Hyundai's biggest seller, the Hyundai i10, has scooped yet another award and has been named 'Best City Car' by CarBuyer. Benefitting recently from a refresh both inside and out, the Hyundai i10 now looks even better and with improved ultra-modern engines, offers better fuel economy, lower emissions and stronger performance.
The CarBuyer judging panel reviewed and rated every new model on sale, focusing on performance, safety, running costs, mpg, owner satisfaction and reliability. Dan Strong, CarBuyer editor, explained why the Hyundai i10 was a clear winner in the city car category:
"A recent redesign means that the Hyundai i10 looks better than ever. It has always been affordable, economical to run, fun to drive and very practical, but now it's stylish and well made too. For our money, there's no better city car around."
"The new Hyundai i10 represents a big step up in terms of quality and desirability, yet it remains great value for money. What's more, the revised model now comes with the company's triple care warranty, which ensures peace of mind by offering unlimited mileage cover, free car health checks and roadside assistance for five years. There's also a fuel efficient 'BLUE' model - the company's first car to dip below the 99g/km CO2 barrier - making it free from road tax and the congestion charge in London. Don't be fooled by the compact dimensions, the versatile interior means you really can transport a growing family and all that travels with it".
Dan Strong presented the award to Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK's managing director at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
Tony Whitehorn commented: "The i10 is a fantastic city car that has received wide industry praise since it was first launched in 2008. Now, with the facelift model on sale, the i10 is even better, offering consumers a great all round package. We are extremely proud to receive this accolade from CarBuyer".
