New Generation Hyundai i10 Leads The Way In Carbuyer Awards
HIGH WYCOMBE, UNITED KINGDOM – Jan 3, 2014: The New Generation Hyundai i10 has been crowned ‘Car of the Year’ by leading car review website, CarBuyer. After scooping the ‘Best City Car’ category, it was awarded the overall title with the judges praising its quality, refinement, style and value.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief, Auto Express and CarBuyer, said: “The Hyundai i10 is small in stature and huge in talent. It offers so much for such a small price with real big car attributes ─ it’s well built, spacious and with loads of luxury kit on board. It makes you wonder why you ever need to pay more for a new car.”
CarBuyer.co.uk was launched just three years ago yet is already established as one of the UK’s most respected sources of car buying advice.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, says: “We are tremendously proud that the New Generation Hyundai i10 has been crowned CarBuyer’s ‘Car of the Year’ for 2014. This is Hyundai’s second major CarBuyer win after the i30 received the same accolade in 2012. This award is a true testament to just how far the Hyundai brand has come in recent years.”
It was a double win for Hyundai as the Santa Fe also won the ‘Best Large SUV’ category beating many other more established brands.
Buyers of the New Generation i10 will be offered the highest levels of comfort and safety equipment, with many features more common to segments above. Available equipment such as automatic climate control, heated leather steering wheel and cruise control with speed limiter provide bigger-car comfort, while safety features include standard-fitment stability control and six airbags.
As with all Hyundai’s passenger cars, the New Generation i10 is backed by the brand’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, which offers amongst the best warranty cover in the industry as judged by Auto Express. This includes five years unlimited mileage warranty, five years free roadside assistance and five years of annual vehicle health checks, which give customers ultimate peace of mind.
The Hyundai i10 goes on sale in the UK from 30 Jan 2014.
