i10 crowned What Car?

New Generation Hyundai i10 has retained its position at the top of its class after being named What Car? 'Best City Car' for the second consecutive year. Praised for its high quality interior materials, refinement, ease of driving and big-car features, i10 beat stiff competition from the likes of VW Up, Smart Fortwo and Skoda Citigo.

Jim Holder, Editor at What Car? 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 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 still costs less than £11,000, which makes it stunning value. The Hyundai is a genuine threat to a lot of superminis."

Tony Whitehorn, President & CEO, Hyundai Motor UK said: "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. "

Priced from £8,595 OTR, New Generation i10 features road noise levels which are among the best in its class while the suspension delivers a dynamic driving experience. Sophisticated, stylish and thoughtful design touches ensures broad appeal in the City Car segment, while quality materials and high end features, including air conditioning and Bluetooth®, deliver big car comfort for the driver and passengers alike.
