Award-winning motor dealership prepares to receive award-winning car

Auto Express' reigning Garage of the Year is preparing to welcome the magazine's Car of the Year to its Swindon showroom. 
Hyundai's all-electric Ioniq 5 has been named Car of the Year at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2021 – and is heading to Pebley Beach – holder of Auto Express' Garage of the Year title. 
Besides being crowned the best car overall, the Ioniq 5 also won the awards for Mid-Size Company Car, Premium Electric Car, and Best Design.
Two other Hyundai models won categories, with the Hyundai Tucson being named Best Mid-Size SUV and the sporty Hyundai i20N carrying off the Hot Hatchback trophy.
Every car on sale in the UK is eligible for the annual Auto Express New Car Awards, which were first held in 1993. 
The awards are judged by Auto Express’ highly experienced panel of road testers, chaired by the editor-in-chief, Steve Fowler.
“When we first saw the Concept 45 that previewed the Ioniq 5, we knew the production car would be something special,” commented Steve.
“The Ioniq 5 delivers on styling, quality, driver appeal and quality. Hyundai has already proven to be a technology leader in the Electric Vehicle space, and the Ioniq 5 takes it one step further. It’s a brilliant car.”
The futuristic-looking Hyundai Ioniq 5 is based upon Hyundai’s breakthrough Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which delivers faster charging, increased driving range, superior handling and more interior space.
In addition to revolutionising sustainable mobility, the Ioniq 5 offers an interior that provides a whole new in-car experience – redefining living space and moving space. Environmentally friendly materials, such as eco-processed leather and recycled yarn, are used extensively in the Ioniq 5.
Starting from £36,995 and offered with a range of electric powertrains and two- and four-wheel drive configurations, the Ioniq 5 is able to charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes, accelerate from 0-62mph in as little as 5.2 seconds and travel up to 298 miles on a single charge.
The first batch of Ioniq 5s have arrived in the UK, having completed their sea journey from Hyundai's car plant in Korea - 12,000 nautical miles away. 
Dominic Threlfall, managing director of Pebley Beach, said: “For the Ioniq 5 to be named Car of the Year alongside three other category wins shows just how far Hyundai has come on its pioneering sustainable mobility journey. 
"The Ioniq 5 really is a world-beating car – and we can't wait for our customers to be able to take a look."

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
