The i30 in the Driver Power Top100 is to be named the most satisfying car to own by the general public.
Completed by over 23,000 drivers, the i30 beat all other cars and Hyundai as a brand made the biggest overall leap up the charts, jumping 12 places to finish sixth.
Auto Express editor-in-chief David Johns said: “Congratulations to Hyundai. This is a huge breakthrough for the brand. Over the years, owners have told us how reliable their cars are and what good value they are too. But this is the final proof that they can now match that with real all-round satisfaction.”
Hyundai UK’s managing director Tony Whitehorn said: “Thousands of new buyers have defected to Hyundai recently and they are genuinely surprised at the quality of the cars. Owners are recommending Hyundai to their friends and neighbours and it is through this word-of-mouth recommendation that the brand is becoming so popular so quickly.”
