The Hyundai i20 has been named ‘Used Car of the Year’ at the FirstCar awards, having also picked up the ‘Used Car of the Year up to £10,000’ award.
The Hyundai i20 makes a great used buy for any new driver. It's safe, easy to drive and very practical. Independent reliability data from Warranty Direct shows how dependable Hyundais are. What's more, anyone buying an i20 that's under five years old will still benefit from the balance of the original warranty. That's a big plus for first-time buyers looking to avoid any unexpected bills.

David Motton editor of FirstCar

The sophisticated and refined i20 is available with a host of exciting features, including parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, touchscreen navigation and a range of advanced petrol engines. The three-cylinder turbocharged 1.0 T-GDi is capable of 49.6mpg, producing 100hp.

The Hyundai brand has been built upon excellent reliability and astonishing value for money, and in that sense the i20 really is the perfect representation of the brand. Although Hyundai has now grown to include hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, ‘N’ performance models and a range of fully electric models, we are also committed to offering cars like the i20; affordable, practical, fun and perfect for first-time drivers.

Michael Stewart Fleet Director

The FirstCar Awards are the latest used car accolades for Hyundai, with the Hyundai IONIQ named 'Best Used Green Car’ and the Hyundai i10 named ‘Best Used City Car for Under £9,000 at the recent What Car? Used Car Awards.
