The Eon, Hyundai’s newest sub-compact PC model that was launched in 2012, shoved PC sales up to complement the good performance of the Accent (16%) and the Elantra (27%).

Likewise, total sales of Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV) increased by 28% compared to December 2011, driven by aggressive promotions of the Tucson and the timely arrival of the all-new Santa Fe and the Grand Starex.
