Following a busy period of sales success and important new product launches, Birchwood and Washington Kia have yet more to celebrate as What Car? Magazine announce the winners of their tightly contested and intrinsically judged 2018 Used Car Awards.
The current generation Cee’d family hatchback was awarded ‘Best Used Family Car’ by the What Car? judges, in the 4-6 year category. The Cee’d impressed with its levels of standard equipment, incredible value for money, styling and period of remaining manufacturer’s warranty.
The Sorento, also in its latest generation, brought home the highly respected award of ‘Best Used Large SUV’ in the age range of 1-3 years old. Bearing in mind how competitive this segment of the market is, the Sorento had to shine through to the judges against the competition. Backing up the manufacturer’s warranty for the win were the premium touches, high tech features, excellent comfort, remarkable practicality and large amount of useable space. And of course both models are available at Birchwood and Washington Kia.
That wasn’t it for Kia wins, alongside the awards for Cee’d and Sorento was a ‘Highly Commended’ recognition in the ‘Best Used Car Scheme’ category. Kia’s Approved Used Car programme has sold over 50,000 units since 2010 and features benefits such as seven year warranty top up, seven day drive away insurance, sixty day exchange plan, one year European roadside assistance, first year MOT test cover, perfect mechanical condition promise and much more.
It’s great to be part of a company that has received these respected awards and recognition. Everyone is also very pleased that our Approved Used Car programme was highly commended, this recognition is a good reminder to all that our used car offering is very competitive and successful.
