The Hyundai i40 Tourer is Scotland’s ‘Best Estate Car’, according to the judges of the 2011 Scottish Car of the Year awards.

The stylish new entry to the medium segment impressed the motoring expert judges from the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) during testing and fought off competition from the Peugeot 508 SW, Ford Focus Estate, Vauxhall Astra Sport Tourer and BMW 5 Series Touring to be crowned the winner.

“Our winner has the space and versatility to seal the deal for practicality, but this estate has a whole lot more to offer,” said John Murdoch, President of the ASMW. “Not least, its elegant looks and stylish interior, but we’re also big fans of the way it drives, its economical engines and very competitive prices. Oh, and did we mention it’s also one of the most practical estates you can buy?!”

The i40 Tourer wasn’t the only Hyundai praised by the judges, the ix20 – Hyundai’s compact MPV for the European Market – also impressed the ASMW coming runner up in the Best Small Car category, competing with the Audi A1, Nissan Juke, Nissan Micra and Toyota Yaris.

“We are absolutely delighted that the i40 Tourer has won this accolade,” said Oliver Mann, Director of Marketing, Hyundai Motor Company Australia. “This is the first award for the i40 Tourer which showcases Hyundai philosophy of ‘Modern Premium’ through stylish design, practicality, economy and value for money.”

Priced from $32,490, the Hyundai i40 Tourer is on-sale now at Hyundai dealerships throughout the Australia. For more information, or to book a test drive, visit your local Hyundai dealership or visit –
