Kia SUVs scoop hat-trick of off-road awards
The new Kia Sportage crossover and Sorento SUV have helped the Korean car manufacturer score a hat-trick of accolades at the Total Off Road Awards.
Fending off strong competition from 18 of its closest rivals, the Kia Sportage was triumphant in the Junior SUV category, while the larger Sorento came out on top of the SUV pile; a category that played host to a number of ‘absurdly expensive’ models.
Justifying Kia’s third accolade, Alan Kidd, Editor, Total Off Road magazine said: “The fact that Kia has managed to introduce two such outstanding vehicles in the last 12 months, and to do so at incredibly keen prices, makes it our Manufacturer of the Year, too: no contest."
Describing the win as ‘the icing on the cake’, Managing Director of Kia Motors UK, Michael Cole, commented: “We’ve always been confident about the abilities of the Sportage and Sorento and are delighted that these have been recognised by one of the UK’s leading off-road magazines."
The Kia Sportage and Sorento are available now from £16,645 and £22,495 respectively.
