Kia received a number of awards in 2015 for its cars. Among the awards bestowed upon Kia this year are:
This award was the second successive year that Kia has won an award in recognition of using real people’s views and opinions to market their cars.
Their Re-View Mirror campaign on YouTube recognised the role of mums in making decisions when buying new family cars, flipping the perceived wisdom and macho image of the car industry on its head. The campaign featured the flexible and spacious seven-seater Kia Carens, named Best MPV at the 2013 Scottish Car of the Year Awards.

Carbuyer.co.uk: Best Used Car - The Cee’d was named Best Used Car by Carbuyer. Editor Stuart Milne explains why: “The Kia Cee'd is more than a match for the most upmarket of brands in terms of quality, but it's the reassuring seven-year warranty that really sets it apart. The warranty, coupled with Kia's reputation for reliability, makes it a brilliant and worry-free used car choice.”
Carbuyer’s judging approach differs from some notable others in that it prioritises the ownership factors that matter most: practicality, reliability, running costs, style and equipment. The Cee’d came out on top with a remarkable score of 4.6/5 in the road test.
WhatCar?: Car of the Year - This year the Kia Cee'd Sportswagon may not have won but was commended for its brilliant fuel efficiency and the high spec of equipment. it was also named the 'Best-Buy' estate car under £18,000.
The Cee'd Sportswagon was against stiff competition this year and still managed to impress the judges. The practicality, low maintenance costs, low insurance group and safety attributes has really helped to make this car as popular as it is.
