Seaway Hyundai opened a new lane for modern innovation in Cornwall 10 years ago, and the future is just as promising.
The dealership's rearview reflects a decade full of accolades, but Marc Lapointe, general manager of Seaway Hyundai, is focused on the road ahead.
"Every manufacturer makes a great vehicle, but it's our people that make it a remarkable experience," said Lapointe, 31.
Seaway Hyundai is armed with a team of leaders fully equipped with unprecedented brand knowledge. Lapointe credits them for helping steer the dealership in the right direction.
His sales department, service team, and highly-skilled technicians are a unique mix of professionals with young blood and years of experience.
Their newly renovated store provides customers with an impressive indoor look at their exciting 2014 lineup. For many Cornwall and area drivers, making the decision to get behind the wheel of a Hyundai was made inside their luxurious showroom.
"There has been a tremendous amount of growth at Seaway Hyundai since we opened in Cornwall," he said.
Increases and expansions in their service department, lot, office space, staff, customer satisfaction, and new and used vehicle sales are a constant trend.
The entire Hyundai vehicle lineup: Accent Hatchback, Elantra Coupe, Accent Sedan, Veloster, Elantra, Elantra GT, Veloster Turbo, Sonata, Sonata Hybrid, Genesis Coupe, Genesis Sedan, Tucson, Santa Fe, and Santa Fe XL come with a five-year warranty and a 100,000-kilometre guarantee.
Many popular models have some of the highest fuel economy available, extremely large interior space and trunk space, Bluetooth technology, telescopic steering, six air bags, and a six-speed transmission.
The dealership launches a new promotion each month where their customers have a chance to win brand new flat screens, furniture, and cash giveaways.
"It's a lot of fun when our drivers win a prize. We try to do and give a little more to differentiate ourselves," said Lapointe.
Seaway Hyundai is located at 701 Rosemount Avenue in Cornwall, Ontario. For more information, visit www.hyundaicanada.com.
