Hyundai scoops highest accolades at Top Gear Awards

OFFENBACH, Germany, Nov. 30, 2021 /CNW/ -- Hyundai Motor has taken highest honours at the Top Gear annual awards 2021, winning Car of the Year with i20 N and being named overall Manufacturer of the Year in recognition of the brand's class leading model line-up.

Hyundai Motor has won Car of the Year with i20 N at the Top Gear annual awards 2021

The i20 N recently triumphed at the Top Gear Speed Week test to claim coveted Performance Car of the Year title from a group of 26 contenders during a series of thorough tests. The judging panel ? comprised of Top Gear's expert editorial team alongside Chris Harris and The STIG ? crowned the i20 N overall winner after a series of gruelling tests against models from some of the most evocative performance car brands in the world.

Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President, Global Chief Marketing Officer at Hyundai Motor Company said: "We are truly honoured to receive two prestigious awards from one of the world's most influential and enjoyable automotive publications, especially at a time when Hyundai's global brand has never been stronger. We know the team at Top Gear is very demanding and have exacting standards, so winning the Car of the Year award for i20 N is certainly an achievement. The Manufacture of the Year is a testament to the direction that Hyundai is committed to as we transform into a smart mobility solutions provider. Everyone at Hyundai can be proud of this recognition."

On i20 N winning the overall Car of the Year Jack Rix, Editor of Top Gear Magazine, said: "We already knew how brilliant the i20 N was after it brushed aside 25 other competitors at our recent Speed Week test to claim our coveted Performance Car of the Year title. But you don't win the top prize in our annual Awards without proving your all-round brilliance. Having shone on British racetracks and B-roads, we decided to throw it in at the deep end to prove its greatness, with an adventure across the Australian outback. What we discovered was a low-slung hot hatch that remained both comfortable and completely unflustered across oppressively large distances, and on washboard road surfaces. A little Hyundai hatchback that did so well, so far out of its comfort zone, that it was impossible to do anything but make it our overall Car of the Year."
