Hyundai has launched a new limited edition Trajet, the SE, with around £2,400 extra equipment for only slightly more than the cost of the 2.0 GSI.

The SE model comes with DVD player, privacy glass, SmartNav satellite navigation and reversing sensors as standard.

Available with petrol or diesel engines, and manual or automatic transmissions, prices start at £16,495.

The rest of the Trajet range has also benefited from minor improvements.

The petrol 2.0 GSI now benefits from the CVVT engine previously seen in the Coupe, increasing power from 133 to 139bhp, while CO2 emissions fall from 223g/km to 208g/km. Fuel consumption is also improved – the combined figure rises from 30.4mpg to 32.5mpg.

Standard equipment for the 2.0 GSI and 2.0 CRTD GSI remains as before – driver, passenger and side airbags, ABS with EBD, power steering, seat belt pretensioners, front and rear air conditioning, electric front and rear windows, stereo RDS radio/CD unit, double folding second and third row seats (second and third row seats are removable), and sliding outer seats on second row.

However, all Trajets now feature a third three point seat belt in the rear, which means all passengers have the protection of a full seat belt.

All Hyundai models come with a full five year, unlimited mileage warranty which is transferable between owners.

As an added incentive, all facelifted Trajets bought between 1 July and 30 September will benefit from three years/30,000 miles’ free servicing.

The Trajet range starts at £15,495 for the 2.0 GSI manual, rising to £18,345 for the 2.0 CRTD SE automatic.

The SE will be available from July.
