Hyundai made use of 40 monkeys to test the durability of the new Hyundai i30 hatchback.

recently gathered 40 babboons to test the durability of the new hatchback. Product manager Felicity Wood confirmed the news and said:

“At Hyundai we believe in new thinking, which is why we decided to take a new approach with this durability test. You have to be pretty brave to subject a car to the most rigorous quality testers in the world, and the monkeys certainly gave our New Generation i30 a thorough examination! The fact that it survived with only a few scrapes is testament to the way a modern Hyundai is designed and engineered. We really do give a monkey’s about building tough cars!”

The 10-hour test was done at UK’s Knowsley Safari Park where the babboon spent the whole day playing with the car. The car survived and only suffered a minor paint scrape.
