Last year it was a triple victory, but this year Hyundai has picked up an impressive four accolades at the What Car? Used Car Awards, further demonstrating the brand’s long-standing reputation for quality, value for money and reliability.
This latest recognition from one of the industry’s most trusted publications saw the IONIQ crowned ‘Best Used Green Car’ and ‘Best Used Green Car for Under £16,000’. Moreover, the i10 was named ‘Best Used City Car for Under £9,000’, with its predecessor winning the ‘Under £4,000’ category.
IONIQ is one of the most versatile ‘green’ vehicles on the market; judges named the hybrid version as their pick, thanks to fuel economy of 83mpg and a refined driving experience. Alex Robbins, Used Cars Editor at What Car?, commented:“The most widely available IONIQ of all is the hybrid version, and this is a great car in its own right, with terrific real-world fuel economy, lots of standard equipment and some remarkably appealing used prices. Plus, of course, you get Hyundai's five-year warranty, and the IONIQ’s solid showing in our Reliability Survey means it should last the course, too. All of which made it an obvious choice for our Used Green Car of the Year award.”
Hyundai made its name in the UK with city cars, and the i10 has continued to be recognised by What Car? in two ‘Best Used City Car’ categories, due to its spacious, refined cabin and excellent value for money. The i10’s luxurious equipment list includes steering mounted cruise control, a heated leather steering wheel and heated front seats, providing allowing buyers all the creature comforts and convenience of a much larger car.
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK President and CEO, commented on the quadruple win:“It’s an absolute privilege to accept four more What Car? Used Car Awards wins, taking our total in the last two years to seven. We’ve worked extremely hard on value for money and reliability across all of our models so it’s fantastic to see two of our most diverse models recognised by What Car?. Our industry-leading 5-Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty is fully transferable across owners, giving even our used car customers ultimate peace-of-mind, with roadside assistance, health checks and repairs included.”
