2014 Hyundai i10 city car wins Top Gear ‘Bargain of the Year’ award

We were blown away by the little 2014 Hyundai i10 city car when we drove it back on the launch in October – and now it seems our first impressions have been proved correct.

The Hyundai i10 has just bagged Top Gear’s ‘Bargain of the Year’ award.

The coveted prize was awarded to the new, more grown-up Hyundai i10 thanks to the car’s “ability to provide customers with small-car buying and running costs without any of the associated compromises to refinement, comfort and build quality.”

We couldn’t have put I better ourselves.

According to Piers Ward, road test editor at BBC Top Gear magazine:

“Customers might want luxuries and gadgets, but they expect refinement. The i10 absolutely delivers on the value-for-money premise.

“It is definitely not a car with the build quality of a biscuit tin. The fit and finish is excellent, it looks great and is comfortable and spacious – for these reasons it stood out as a worthy winner.”

As an official Hyundai dealer, we’re obviously delighted by the news and can’t wait to share the new car with you, our T W White & Sons customers, when the new 2014 Hyundai i10 arrives in showrooms next year.

Our sentiments echo that of president and chief executive officer, Hyundai Motor UK, Tony Whitehorn:

“We are absolutely delighted that the New Generation i10 has been recognised by Top Gear magazine.

“The i10 builds on the success of its predecessor with a more expressive and stylish package that majors on refinement, quality, safety, generous specification and overall true value too. It’s no longer just a city car, it’s cut from the class above.”

The 2014 Hyundai i10 city car goes on sale in the UK in January next year, so we’ll have something to kick the New Year off with a bang.
