It’s always nice to receive the recognition of industry experts. And for Kia, the plaudits keep coming. At the recent Company Car Today 100 Awards, the manufacturer saw the Kia Sorento take home the award for Large SUV of the Year, and the Kia e-Niro scoop the prize for Electric Car of the Year. These titles follow on from a number of other industry accolades which demonstrate the manufacturer’s expertise in creating models that offer wide-ranging appeal.
The Company Car Today 100 Awards represents the publication’s definitive list of the best 100 cars that can meet any business requirement. Across a number of categories, models are judged according to strict criteria including fuel economy, emissions level, company car tax and overall driving experience. With the e-Niro capable of some 282 miles on electric power alone, it’s perhaps no wonder that the model took home top prize in its category.
Similarly as impressive is the Kia Sorento - an SUV that combines remarkable efficiency for its size, executive-class levels of space, and huge amounts of versatility. As a result, it marked highly in all categories to beat competition from a number of other marques.
John Hargreaves, General Manager of Fleet and Remarketing at Kia Motors (UK) Ltd, said: “It’s fantastic to see Kia top not one, but two distinctly competitive categories in this year’s awards. Both the SUV and EV market are continually expanding, which makes the double win even more impressive. The e-Niro has been widely recognised by industry-leading experts and offers a great fleet option for those looking to go greener. Meanwhile, the Sorento has proven to be a popular choice with customers for its combination of reliability and practicality, without sacrificing its stylish design.”
