Hyundai has scooped the highest accolades at the Top Gear Awards 2021, winning overall Manufacturer of the Year alongside the i20N being named Car of the Year.
The i20N has recently triumphed over 26 contenders at the Top Gear Speed Week test to claim the Car of the Year title.
The judging panel consisted of Top Gear’s expert editorial team alongside Chris Harris and The STIG and they crowned the i20N the overall winner after a series of thorough tests.
The team was won over by a combination of the i20N’s thrilling handling and rounded abilities.
Jack Rix, Editor of Top Gear Magazine, commented: “We already knew how brilliant the i20N was after it brushed aside 25 other competitors at our recent Speed Week test to claim our coveted Performance Car of the Year title. But you don't win the top prize in our annual Awards without proving your all-round brilliance...”
Additionally, Top Gear have recognised the brilliance across the Hyundai model range, honouring the brand with the esteemed Manufacturer of the Year award.
From the i20N to the all-new battery-electric IONIQ 5, Hyundai has launched a variety of new models across different categories throughout 2021.
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK, commented:” The Top Gear Awards recognise the best the industry has to offer. I’m delighted to see Hyundai recognised as Industry leader for its product with i20 N lining up against genuine icons of the car world and toppling all of them to take overall Car of the Year.”
“To then go on and take Manufacturer of the Year is testament to the design innovation and technical prowess built into our entire range. Hyundai offer the most diverse range in the industry and has cemented itself as a pioneer in zero-emission mobility, including its fully-electric Kona Electric and game changing IONIQ 5.”
