Hyundai has added three new awards to their ever-growing collection, with double success in at the 2015 Honest John Awards and the Fleet World Honours.
At the Honest John Awards, Hyundai's best-selling car, the i10 was crowned 'Most Popular City Car' for the second consecutive year, whilst the Santa Fe took home the award for 'Most Popular SUV'.
The awards are purely decided by the readers of the popular motoring review site HonestJohn.co.uk, and give a real insight into each car on the market. The awards recognise the models that users search for most, and cars that receive the most positive reviews are the winners.
Dan Harrison, Editor for HonestJohn.co.uk, commented on the success of the Hyundai i10: “The Hyundai i10 has retained the top small hatch spot for 2015, winning the 'Most Popular City Car' for the second consecutive year. It isn't difficult to understand the i10's outstanding popularity; it's a stylish city car, that's fun to drive, well-made and excellent value for money. What's more, for added peace of mind, it's backed up by Hyundai's dependable five-year warranty.
“Meanwhile, the Hyundai Santa Fe is an outstanding SUV, with excellent interior quality and sleek exterior styling. With so much on offer, it's little surprise to see the Santa Fe become the most popular SUV with the readers of HonestJohn.co.uk"
Hyundai were also celebrating at the 2015 World Fleet Honours as the i10 was again awarded 'Best City Car'. Judges praised the i10 for its desirability and its low running costs.
Editor of Fleet World, Dan Moody, said: “The smallest sector of the market is also the most demanding, and Hyundai is leading the pack with the New Generation i10. Sales of 25,000 units in its first year set a new record for a Korean car, and take-up is heavily weighted towards top trim levels. It's a sign that demand is drive by desirability as well as low running costs.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, spoke about the company's latest awards: “We're extremely proud that our brand is continuing to win so many prestigious awards, including our recent wins from HonestJohn.co.uk. This recognition confirms our belief that our vehicles are among the best in the market for providing customers with high quality, value for money and style."
