Hyundai’s win in three major categories of this year’s Australia’s Best Cars Awards bring the number of wins by Hyundai in the award’s 17 year history to an impressive 21.

Hyundai’s Accent Active won Australia’s Best Light Car award, i30 Series II Active petrol named Australia’s Best Small Car under $35,000 and the ground-breaking and luxurious Genesis is Australia’s Best Large Car under $70,000.

Hyundai AWD SUV models also featured prominently in this year’s Australia’s Best Cars awards.

All-new Tucson Elite and Santa Fe Series II Highlander CRDi were Top 3 contenders in the two biggest AWD SUV categories (under $50k and $50k $65k classes, respectively).

Hyundai’s award-winning models and contenders were applauded for their impressive achievements measured against the Australia’s Best Cars awards three major criteria: Value for money, Design and function, and On-the-road performance.

“We’re extremely proud that our cars have again starred in Australia’s largest new-car assessment and awards program,” Hyundai Motor Company Australia chief executive, Charlie Kim said.

“Australia’s Best Cars awards are important to us – and especially important to our customers – because they embrace real-world car ownership values.

“I believe Hyundai’s proud record in these important awards – including our strong results in this year’s Australia’s Best Cars awards – sends a clear message to car buyers about the impeccable real-world credentials of our cars.”

Australia’s largest new-car assessment and awards programme, Australia’s Best Cars awards determines winners in 15 classes after rigorous testing by judges representing Australia’s 7.4 million auto club members.

This year’s win by i30 brings the ever-evolving model’s Australia’s Best Cars awards tally to six, including successive wins in 2008, ‘09, and ‘10 (also 2013 and now, with i30 Series II, 2015).

Hyundai’s i30 also is a consistent Australian market Top-3 seller and was Australia’s best-selling vehicle overall in June and September last year.
