Popular automotive brand, Hyundai are celebrating success after being recognised in the industry for their excellent products, following the win of various awards from renowned organisations What Car? and Carbuyer.

Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK commented on the brands success, following their multiple victories:

"It's a tremendous honour to take away two category wins, and truly demonstrates how value and innovation go hand-in-hand at Hyundai. The IONIQ is one of the most impressive eco-cars on the market, while the new i30 delivers a hugely rewarding high-performance experience- and both are a testament to our brand's remarkable product progress in recent years."

Let's take a look at the model and awards the popular automotive group have achieved:


Hyundai Motor has received a hat-trick of awards to add to its collection, following Carbuyer Best Cars Awards, where they were presented with three accolades amongst two different models.

i30 N: Best Hot Hatchback & Best Cheap Sports Car

The high-performance i30 N by Hyundai has been awarded two accolades and has been crowned 'Best Hot Hatchback' and 'Best Cheap Sports Car'. Carbuyer editor, Stuart Milne is impressed by the i30 N, he said:

"With plenty of power, a sweet chassis, exceptional steering and a fantastic six-speed gearbox, the Hyundai i30 N has shot right to the top of the hot-hatchback class."

The i30 N boasts advanced racing inspired features including a launch control system which manages engine torque off the line, as well as a quick-shifting 6 speed manual transmission with shift timing indicator and rev matching technology to achieve perfect downshifts every time. High performance driving data is displayed on an 8-inch touchscreen inside the cabin of the i30 N and innovative technology allows the i30 N's suspension, engine output and even sound to be altered to better suit your driving environment, and road conditions at the touch of a button. Hyundai have truly excelled with this high-performance road car and judges have congratulated Hyundai on 'shaming the class establishment'.

After taking the i30 N's reliability, price, running costs and practicality as well as its performance and handling in to consideration, it was a clear winner amongst it's competitors in the category.


Hyundai IONIQ: Best Plug-in Hybrid

Judges at the ceremony, compromising members of Carbuyer's road-test team have praised the IONIQ's practicality and real-world efficiency, and has named the popular Hyundai model the 'Best Plug-in Hybrid'. The Hyundai IONIQ offers pure electric driving range of up to 39 miles, with a low emissions figure of 26g/km.

The IONIQ's clever packaging and responsive driving experience was also highly commended by judges, as was its great value for money- Stuart Milne, Carbuyer editor, described the IONIQ as an exceptional car, he said:

"Thanks to space for five occupants and a big boot, you need to make few sacrifices to enjoy truly enviable real-world fuel economy and a thoroughly decent driving experience. Its infotainment system is one of the easiest to use and it undercuts its closest rivals on price, too."



Hyundai i10: Best used city car

The current generation Hyundai i10, a compact and classic city car which boasts impeccable style and has been engineered to provide a comfortable and lively driving experience has been named as the 'Best Used City Car', in the 1-3 years old category by What Car? in their Used Car Awards. A combination of compact dimensions and clever use of space within the cabin of the i10, amongst other aspects, is what lead the small hatchback to a triumph.

The second generation i10 has not just been praised by judges from the What Car? Used Car Awards, but by motorists and the media as well. The small but spacious hatchback has impressed with an ample range of efficient petrol engines and quiet cruising manors, and although it boasts a small engine and a good fuel economy, the i10 can also handle motorway driving.

In addition to the current generation's success, the previous generation Hyundai i10 has also been awarded with an accolade for the same award, but in the 7-10-year-old category. The current generation i10 may boast a few internal and external changes to its predecessor, but there is one thing that the vehicles have in common; victory. Despite strong competition in this category, both generations of the i10 have proved themselves to be great city cars and offer substantial value for money.
