KIA e-NIRO WINS NORTHERN GROUP CAR OF THE YEAR 2019

KIA e-NIRO WINS NORTHERN GROUP CAR OF THE YEAR 2019

KIA e-NIRO WINS NORTHERN GROUP CAR OF THE YEAR 2019

  • All-New Kia e-Niro named ‘Northern Car of the Year’

  • Kia wins Northern Car of the Year for a fourth time

The all electric Kia e-Niro has been named ‘Car of the Year’ 2019 by the Northern Group of Motoring Writers. This is Kia’s fourth ‘Car of the Year’ award from the Northern Group, following wins in 2011 with the Picanto, 2012 for the cee’d and most recently, the Stinger in 2018.

Members of the Northern Group were asked to vote for their favourite vehicles from a long list of newly launched models. The list was cut down to the top five vehicles, before members of the Northern Group met in Yorkshire in September to determine which vehicle was worthy to win the title of ‘Northern Car of the Year’. The Kia e-Niro won with members awarding the car 52 votes.

Raul Martinez, Sales Manager at Speedwell Kia commented; “It’s great to see the e-Niro winning another fantastic award - it’s really proving to be a popular car! We’ve seen a surge of customers visit Speedwell Kia to enquire about the e-Niro and make the switch to a greener vehicle.”

Commenting on the award, Andy Harris, Chairman of the Northern Group of Motoring Writers said: “After much deliberation and a well-attended driving day, The Northern Group of Motoring Writers has chosen its Car of the Year. The Kia e-Niro scooped the top spot due to its combination of class-leading electric range, everyday practicality and top-notch build quality. Affordable pricing is the icing on the cake and a rapidly growing waiting list means the car buying public would seem to agree.”

The Kia e-Niro merges crossover-inspired design with a class leading driving range of 282 miles, zero-emissions driving and enjoyable performance. It includes a next-generation electric powertrain, using new production technologies developed specifically for Kia electric vehicles. The 64kwh battery can be charged to 80 per cent in as little as 54 minutes.

Speedwell Kia stocks a wide range of new and used Kia vehicles, including the Niro Plug-In Hybrid, with prices starting at £31,945.
