- UK car owners vote IONIQ 5 as Most Loved Car
- IONIQ 6 adds the Erin Baker Award to run of accolades
Hyundai has scooped two prestigious accolades during this year’s Auto Trader New Car Awards, with IONIQ 5 named the UK’s Most Loved Car and IONIQ 6 clinching the Erin Baker Award.
The annual awards, now in their seventh year, aim to recognise brands and cars which are achieving excellence in the eyes of the people whose opinion matter the most: car owners. The 2023 Auto Trader New Car Awards saw over 220,000 UK car owners share their thoughts and opinions (obtained from real-world experience) to determine 20 of this year’s 23 winners.
The methodology ensures that the awards are a true reflection of what UK consumers think of their car and what they want from it, with the IONIQ 5’s compelling credentials sealing its latest honour as the UK’s Most Loved Car.
Additionally, the IONIQ 6’s run of awards increases with Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, Erin Baker, selecting the electrified streamliner as the winner of the Erin Baker Award, recognising the sustainable credentials and striking design of IONIQ 6.
It’s tough to follow in the footsteps of the IONIQ 5, but Hyundai has pulled it off with the 6 – a crazy-looking car with incredible boot space, brilliant reliability, decent electric range, competitive pricing and cool tech. Fantastic work, Hyundai!
With the Auto Trader new car awards acting as a true reflection of what UK car owners think, we are delighted to see our growing IONIQ range recognised for sophisticated styling and long-distance EV performance. It is a huge endorsement for our brand as we strive to decarbonise road transport with captivating models such as IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6.
