Guide to Shopping for Your Hyundai Online

Many car buyers enjoy the whole traditional purchasing experience, from visiting the dealership and finding the car they want, to negotiating a finance deal face-to-face, before finally driving off the dealer’s lot in their dream car. But, with our increasingly busy lives, not everyone has the time or inclination to go through the entire process in person.

That’s why Huffines Hyundai of Plano, Texas, has made it easy for drivers from Plano, McKinney, Frisco, Lewisville, and Carrollton to buy a new or used Hyundai online from the comfort of their own home. With our Click and Drive car-buying experience, you can find your perfect Hyundai vehicle, arrange financing, and value your trade without leaving home. Here’s our guide to shopping for your Hyundai online.

Establish Your Budget

Before you start shopping for your Hyundai, you need to set your budget. Establish the monthly payments you can afford based on your household income. Don’t forget to allow for any unexpected expenses over the coming years. Decide if a new or used Hyundai suits you best. If you want to be more eco-friendly, look into Hyundai’s superb hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicles. Then, find a trusted local Hyundai dealership, such as Huffines Hyundai of Plano, that has an extensive inventory of SUVs, sedans, and hatchbacks.

Value Your Trade

Finding out the trade-in value of your current car is an important part of establishing your budget for a new vehicle. On the Huffines of Plano website, go to the Value a Trade page and fill out your car’s details to get a Kelley Blue Book valuation of its worth. Subject to verification, that amount will be applied to the deal on your new car. You may be pleasantly surprised and save more than you thought.

New or Pre-Owned Hyundai?

Now comes the fun part of browsing the large range of vehicles at Huffines Hyundai of Plano. After your research, you probably know what style of car you want and the features that are important to you. If you’ve decided on a new Hyundai, you can go to the new vehicle inventory section of the website and look at the models and trims.

Whether it’s a stylish Hyundai Elantra or Accent sedan, an SUV like the Kona, Santa Fe, or Tucson, or the all-new Santa Cruz sport adventure vehicle, you’ll find an amazing choice at Huffines Hyundai of Plano. However, if a new Hyundai with the specifications you want stretches your budget too far, you could take a look at our used car inventory.

Among our pre-owned vehicles, which include many one-owner cars, you’ll likely find a nearly new, higher-specification Hyundai within your budget. Certified pre-owned cars are extensively inspected and give you the peace of mind of warranty coverage. Our high-quality used Hyundai cars offer the closest thing to buying new.

Check Out Our Deals

Whether you decide on a new or used Hyundai, check out our new and pre-owned vehicle specials and the current incentives to see if you can save even more money on your car purchase. At this stage, you could give our dealership a call and speak to a member of our helpful sales team. They can discuss with you exactly what you’re looking for and tell you if there are any further incentives for the specific Hyundai model you want. If you don’t ask, you don’t get!

Get Pre-Approved for Financing

Unless you can pay for your new car in cash upfront, you’ll need to arrange financing, and at Huffines Hyundai of Plano we make that easy for you. Start out with our online payment calculator to get an estimate of your monthly payments. It takes into account the price of the car, your down payment, the interest rate, and your chosen loan period.

Once you’ve found the ideal terms and payments to suit your budget, you can get pre-approved for credit. This step used to involve visiting the dealership’s finance center to fill out lengthy forms. But now, with Click and Drive, you can fill out the online finance application and securely submit all the necessary credit information from home. 

Our finance experts are committed to securing the ideal auto loan for your circumstances. Whether you have good credit, bad credit, or no credit, our team will work with you to get you the best deal. If you have an existing car loan, we can help to adjust the contract or refinance the loan for you.

Chat With the Dealership

If you have any questions or doubts about the vehicle buying process, you don’t need to visit our Plano dealership. You can chat with our sales or finance experts online or on the phone. If you’re not sure which features come standard with your new car’s trim level, or you want to make sure you’re choosing the best finance option, our professional team is waiting to help you out. Just click on the Contact button on the website.

Schedule a Test Drive

OK, at this point you’re going to have to leave home. You don’t want to commit to buying a car until you’ve had the chance to drive it. At Huffines Hyundai of Plano, we offer you flexible test-drive options. You begin by scheduling your test drive online for the date and time of your choice. Then you can either come to the dealership to try out your chosen vehicle, or a member of our sales team will bring the car to any convenient location you choose for the test drive.

Collect Your New Hyundai

We’re sure that, once you’ve test-driven a new Hyundai, you’ll fall in love with it. You decided on the car you want, the financing is in place, and all the hard work has been done online. All you need to do now is sign the contract and collect your gleaming new Hyundai. For even more peace of mind, we even offer a three-day worry-free exchange.

At Huffines Hyundai of Plano, we’ve seen happy customers from Plano, Richardson, Garland, Denton, and beyond driving away in their dream car. Contact us or start the simple Click and Drive online car buying process today to get behind the wheel of a new Hyundai.
