Hyundai Win Big at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2021

Hyundai picked up six trophies at the 2021 Auto Express New Car Awards, with the new all-electric IONIQ 5 taking home the highly coveted Car of the Year title.

The IONIQ 5 also took the top prize in the Mid-Size Company Car, Premium Electric Car and Design categories.

Hyundai’s TUCSON won best ‘Mid-Size SUV’ and the i20N triumphed in the fiercely contested ‘Hot Hatchback' category.

The annual Auto Express New Car Awards are judged by a highly experienced panel of road testers, and every car on sale in the UK is eligible.

The IONIQ 5 is a futuristic looking car and the first to be built on Hyundai’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which delivers faster charging, increased driving range and superior handling. In addition to this revolutionary technology, the IONIQ 5 offers an interior which redefines living space and moving space, with reclining chairs and a flat floor – allowing levels of comfort never seen before in this segment.

The IONIQ 5 was also crowned winner in the Design category. It’s exterior evokes the daring attitude of the Pony, Hyundai's first ever production car, coupled with sleek and high-tech design elements to give an ultra-modern feel. 

Offered in a number of electric powertrains, the IONIQ 5 is able to charge from 10 – 80% in just 18 minutes, accelerate from 0-62mph in just 5.2 seconds and has a range of 298 miles from a single charge.
