Hyundai's all-new Tucson has been recognised as the ‘Best Mainstream Small 4x4’ in BusinessCar’s annual awards. Uniquely, the awards are determined by the fleet industry itself, with the Tucson’s striking design, cost-efficiency and practicality securing the top spot for Hyundai.
Paul Barker, Editor at BusinessCar, said: “Hyundai’s continued upward progress means it is now an established fleet player, and the new Tucson is the most impressive product the company has yet launched into the UK fleet sector. Good looking, practical and cost-efficient, it clearly ticks all the boxes for fleet drivers looking for something in this sector.”
The All-New Tucson represents a major leap forward for Hyundai in the mid-size SUV segment and quickly became Hyundai’s fastest-selling car following its launch in early September last year. Designed to be class-leading in several key areas, the Tucson offers best-in-class whole life costs, residual values and boot space. In addition, the Tucson adds enhanced levels of standard equipment boosting comfort, convenience and safety across the range. Fuel efficiency as high as 61.7 mpg and CO2 emissions from just 119 g/km ensure a good BiK value and low running costs for fleets.
Martin Wilson, Fleet Director, Hyundai Motor UK Ltd said: “The All-New Tucson has had an outstanding reception from our customers since its introduction in September last year. Hyundai Motor UK works hard to ensure that the needs of every fleet customer are identified and met, so with the Tucson a lot of effort went into ensuring that it offered class-leading residuals, for example. To be acknowledged by BusinessCar in this competitive and growing segment is testament to Hyundai’s focus and underlines the Tucson’s role as a key player in our sustained fleet growth into 2016 and beyond.”
The BusinessCar Awards are unique in that they are the only awards decided by the fleet industry itself, with the readers of the magazine and BusinessCar.co.uk voting for the products, services and companies that best support their businesses. Rather than being decided by a panel of experts, the BusinessCar Award winners are chosen by the people relying on them to help efficiently run their businesses on a daily basis.
