At the 2011 Auto Express New Car awards, the Hyundai i10 has been named Best City Car for the second year in a row, whilst the Hyundai ix20 has been named Best Supermini MPV.

The the City Car segment, the Hyundai i10 won over models such as the Ford Ka and Kia Picanto, whilst the Hyundai ix20 competed against the Citroen C3 Picasso, Kia Venga and Nissan Note.

Auto Express Acting editor, Graham Hope, said of the Hyundai i10: "Competition in the city car sector is hotter than ever - and that makes the Hyundai i10's second consecutive victory in this category even more impressive. The i10 has the feel of a big car inside, while its composed driving dynamics mean it's as at home on the open road as on congested city streets."

Of the ix20, Hope continued: "The ix20 shot straight to the top of the sector when it hit showrooms last year, and it fully deserves its class-leading status. Not only does this practical model look great, but it brings new levels of cabin quality and comfort to the supermini-MPV sector. Choose the ix20 and you also get the security of buying a car from one of the most highly regarded dealer networks in the country."

Hyundai UK's managing director, Tony Whitehorn said: "It's always fantastic to receive positive recognition from the industry for our product offering. However, to be classed as the best in what are two highly competitive segments is tremendous and a true testament to the style, practicality, driveability and economy of these outstanding products.

"The Hyundai range has been completely revitalised over the last few years and we now have the strongest product line-up ever. This looks set to continue with the launch later this year of the all-new i40 Tourer and Saloon and the 1+2 Veloster coupe."
