UK car dealers vote for the i10 as ‘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 the Hyundai i10’s looks, build quality, value for money and five-year unlimited mileage warranty as key factors – all of which are helping to encourage repeat business.
Hundreds of UK dealers took part in this year’s survey from a variety of franchises, which makes it the most comprehensive of its kind in the industry. With Hyundai being voted for by dealer partners right across the UK it’s truly an impressive win.
Tony Whitehorn, CEO of Hyundai, said: “The New Generation i10 is a hugely significant model for our business […] the i10 has been Hyundai UK’s best-seller since 2009, and New Generation i10 continues this trend.
“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.”
