Get More Out of Life with Hyundai

Wazzup Pilipinas!

In today’s fast-paced world, people are pressured to excel in order to stand out. Sadly, many end up relegating what their hearts truly desire. Worse, some settle despite knowing they deserve more.

It’s time for a change. Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), the Philippines’ official distributor of Hyundai passenger and commercial vehicles, is advocating this mindset shift with the “Gusto Ko, Kaya Ko, Sama Tayo.” campaign.

A follow-up to last year’s “Gusto Ko Hyundai!” nationwide brand bid, this campaign focuses on customer-driven innovations that will make Filipino consumers aspire and brave their respective life journeys toward the achievement of their dreams. And HARI, as it turns a new leaf on its 16th year, would like to play an active role in this journey becoming Filipinos’ kasama sa biyahe ng buhay or lifetime partner.
