Hyundai Motor scores big wins at the Red Dot Design Awards

Hyundai Motor has received further recognition for its evolving design philosophy, receiving prestigious Red Dot Awards for outstanding design for the fourth year in a row. Hyundai’s Next Generation i30 and Genesis G80 Sport were all recognised by the internationally-renowned awards programme, in the ‘Product and Transportation Design’ category.

The Next Generation i30 received an ‘Honourable Mention’ for its highly competitive design. The new Genesis G80 Sport was awarded the Red Dot title for outstanding design, making it the second time that Genesis has received recognition in the international Red Dot Design Award competition following its success in 2014.

The Next Generation i30 receives its third international accolade following the PIN UP Design Awards and 2017 iF Design Awards, at which judges praised its precise, refined lines that create a timeless and confident appearance.

Along with iF Design Awards and IDEA Design Awards, the Red Dot Awards represents the three most prestigious international design awards. Organised by Design Zentrum Nordheim Westfalen, the organisation reviews compelling design works in a wide range of categories in various fields, including design innovation, to determine each year’s exemplar designs.

This year, the Red Dot jury of 21 international design experts, professors and journalists evaluated over 5,000 product design works from over 50 different countries, which were submitted to compete for the prestigious award. It is the fourth consecutive year Hyundai Motor has featured in these awards, following recognition for the i10 and Genesis in 2014, i20 and Sonata in 2015, and IONIQ in 2016, further confirming Hyundai’s design competence.

Hyundai has quickly risen to become the fifth largest global manufacturer of automobiles in recent years. This recognition by Red Dot Awards is further confirmation of the group’s continued high quality designs.
