“Hyundai won this award back in 2010 and it is a testament to its continued progress to win it twice - only the second time any manufacturer has done so. The carmaker continues to grow and we would like to congratulate it on its achievements. Having overtaken many of its more established peers, Hyundai is, undeniably, now an established mainstream brand. Other volume manufacturers take note – Hyundai is a carmaker whose rise will be hard to contain,” says Jeremy Bennett.

“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,” says Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai UK President and CEO.
