The Hyundai i30 has shot straight to number one in the Driver Power Top 100 to be named the most satisfying car to own. The Driver Power survey was completed by 23,000 drivers and compiled by Auto Express one of the UK’s best selling motoring magazines.
The Hyundai i30 was designed specifically to raise the profile of Hyundai in the big European markets and it’s a significant step in the right direction. All Hyundai models get 5-speed manual transmission except the 2.0-litre which has a 6-speed box and a four-speed automatic which is available with the 1.6-litre engines in the Premium trim level. The Hyundai i30 range starts at £12,300 and includes a five-door hatchback and estate variants. Engines include an advanced turbodiesel offering economy of more than 60 mpg and emissions.
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.”
