Top Gear Magazine’s Manufacturer of the Year – Hyundai

Carbuyer’s Best Company Car – Hyundai Ioniq
As the government continues to crack down on vehicle emissions Hyundai has carved out a unique position at the fore of the alternative fuel market. With hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric powertrains available the Ioniq offers a solution to every necessity. When you combine the minimal running costs with its practicality, comfort and driveability it is easy to see why many are ditching more obvious company saloons in favour of the Ioniq.

Peugeot has made a real success of its SUV offerings and shown that they are not afraid to do things differently. The sporty purposeful exterior of the 3008 is matched by a modern and dynamic interior. Plus the drive quality is equally impressive thanks to a good engine range and a high ride height that ensures a commanding view of the road.
Best Large Family Car – Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport

This large family vehicle has plenty of space while the addition of a comprehensive range of safety features ensure it really does tick all the boxes when it comes to a great family vehicle.
