Latest News: Jeep features prominently in this year’s 4x4 Magazine ‘4x4 of the Year 2018 awards’, taking three of the honours’ top prizes. Among the magazine’s Special Awards, Jeep was crowned 4x4 Manufacturer of the Year and Jeep Wrangler scooped the Off-Road Award. Meanwhile Jeep Renegade was named Best Small SUV in the honours’ Class Awards. With the new Jeep Compass due on sale here in February and new Wrangler due later in 2018, it is going to be another important year for Jeep. 4x4 Magazine’s panel of experts recognised the company’s achievements in their awards. “The Wrangler will continue to be the dedicated off-road machine a brand like Jeep needs if it is to remain credible – which it clearly is,” said Alan Kidd, editor, 4x4 Magazine. “The arrival of the new Compass strengthens the company’s position still further. Jeep is absolutely getting it right.” On Wrangler’s Off-Road Award, the panel of experts said: “When a vehicle is still capable of winning awards when its replacement is already being built, that’s an indication of how far ahead it is. This Wrangler is more than 10 years old, yet demand is greater than ever and used ones are going up, not down, in value. More than ever, it’s the definitive off-roader.” And commenting on Renegade’s Small SUV win, they said: “Last year’s overall champion is still a winning proposition in its own highly competitive corner of the market. There are more refined options, but the Renegade has plenty of image, plenty of kit – and a set of off-road skills to leave the rest of the class standing still.” “’There’s Only One’ is what we say about Jeep, and millions of people all over the world will testify to that,” says Andrew Tracey, Country Brand Manager, Jeep UK. “So it’s especially good to see a panel of 4x4 experts agreeing that point too and not only recognising two of our models in their awards, but making us their top manufacturer. “With new Compass and Wrangler to come, and constant improvements being made to our entire range of cars, we are looking forward to 2018 and beyond.” The Jeep Wrangler range starts at £36,740 OTR for the 2.8 CRD Sahara. The Jeep Renegade range starts at £18,250 OTR for the 1.6E-TorQ 110hp Sport.

HYUNDAI MOTOR UK IS OFFICIAL CAR PARTNER TO WALES RALLY GB FOR THIRD YEAR RUNNING : 

Hyundai Motor UK is delighted to announce that, for the third successive season, it will partner Britain’s round of the FIA World Rally Championship.

Building on the successful affiliation of the past two years, Hyundai Motor UK has been reappointed as the prestigious event’s ‘Official Car Partner’ – a move that reinforces the company’s growing presence at the forefront of the WRC.

Hyundai Motorsport’s ambitious team returned to the World Rally Championship at the start of 2014 and made an immediate impact by winning in Germany. Stepping up its challenge, a second-generation i20 WRC was introduced at the start of this season and has already proved to be a winner with a stirring victory in Argentina.

The partnership between Wales Rally GB and Hyundai Motor UKonce again will see the rally-winning i20 WRC car featuring prominently on all of the 2016 event’s promotional materials including posters, ticketing leaflets and publicity flyers as well as on the walesrallygb.com website and the cover of the official programme.

Hyundai Motor UK will also provide a fleet of 34 liveried vehicles for use on the event (27-30 October) by key members of the organisation team and FIA dignitaries.

“It has been a pleasure to join forces with Hyundai for the past two years and we are delighted the company is extending its role as ‘Official Car Partner’ to Wales Rally GB in 2016,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of Wales Rally GB. “The logistics and demands of staging a major world championship event are enormous, and we couldn’t possibly overcome these challenges without the support of major partners like Hyundai. Its fleet of impressive cars and SUVs have proved absolutely invaluable to the successful organisation and running of Wales Rally GB and will do so again come October.”

The Hyundai Motorsport team enjoyed an encouraging Wales Rally GB debut in 2014 when Thierry Neuville just missed out on a podium with a highly creditable fourth position – a positive result that Dani Sordo replicated in 2015. Moreover, with team-mate Hayden Paddon finishing fifth, there were two Hyundai i20s in the top five.

Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK’s President and CEO, commented: “Rally sport is in Hyundai’s DNA and we are delighted to be supporting Wales Rally GB for the third consecutive year. There couldn’t be a better environment for us to showcase the robustness of our road and rally products than over the tough forest rally routes of north and mid Wales in late October.”

He continued: “Competing in the World Rally Championships allows us to transfer technology and learnings between our competition and showroom models – and this will be even more prevalent as we develop and bring to market our motorsport-inspired high performance sub-brand ‘N’. We hope that through our continuing support of the event, we can not only raise the awareness of our current range but also underline its dynamism to what is always an engaged and enthusiastic audience. The latest i20 WRC has already proven its capabilities when winning in Argentina and, having come so close for the past two years, it would be fantastic to see the Hyundai Motorsport team on the podium here in the UK.”

This year’s exciting rally route – including some significant new elements – will be revealed on Wednesday 1 June. In the meantime, spectators can pre-register their interest for ticket information – and enter a special prize draw – via the official www.walesrallygb.com website.
