Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has collaborated with Shell to launch the Shell-Hyundai Helix HX 7 AH and Shell-Hyundai Ultra AH engine oils, both are specially formulated for optimum use in Hyundai vehicles.
These oils are available in semi-synthetic and fully synthetic version, and is claimed to optimise the performance of Hyundai engines by increasing fuel economy, cooling performance, lubricity under extreme temperature as well as offering excellent oxidation protection.
These oils are deemed suitable for engines that run on petrol, diesel, NGV, bio-diesel, and ethanol blends - which is a good thing we suppose, but we haven’t yet seen a Hyundai running ethanol.
According to Shell Lubricants General Manager – Malaysia and Singapore, Leslie Ng, the decision by HSDM was a clear endorsement of the premium quality of Shell Helix motor oils and part of a global partnership with Hyundai Motor Company that saw Shell became the exclusively recommended aftermarket motor oil supplier for Hyundai vehicles worldwide.
“We are delighted to supply HDSM with high-quality motor oils that offer proven benefits to Hyundai owners in the form of superior engine performance and protection; cleaner engines and better fuel economy. Malaysia will be among 70 markets around the world that will see co-branded motor oils manufactured by Shell recommended in Hyundai workshops and made available to customers,” he said.
For owners interested interested in using these specially developed oils on their Hyundai vehicles, HSDM will be rolling them out to all Hyundai authorised service centres in Peninsular Malaysia starting from December 2015 and in East Malaysia starting in January 2016.
There's just something about cars. It's a conveyance, it's a liability, it's a tool; but it can also be a source of joy, pride, inspiration and passion. It's much like clothes versus fashion. And like the latter, the pursuit of perfection never ends.
