BRAND NEW HYUNDAI IONIQ AND MULTI-AWARD WINNING i10 SCOOP TRIPLE-WIN AT 2017 CARBUYER AWARDS

Hyundai Motor has excelled in the 2017 Carbuyer awards scooping three awards for the Hyundai i10, IONIQ Hybrid and IONIQ Electric. The new IONIQ Hybrid was named Best Hybrid, the IONIQ Electric was awarded Best Road-Tax-Exempt and the multi-award winning i10 received the 'Best Car That's Cheap To Insure' title for the second consecutive year.

Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer, explains: “The Hyundai IONIQ is the new hybrid on the block, offering a far more mainstream look than radically-styled rivals. It’s good to drive, with a conventional dual-clutch automatic gearbox as opposed to the Prius’ CVT. That contributes to a nicer driving experience, too. It’s capable of around 88mpg fuel economy and if you buy one before April 2017, it won’t cost you anything to tax. The real clincher here, though, is the IONIQ’s price. It’s possible to park one on your driveway for less than £20,000, which is £3,000 less than the cheapest Prius.”

“There are plenty of cars exempt from vehicle excise duty (VED) today, but changes coming into force in April 2017 mean only owners of zero-emission cars will pay no tax. The IONIQ Electric is one of the larger EVs on sale, meaning it makes for good family transport. Plus it’s capable of travelling 174 miles on a charge – more than a Nissan Leaf. Speaking of which, it’s also nicer to drive than the Nissan and has a more upmarket interior, too. Charging takes about four and a half hours from a home wall box, or 30 minutes to 80% from a DC fast charger.”

“The Hyundai i10 is a former Carbuyer Car of the Year and still one of the very best small cars you can buy. If you’re buying a car with running costs firmly in mind, the i10 should be at the top of your list. The entry-level i10 falls in group 2, which is affordable for all. But it's the all-round ability of the i10 that is the clincher here. With low insurance bills, you can still enjoy a small, practical car that's good to drive, spacious and comes with an excellent five-year warranty.”

On Hyundai’s latest award win, Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, commented: “We’re extremely proud that we continue to win such prestigious awards for our constantly evolving product line-up. Receiving two awards from Carbuyer for our latest all-new model, IONIQ is fantastic and a testament to our company’s ongoing commitment to introducing more eco-friendly vehicles across our range and making them accessible to more people.

“i10 is the most awarded car in our portfolio and one of our best-selling models in the UK.  The new i10, on sale in January 2017, builds on that success and features new advanced active safety and connectivity features from the segments above, as well as modern design refinements, including the new signature Cascading front grille.”

Carbuyer is one of the UK’s leading car reviews website, receiving more than 1.4 million unique users a month, viewing a total of more than 5.5 million pages. This year marks the fifth year of the Carbuyer’s awards, with the awards being based on the 20 biggest questions asked by consumers.
