Which? names Hyundai as ‘Best Car Manufacturer’
Leading consumer publication Which? presented the prestigious award of Best Car Manufacturer to Hyundai, at its annual ceremony in London today. Hyundai won the accolade over rivals BMW, Mazda, Skoda and Toyota.
Which? is the largest consumer body in the UK with over 650,000 members. It is completely independent and works on behalf of consumers to ensure they get the best possible advice. The Which? awards commend the ‘best of the best’ in products and services.
Owners gave Hyundai 82 per cent in the Which? reliability survey, and 84 per cent in the satisfaction survey. In addition, Which? was also impressed by Hyundai’s competitive prices and its five year unlimited miles warranty deal, while two models – the i20 and i30 – won ‘Best Buy’ status following rigorous Which? tests.
Peter Vicary-Smith, chief executive of Which?, said; “To win a Which? Award, not only must a company offer outstanding products or services, it must also deliver exceptional value and a great customer experience. This is especially important at a time when consumers are really feeling the pinch.
While all those in the shortlist performed well over the past 12 months, Hyundai stood out thanks to its great warranty deal and value for money cars.”
Hyundai’s UK managing director, Tony Whitehorn, said; “We’re delighted to win the award for Best Car Manufacturer. We strive to give our customers the very best value for money by offering quality vehicles that are well equipped, reliable and affordable in terms of price. In addition, our five year, fully transferable, unlimited mileage warranty that comes with all of our vehicles ensures that our customers have total piece of mind.”
He continued to say; “We have an exciting year ahead and will soon launch the all-new i40 Tourer, followed by the 2+1 door coupe Veloster and then the i40 Saloon. Consumers will notice another step change in terms of quality with these new products and we are confident that it will further improve our already competitive product offering.”
