We were extremely pleased to see that the Hyundai i20 has been named the ‘Used Car of the Year’ at the FirstCar Awards. Not only this, it also picked up the title of ‘Used Car of the Year up to £10,000’ at the same awards, truly showcasing this model’s high standards.
These awards just add to a number of accolades that the South Korean manufacturer has picked up recently, as the revolutionary IONIQ was named the ‘Best Used Green Car’ and the i10 was awarded the title of ‘Best Used City Car Under £9,000 in the What Car? Awards earlier this year.
The FirstCar judges praised the hatchback for its excellent value, dependability, overall quality and owner transferable five-year warranty, with Editor David Motton going on to say: “The Hyundai i20 makes a great used buy for any new driver. It's safe, easy to drive and very practical. Independent reliability data from Warranty Direct shows how dependable Hyundais are. What's more, anyone buying an i20 that's under five years old will still benefit from the balance of the original warranty. That's a big plus for first-time buyers looking to avoid any unexpected bills.”
No matter your driving preferences, the Hyundai i20 is available with a host of exciting and practical features, which include parting sensors, a panoramic sunroof, touchscreen navigation and a range of advanced petrol engines to meet your requirements.
Michael Stewart, Fleet Director at Hyundai, said: “The Hyundai brand has been built upon excellent reliability and astonishing value for money, and in that sense the i20 really is the perfect representation of the brand. Although Hyundai has now grown to include hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, ‘N’ performance models and a range of fully electric models, we are also committed to offering cars like the i20: affordable, practical, fun and perfect for first-time drivers.”
