Hyundai i30 wins Family Car of the Year

Published on:

Hyundai’s new multi award-winning i30 has added another trophy to its cabinet, winning ‘Best Family Car under-$30,000’ in the 2017 Carsales Car of the Year Awards.

Only days after being named ‘Best Small Car’ in the 2017 Drive Car of the Year awards, i30 has again demonstrated its outstanding credentials, this time in a slightly different style of competition measuring driving enjoyment and standard features against ownership statistics. 

The Carsales contest brought contenders together in a closed road driving programme comparing ride and handling, braking and general vehicle dynamics, before putting them through a variety of open road drives with multiple occupants in each car. 

In a contest blending data with expert opinion, all the vehicles were then checked against cold, hard facts, the Carsales judges taking into account ownership and running costs, vehicle depreciation and the level of standard safety features. 

“Our awards are a multi-faceted process and Hyundai’s i30 was a standout, the judges all commenting that it easily blends overall comfort and refinement with handling ability,” Carsales Editor-in-Chief, Mike Sinclair, said. 

“New i30 has really moved the Hyundai brand on to a point where it not only meets but exceeds the small car benchmarks,” he added. 

“We believe the Hyundai i30 sets a new benchmark for the category in its ability to balance comfort and sportiness – no easy task.”
