Hyundai has partnered with vehicle accessories specialist Thule to offer U.S. owners a multitude of retrofit parts from the Swedish company’s catalog.
Owners can now purchase Thule’s vehicle bike racks, roof racks, winter and water sport racks, as well as other cargo carriers and basket accessories. The selection of Thule accessories will be available through Hyundai dealers nationwide beginning November 14.
Targeting owners who live an active life, these accessories are designed to transport sports equipment and luggage safely, easily and with style. The partnership comes at a time in which Hyundai is expanding its line of SUVs suited to an active lifestyle with models such as the full-size Palisade and the small Venue.
“Whether you go camping every weekend or need some extra space for your kid’s soccer gear, Thule and Hyundai are making it simpler than ever for you to maximize your lifestyle with this new accessory partnership. Thule is the leader in this space and their lifetime warranty is a good match to our brand aspirations,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning for Hyundai Motor America.
“Our industry leading rack products are a perfect match for Hyundai’s expanding line, and Thule’s award winning offering of solutions to help transport your gear, regardless of activity, will be a great addition for any Hyundai owner looking to live an active lifestyle,” added Tom Chimenti, director of original equipment sales, North America for Thule Group. The lifetime warranty Thule offers for its products will no doubt be an added bonus for Hyundai owners.
The Swedish company designs and manufactures products including roof racks, bike, water and winter sport carriers, roof boxes, luggage, computer and camera bags, sports bags and backpacks, and child-related products such as baby joggers, child bike seats and bike trailers. Its products are sold in more than 140 countries worldwide.
