The new Hyundai i10 has been voted the best car of the year by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers.
It scooped the headline Scottish Car of the Year award ahead of contenders such as the Jaguar F-Type, Mazda3 and Citroen Grand C4 Picasso after winning the Best Small Car category at the annual Scottish Car of the Year Awards.
Alisdair Suttie, president of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers, said: “The fact that Hyundai i10 not only won its category but also the overall Scottish Car of the Year accolade – ahead of many significantly more expensive newcomers – is a true testament to this car’s strengths.
"Hyundai i10 is perfectly placed to appeal to a Scottish audience, particularly for private buyers parting with their own cash, showing that drivers no longer need to make sacrifices when downsizing.”
Hyundai has sold more than 2,200 examples of the new i10 in Scotland since the car was launched in January, making it the Korean brand's biggest selling model in Scotland in 2014.
