The multiple award winning Hyundai i10 has added another string to its bow and scooped up “Training Car of the Year 2015” from driver training experts, the Driving Instructors Association. The compact city car beat off stiff competition from models in the segment above to claim the prestigious title. The supermini was praised for its high quality interior, generous equipment levels and affordability – both the purchase and to run.
DIA chief executive Carly Brookfield said: “Congratulations to Hyundai for winning the Top Car: Training Car of the Year 2015. As professional drivers, the car chosen is of vital importance to their work – not just for driving but also as a business asset.”
Simon Miller, editor of Driving Instructor magazine commented: “Although this may be a surprising choice to some, the excellent value of the Hyundai, coupled with its handling and ride, makes it a sensible buy from a business perspective.”
President and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, Tony Whitehorn, commenting on the Award said “Thanks to its low running costs, it’s no surprise that the Hyundai i10 is so popular among driving instructors. Combined with its low insurance rating, i10 also makes an incredibly affordable first car once the driving test has been passed!”
Last year, Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing was filmed whilst learning to drive in a New Generation Hyundai i10.
The New Generation Hyundai i10 went on sale in January 2014 and since its launch, recognition from all corners off the automotive industry has grown and grown, specifically focusing on its unbeatable value, driveability and stylish design. It has recently been awarded WhatCar? magazine’s “Car of the Year – Best City Car” for the second year in a row.
Hyundai have recently announced the addition of Premium SE to the model range, which will further increase its appeal as a cost effective yet feature packed city car, with heated seats, a heated steering wheel and a panoramic sunroof.
