Hyundai tops Which? survey lists

Hyundai has topped three out of five categories in the 2013 Which? Car Survey.

The Korean manufacturer's i10, ix20 and ix35 models were ranked at the top of their class in terms of cost price, running costs and standard equipment. The three models range between insurance group seven and insurance group 22.

Tony Whitehorn, CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, said that the awards reflected the brand's dedication to providing value to customers. He added that he was delighted that readers and customers held the manufacturer in such high regard.

"With the current economic situation, people are looking for cars that are affordable to purchase and run, but which are also desirable both inside and out," Richard Headland, acting editor of Which? magazine said.

The Which? Car Survey questioned 39,292 motorists regarding the performance of their cars in the past year based on a number of different categories.

Mr Headland added that Hyundai stood out in the survey as the brand that offered the best overall package for customers.
