For the second time in 3 years, Hyundai has won the award of ‘Car Maker of the Year’ at the annual AM magazine ceremony. Editor of the magazine Jeremy Bennett was all praise for brand Hyundai. According to Bennett, the auto maker within a short span of time has established its strong presence in the UK car market.
Hyundai has earned a solid reputation for delivering excellent quality cars and has also reported towering sales in the fourth quarter of 2011. It is a known fact that Hyundai has outshined other manufacturers of mainstream models with their affordable prices and aggressive sales, marketing and advertising strategies.
In total, this is Hyundai’s 5th award in 3 years in the UK. The stunning i40 has done exceedingly well in Europe and UK. Hyundai has got quite a few surprises lined up for car enthusiasts in 2012. With demand for its line of cars being exceedingly high in Europe, Hyundai has stepped up its unit production in various facilities.
Speaking about the new award, Mr Tony Whitehorn, CEO & President, Hyundai UK, said: “Receiving this award is a testament to how rapidly we have progressed as a manufacturer and the positive strides we have made in the UK car industry. The launch of new and exciting products such as i40, Veloster and the New Generation i30 has signalled a step-change in terms of the quality of our products and there’s more exciting products still to come in the remainder of 2012. This is our fifth industry award in just three years having been named as Car Franchise of the Year in 2010 and 2011 in the Motor Trader Awards as well as Best Car Manufacturer in last year’s Which? Awards. This is a highly prestigious award and it is due to the hard work and professionalism of our team here in the UK and to our strong dealer network.”
