The Hyundai i40 has received the prestigious Golden Award at this year’s Euro Car Body Conference in Germany. Hyundai collected the top prize which is considered the highest accolade in the industry having never previously entered the contest. The closest competitor and second placed car was the Audi A6 with the Mercedes B-Class taking third place.
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “winning the EuroCarBody Golden Award demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest levels of safety for Hyundai customers. The i40 was recently awarded a maximum five-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash test, and this latest award is further independent evidence that our technology is market-leading. We will continue our efforts for ever-better technology to protect passengers and improve all aspects of vehicle performance.”
The all new Hyundai i40 went on sale at the beginning of the year with prices starting at £17,395. The Hyundai i40 Saloon is offered in the same three main trim levels as the i40 Tourer (Active, Style and Premium) with the choice of two efficient engines, three power outputs and manual or automatic transmission.
