  • Kia wins two categories within Company Car Today 100 Awards 2020
  • Sorento wins Large SUV of the Year while e-Niro picks up Electric Car of the Year
  • Niro shortlisted for Crossover of the Year

Kia Motors (UK) Limited has seen further awards success following the Company Car Today 100 Awards 2020, with both the Kia Sorento and Kia e-Niro winning their respective categories, Large SUV of the Year and Electric Car of the Year. The Kia Niro was also a close contender for Crossover of the Year. All models are available for business customers at Speedwell Kia

The e-Niro scooped the Electric Car of the Year award, resulting in a total of 13 awards won since its launch in 2018. Its impressive 282-mile range and high levels of interior space combined with practicality secured the win, alongside its competitive pricing. Fresh for 2020, Kia’s electric line-up will see the addition of the high specification ‘4’ grade e-Niro, replacing the previous ‘First Edition’ model.

The Sorento was awarded Large SUV of the Year having ranked highly in almost every category, including efficiency, driving experience and whole-life cost. As the largest model of the Kia UK line-up, the Sorento has executive-class space and versatility to match its executive-class style, quality and refinement.

Raul Martinez, Sales Manager at Speedwell Kia commented on the win: “It’s fantastic to see such a wide range of models being recognised. From electric to SUV, Kia’s expansive range means there is the perfect option for any company car requirements. Visit Speedwell Kia today to explore our award-winning range or to book a test drive.”

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.”
