The new generation Hyundai i10 has been awarded ‘Car of the Year’ at the 2014 Car Dealer Power awards.
Voted for entirely by UK car dealers, the i10 triumphed over some tough competition from the likes of the popular Ford Fiesta ST and the Skoda Octavia. The dealers praised its looks, build quality, value for money, refinement and industry-leading five-year unlimited mileage warranty – that is helping to encourage repeat business.
James Batchelor, editor of Car Dealer magazine, said: “I am absolutely delighted to name the outstanding Hyundai i10 as Car of the Year in our annual Car Dealer Power awards.
Hundreds of UK dealers took part in this year’s survey which makes it the most comprehensive of its kind in the industry. Hyundai should take great comfort in knowing that this award has been voted for by dealer partners right across the UK – regardless of which franchise they represent.”
Tony Whitehorn, President & CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, commented: The New Generation i10 is a hugely significant model for our business and it plays a substantial role in the hotly contested city car segment in the UK. i10 has been Hyundai UK’s best-seller since 2009, and New Generation i10 continues this trend. We have sold 12,170 units of the i10 since launch in January of this year, and we are delighted that it not only appeals to existing customers, but is also bringing some new customers to our brand. We can only thank our fantastic dealer network for getting behind the new model and for helping us to live up to our customers’ expectations.”
