New Generation Hyundai i10 wins City Car accolade
High Wycombe--May 15, 2014: The New Generation i10 has been recognised as the most popular City Car in the annual honestjohn.co.uk awards, as the most reviewed car in this class on the site over the last 12 months.
The i10 has been honoured in the fourth year of the awards that recognise and reward the cars and vans that the honestjohn.co.uk users search for most on the site.
Dan Harrison, editor, honestjohn.co.uk, said: “We were mightily impressed when we drove the new i10 and it seems our users are similarly as keen. Despite the review only going live towards the end of 2013, the amount of users viewing it has been nothing short of phenomenal. It has gone straight to the top in our list of city cars and we expect it to be similarly successful in the sales charts thanks to its blend of refinement, handling and quality – not to mention the usual Hyundai reliability and a five-year warranty.”
The New Generation i10 – now built at Hyundai’s manufacturing facility in Izmit, Turkey − is currently the best-selling model in the Hyundai range in the UK. Since launch in January 2014, the new model has continued to build upon the success of the outgoing model with 10,000 cars sold far.
Tony Whitehorn, President & CEO, said: “To receive this award for i10, the fifth accolade since we launched the new model earlier this year, is a testament to the continued popularity of the model here in the UK. The New Generation i10 has built upon its solid credentials of value, comfort and practicality with an injection of the style, refinement and specification that consumers would expect from the class above.”
