Hyundai Rentals in Iceland

Hyundai, translated as ‘modernity’ in Korean, has become famous for the reliability, safety and fuel efficiency of its vehicle fleet. Turn heads around every one of Reykjavik’s corners as you cruise down its streets in the Hyundai i10, i30 or Kona or take to the hills and go wild in the Hyundai Tucson 4x4. Dreaming is fine but living is better!

Tour the Ring Road in your trustworthy Iceland Hyundai i10, i30 or Kona rental or plough through difficult terrain (including the F-Roads) in the reliable and robust Hyundai Tucson SUV! Are you thinking ‘why should I choose Hyundai over other car brands?’. Well, here’s your answer:

  • Safety. For better or for worse, through thick and thin… No, you’re not getting married but Hyundai’s commitment to your safety is on another level! Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection, Smart Cruise-Control and Lane Change Assist are just a few of the unique features in place to ensure you stay safe at all times.

  • Technology. High-end, state-of-the-art technology is a given when you take a seat in a Hyundai (it stands for ‘modernity’, after all). The car giant has really upped its game in terms of emerging tech and is taking big steps towards fully autonomous driving and comes equipped with the latest connectivity features, including: an up-to-8-inch color touchscreen, advanced smartphone connectivity and wireless charging.

  • Fuel Efficiency. Some might say that Nostradamus gave Hyundai a heads up about rising gas prices… Well, for one reason or another, the manufacturer has always focused on maximum fuel economy, and it turns out that skyrocketing fuel prices have made this a bigger perk than ever. Want to cruise the Land of Fire and Ice without making a hole in your pocket? Go Hyundai!

  • Freedom. In the words of Hyundai, ‘No limits, no barriers, freedom is the power of mobility’. Let your hair down (or don’t if you have none), get behind the wheel and begin your journey to freedom. Feel the shackles around your wrists and ankles fall to the ground with every gear shift, the breeze on your face lifting you up like a bird soaring the skies! Iceland is at your feet, what are you waiting for?

Reading about how great your Hyundai rental in Iceland can be is all very well, but an image is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand images, so see for yourself how the Hyundai Tucson goes off road in Iceland and makes short work of crossing this river!

Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? You’re in luck! We’ve already provided answers to the most common questions regarding car rentals in Iceland.

The best locations to rent a Hyundai in Iceland are our Reykjavik and Keflavik International Airport offices.

Our pick-up and drop-off services are available 365 days a year. Fill in all the required information when you complete your booking and we’ll take you to your rental vehicle in a jiffy!

We have the Hyundai i10, i30, Kona and Tucson in our vehicle fleet for you to choose from! The i10, i30 and Kona are great city cars, while the Tucson is one of the most popular 4WD rental cars in Iceland.

Want to stick to Reykjavik and the surrounding areas or travel along the Ring Road during the summer? The Hyundai i10, i30 and Kona are great choices!

Is your goal to explore the more remote corners of Iceland, go down every path and traverse every crossing? The Hyundai Tucson is what you want!

Just think carefully about where you want to go during your stay and choose the right Hyundai rental in Iceland for you!

Renting our most popular Hyundai (i10) in Iceland for 1 week will cost you around $637 ($91 per day). This may vary depending on the season.

You can choose from a wide range of extras to add to your Hyundai rental: multiple types of insurance, extra driver, roof box, baby seat, Wi-Fi, GPS… You name it, we’ve got it! Click here to check the full list of insurance and rental extras offered by Reykjavik Cars.

That really depends on the Hyundai model you decide to rent! The Hyundai Tucson is suitable for dirt trails and F-roads, which means that you’ll be able to reach even the most remote corners of Iceland! On the other hand, the Hyundai i10, i30 and Kona are City cars, so you’ll be limited to urban areas, like Reykjavik, and their surroundings.

Please note that you may encounter rivers when going down dirt trails and F-roads but we do NOT recommend crossing them, as the rental car insurance does not cover any damage caused while doing so.

The Tucson and Duster are both 4x4 SUVs and have very similar features, thus making it hard to set them apart!

We have both vehicles in our fleet and know them well, so let’s take a closer look and break down their pros and cons: renting a Dacia Duster in Iceland is a solid choice if you are on a budget and want a reliable 4x4 crossover that can get you to your destination in one piece; however, the Hyundai Tucson is bigger in every way, allowing for 5 passengers to travel in total comfort, as well as having a much larger trunk.

If it’s power you are after, the Tucson burns a bit more fuel but has 150 HP against the Duster’s 100 HP and an incorporated All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system!

In terms of price, both the Duster and the Tucson are oscillating around the $103 mark. The final choice is yours and it’s all about priorities, so sleep on it and secure your Iceland rental vehicle when you wake up!

The Hyundai i30 and the VW Golf are both compact City cars and have very similar features, which explains why deciding between them has you in a pickle!

The Hyundai i30 is a worthy rival to the Volkswagen Golf, as it brings to the table a more modern and innovative look, a more spacious interior (specially the trunk) and very lively and responsive performance and handling. On the other hand, the VW Golf’s timeless appearance can be said to bring to the table a welcome familiarity, as well as standing out for its unmatched raw power and the last-gen technology powering its drive console.

Honestly, they are both top-of-the-range compact rentals to explore Iceland in, and they are both guaranteed to get you where you want to go.

In terms of price, you can hire the i30 for $103 per day against the more expensive Golf for $167 per day. The final choice is yours and it’s all about priorities, so sleep on it and secure your Iceland rental vehicle when you wake up!
