LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan. 13, 2017) -
- 4th consecutive What Car? win for the multi award winning city car
- i10 Premium SE also wins "Best buy more than £10,000" in the city car category
- On sale from 12th January with prices starting from £8,495*
The New Hyundai i10 has been awarded What Car?'s Best City Car award for the 4th consecutive year, holding off both a new challenge from the Suzuki Celerio and the established competition from the Skoda Citigo.
Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor said: "We have no hesitation in singling out the i10 as our winner: it's cheap to buy and to run, comfy, and easy to drive in town. But it also has luxuries that you rarely get in this class, plus a five-year warranty. The i10 feels like a class above the rest, with the most room, the smartest interior and the smoothest engine. The i10 is a proper, grown-up car, not just a mere runaround, and that's why it's our favourite city car."
The New i10 1.2 Premium SE also won "Best buy for more than £10,000". Huntingford commented: "we recommend top-spec Premium SE trim, which now gets class-leading infotainment on a 7.0 inch touchscreen, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and a DAB radio. You also get climate control, heated seats and a heated steering wheel - all on a city car. The rest of the i10 remains as appealing as ever."
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK said "Since its launch in 2014, i10 has continually received praise from both industry and buyers alike and has become one of the stalwarts of our range. For 2017, we have introduced New i10 which not only introduces a fresh new look but also brings technology to the segment that is usually only found in the classes above."
New Hyundai i10 Small City Car is available from £8,495* on the road. For more information, please visit www.hyundai.co.uk
* i10 S 1.0-litre on-the-road price of £8,495 includes a customer saving of £755 against a full on the road price of £9,250. Offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn or varied at any time.
