We’re delighted to announce that Hyundai has scooped six major accolades at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2021!

The first-ever i20N was awarded ‘Hot Hatch of the Year’.

The pure driving appeal of Hyundai’s motorsport-inspired i20N was left in little doubt, following its triumph in the Hot Hatchback category against some incredibly tough opposition. “Hyundai’s N badge is fast becoming the must-have accessory for anyone who loves to drive,” commented Auto Express. “The new i20N is all about fun – this is a hot hatch that will put a smile on your face every time. We love the snappy acceleration and secure handling that gives it an old-school hot hatch feel, but brought bang up to date with Hyundai technology and quality.”

Ashley Andrew, Managing Director of Hyundai Motor UK, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the six awards bestowed by Auto Express. For the IONIQ 5 to be named Car of the Year alongside 3 other category wins shows just how far Hyundai has come on its pioneering sustainable mobility journey. With the IONIQ 5, we set out to create one of the world’s best electric cars – nothing less. The reaction from our customers, and now from the uncompromising critics at Auto Express, shows we have delivered an industry-beating product.”

“Our i20N has also triumphed over the very best rivals in the business by winning the coveted Auto Express “Hot Hatchback” trophy. And it is especially gratifying to have Auto Express’s road testers praise the i20N’s exceptional fun factor, pure driving feel, advanced technology and exemplary quality, values which form the very essence of Hyundai’s performance N brand.”
