Hyundai scores double win at Honest John Awards

Hyundai has picked up a fantastic two awards to add to its growing trophy cabinet last night at the annual Honest John Awards.

The manufacturer’s best-selling i10 city car was crowned the Most Popular City Car by users of the Honest John website, while the Santa Fe was named the winner in the Most Popular SUV category.

Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai president and CEO, said: “We’re extremely proud that our brand is continuing to win so many prestigious awards, including our recent wins from HonestJohn.co.uk.

“This recognition confirms our belief that our vehicles are among the best in the market for providing customers with high-quality, value for money and style.”

Now in their fifth year running, the Honest John Awards choose their winners based on the opinions of the best experts of all, the website users and drivers who own the cars.

Recognising and rewarding models that are the most searched for on the site by the public, the awards give accolades to those models which generate the most interest.

Dan Harrison, Honest John editor, said: “The Hyundai i10 has retained the top small hatch spot for 2015, winning the ‘Most Popular City Car’ for the second consecutive year.

“It isn’t difficult to understand the i10’s outstanding popularity; it is a stylish city car, that’s fun to drive, well-made and excellent value for money. What’s more, for added peace of mind, it’s backed up by Hyundai’s dependable five-year warranty.”

He added: “Meanwhile, the Hyundai Santa Fe is an outstanding SUV, with excellent interior quality and sleek exterior styling. With so much on offer, it’s little surprise to see the Santa Fe become the most popular SUV with the readers of HonestJohn.co.uk.”

These awards mark the latest in an incredibly successful year for the Korean brand, after it picked up a number of awards for its model range, with the i10 in particular garnering critical acclaim.

Having accumulated an enviable number of accolades since the latest version was released at the start of this year, the Hyundai i10 was also named one of the top three cars to own this year by an Auto Express survey.

Collecting data from more than 60,000 real-world drivers, the survey quizzed owners on which car they drive and how satisfied they were with it overall.

Incredibly, the i10 placed third in the overall ratings with a total satisfaction score of 93.59 per cent, beating off competition from high-performance luxury cars and becoming one of the best cars to buy in 2015.
