Hyundai scoops top accolades at Honest John awards 2015

Hyundai scooped success at this year's Honest John awards, with two of its cars taking home top awards from the car advice website's annual ceremony.

Now in its fifth consecutive year, Honest John is an online website for motorists seeking advice on buying, selling or maintaining their vehicles. The awards are determined by which cars users search for the most, ensuring that the results are as accurate as possible.

The brand's best-selling, eco-friendly Hyundai i10 won the 'Most Popular City Car' award for the second consecutive year.

Dan Harrison, editor of Honest John, commented on the hatchback's success: "It isn't difficult to understand the i10's outstanding popularity; it is a stylish city car, that's fun to drive, well-made and excellent value for money. What's more, for added peace of mind, it's backed up by Hyundai's dependable five-year warranty."

Meanwhile, Hyundai's Santa FE excelled in the 'Most Popular SUV' category, standing out amongst the other entrants due to it's generous amount of standard equipment.

Harrison continued: "The Hyundai Santa Fe is an outstanding SUV, with excellent interior quality and sleek exterior styling. With so much on offer, it's little surprise to see the Santa Fe become the most popular SUV with the readers of Honest John."

Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, added: "We're extremely proud that our brand is continuing to win so many prestigious awards. This recognition confirms our belief that our vehicles are among the best in the market for providing customers with high-quality, value for money and style."
