Hyundai is always proud to receive awards for its products, particularly this one from AutoBild, which places the company ahead of brands many have considered to be at the pinnacle of the industry.
(PRWEB) July 30, 2010
Leading German motoring magazine AutoBild has awarded the Hyundai i30 compact sedan the top honour in its annual AutoBild Quality Report for 2010.
Hyundai edged out local manufacturers BMW and Audi, and eclipsed its rival Toyota to take the prestigious award based on a comprehensive analysis of reliability, long-term quality and customer satisfaction.
AutoBild's annual list evaluates seven key criteria, each weighted equally, including feedback received from 9278 owners, manufacturer warranty provisioning, recall information, and data from a trusted German report based on 7.5 million vehicle inspections.
Considered by many to be one of the most respected industry quality surveys, and endorsed by a fastidious German audience, the award further demonstrates the gains Hyundai has made in consistently improving the quality of its products, service and support available to its owners.
“Hyundai is always proud to receive awards for its products, particularly this one from AutoBild, which places the company ahead of brands many have considered to be at the pinnacle of the industry,” said Tom Ruddenklau, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai New Zealand.
Meanwhile British magazine Motor Trader has named Hyundai as the Car Franchise of the Year in its annual Motor Trader Industry Awards; the i30 hatch took first place in the Driver Power Top 100 survey, a customer satisfaction survey conducted by the best-selling Auto Express magazine.
