All-New KONA crowned Car of the Year at Auto Express New Car Awards

Hyundai’s All-New KONA is celebrating significant success already, having been crowned Car of the Year at the Auto Express New Car Awards, as well as Small SUV of the Year and Small Company Car of the Year.

The awards were handed out at a ceremony at London’s Barbican Conservatory on what proved to be a dominant evening for Hyundai, with the All-New KONA’s impressive haul backed up by further recognition for the Hyundai TUCSON as Mid-size SUV of the Year and the New Hyundai i10 as City Car of the Year.

Auto Express is one of the UK’s leading car news and reviews titles both in print and online, and its New Car Awards are long established, having been launched in 1993. The awards are judged by an experienced team of road testers, chaired by Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler, and seek to inform buyers of the best cars on the market across a variety of sectors.

First deliveries of the All-New KONA are scheduled this month. Auto Express’s experts were won over by the All-New KONA’s long list of attributes, including its dynamic design, cutting-edge technology, spacious interior and excellent driving experience, plus the exceptional choice it affords both private buyers and those seeking a company car, with internal combustion engine (ICE), hybrid electric (HEV) and all-electric versions (EV) available.

The win marks the second time in three years a Hyundai has clinched the top award, following the IONIQ 5’s victory in 2021.

The winning theme continued with the Hyundai TUCSON collecting the best Mid-size SUV award for the third year running, and the New Hyundai i10, named City Car of the Year.

The IONIQ6 was also lauded earlier this year at the 2023 World Car Awards, to find out more click here.
