add a similar benefit to your Hyundai with the Static Dimmer Auto Shade. The see-through shade can protect against the sun’s rays and also help reduce the temperature inside the vehicle. Best of all, there’s no tricky installation; just press the shade to the glass and it sticks via static cling. The shade rises and lowers with the window. If you want to transfer the shade to another vehicle, just peel it off. (Helpful hint: The shade features a Hyundai logo, but you can use it on any vehicle.)
Speaking of things that stick and remove easily, check out the Sticky Roadster Pad. This little tray can hold a smartphone or digital music player, or sunglasses, coins and other items. It’s made from a patented gel material that grips tightly to a dashboard or console, yet peels off instantly. Just clean it to renew the grip. If you have a GPS app on your smartphone, use the Sticky Roadster Pad to position the phone for easy visibility.
People might start calling you MacGyver if they see you take out your LED Folding Tec Tool. This handy, compact folding device fits in your pocket and packs two flathead screwdrivers, a knife, bottle opener, spring-loaded pliers, LED light and even a saw and awl.
There’s nothing MacGyver-ish about the Silver Grip Tumbler, but this 14-ounce drink container features a stainless-steel liner and double-wall insulation to keep your beverage warm. The black rubber grip and swivel lid makes sipping easy, and the Hyundai logo shows off vehicle pride.
Do you sometimes lose your keys – right in your own house? Attach your keys to the Metal Magnetic Key Holder, and then put them on the fridge. This item pays for itself in stress reduction.
In case the hot summer made you forget, cooler days and wet weather will surely return. Fend off the chill with the Super 10 Hoodie. This sporty-looking garment comes in charcoal with the Hyundai name screened onto the front pocket. The full athletic cut and 10-ounce super weight 60/40 ring spun cotton/polyester blend ensure comfort while double needle stitching and rib-knit cuffs and waistband won’t stretch out of shape. It’s available in sizes medium to 2X large.
When the chill really comes in, you can slip the black Columbia jacket right over the Super 10 Hoodie, keeping out the wet and wind. The jacket includes 57 percent recycled materials, a boon for environmental concerns. Special features include gill-inspired venting in the back and a stowaway hood that you can take out only when needed. Available sizes range from medium to 2X. The Hyundai logo is embroidered on the back yoke, conveying your brand preference.
If you envision yourself driving a luxurious Hyundai Genesis, why not bring that feeling to the table with the Genesis Wine Stopper? The satin-silver chrome flared topper is laser-engraved with the Genesis logo. Anti-spill rubber rings help keep the wine in the bottle and fresh for another night. It’s a functional little slice of luxury.
With extremely attractive prices on items in the Hyundai Merchandise Collection, you can splurge for someone else and yourself. If you can’t decide what to buy for someone, you can also purchase gift certificates in $25, $50 and $100 denominations.
