UK Shopper Wins a Free Car, a Hyundai Veloster

Have you ever found yourself dreaming what car you’d want to get for free from your favorite carmaker. That carmaker is probably more along the lines of... BMW or Mercedes. But there’s nothing wrong with a good Hyundai now and again, especially if it’s absolutely free.

Pauline Ashworth, 32 years old from Wigan, United Kingdom, is going to have a very special holiday. That’s because she’s now the proud owner of a brand new Hyundai Veloster 1+2 door coupe worth £18,000.

She won the car after she entered the Hyundai competition on a visit to the brand’s promotional stand in Westfield Stratford City shopping centre, London.

Here’s how she reacted when she found out she’d won a 140 PS sporty coupe that also does 43.5 mpg combined: “I just couldn’t believe it when I got the first e-mail telling me I’d won. I can't get over how lucky I am to be the winner when I think of all the thousands of people that must have entered the competition. It all became a reality when the transporter arrived to deliver the car.”

“I love how it’s so new – you don’t see that many on the road yet and there are no other cars like it. I've had a few strangers admiring its looks and my family and friends adore it. I'm still getting used to the features of the car, but the touchscreen media centre is a favourite. To be honest, I'm really enjoying driving it and looking at it, too!” she added.
