Hyundai enjoys a big success at the 2022 Carbuyer Best Car Awards winning six accolades overall, including the esteemed ‘Car of the Year’ award for the all-new Hyundai TUCSON SUV.
The TUCSON was also crowned ‘Best Family Car’ and ‘Best Hybrid Car’. Additionally, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 was titled the ‘Best Company Car’ and ‘Best Family Electric Car’, whilst the Hyundai i20N was honoured as the ‘Best Hot Hatchback.’
Each model was judged on various factors against market rivals, including cost, performance, comfort, safety and practicality, with winners selected by Carbuyer’s team of experts after rigorous testing.
Richard Ingram, Editor of Carbuyer.co.uk, commented: “A multiple award winner, the Hyundai TUCSON is both Carbuyer’s Best Family Car as well as our Best Hybrid Car for 2022. Lovely to drive, practical and easy to live with, it’s also cheap to run thanks to its hybrid powertrains.”
“In fact, the new Tucson is quite simply the best new car we’ve driven all year – making it the natural winner of Carbuyer’s overall Car of the Year.”
Featuring a sophisticated yet rugged exterior, the Hyundai Tucson SUV is offered in three powertrains, Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and Petrol with Mild Hybrid.
Performance is seamlessly integrated with efficiency, and each TUCSON is equipped with advanced safety features.
These safety features include Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA) Car, Pedestrian and Cycle and Multi Collision Braking (MCA) as standard.
The futuristic-looking Hyundai IONIQ 5 offers an interior that provides a whole new in-car experience, redefining living and moving space.
Richard Ingram commented: “We’ve seen the electric car game move on significantly over the past 12 months, and the IONIQ 5 is proof of just how far the market has come.”
“Futuristic not only in the way it looks, its long range and ultra-rapid charging put it at the cutting-edge, while its spacious cabin and generous kit list make it a brilliant car to live with.”
The IONIQ 5 is offered with a range of electric powertrains and two- and four-wheel drive configurations and can charge from 10%-80% in just 18 minutes, accelerate from 0-62mph in as little as 5.2 seconds and travel up to 298 miles on a single charge.
Richard Ingram commented: “Hyundai has turned the hot hatch market on its head – first with the i30 N and more recently with the smaller but just as riotous i20 N. Frenetic, agile and quick, the compact Hyundai will keep up with most sports cars but with the added benefit of five doors and a big boot.”
The Hyundai i20N delivers stunning performance and agile handling, whilst connected and safety technologies enhance every journey.
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director of Hyundai Motor UK, commented: “We are delighted that the Hyundai TUCSON has been presented with the coveted ‘Car of the Year’ award by the panel of experts at Carbuyer.”
“This endorsement is further validation that the latest generation TUCSON remains one of the best SUVs in the UK market, as well as the best hybrid available. We are also thrilled to see the wider Hyundai range recognised across a number of prestigious honours. IONIQ 5 continues to set the standard for electric mobility, whilst the i20 N is recognised as the best hot hatchback yet again.”
