For the second year running the Hyundai i10 has taken home one of the most prestigious awards handed out by What Car?, for Best City Car.
Taking into account the car's high quality interior materials, ease of driving and big car features, the Hyundai saw of fierce competition from cars such as the VW Up, Skoda Citigo and the Smart Fortwo for the award of 'Best City Car'. The competitor's were no match however with the i10 securing the award for the second consecutive year.
Jim Holder, Editor of What Car? Magazine said: "Last year the Hyundai i10 stunned us by stealing the crown from the VW Up. It's just as nimble to drive and comfortable in the town as the VW, but offers even greater practicality, class-leading refinement and loads of kit.
"Our choice – the 1.2-litre petrol – is wonderfully smooth, and quick enough to keep up with larger traffic. In Premium trim it feels suitably expensive inside, yet costs less than £11,000, which makes it stunning value. The Hyundai is a genuine threat to a lot of superminis."
The New Generation i10 offers a dynamic driving experience, with road noise levels amongst the best in its class and a fantastic suspension proving a very relaxing driving environment. It also has a wealth of high end features such as Bluetooth, air conditioning and stylish design features to compete with the entire City Car Segment.
President and CEO at Hyundai UK, Tony Whitehorn, had this to say: "2014 was a major year for the New Generation i10, which proved to be an instant hit with existing Hyundai customers and those new to the brand. As we approach 12 full months on sale, i10 is proving more popular than ever – a trend that we expect to continue in 2015.
"We are delighted that What Car? has recognised i10 as the best City Car for the second consecutive year in what is an extremely competitive segment. This award is a testament to the superb design and engineering which has gone into creating this cleverly packaged car."
We are currently offering the New Generation i10 1.0S 5dr model from just £7,760, or less than £130 deposit and £130 per month – our lowest cash price yet!
