The readers of Business Car magazine voted Hyundai's ix35 'best crossover' at this year's annual awards.
Voters praised the ix35's all-round appeal, which combines value for money and versatility with generous specification levels, low running costs and tax efficiency.
Crucially for the fleet market, the ix35's low running costs and tax efficiencies make the car affordable under company car tax rules. Meanwhile, its operational cost efficiencies - impressive residuals, durability and Hyundai's five-year unlimited warranty keep the ix35 the top choice for fleet managers.
Business Car editor, Paul Barker, said: "ix35 illustrates the great leaps Hyundai has made in terms of product appeal, quality, value and design, and shows that the brand is now a mainstream choice. These awards are selected by the readers of Business Car, and they obviously appreciate the talents of a company that is on the up and can match the more established business car players for efficiency, satisfaction and operating costs."
Fleet director of Hyundai Motor UK, Martin Wilson, added: "The ix35 has been a multiple award-winning star car for us, and has proved to be a vital part of our modern, capable range that has revolutionised our fleet customer perception in the UK. This latest award is all the more valuable to us as it comes direct from people who know which cars can cope with being pushed to their limits, and yet still be attractive financially to companies and the end user."
